Creating a robust strategic plan for a company, especially those companies who have hit an economic or growth Inflection Point requires a well thought through approach that allows a company to reinvent itself.



Group50’s Strategic Planning playbook, follows our Business Hierarchy of Needs® change management framework consisting of three primary levels:

  1. Data Analysis and Planning
  2. Knowledge and Change Management
  3. Implementation

Group50® utilizes 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 (customers, employees, contract workers and vendors) in the following areas: Most Important Goal (MIG), Mission, Vision, Values, Value Proposition, Key Business Levers, Financial Goals, “Where To Play”, “How To Win”, Human Capital and Digital technology. You can read more about this approach in a newly published book by our CEO, Jim Gitney – “Strategy Realized – The Business Hierarchy of Needs® – Turning Strategy Into Results”.

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. It takes a bit longer and is more expensive, but the statistics indicate that most companies waste the money they spend anyway.

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. We insure that Anti-Strategy doesn’t exist in a company.
