The 10 Elements of Leading Successful Change.
Gain Foresight. Insight. Strategic Action.
Maps and compasses are important when traversing unfamiliar terrain and entering into new territory. The same is true in business. Maps are helpful in a world that is filled with so many unknowns, daily market adaptations and disruptive break-through innovations. Having clear strategic direction that is clear, focused and calculated (intentional) while at the same time is nimble, market sensitive and able to pivot in a moments notice (emergent) is crucial to bringing value-adding vision, alignment and mission execution to fulfillment. StrategyAlive.com ™ is a clear and simple 10-step strategic mapping process that generates innovative solutions to move an organization, cause, initiative, product, or even person, forward. It leverages the change process in a way where true transformation takes place. It’s more about thriving than surviving.
Strategic Common Denominators
Following a holistic strategy road map gives us a common framework to communicate, innovate, plan and implement with others in our teams and organization. It helps identify root problems and generate value-adding, future-oriented solutions.

Using the metaphor of a bridge that spans and connects two sides of a river and enables people to cross over, so too StrategyAlive is a strategic “bridge building process” of sorts. It too connects and bridges two worlds or realities so others can cross over successfully. As you will discover, Strategy Alive is both a framework and set of practices that move us from “here” to “there.” This bridge or change platform is held together by strong pillars that are time-tested and herculean.
A Bridge From Here To There
Although when complete this bridge is a fully integrated construct, in the beginning it was first architected, thought by though, piece by piece, process by process, survey by survey, conversation by conversation, piling by piling. As we might suspect, anchoring the strategic pillars into place are the prerequisites to any hope of successful bridge construction and people crossing. Strategy Alive will explore the 10 core “bridge-building pillars,” that when embedded into the change process, will enable leaders to not just manage change, but create an opportunity to generate transformation.
