How I work will ultimately depend on the task at hand, but for most strategic undertakings I follow what I call the SRC approach; Sense-making – Response – Capitalization.
The extent of the sense-making, an advanced approach to diagnosis, will vary but invariably provide value; there is nothing as cost saving as getting something correct the first time.
From there, we identify the proper response, and capitalize on any opportunities that we unearth in order to maximize financial value.
The work may take the form of provided analysis, strategic formulation, executive presentations, workshops, or training, based on what I find relevant and you deem desirable. But you know that, because we have both been here before.
