An alarming number of companies simply don't fully understand where they are today which makes it difficult for them to get to where they want to go.


“Having been through many stratey development sessions in my career, I found the Select Strategies approach and methodology far superior.. their experience, insights and tools helped us clarify, get aligned and achieve real results quickly."
John Nevin, CEO, Instant Upright

Establishing the baseline of where your business is today is a fundamental step to making growth happen. Without it bad decisions will be made resulting in costly mistakes and limitations on growth opportunities.

The first stage in our process focuses on establishing a rigorous and robust understanding of exactly where you are today. An understanding that is grounded in realism and that has been informed by your clients, your prospects, your competitors and your team.

Our approach involves:

  • A deep dive analysis of all your existing materials - from business plans to positioning statements and partner strategies
  • A review of all relevant secondary industry literature - from research reports to market reviews and competitor materials
  • Primary research conducted either face to face, via telephone or through electronic surveys with selected clients, prospects and management team members
  • A comprehensive review and analysis of the collective findings

Our output delivers:

  • A comprehensive assessment of where the company is today including the identification of key growth accelerators and inhibitors and a full SWOT analysis

Commit to a Shared Vision » Our Services » Select Strategies

Making growth happen needs a shared vision of the direction the company is taking, the distinctive competencies you have to get you there and a team all pulling in the same direction. Every decision made - from target customer selection through to product development - has a common foundation of what is trying to be achieved. Without it people will do their own thing and it will be all but impossible to craft a winning strategy.


Devising the Battlecard » Our Services » Select Strategies

The cornerstone of this process is a set of strategy creation tools that will be explained and worked through to devise the business strategy and battlecard for your company. Finding the sweet spot means understanding where there is a true alignment between potential customers' needs and your distinctive competencies. This process filters market opportunity down so you can focus your energy on those customers most likely to need you.
