Organizations that use StratOp are asking big questions, questions like “What’s our vision?” “How do we make a greater impact?” or “How do we move forward from here?” They’re looking for alignment, growth, and clear next steps.
Most strategic planning processes move as quickly as possible from perceived problem to assumed solution, missing key insights that give clarity, buy-in, and a competitive advantage.
StratOp is different, emphasizing perspective first. When we first understand where we are and how we got here, our plans for the future are built on sharper insight and provide more effective solutions.
How long does it take? StratOp is a 3-day facilitated process that guides your team to collaborate on gaining perspective about the past and present, and on developing a plan for the future. After the StratOp you'll possess a clear action plan, purposefully crafted to deliver measurable results.
We struggle with execution. Will you show us how? More than a one-time planning event, StratOp is a full system that moves from the big picture vision to practical action steps. We'll help you install an accessible suite of management tools that equip your team and ensure your vision becomes a reality.
Who is it for? Powered by the Paterson Process, StratOp has helped for-profit companies, start-ups, not-for-profits and churches, schools and colleges, professional sports teams, and even the government of an entire country. If your team needs clarity, alignment, momentum and growth, StratOp is for you.
Is it industry specific? Strategic planning is provides the template for specific industries. There are many aspects of strategic planning that cross industries. Mission, vision, values, culture, target market analysis, opportunity matrix, are all common in almost every industry. There is no better planning system than the StratOp in the world. It’s track record speaks for itself.
Will our facilitator be good enough for us? StratOp facilitators are of the highest quality. They must go through a screening process. They cannot be rookies. They must be experienced leaders with a track record of successes. If they make it through the screening process, they must undergo extensive training in this world class system.
We know the “why” but can you help us with the how? We’ll start with "why", but StratOp strategically helps you plan "the how".
Simon Sinek's book "Start With Why" invites us to notice the shift in how people think today. The marketing world is filled with strategies about how to gain followers the easy way: social network like mad, buy air time, and find brand ambassadors. But the "start with why" concept is really about the order in which our brains sequence information. Our brains constantly scan for simplicity and it usually starts with "why would we do that?"
Why are we here?
Why does it matter?
Why does our market need us?
