Developing bespoke solutions
A good strategy gives you the ‘Where’ you are going (your North Star), the ‘Why’ (business case and unique societal purpose), ‘What’ activities will get you there, and ‘How’ you will manage the journey.
We have successfully worked with many organisations to develop their sustainability strategies, which have then become their primary corporate strategy and guided them into a new and sustainable future.
Our strategy development process can be flexed depending on what you need. It is a basic 4-step approach grounded in change management and strategy development theory. We can tailor which steps you need for your bespoke programme:
Identify your current state
Articulate and agree your desired state
Develop your strategy framework
Map the change journey to get from where you are now to where you need to be
Embedded within the steps are a materiality assessment, benchmarking, mega trends analysis, stakeholder engagement, and developing your strategy temple.
Develop a full sustainability strategy
Our 4-stage strategy framework takes you through Current state and Desired state identification, design of the strategy framework, and development of your bespoke implementation plan.
Refresh your strategy
Review your current strategy by benchmarking your performance with peers and industry standards, analysing progress to your commitments, updating your stakeholders wants and needs, and suggesting opportunities to refresh.
Review your current performance
Review your outcomes and progress towards targets with a Performance SWOT analysis, identifying risks & opportunities, and if needed run a related Culture review to identify barriers.
Develop an implementation roadmap
Sometimes a client will have a strategy but needs support in planning how to enact it. We can help you develop your implementation roadmap using robust programme management techniques.
A good sustainability strategy, done right…
... is a systemic change programme
Includes the right people and builds in accountability
Starts with what is good, but understands what change is needed and how your organisation embraces change
Is specific, practical, and rigorous
Sustainability Strategy in Action
Developing a sustainability strategy
We have helped many clients develop their bespoke sustainability strategies. We start by identifying the good you do, your context, what is needed and expected of you, and what your material issues are. We then help you articulate your ambition and vision, design your strategy framework, and develop your key targets and programmes.
