The Strategic Analysis section provides the space for your company to define its Culture, identify External Impacts, evaluate Internal strengths and weaknesses, reflect on Historical Results, and set a strategic Foundation. The combination of these blocks creates the context necessary for your Strategic Focus and Outcomes.
Strategic Focus & Outcomes
The Strategic Focus & Outcomes section is where you map out the specific trajectory of your company. Strategic focus statements are used to describe what your company intends to do. Strategic Outcomes area added to give measurable and time-bound goals defining what you're trying to achieve. This section is segmented into four focus lenses to help channel cross-functional efforts. These are Customer & Market, Product, Operations, and People. Expected Results are the measures you expect to see if your strategy is successfully executed.
The Strategic Actions section is your company’s top-level playbook outlining the most significant actions necessary to achieve your Strategic Outcomes. Aligning actions to outcomes is one of the most important steps in any strategic planning process. Strategic Actions are defined by time-bound deliverables to promote transparency and accountability. While Strategic Focus tends to be more rigid, Strategic Actions must be highly responsive to results making the company agile in its execution.
