PLAN TO THRIVE
Success is seldom spontaneous.
If you’re looking for a Plan to Thrive, here’s why you should consider our approach to big picture change:
- Your Plan works specifically for your brand and the problem(s) you need to resolve.
- Incisive interviews enable us to rapidly build a detailed view of your situation
- Clear and simple principles ensure effective decision guidelines
- Costed as a project against defined deliverables
Finding value in a changing world
Markets change. People change. Circumstances, supply chains, interests all move. Your brand puts a public face to how you compete effectively amidst this melee. Stepping back to take in the big picture lets you see where you’re currently positioned compared with how your business planning needs you to perform and, from there, to build a Plan to Thrive.
Be a confident brand
Every brand has a potential position in a market where it can make the most of its capabilities. That sweet spot takes in everything that the brand has going for it, the relative weaknesses and vulnerabilities of competitors, the prevailing market conditions and trends and so much more.
Business, brand or both
You can use our Plan to Thrive to interrogate and address broader business or specific brand strategy. Define the scope of what you want to include, and we’ll design a specific approach for what you need to resolve.
Each Plan starts, middles and ends with listening. We use structured interviews, careful analysis and creative flair to find where your business or brand needs to position itself next in order to win, and what it’s going to take for that to happen.
The benefit of working with a brand strategy team like ours is that we don’t just run a process. We don’t shoe-horn. We don’t pre-decide.
When should you build a Plan to Thrive?
Plan to Thrive, as the name suggests, is best applied when you’re looking to better understand the strategy your business or brand will need going forward. You may have identified your brand is not as strong as it used to be. Or you may be looking to rescale (up or down) and needing to rethink your brand on that basis. Perhaps your operating environment has changed, requiring deep change to how you participate in a market.
This may take some time
Big picture change like this is not a quick fix, but the consultative approach enables leaders to think through wider operational and cultural implications. Allow a minimum of four to five months to do this properly – longer, if you have more complex decision-making trees or if final decisions need to be made offshore.
