What is good strategy?

There is no one-size-fits-all approach to strategy.
Every organisation is unique and as such requires tailored solutions to the specific challenges it faces, and the problems it is designed to solve.

A range of factors impact an organization’s ability to achieve its vision.

Factors such as environmental and social drivers, operating context, business processes and leadership maturity all combine to form an organisation’s ‘DNA’ and define its unique pathway to success.

The kernel to good strategy is working together to identify and diagnose these factors, design an approach that works for you and implement an action plan with you to achieve your vision.

Good Strategy

We enable you to create good strategy in 3 steps:

Diagnosis – Understand the challenge and problem you are solving: “Why is our company here? What is our reason for existence? What is our core business?” Providence supports you to diagnose the nature of the challenge being faced or problem being solved by applying design led thinking.

Guiding policy – We work with you to create a decision framework or set of guiding policies that enable you to deal with the challenges you face and allocate your limited resources (time, material, personnel) to address these problems.

Coherent action – We help you to define coherent and measurable actions that are designed to drive your organisation forwards and address these challenges and achieve success.

  • The strategy journey requires leaders who can navigate at least four kinds of problems to resolution:Commissioning and obtaining strategic business advice.
  • Designing good governance and assurance models.
  • Enabling better business collaboration.
  • Benchmarking and sensemaking.
