Strategy Development & Meeting Assistance

Small & Medium Business IT and IS Strategy

The computer was once only available to large businesses. So was the concept of designed management systems.  Today that’s no longer true.

As for systems, if you want to improve, if you want to accomplish your goals regularly, if you want things to “just get done”, you need to create systems that will support your goals and aspirations. Running your business by the seat of your pants, in a hit or miss, “we’ll figure it out as we go” way just won’t cut it.

Instead, every business — no matter how large or small — needs to factor in both computers and rational design into their management systems. But having the money to support a full-time CIO and staff of systems designers is more than most small, medium, and micro businesses can afford.

What’s a small business to do?

Our strategy practice will give you a CIO on an as needed basis to help you:

  • determine your IS & IT Strategy
  • extend the strategy into plans for accomplishing your goals
  • review your existing goals and plans for reasonableness

Strategy Facilitation

There’s a point in any business’s growth where it has the people who know what they need to know. Or where it can bring in the specialist consultants to determine where to go. And let’s face it, no one knows your business better than you do.

But converting that knowledge into a strategy?

That’s a different kettle of fish. After all, it’s not like you are continually creating strategies and plans. Once a year? Maybe. If you’re disciplined.

When you were the only one making the plans it was easy (sort of) to get everyone in line with your plan. But now that you’re bigger and need to take into account other people’s ideas, you’re probably experiencing difficulties reaching agreement and focusing on what is important.

That’s where we can help.

We can apply our facilitation experience and our strategic planning experience to help your experts to determine their best path forward.  We don’t supply the content. You do. We supply the process for turning that content into a real, achievable path.

Meeting Facilitation

As Project Managers, Strategic Managers, and Business/Process/Systems Analysts we’ve spent most of our professional lives either in meetings or running meetings. Along the way we’ve learned a little something about running meetings. It’s called Meeting Facilitation if you’re being a stickler for proper terminology. And with all our experience doing it, we have to be good.

You supply the content, we supply the process.
