Strategic Literacy: The Unique Approach to Reading to Get Uncommon Results

Every client we ever had gets to a point where they have to convince others - peers, subordinates, and their managers - to do things for them. They have to convince people 1:1 and as a group. And the thing we have seen with most of our clients is that even though they accelerate and do pretty well when they're young and they deploy technical skills, at a certain point unless they learn change management, influence, and persuasion skills, they can't operate as leaders.

Why it matters?

  • You must be able to convince others to act.

  • Creating flexible, responsive organizations.

  • Finding and developing creative, innovative people.

  • Building and leveraging intellectual capital.

  • Encouraging and managing continuous change.

Given how big of a topic Change Management is for our clients, we created a Center of Excellence within the Strategy Control Room (within Advanced Level membership) and released 2 significant Batches of materials within the Change Management Center of Excellence:

Our Best Thinking on Change Management - 1,078 SLIDES (Batch 1)

+

Full Change Management Study - 1,267 SLIDES (Batch 2)

=

2,345 SLIDES

  • Batch 1 is our best practice for change management.

  • Batch 2 is an actual project, showing you how we used the theory from Batch 1 to deliver a Change Management program to a client.

That's a big thing. That's why we have Centers of Excellence:

We show you a theory and we show an example.

HOW TO FIND THE CHANGE MANAGEMENT, INFLUENCE & PERSUASION CENTER OF EXCELLENCE (2,345 SLIDES):

1. Log in to The Strategy Control Room, Advanced Level membership area.

2. See the "CENTER OF EXCELLENCE" dropdown.

3. Select "Change Management Influence/Gravitas (Batch 1)" and "Change Management Influence/Gravitas (Batch 2)".

4. Once you select a particular Batch, for example Batch 1, you will see it is broken down into multiple parts. And each part has multiple documents within that subsection. For example, Batch 1 has 10 subsections. And each subsection has multiple documents within it.

If you are The Strategy Control Room, Advanced Level, member, here is the direct link to this particular update (1,267 + 1,078 = 2,345 SLIDES).

Turnaround & Restructuring Strategy Journal was released EXCLUSIVELY for the Strategy Control Room, Advanced Level members. It's not available anywhere else. Only the Strategy Control Room (Advanced Level) members have access to this powerful new strategy journal.

In the Turnaround & Restructuring Strategy Journal we show you a complete study done by FC of restructuring the national postal office of an important European economy so that you can understand all the key analyses done and in what sequence, and how it should be presented to get the buy-in of the board. It's not theoretical. We show you the actual study. You will also find the blank template pages, which prompt you to complete the key analyses if you were to undertake a similar study.

WHAT IS A TURNAROUND & RESTRUCTURING STRATEGY?

WE DEFINE A TURNAROUND & RESTRUCTURING STRATEGY as the coordinated sequence of activities to cut costs, identify, and reinvest in a profitably growing business while closing, immediately selling, or fixing to sell businesses where it is improbable to affordably compete in an attempt to prevent cashflow problems and insolvency. These actions are usually preceded by years of failed strategy reboots, declining market share across the core businesses, and declining cash reserves with no reasonable path to profitable growth.

These are incredibly stressful studies with the only alternative outcomes being a sale or bankruptcy. Strategy teams have to move quickly to cut all non-essential costs immediately. They must simultaneously understand the market trends and company capabilities, assets and competencies, and which customers to serve in which parts of the value chain.

They must decide which businesses have the best chances of serving these customers profitably and which businesses drain cash. The teams must balance the investment needed to grow businesses supporting the new strategy while determining the cash flows to support that investment via cost cuts, closures, and sales.

Finally, due to the closures and sales, working with unions and local and federal governments becomes a critical requirement for management because labor costs are usually a significant cost bucket. Showing empathy and helping employees released into the market can help burnish the company’s brand.
