Strategic Planning Consultants
- 95% of a company’s employees are unaware of, or do not understand its strategy.
- 60% of companies do a poor job executing their strategy.
- 85% of executive leadership teams spend less than one hour per month discussing their unit’s strategy, with 50% spending no time at all.
- 60% of organizations don’t link their financial budgets to strategic priorities.
- 99% of companies don’t have a Most Important Goal – MIG, or fully understand their value proposition.
- 80% of the digital transformation and industrial transformation fail.
These results are usually because the company’s strategic plan wasn’t robust enough to handle the change management required to implement it. Group50® utilizes a structured approach utilizing a robust set of strategic planning tools that are designed to develop a comprehensive and integrated strategic plan that builds clarity and consensus for all stakeholders. Utilizing the Business Hierarchy of Needs®, our proprietary change management framework, we work with clients to develop a robust strategic plan and implementation plan which addresses the current and future needs of the business.
Our strategic planning process is done in person and virtually in sprints which allows more time for a broader group of stakeholders to “Work On The Business”, improving buy-in, change management and strategic execution. Through our process, every level of the organization participates in the development and execution of strategy and implementation takes less time.
When we complete the development of a strategic plan and roll it out, via our unique approach to Strategic Execution, every stakeholder will understand their role in its implementation and their accountability metrics.

Group50® has developed a proven strategic planning process that utilizes the “Where to Play” (Market Facing), and “How To Win” (Operational) methodology. The development of a strategic plan for the first time or its yearly reiteration needs to follow a consistent process such as the one shown above.
Our holistic approach encourages senior leadership teams to look at their strategic needs as well as the strategic and operating gaps in their business processes and organization.
We facilitate the development of strategies, strategic roadmaps and implementation through the assessments and workshops that are part of our process:
