  • Owners or senior executives responsible to drive the overall performance of medium sized businesses.
  • General Managers/Managing Directors responsible for a department or division of a larger company.
  • Leaders of professional and trade associations.
  • You may have issues including worrisome business results, uncertainty about the future, competitors outperforming, employees not on “one team”, and no in-house business planning expertise.
  • You need something simple but not simplistic, to drive results and get all employees on the same page, to deliver the required customer value.
  • It starts with a detailed briefing with the champion about the process and about the current business situation.
  • 2- day, facilitated, off-site session - to set the vision, areas of focus, corporate objectives, measures and key initiatives
  • Clients may choose to undertake a customer and/or employee survey in advance, or after the 1st session.
  • 1-day session to finalize the Strategic Framework and to consider its implementation.
  • Hewat Strategic Edge provides a final Strategic Plan, which can be used as a road map and communications tool.
  • We have developed a proven process; one that works every time. But:
  • We have two criteria to assess our worth. First, we expect that at the end of a facilitated process, you and your team will say that “this was one of our best business days”. Second, we expect to create a product that you are using a couple of years later to drive performance.
  • If we can meet these two criteria, we will be pleased to customize the process.

Get everyone focused on a road map to
sustained growth and profitability!
