You are wrestling with a wicked problem and you are looking for outside expertise and perspective.
Sometimes things do not go as planned.
You are looking for impartial outside expertise to help recover your program.
Let’s build something together.
Translating a vision into action is hard. Using our proven step by step process will get you underway in no time.
Define your direction of travel
You have articulated your vision, goals and the “Why” behind your vision. We will determine how this is interpreted by stakeholders with the goal to identify disconnects and blind spots. This feedback is used to sharpen your vision and create a initial True North statement that we will build on in the next steps.
Define your roadmap
You have an idea what capabilities need to be in place to deliver on your vision. We will define a roadmap creating a high level visual representation of the work. Combined with the True North statement this roadmap creates a transparent canvas to validate assumptions, and align on priorities.
Define how we will deliver
We determined what is important and what we want to do. Now we define how the program will be executed and managed. We go deep on team roles, skills, financial and other resource needs, governance, and communication structure.
Throughout the previous steps we will have identified potential risk, opportunities and challenges. Now it is time to pressure test the plan, flesh out challenges and define mitigation plans. In addition we will make potential trade-offs visible through “What if” simulations. Goal is to ensure the team is equipped to respond with confidence to any future known or unknown challenge.
Bring everything we created together. Create material can is easily understood by all levels of the organization as it relates to vision, True North, immediate next steps and the role of your audience. Hold governance meeting and decide on Go / No Go for kickoff.
