Post 3 of the ‘Strategy in uncertainty’ series

Strategies on paper aren’t going to change the world.  Those that organisations live and breathe stand a chance.  Setting a dynamic direction, which engages and informs at all levels of the organisation, can help to navigate change.  Participatory processes in the development of a strategy are essential to build the necessary ownership and engagement in an agile strategy for its ultimate delivery.  

The three elements of the Ethicore Participatory Process:  listen, engage and ownership, are critical to strategic planning that lives within an organisation.  A mix of tools are used at each stage to ensure a strategy is built on deep insight, engages the organisation in possible directions and is owned and used by teams.  Our next blog will explore some of the tools in more detail.
