Strategy Development and Execution

A majority of all strategic initiatives and change projects fail

Many studies and evaluations have found that a majority of change oriented initiatives are (partially) unsuccessful. This makes sense, strategy development is hard and execution even more difficult. This applies strongly to governmental agencies that operate in a tricky (political) environment of constantly changing priorities and agendas.
We believe that technological developments are creating opportunities and challenges to improve strategy development and execution:

P

Better availability and quality of data to measure progress and success.

Better tools for collaboration, communication and project management.

g

More flexible technologies that allow for more modular and changeable processes and infrastructures.

O
v

Speed of change making long-term development difficult to plan and foresee.

q

Adoption and change tiredness create obstacles towards uptake of technologies.

Continuous addition of new technologies could increase fragmentation and future legacy.

In our experience, the success of strategy development and execution depend on a careful balance between short term goals and long term visions and mission, as well as commitment to goals and being flexible enough to change them.

We help our clients do exactly that. Based on current trends and developments in technology and society, as well as any insights and data from the organization, we help governments and public sector agencies create strategies that help them achieve their organizational goals and that fit into the vision of where the world and the organization are going.
Examples of the types of services we frequently provide to our clients are the following:
