[Strategic Planning] is the continuous process of making present risk-taking decisions systematically with the greatest knowledge of their futurity; organizing systematically the efforts needed to carry out these decisions; and measuring the results of these decisions against the expectations through organized, systematic feedback… The end result of successful strategic planning must be the capacity to take a greater risk, for this is the only way to improve entrepreneurial performance.

-Peter Drucker*

Strategic Planning

There is simply no substitute for rigorous analytical thinking to develop a strong, evidence-based case for change. Blue Monarch Management develops strategic plans to drive a commitment of resources today that will create capacity for a client organization in the future.
  1. Our planning approach consistently begins with exhaustive exploration of an organization's desired objectives.

  2. We rationalize activities that should no longer be done due to low performance or productivity.

  3. We identify what the business should be in the future and identify when, in the future, each need will materialize.

  4. We then develop and discard options until we have identified the right priorities.
Our strategic plans can span the enterprise or be focused on specific business units. They can also address many functions together or specific functions of an organization such as: operations; marketing and sales; human resources and talent management; finance; and technology.

Your actionable strategic plans are rooted in future needs mapped through time to today's decisions

Blue Monarch Management Service Principles

We develop strategic plans that identify when resources must be committed, with the work begun to achieve the results for when they are needed. The fast and disruptive competitive business landscape means that strategy must be responsive to internal changes in operations and external changes in the market, particularly from competitive threats, regulation, and technology. And it MUST be deliberate.
