A Powerful Strategy Toolkit & Visual Facilitation for a Shared Vision
To facilitate the strategy process and set up a clear direction of where they wanted to go and how they would get there, Christian Rangen introduced a portfolio of strategy tools to the management team, as well as engaged Holger Nils Pohl as a visual facilitator.
Together, the visual facilitation and strategy tools helped dramatically speed up processes that normally would have taken weeks and months. They simplified the often over-complicated process of strategy, and made it easy to focus on the task at hand.
The senior management team landed on a strategic direction after only two meetings.
“I think the strategy tools were essential to the whole process. I’m not sure we would have had such a clear direction from the start as we did without using the tools,” said the CEO.
“The tools, combined with the visuals by Holger, showed me how powerful it was to be able to present a strategy, a purpose, and a vision in a very simple, visual way that people can remember, agree upon and understand — because you’ll then see the power of the employees united in the same vision and direction, driving that strategy together with you at the top,” said the CFO.
“This is much more efficient compared to the usual comprehensive strategy or report, as people read it and understand very different things, and run in very different directions afterwards.”
