Growth & Innovation Strategy


Growth & Innovation Strategy

Growth is always hard, but in times of change and uncertainty, even successful companies can face steep obstacles to achieving it. Trusted business models run out of steam. Disruptive startups seem to come from nowhere. Organizations so good at doing what made them successful face the “innovator’s dilemma” – and become victims of their own success. Leadership teams are too busy executing to think long-term, or just don’t have a process in which they feel confident.

Traditional approaches to strategy look to the past to predict the future. They are facing the wrong way. We believe that when you take a “future back” approach to setting strategy, you can build new paths to growth that have not yet been imagined.

What we do

Organizing to realize new opportunities

We help to design a portfolio of opportunities across businesses and build organization momentum for success. This includes:

– Manage resource allocation across a portfolio of core and new growth.

– Prioritize customer-driven opportunities.

– Get stakeholders aligned around a new strategy and build the case for change.

Creating the vision to own the future

We work with leaders at both the enterprise and division level to align on a shared vision for the future: who we will become, where to play, how to win. Specifically, we help organizations to:

– Identify high-potential growth opportunities in adjacent and “white space” markets.

– Understand fast-moving and disruptive trends and the implications for your business.

– Identify high-potential growth opportunities in adjacent and “white space” markets.

– Define the role of M&A in the growth portfolio.

Identify and pursue game-changing ideas to accelerate growth.

– Create a customer “jobs to be done” view of the marketplace and opportunities.

– Develop a shared view of future aspirations, and a detailed plan for how to achieve them.

Making it happen

We help create and support focused execution by putting into place the right milestones, targets, and learning programs:

– Blueprint new business models.

– Understand customer “jobs to be done”.

– Create and implement performance metrics and other systems to pursue the new and different.

Develop plans to learn for new business launches.

– Our approach is highly collaborative, driven by our values and with a focus on having real and lasting impact. Learn more about our frameworks below.
