 How it works

Our bespoke two-day Setting Direction workshop brings you and the top team together to evaluate the market through three key lenses:

The White space develops an entrepreneurial view of the macro situation in your company’s chosen markets by understanding the current environment (geo-political, socio-economic etc.) in which we are operating then identifying key facts, observations and opportunities for growth.

The Red space strengthens competitive intelligence to develop an understanding of regional & local competitors in your market space to determine what they are doing now and their likely future courses of action around where to play and how to win.

The Blue space returns the focus to agree and commit to your company’s strategic intent through a transformational Vision and strategic attack pillars that will drive growth, defining the core measures of success aligned to the winning aspiration. From there we build the 1st year CEO’s operational plan and Must Win Battles to drive momentum for the first step to achieving the new Plan.
