Strategic Planning

Whether you have a plan or not, you have decided to hire a professional to lead you through a planning process. Pivot has a proven planning process that will provide you with the strategic results you are looking for.


Strategy Alignment, Monitoring and Review

You have a plan. Now you need help integrating the plan into your organization’s culture and conduct. We will review your plan and how the people in your organization are using it. We’ll work with you to streamline the process and make it part of the way you do business.

You are busy with the day-to-day operations of your business. How do you integrate the strategic initiatives into your business? We’ll help you manage the implementation of your strategy. We’ll develop the plan, work with the right people and help you get it done.


Change Management

While most will agree that “change is constant,” most people struggle with change at both the professional and personal levels. At Pivot, we follow the ADKAR model, a commonly used change management approach.

For change to be accepted the following approach to change management should be incorporated into the process.

  • Awareness – of the need for change
  • Desire – to support and participate in the change
  • Knowledge – of how to change
  • Ability – to implement the change
  • Reinforcement - to sustain the change

Our consultants can help you implement change strategies and create a culture where change is easy on everyone because our process is inclusive, answers the all-important “well what about me and my function” issues and eliminates the feeling of “being left behind.”


Environmental Scan

We will lead you through an objective review of your business environment, your industry and your place in it. The analysis can be as broad or as deep as you require (or are willing to pay for). We’ll guide you through a comprehensive approach, help you conduct an objective review of your existing data, and help you evaluate which “missing data pieces” will offer you the best short or long term return on your environmental scan investment.


PESTLE

A PESTLE* analysis is a framework used to analyze and monitor the factors that have an impact on your organization at the macro level. The results are used to identify organizational threats and weaknesses that are summarized and evaluated in a SWOT and SoWOT™ analysis.

*Political, Economic, Social, Technology, Legal, Environment


Internal Review

Our consultants can lead you and your team through a facilitated exercise to build the SWOT and SoWOTTM analysis. The results of this exercise help you identify your organizational strengths and weaknesses.


SWOT and SoWOT™

The SoWOT™ analysis is a trademarked process developed by Pivot Performance. The process makes it easier for your team to match available [or acquirable] resources and capabilities to the competitive environment in which you operate. It is instrumental in strategy development as well as the selection and ranking of your tactical options.

SWOT
Internal factors in the organization are classified as strengths (S) or weaknesses (W). Those external to the organization are classified as opportunities (O) or threats (T).

SoWOT™
The SoWOTTM is the systematic review of the SWOT results where you align strengths and weaknesses with opportunities and threats to maximize the impact of your actions.
