Strategic Planning & Board Governance

"A recent survey of more than 400 global CEOs found that executional excellence was the number one challenge facing corporate leaders.   Studies have found that two-thirds to three-quarters of large organizations struggle to implement their strategies.”  Harvard Business Review

Organizations today are faced with the challenge of transforming their business to keep pace with a rapidly changing market environment. A key component of this challenge is translating high level corporate strategy and corresponding strategic goals into execution effectiveness in the form of prioritized programs and initiatives that allocate scarce resources to the transformational changes that will best position your company for future success.

One of the most important factors to successfully implementing corporate strategy is ensuring that plans are in place to acquire, develop, organize and lead your most critical company asset – your people. Resources are a foundational pillar of future success for all companies and need to be enabled to reach their full potential in order for companies to transform and attain future strategic goals. 

Developing effective strategic plans begin with asking the right questions and utilizing data that will support growth.  At Sartor and Associates, we facilitate Strategic Planning in order to maximize short and long-term achievements while taking into consideration all aspects of the business and industry landscape. 

Strategic Planning Checklist

Here are just some of the resource related considerations facing CEOs today:

  • Do we have a clearly articulated corporate strategy and do all our employees fully understand how they will contribute to our strategic goals?
  • Do we have clear succession plans in place for all key senior roles?
  • Is the deep knowledge of our key senior individuals documented for transition to succession candidates to ensure ongoing continuity?
  • Do we have a clear understanding of the capabilities that we will need to be successful in the future?  Do we have a plan to develop and build these capabilities?
  • What is the culture of our company?  Is it producing engaged employees and retaining our most talented people? Do we have development plans in place for our staff with highest potential?
