Strategic Consulting

Clarity, alignment, and execution are at the heart of strategic success. Development of effective strategy involves making choices about the most important focus areas and priorities of an organization. A clear strategic roadmap allows organizations to be accountable for specific progress and enables a filter to determine when to say yes or no to opportunities.

Strategic Planning and Roadmap Development

Our approach to strategic planning focuses on developing a concise “roadmap” that becomes a living document, easily understood by and accessible to all members of an organization.  Navigation by this roadmap leads to a clearer 3-5 year vision and strategic intent. Most organizations experience a strong day-to-day reactive pull that demands focus on operational details to the detriment of longer-range objectives. A strategic roadmap, however, calls for periodic higher order reviews of organizational direction and prompts strategic course corrections.

Strategic Alignment

When organizations are misaligned with competing goals, strategies inconsistent with core values, or operations out of sync with organizational culture, performance suffers.  SLC works with executive leadership teams to assess and recalibrate alignment, allowing for stronger collaboration and focus on what is ultimately best for the organization.
