Strategy is a word that gets tossed around a lot, but what does it really mean?

At its core, strategy is about thinking through your business and the context in which you’re operating, and coming up with a plan to increase your chances of success. It’s about being proactive instead of reactive.

Playing to Win

Build a Business Strategy That Works

The Playing to Win strategic framework is a set of five choices that help a company succeed in the marketplace. These choices include having a winning aspiration, knowing where to play, knowing how to win, developing core capabilities, and fine-tuning your management systems. Each choice is crucial for an organization to gain an edge over their competitors.

Make Choices – The Key to Strategy

The Playing to Win strategy framework should help you to define a very differentiated and defensible strategy. It should guide you to arrive at a holistic strategy and help you achieve sustainable competitive advantage.

Are you Just Playing—or Playing to win?

Strategies are not complex, but they are hard. In order to create strategies that align with organizational goals, it is necessary to make specific choices about how a company will change in the future.

Companies that struggle with strategy are often fearful of decisions that could lead to a major shift in their future. In contrast, a good strategy can be built on the right choices that set an organization on the right path for a long time.

The key questions you need to answer are

• What is our winning aspiration?
• Where will we play?
• How will we win?
• What capabilities must we have in place to win?
• What management systems are required?

Our programs are designed specifically for your business and what makes it unique so that you can start getting results from day one.

Lean Canvas Workshop

Communicate Your Idea Clearly and Concisely

Lean Canvas is a 1-page business plan template created by Ash Maurya that helps you deconstruct your idea into its key assumptions.

It is adapted from Alex Osterwalder’s business model canvas and optimized for early-stage product development. It replaces elaborate business plans with a single page business model.

Business plans take too long to write, are seldom updated, and almost never read by others but documenting your plan is key.

The Lean Canvas is an excellent tool to support your understanding of your business model in a straightforward, structured way. This will lead to insights about the clients you serve, what value propositions are offered through what channels, and how your company delivers value.

This can also be applied against a competitor to analyse their business models.
