I'll put it out there straight away. I love strategy! I love researching a topic, exploring opportunities and then really focusing in on what's most important. But, over the past years, I've realised that not everyone is the same. People can feel daunted, overwhelmed, or simply not know where to start. So, we've decided to help. Not only have we recently created a suite of blog posts on strategy, we're also developing a range of eBooks that takes you step-by-step from start to finish. First up, strategy for social enterprises.
In the guide, you'll learn about:
Understanding your current position: how you're performing
Analysing the external context: what's happening in your sector
Engaging your stakeholders: find out what people really think
Prioritising your objectives: how to make strategy decisions
Implementing your plan: putting your strategy into action
Evaluation your progress: measuring how well you're doing
And in line with our sustainability principles, we've designed the guide so that you can create your strategy on your own simply by working through the steps. We've even included a handy checklist to help you on your way.
We also know how difficult it can be to find the time and the space to dedicate to strategy development, so we're here to help. Get in touch if you need any input into any - or all- of the stages. We'd be delighted to work with you!
