Growth Strategy Consulting

We specialize in growth strategy consulting to help organizations rethink their approaches and priorities and ultimately gain confidence that they have a strategy fit for an agile, digital, and purpose-driven future.

Traditional strategic planning approaches are designed to kill off innovative growth strategies. Our proprietary Outthinker Process® , IDEAS framework, and IN-OVATE model – offers the alternative. Rooted in over a decade of research, rigorously tested through more than 300 strategy efforts, our process differs in four important ways:

  • We bring a future-oriented strategic viewpoint
  • We apply “strategic patterns” to expand your options portfolio
  • We create space to explore seemingly crazy ideas
  • We view strategy as a conversation, not just a static document
  • We believe great ideas come from hallways, not just board rooms
  • We build the capacity to continually think strategically, turning innovation into a managed practice, not just an event

We deliver growth strategy consulting not through traditional dedicated consulting teams working through a workplan, but through:

Workshops – Our IDEAS workshop offers a repeatable process for generating disruptive growth ideas and innovation options. Our IN-OVATE workshop unlocks the potential of employee-led innovation. These can be customized and delivered live (in-person or virtual) or self-placed

Certification – We train and certify employees and business leaders to apply the Outthinker Process and toolkit

Keynote Speaking – We customize keynotes to inspire teams and entire companies to think differently about strategy (in-person or virtual)

Communities – We manage peer communities of chief strategy officers and business consultants interested in supporting and inspiring each other to strategically shape the future

Ecosystem – We curate an ecosystem of carefully selected and vetted consulting firms that we consider to be leaders of their domain
