Only the Innovative Survive

When is the last time you applied innovation to the process of how your organization develops and executes marketing strategy? Just as the pace of business and change is accelerating, so too should your strategic marketing management process.

The reality is if you don’t own your culture, your culture will own you. If you don’t engage your workforce in new and compelling ways, someone else will. Either you're going to tell stories that spread, or you will become irrelevant.

Only the Innovative Survive.

Question: What’s Wrong With The Traditional Approach To Strategy?
Answer: Nearly Everything.

The approach taken by traditional strategy firms has been broken for years. It’s dated. It often operates in a vacuum. It takes far too long to deliver value (if value is ever delivered). It creates a dependent relationship on a consulting firm stifling the client’s internal talent and leadership development. And, It’s way too expensive. In short, traditional strategy consulting is just more of the same, being sold as best practices. 

My Solution: 
• You own the process. I simply provide the framework. 
• You own the delivery. I’m there if you need me.
• I don’t control the knowledge. I transfer it. 
• I don’t replace your team or do their job for them. I develop them.
