StratPro utilises the Business Builder’s Blueprint™ the industry-leading business management platform.

The problem with most strategic planning projects is that a great plan is created but it is not properly implemented. The resulting plans are static, yet real business is dynamic. At TAB, we view a strategic plan as a dynamic effort. While a lot of the original plan remains in place, businesses operate in a dynamic environment and the plans need to reflect the latest information.

An additional challenge in other strategic planning efforts is that the plans and supporting information are scattered throughout Word documents and spreadsheets. The most important information to run a business is disorganised and fragmented.

StratPro was designed to use the Business Builder’s Blueprint (Blueprint) for these reasons. The Blueprint is both a business planning and execution platform. It realises that the best plans are dynamic, and it makes it easy to update. It allows key employees direct access to the parts of the plan and the KPIs they are responsible for achieving. It provides built-in accountability. The strategic plan and supporting information are in a single, secure, integrated, online system.

Before and after a StratPro Implementation

The following compares what a typical business is like before and after a StratPro implementation. Most organisations will not match all of the statements in the before column. However, most organisations, even if successful, are likely facing a number of the criteria in the before column. Even if an organisation is successful, operating more along the lines of the after column is much more desirable. Moving from the before column to the after column involves not only implementing StratPro but also a leadership team dedicated to making the changes necessary to achieve the after picture.

Effort is primarily spent on the “whirlwind”: urgent and not necessarily important activities StratPro’s “Business MRI” identifies key gaps and opportunities. As a result, effort is focused on more strategic activities.
Everyone is making best efforts but the organisation is working toward individual and group objectives. The organisation has a clear vision that all team members understand, buy into and are working daily to achieve.
The culture of the business has developed organically. Often, the owner/leader is unhappy with the culture of their business. The organisation has a clear vision that all team members understand, buy into and are working daily to achieve.
Responsibilities of key staff are ill-defined. Redundancy of roles exist. Owner/Leader often works too hard and has not delegated most responsibilities to staff. A well-defined accountability chart has been created. Responsibilities of all key staff are clear. Owner/Leader has delegated key tasks. The right staff are in the right seats.
The company’s value proposition is ill-defined. They can’t clearly explain how they are different and better than competitors. Value to the customer is clear. Well-defined points of differentiation are specified. The Unique Value Proposition is written and compelling.
Decision-making process is vague. Key decisions may be undermined. Unresolved conflict exists between staff. Professional communication. Improved decision-making process is employed. Conflict resolution tools in place. Consensus building is established.
Business is run tactically rather than strategically. The most important priorities are unclear. No strategic direction established. Critical success factors defined. SMART Goals and well-defined Strategies established and fully accountable action plans developed.
Decisions are not made from tracking operating metrics. Annual financial budgets are not used. The right leading & lagging indicators are defined. Decisions are made based on their impact to achieve KPI’s.
Meetings are poorly run and usually viewed cynically by the staff. Poor accountability in the organisation. Leadership looks forward to professionally-facilitated meetings that help the business move forward, resolve issues and achieve accountability.
