Strategy is a plan to win.
Without one, can you really expect to?
Strategy in our thinking has three major parts: business, brand and identity. Successful organizations are able to communicate each part and how they support each other. Brand strategy supports business strategy. Identity strategy supports brand strategy. Seems like a lot of strategies but it makes great sense when put into practice.
Can you state your company's business strategy?
In the 20-plus years we've been working for clients, we've found many business have a difficult time describing their plan to win. The bigger the company, the harder it is to find someone that can state it with clarity. We know that understanding a business' strategy is the key to enabling brand and identity strategies to foster success. Why is something so critical to success so hard to find?
Pictures make strategic concepts tangible
The quickest and most effective way to define, communicate and refine a complex idea is with a good picture. When communicating strategy, a chart, diagram, image or graphic rendering of some kind will always help establish and present a clearer image of what a win looks like than words alone. Words and briefs can elaborate and define steps to be taken but the picture makes the idea more tangible.
