Strategic Boost Program
Strategy--The Sine Qua
Creation and execution of good
strategy is the single most important determinant of business
success—and is far too important to outsource.
You are smart, you know your business better than do any
outsiders, and you care passionately about success. You have
everything you need for strategy development and
execution—except a methodology that allows you and your
colleagues to build and manage something relevant and good.
Most executives, managers, team leaders, and team members spend
a significant amount of their time thinking about and improving
their tactics—their proficiency with sales calls, the
effectiveness of their advertising, the productivity of their
manufacturing, or the accuracy of their accounting processes.
In most cases, chief executive
officers through team members rightly believe they are being
successful in their quest for tactical improvement, yet do not
see the business results that they believe ought to follow.
Why Companies and
Teams don’t see results…
In many, perhaps most, cases the
reason why they are not seeing business results lies not in
tactical failure but in strategy. After all, even world class
tactics are not of much value if they are not aimed against the
right strategic targets. Unfortunately, our tactical experience
does not equip us very well to think through and solve strategy
But this needn’t be
The Strategic Boost Program is a fast moving exciting four hours
or eight hours designed to give teams from board level to
factory floor level an introduction to strategy that will start
them thinking about their business in a different way. The
program is based on the Prometheus Process, a unique approach to
real strategy first used to develop the very successful air
campaign in the first Gulf War and subsequently profitably
employed by companies ranging in size from tens of billions in
sales to pure start-ups.
The straightforward basic
concept of the Prometheus Process…
Identify and affect centers of
gravity (leverage points) to change the external (market) and
internal (organization) systems very quickly in order to realize
a high resolution picture of the desirable tomorrow you want for
your enterprise while ensuring you have plans to manage
unexpected events as well as successes and failures. In the
planning and execution of your strategy, follow the cardinal
rules of strategy at all levels of your organization and do your
planning and operating in the open (Open Planning) with as many
people as possible participating.
Will thinking and
acting strategically guarantee success?
The answer is no—but it will
dramatically improve your odds and reduce substantially your
risks along the way.
What can you
accomplish in the four hours or eight hours of the Strategic
You and your team will
finish with a new understanding of the importance and concepts
of strategy. You will get a glimpse into what the future of your
organization ought to be and you will identify some of the
centers of gravity against which you should be applying your
resources to get the most out of your very real tactical

many as a dozen flip-chart sizes working templates).
If you are looking for a way to introduce potentially
game-changing ideas to your organization and its teams, to
improve the success of your groups, and to have an exciting and
valuable session at your next meeting, you should seriously
consider the Strategic Boost Program.
