Strategy Engagement

Strategy Engagement


It’s easy to make blanket recommendations like, “You need to crystallize your mission, vision, and values. You need a logo. You need a website. You need to do some advertising.” This approach is a one-size-fits-all approach, with no clear reason for why each step is needed, what value is expected from each deliverable, and how much resources should be invested in each. The question: “how do we measure success,” needs to be asked at every stage of every investment in your organization.

A strategy session with our partners will bring light to clear a path of action, backed by data, collaboration, and insight.

A unique approach

“No two organizations’ needs are the same. Every organization has unique challenges and unique opportunities. And so, the growth of your business will require a unique approach. An in depth strategy session includes discovery and data collection, revealing your organization’s strengths, weaknesses, and opportunities for growth. By better understanding who you are, where you are, and the industry you play in, we can flesh out a plan-of-attack (strategy) to achieve your goals.”

• Kal Sayid, Founder •

Approach: Flexible. Organic. Dynamic.

We first collect as much relevant data. Second, we establish realistic goals and a plan to achieve them based on the collected information. Through a combination of discussions prompted by questions, we’ll map out a series of discoveries, ideas, goals, and ultimately a strategy to best move forward with. Collaboration will be the key to success. Our strategy sessions are fun, engaging, and generate actionable next steps. Our partners receive an in-depth report following the strategy session, capturing insights and actionable next steps.
