At Exkalibur, we use the term Action Planning to represent the marriage of “STRATEGERY” (our term to poke a little fun at the stodgy term Strategic Planning) and EXECUTION.
“Strategic Planning” sounds like it requires either an Ivy League education or a GE auditorium to make it work.
It doesn’t and we want to make it more accessible because, at it’s heart, it’s really very simple.
Following the adage that “plans are useless, planning is indispensable”, our Action Planning process helps you create a realistically achievable plan and integrate it throughout your company.
Developing your Strategery takes many forms, but we focus on practical strategies to implement those plans, not just to talk about them.
Plans are useless … planning is indispensable!
All of us have been involved in annual planning processes and, invariably, they amount to very little because people are worn out, a detailed action plan is never created and there’s no rigorous follow-up process to make sure that the plans are actually implemented.
That’s why we call it Action Planning … to emphasize our focus on execution and implementation.
It’s important to develop a business strategy to accelerate business growth, and the action plan to implement it.
Our seasoned experience in formulating and implementing practical business strategy – using a clear Action Plan - is critical to fueling superior business performance.
We bring deep experience to the strategic process – but with practical, realistic strategies, not lofty plans and arcane theories.
We don’t create “credenza food”, those large 3-ring notebooks that some strategy consultants leave behind to gather dust.
Our deep experience in the middle market, working closely with CEO’s and CFO’s, has convinced us that building an Action Plans is the way to transcend their challenges.T
his is what’s at the heart of our role as a “trusted advisor” for our clients.
In simple terms, business strategy represents a systematic approach to prioritize the opportunities available to you to help you choose those that will give you a competitive advantage.I
