Corporate Strategy and Strategic Planning
Corporate strategic planning is the process of devising a plan of offensive and defensive actions intended to maintain and build competitive advantage over the competition. For strategy to be successfully implemented, it must be linked and aligned to all aspects of operations through a method that addresses risks, manages financial constraints and adheres to an ever increasingly complex maze of legal and regulatory requirements. Regardless of your organization’s size, industry or business model - strategic planning and well-executed implementation play critical roles in establishing and maintaining long-term growth and profitability.

Plan4 transforms strategic planning into a high value process.
Our planning approach, known as “Plan4” differs from stale traditional strategic planning in many ways, yet this innovative approach is built upon the foundation of many thought leaders in the field of strategy and operations planning. Plan4 is highly effective in defining corporate strategy, aligning operational planning tactics and managing execution to plan goals. This is accomplished through a continuous and evergreen process that shepherds and empowers executive leadership through a holistic, flexible and adaptable process that works within your own unique culture. The Plan4 framework addresses all aspects of planning, including some normally overlooked, such as communication and change management.
Whether your organization is looking to improve performance, getting involved with a merger or acquisition, launching a new line of business or seeking to better attenuate operational planning with corporate strategy - Method Frameworks has the experience and the approach to make you successful.
We make information useful and usable.
Our process embraces the idea that external consultants (strategic planning “experts”) do not have all of the right answers. Rather, those ideas, innovations, insights, and overall corporate direction come from those who work within the business and intimately understand the nuances of the industry.
Yet, the challenge that most organizations have is leveraging the information they already have. The Plan4 process allows us to extract the right information and makes it useful and usable to develop strategy and tactics to achieve growth and higher profitability for our clients.
What does this mean to you? It all boils down to results.
Our approach leads to clearer vision, better strategy, tighter accountability and crisper execution. The Plan4 process ultimately enables organizations to quickly respond to market opportunities and changes. Risks are mitigated through scenario planning, strategy testing and well-crafted execution tactics - while threats are understood and planned for.
