Designed for Growth- Art & Science of How Your Business Performs

Designed for Growth – the Art & Science of How Your Business Performs

If you want to grow your business, go in a new direction or operate more effectively, you need to change your approach within some of the major components of how your business works.  A smart strategy will pull together the most important objectives for moving forward. 

In this workshop, you'll learn how to use a straightforward template for visualizing and assessing the major drivers of sales and operations. It will help you develop a strategy consisting of the main factors that affect differentiation and growth. 

You’ll be better able to see the big picture objectively, while narrowing your focus to the right areas for improvement. You'll learn how to apply creative thinking to generate new ideas, as well as how to identify key progress indicators.

You may uncover opportunities for new customer groups, new products, new revenue streams or new operations priorities.  Or, you may discover a way to unify and better leverage a variety of separate initiatives, under one strategy. 


We’ll walk-through the 12 key elements of an aligned business model and how they work together to produce a competitive strategy. Then, we’ll apply the model to your own business. You’ll learn how to create strategic objectives by comparing how your business operates today, and what you need to do to grow.

We’ll also look at a few examples that may inspire new ideas. You’ll leave with a draft version of your Business Model Blueprint, which you can use later to develop an executable strategy.  You’ll also be eligible for a one-hour post-workshop session to prioritize and improve key strategies.


*  Business owners serious about growing or going in a new direction.
*  Leaders of promising businesses in competitive markets.
*  Executives navigating change, new offerings or uncertain times.
Those with decision making at a strategic level will benefit the most.
