Strategy and planning

Practical, effective support for developing, implementing and managing strategy

Strategic planning is crucial to all businesses regardless of size. Our role is to drill down into your business and help you develop a plan that will help you define and achieve your business objectives, and provide a robust process for managing and reporting on this so that you can understand where success or failure has come from and take corrective action in a timely manner. 

Together with your senior management team, our experienced facilitators will create the environment for discussions in planned interactive workshops with the key members of your team.

Our approach is straightforward.

  1. Review - we look at you as you currently are, not just in your eyes but in the view of your customers.
  2. Vision - define "what good looks like" in the future - what you want to achieve as a business
  3. Plan - ensure all the key components are in place to make your vision happen, assessing priorities, what has to change and what systems need to be put in place
  4. Manage -  set targets, assign accountability, implement a robust management system
  5. Review and Refresh – improvement has to be an ongoing process, which needs to be constantly reviewed. We are here to support you on this continuous journey

We have helped businesses of all shapes and sizes to develop their strategic plans - including family businesses, law firms, manufacturers and numerous not-for-profit/membership-based organisations.

What our clients say

CEO of a Materials Handling Company

 “An area where AHC added huge value was in the facilitation of the workshops on strategy and business planning."

"Like all good facilitators they listened and made sense of the comments that were made." 

"They assisted greatly in adding order to the brainstorming and by so doing helped the team build enormous belief in the exciting targets that were being discussed in the new entrepreneurial approach to brand new markets."

"The answers were provided by the team but without the facilitation the answers would never have been clear!” 

FD of a Trade Association

"When the senior management team of the Association began the process of review of our business strategies, I must confess to being very sceptical about the need for external facilitators."

"My feeling was that, as experienced professionals, my colleagues and I should be capable of managing the exercise for ourselves, and would always know more about our organisation than any outsider.”

“I am pleased (now) that none of my colleagues agreed, because working with AHC has proved to be extremely beneficial. The outcome of the process has been a comprehensive and well-founded business plan which will now form a proper foundation for the future development of the Association.”

FD of a Motorsport Company

"We engaged AHC to work with us on a full strategic review of our operations." 

"Over the course of the project together we developed an excellent three year plan which not only satisfied the financial planning requirements but also left us with clear management objectives and plans to deliver our strategic goals.”

“Whilst providing an invaluable framework to guide our ongoing business development the plan also proved a vital element in our negotiations with Venture Capital partners that resulted in a significant funding injection".
