Are you in a do or die struggle for Profitable Growth?

Is your strategy differentiated enough to avoid the quicksand? Have you lost your ability to compete?

strategic positioning for profitable growthLearn “Where-to-Play and How-to-Win”! Your growth starts with a decisive strategic plan that has the POWER to INFLUENCE your marketplace. Every business needs to develop the foresight that can create more customers, operate more efficiently and increase profits by 100%. And with a robust strategic marketing process you can differentiate, select and amplify your best choices to more fully penetrate your market…build those clear connections between the positions you take and the growth in profits and cash flow that management and investors focus on.

Strategic failure can happen across any of the three elements of strategic management: inappropriate objectives, irrational strategic positioning or ineffective steering of strategy over time, whether continuous or through acquisition.

These strategic blunders and top-level decisions are the primary culprit a remarkable 81 percent of the time in destroying business value. Many business leaders can’t answer with certainty the three most basic questions:

  • Why is our business performance following its current path?
  • Where are current policies, decisions and strategy leading us?
  • How can future revenue, profits and productivity prospects be improved?

WHY? Because a strategic commitment is a huge expenditure of time, energy and money – a foundational issue that is supposed to change the trajectory of your business in a massive way. If it fails, you could be dead!

NOW IMAGINE your company is growing profitably into the future…it has:

  • Developed a set of ideas (differentiate) that were quickly and decisively acted upon with entrepreneurial insight and intensity (active risk taking).
  • Created superior choices to position the company and reach its objectives: what to provide, where to play and how to win, relative to the market and rivals (these are very rare activities).
  • Made the strategic commitments ($, time, energy) for positioning, acquisition, new market entry, and building the resources, capabilities and systems that form the core of the company.
  • Completed the strategy work for successfully navigating and amplifying its position: adjusting and operating more efficiently over-time

Winning is HARD if you don’t have the foresight from a strategic marketing process…Business man and mountain

  • You may be event driven (market positioning and strategy are not events)…day-to-day activities are stealing thinking time and energy, preventing it from successfully reaching financial goals.
  • The VISION is not intrinsic to the organization or there is no vision…it’s too FLUFFY!
  • You haven’t chosen the right objectives / 1st principles…not meeting the “real” challenge…perhaps the market has changed or rivals are driving you out of existence.
  • You don’t have a strategy process that is relevant to the market – typical of template style planning…filling in the blanks with no real meaning or differentiation.
  • There are insufficient choices, decision-making and commitment to the important initiatives as well as mistaking tactics for strategy.
  • Strategies are failing because they aren’t executed well…60% of organizations rate their companies weak at execution (action phase): their technology is not working to promise and the management team is not executing to plan.

With an understandable strategic marketing process a business can deliberately formulate a great strategy and market position by performing these must have activities correctly:

  • It must position itself by choosing its key objectives including the business model as to how it will create economic value and generate money via a differentiated, low-cost or other combinatorial advantage.
  • Position the organization relative to others in its market as the superior choice to meet customer needs and demands.
  • Generating the best choices and making those high ROI decisions relative to the needed investments in time, energy and money.
  • Position and steer the organization over-time through policies, decisions and operating plans that affect resource flows and performance at the point-of-work for profit and growth.
  • Position management and members of the organization as a partnership – personal and social leadership capabilities that improve behaviors and organizational response and agility to its dynamic internal and external environment.
