THE HOW OF ACHIEVING
WHAT IS STRATEGY?
According to London Business School experts in Business Strategy, there is no internationally agreed upon definition. This mirrors a problem we see in the business world on a weekly basis, where strategy is often confused with a whole manner of things including basic planning and “nice to have initiatives” being conducted whilst key strategic initiatives are missed or behind schedule. This can often lead to businesses losing direction and failing to achieve their ambitions. From a High Performance Enterprise perspective, LMAC define Strategy as:
“The creation of a Unique Business Model that harnesses your competitive advantage, allowing you to fulfil your Purpose”
High Performance Organisations out perform their competitors and thrive. Rather than relying upon good luck, these organisations think and behave strategically in order to achieve clear objectives in line with their Core Purpose. They are somehow able to manage “business as usual” and still find time to work on strategic initiatives that will grow their business.
Our studies show that New Zealand businesses are not alone in struggling to develop strategies (and then follow them) to ensure their trajectory is in line with their Purpose.
That’s where we can help.
Whether you’re a large or small organisation, our Strategy Model will help you harness your organisation and its competitive advantages towards growth and success.
BUSINESS WIDE STRATEGY ENGAGEMENT
Want to know how?
LMAC are helping organisations in multiple industry sectors across New Zealand turn their Purpose into reality.
Our unique strategy model has been developed by combining decades of experience in blue chip companies, and academic learning at the London Business School.
“Through this interactive strategy build process we have been able to align nationally. This has been one of the most successful approaches to enable national roll out, standardisation and regional accountability. LMAC’s approach has been excellent.
It has resulted in a cohesive plan that is easy to review and based upon delivering the actions to achieve our strategic plans”

LMAC worked very closely with us to understand the key business objectives from this project from the very beginning. It was important that we were aligned on what we needed to deliver and this initial work has helped with making key decisions along the way.”
