Strategy Development

The Migrators Strategy Development Practice focusses on understanding business needs, developing and assessing options and preparing, visions, roadmaps and plans.

Business strategy is concerned with identifying the future direction of the organisation. A realistic and engaging vision should be provided to stakeholders. The strategy should also provide a number of goals and objectives for the organisation, as well as indicating how they should be achieved.

Inevitably, strategy involves decision making. Decision making is easier if the potential options are identified and assessed early on. These options may relate to the strategic goals, their benefits, or the ways in which the goals can be achieved. This approach allows the most appropriate options to be selected, allowing the decision making to be clearer and easier.

Once the strategy has been decided, it must be made available to stakeholders. This should be promoted, and communicated by a variety of means, including briefings, documents and other communications methods. For ambitious, or long term strategies, the vision must be managed appropriately. This will ensure the vision is understood, as well as highlighting the interim goals, tasks and objectives required to achieve the vision.
