Recent research shows that among large-scale US companies, 57% expect the amount of time and effort they will spend on strategy will grow (vs only 2% that will shrink). Many use strategy consulting companies, and while most companies believe this work is of great quality (66-71% in a 4-year period), not so about its value (37-42%). Why that?
Cost might be an issue, but quite often might be down to the company’s inability to leverage the strategy work to its full potential.
Should a company ‘own’ its strategy? Most would agree, but, could it do so by fully outsourcing it? Could an in-house strategy team produce the same quality output? What would be the impact of being able to fully leverage high-quality strategy? … more importantly, if so, how can all of this be done?
“Strategy in Action”, based on c.20 years of both in-house and external strategy development experience across small and large multinational banks, is a ‘starter-for-ten’ on this path.
