Strategic Planning and Execution

Every business needs a road map or path to follow to ensure long-term success (3-5 years). Some businesses are so busy running the operations and dealing with day-to-day crises that there is little time devoted to planning. At CTG, we can either facilitate the strategic planning process for you and your management team or develop a plan and support in its execution. Essential parts of our Strategic planning include:

  • Business Diagnostic and Analysis – Re-affirm or assist in developing Vision, Mission and Core values. Complete a SWOT analysis, Competitive Matrix and Value Proposition. Chart organizational structure, map key business processes, roles, responsibilities and accountability
  • Design and Develop Strategic Direction – Identify essential goals and objectives. Develop the necessary financial, operational and business development plans and tactics to support the objectives, supported by actionable Key Performance Indicators
  • Execution Plan – Develop financial reporting and daily dashboards to measure success. Expand on pro-forma financials and cash flow statements to support funding applications or strengthen relationships with banks, investors or franchising opportunities. Ensure we are building business valuation for possible mergers, acquisitions, succession or transition
