A great product, solid business plan, and eager employees. If an organization doesn’t have strong leadership or a strategic plan to bring it all together, a bright future begins to dim. While some consulting firms try to fit all of their clients into a single plan, Advisicon takes the time to learn about an organization, creating a custom-made action plan for each client.
During the initial meeting, we talk with stakeholders to find out what is working, what the pain points are, and plans for the future. Working to improve leadership in organizations big and small, we present methodologies designed to create a process that guides management to desired long-term goals as well as short-term successes.
Who needs strategic planning? Any organization that finds themselves maintaining their business instead of growing it. This could mean a complete overhaul of the strategic management to providing a fresh set of eyes on a single project.
In larger cases, strategic planning can mean analyzing the organization and finding step-by-step solutions in every department, including:
Once a plan is in place, Advisicon will provide executives with the steps they need to move the organization forward. Depending on the situation, we set up meetings on a quarterly, monthly, or even weekly basis to discuss progress, pitfalls, and goals for the future.
In many cases, a different perspective is all a stalled program needs to get up and running again. Advisicon carries no preconceived notions to any organization, so we can give decision makers a focused plan to help them move forward.
Advisicon believes leadership coaching goes hand in hand with strategic planning. In many smaller organizations, this discussion is a large part of our consulting. For example, a business may be dealing with a large employee turnover rate, so understaffing, inexperience, and too much time spent on training are taking away from the bottom line.
Why is the turnover rate so high? We’ll investigate the possible reasons-poor working conditions, incomplete hiring practices, or personality clashes-and work with management to implement corrections. A solution could be a more thorough interview process, offering something other than monetary benefits, or just changing how a manager deals with their employees.
No matter the roadblock, Advisicon works closely with leadership to make a good organization even better. With clear direction, our clients are able to provide their employees-and themselves-with all the tools they need to excel and move the business forward.
