“We team up with the CEO and their leadership teams to set the right agenda, create new possibilities, make better decisions, reduce room for misalignment and push for results.”

- JAHN BJØRN

 
 

Our footprints:

 

1. Set the
right agenda

The first part of our work is to identify an ambitious agenda for growth. Without a bold and visionary agenda the ensuing work will not get off the ground. The agenda should expand the perspective, bring in novel points of view and be meaningful in all corners of the company. Setting the right agenda is not just a whiteboard exercise. It requires a deep understanding of the business, its customers and the megatrends defining the world.

 

2. Create new
possibilities

After having set the right growth agenda it is time to expand the field of opportunities. This is a creative, but disciplined phase. We combine imagination with what we know and together we create fresh and meaningful new ideas. The outcome is tangible business potentials within the current core, but also adjecent and new business areas – as well as clarity, ownership and energy in the leadership team.

 

3. Make better
decisions

Now it is time to select and combine the ideas which will work. Tough work where darlings will be killed and only the best and brightest ideas remain. We evaluate alternatives, look at them from multiple angles and take all aspects into account. We are about to make critical choices and must not rush the process due to impatience. When we are ready, we tie the knot.

 

4. Reduce room for misalignment

All decisions, goals and action plans are then described in detail in the Strategic Growth Playbook. No leeways for interpretations should be left open, as this is always where good-intentioned plans derail. The objective of the playbook is to make everything tangible and explicit, to bridge the strategic, the tactical and the operational level – and to place you in a position where you can put the strategy to work on Monday morning.

 

5. Push for
results

Consultants usually look forward to the day where they can deliver their 200+ page slideshow, send the bill and drive off. Our job is only half done at this point. We are keen to convert decisions into actions and to make sure that things really happen. Therefore we stay on board and help bring about real change. Some may see us as pushy, but that is the best way to make the stone roll.
