STRATEGIC ACTION oR just stirring the pot?

Leaders get stuck in the "managerial stirring trap". Hoping to make a change, they take various strategy, marketing and organizational actions, sometimes together and with little support for the reason as to why or definitive ways to assess effectiveness -- effectively just stirring the pot (managerial stirring).  Then, to make matters worse, they don't stick which key actions and decisions long enough before stirring again. Phipps Nelson uses evidence-based practices and insightful assessment to to take strategic action.

Strategy & Marketing MEETs ORGANIZATIONAL DEVELOPMENT in a unique approach to deliver superior strategic performance


The Phipps | Nelson approach starts with a deep understanding of the reality of creating evidence-based strategic performance:


1) Strategy is not complete without leadership


2) Culture is essential in assuring better success through development of a high degree of Market Orientation.


3) Market Orientation is a specific strategic orientation and culture that can be developed increased through programmatic organizational efforts vs. random acts of managerial stirring and lever pulling. Higher degrees of market orientation are scientifically proven to drive higher degrees of long-term organizational performance against key measures.


4) Strategy and Marketing must be considered in an integrated and holistic manner to achieve full potential.


5) Great marketing isn't lazy marketing. There is lots of lazy marketing out there.


Achieving superior strategic performance is the goal. Phipps Nelson offers very specific, unique tools, methods and a model to get  you there. Holistic thinking is key. Strategy is not just planning. Marketing is not just marketing communications and advertising  or  only a job of the marketing department any longer. Going-to-market effectively takes the whole organization. Proven systems, processes are at the heart of every program we work on.  Yet, each program is custom-fit for the strategic goals and uniqueness of the organization and need. We also are focused on sustainable change and self-sufficiency for the long term.


IS SOMEBODY MESSING WITH YOUR BUSINESS MODEL? 


The answer is probably yes! Whether it is competition, technology, regulation or other forces, the 9 components of your business model are likely under siege. If just one component is changed, your model has changed. Will it succeed in the future? Will it become irrelevant?  Are you ready to truly get at your business model design? A straight forward, iterative approach will help you understand, adjust and invent.


Everyone needs some extra help improving their game. So does your organizational strategic performance.  You need to adjust -- tame the things in your control and mitigate the impacts out of your control.
