WHAT VALUE DO WE CREATE?
We ensure skill building is an integral part of the development of expedition maps. We help to develop the capacity of individuals, teams, and organizations as part of expedition mapping expected outcomes. As a result, our clients see improvements in annual and quarterly action planning; smarter resourcing and budgeting; and increased capacities for growth and development. They are better able to stay agile and respond to changing conditions; get people on board and keep them focused; and track success and adapt to changing environmental conditions.
WHO NEEDS THIS SERVICE?
Strategy fails most often at the handoff from crafting to implementing. We help leaders prepare their organizations to successfully implement their plans using expedition mapping. Smart leaders who know that change is hard turn to Sierra Learning Solutions for help getting everyone in the organization engaged and focused. Expedition mapping is a tool to help organizations take charge of their own futures.
WHAT DO WE DO?
Sierra Learning Solutions uses expedition mapping to help clients achieve difficult goals and reach what may seem like unreachable destinations. This powerful new method for strategic implementation blends storytelling, action planning, resource analysis, and adaptive, ongoing environmental scanning. Using a mix of face-to-face and online collaborative activities, we help stakeholders discover what they need to do in order to make a successful journey to the future.
Expeditionary Strategy CraftingApplying design thinking to strategy crafting brings new tools to a critical organizational need and requires four stages in the design process. These distinct but highly interdependent stages provide a sound foundation for a large variety of possible planning tools and experiences. Often lasting three to twelve months or more, what results is a clear roadmap for implementation and a fully engaged organization.
Problem-Based DesignWhen a clear, or even hazy, problem is the center of the task at hand, we employ our six-stage innovation approach that includes collaborative design; discovery and assessment; divergent thinking and ideation; convergent planning, selecting; prototyping; and implementation, tracking, and adjusting course.
Traditional Strategic PlanningWe customize solutions to meet each client’s needs by drawing on proven approaches from long-range scenario planning, to action planning, to designing competitive advantage.
