"With Business Strategy, you cannot be everything to everyone. If you decide to go north, you cannot go south at the same time.” ~ Jeroen De Flander

Some research on the effectiveness of strategy execution argues that 50% bullseye-icon.pngof all strategies fail, while others indicate it is as high as 90%. What ever the data, it seems clear... organizations are having a difficult time, developing, maintaining and aligning to a company strategy. Understanding the value of, and need for, a strategic plan and subsequent company alignment to that strategy is a great place to start. 

Here is How We Can Help 

To help build skills to improve strategic execution, Advantexe works with companies to develop interactive and hands-on learning journeys. Our business strategy learning journeys integrate critical strategy models and frameworks related to assessing, planning and execution.  By providing learners with the foundations of strategic management, learners are better able to explore implications of business decision-making and how to use business and financial insight as well as analytic data to effectively execute strategic decisions in both the short- and long-term. 

Our business strategy engagements are delivered either self-paced, virtual live, instructor-led live, or a combination that fits your needs. Programs typically include:

  • Assessment 
  • Pre-work
  • Live or virtual learning  sessions
  • Computer-based business simulation
  • Application tools
  • Measurement and impact studies
  •  ... just to name a few.

The Power of Practice - Simulation-centric Learning

At the heart of the solution, a computer-based business simulation provides experience strategy-screen-shoot.jpgand practice for the application of newly learned skills, in a risk-free and learn-by-doing learning environment.  The simulation allows learners to choose and identify a strategy and then implement it through cross-functional decision-making. In real time, learners are able to see the cause and effects that their decisions have on the effectiveness of strategy execution and the metrics that matter. 

Program Objectives Include:

  • Enhance strategic thinking capabilities
  • Utilize tools for strategic analysis and strategy formulation
  • Practice using frameworks for business strategy
  • Understand contemporary strategic models
  • Conduct a competitor analysis and establish competitive advantage
  • Link strategy to execution
  • Create a strategic plan
  • Understand the financial implications of strategic and tactical decisions
