Hello, my name is Rudy Champa and I am Managing Director of Strategy Partners International. My job is to personally facilitate this strategic development process tool with our clients.
What our clients will tell you is that this methodology is straight forward and quite productive in quickly and easily focusing a kind of DIY kit for strategic development.
Our book "Brainware for the Strategist... A Guide to Strategic Thinking in the Boardroom" is newly published by me and Roger Handley, MD of Strategy Workshops in the UK and explains the concepts in this process.
Strategy Partners International is an independent US based organization headquartered in California with International affiliates in ten other countries all dedicated to assisting our clients achieve their strategic objectives without "telling them what to do". We have a philosophical bias against that kind of management consulting when it comes to business strategy with the CEO and Senior Management teams. What we focus on is in utilizing our considerable experience with this process by facilitating strategic thinking work sessions with top management teams that seek our process skills.
Defining strategy is one of those few tasks where an outside facilitator can add real value to the meetings. This is because strategy will cut across all functions in the organization and any one person from inside the business who stands up to facilitate these meetings will be seen by others to be biased or partisan, whether this is true or not! This is particularly the case when the CEO/President /MD orchestrates the meetings.
We do not seek to
teach strategy to management but this process has
much educational value to any individual that has
not been expected to participate in defining
strategy in the past. It is an interesting
observation that we tend to promote the people that
have excelled in their operational function. "We
then expect them to excel strategically from that
point forward and we have found that often, these
folks appreciate a little help without "telling them
what to do".
Regards, Rudy Champa
