DESIGNING STRATEGY FOR COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE

“I attended Dr Kenny’s masterclass. I found it extremely insightful and contemporary in content and delivery. Dr Kenny is very knowledgeable and his sharing of experiences was especially useful as it allowed me to benchmark my understanding against the market.

I would highly recommend Dr Kenny and his course!”.

Mark Wiggins – CEO, Hall Payne Lawyers

Business Outcomes

What’s the bottom line for your organization?

Competitive advantage, or doing better than the alternative, must be achieved at every interface with your key stakeholders – customers, yes, but employees, suppliers and so on, too.

There are two ways to achieve this. One is by better positioning on strategic factors. The other is by inventing a new business model.

Answers to these questions will be found in this workshop:

  • Do you know the keys to your competitive advantage?
  • How can you research strategic factors?
  • Has your organisation or business unit developed clear positions on where it stands?
  • Where might you start in designing a new business model?

IDENTIFYING KEY STAKEHOLDERS

“Our leadership team found Dr Kenny’s masterclasses to be eye opening.

He has a way of making complex issues simple and easy to understand.”

Alan Saunders – Director Principal, Impact Australia

Business Outcomes

What’s the bottom line for your organization?

““Stakeholders” are now front and centre in any modern strategic discussion or planning. But how do you identify them? Which ones are “key”? These are the central questions in this workshop.

The questions addressed in this workshop include:

  • Does your team genuinely understand what’s going on in your industry?
  • How can you make your strategic analysis more penetrating?
  • Can you identify your “key” stakeholders?
  • Can you describe your target customer clearly?

POSITIONING A BUSINESS FOR SUCCESS

“Our team completed the masterclass with Graham. He provides great practical advice and lots of case studies to help bring the information to life. I highly recommend this masterclass to anyone in business.

Even if you believe you have a clear strategy and the right metrics…there are priceless gems in this course.”

Paula Hann – Managing Director at Metagenics ANZ

Business Outcomes

What’s the bottom line for your organization?

Business is operating in a volatile world brought on not only by the pandemic but also by changes in management thinking. This includes a shift to “stakeholders” in management language, e.g., “stakeholder capitalism”. However, most management teams lack a consistent framework to address these changes. The questions addressed in this workshop include:

  • Can you, on the fingers of one hand, tell someone the ingredients of success in your industry?
  • Have you been developing strategy looking inside-out?
  • Are you able to look at your business outside-in?
  • Is your organisation a Champion or a Plodder?

EXECUTING STRATEGY

“Aside from his immense experience in the setting of strategic direction for our company, it was his ability to simplify what was a hugely daunting task and one that we had delayed for too long.

His genuine interest in getting to the root cause of our problems is appreciated and I have no hesitations in recommending him to other companies who are yet to really get their strategy right.“.

Ashley Bacon – CEO, Kalyx Australia

Business Outcomes

What’s the bottom line for your organization?

It would seem obvious to say that executing your strategy is essential. But research shows that this is precisely where things come unstuck.

The questions addressed in this workshop include:

  • Have you tried to do too much in the past?
  • Have you been designing real actions and an action plan?
  • Have you lacked someone in charge of monitoring progress?
  • Have you tried to track progress through normal meetings?

SETTING EFFECTIVE OBJECTIVES

“I attended Graham’s online Strategy course. It was one of the most practical and insightful approaches to strategy I have seen. The opportunity to meet other like-minded business leaders as part of it was really valuable.

Graham talks to real-life business strategy examples he has worked on, not theory.

I would highly recommend “.

Andrew Bird – Director, Foundstone Advisory

Business Outcomes

What’s the bottom line for your organization?

Objectives are essential in shaping strategy and measuring success. Yet most management teams make a complete mess of writing clear and measurable objectives. The list becomes a hotchpotch of items developed via brainstorming or similar method. This workshop shows you the right way to go about the task. The questions addressed include:

  • Are you precise in what you want your key stakeholders to do?
  • Are you aware of the three ways to measure business results?
  • What’s the role of planning parameters in the objective-setting process?
  • Where do mission, vision and purpose statements fit in?
