The Strategic Workshops
More information on the workshop

Many of our clients have asked us to help them better manage the knowledge and information contained in our strategic reports. To help them embed that knowledge and information in the organisation.

For this purpose, we have developed a framework, which we call The Strategic Workshop. This framework is based on our reports, and the workshops are customized to fit individual clients individual strategic challenges.

The aim of the workshops is to help clients convert new knowledge into action. The workshops are a pass for a better strategic understanding of the current and future market. To help clients sell more products in less time at reduced cost.

How are the workshops organised?
The workshops combine analysis and practice in order to provide a complete picture of how technology, revenue models and distribution will affect your future business. The workshops convert technical lingo into plain language and help participants equip themselves for future challenges.

Who should participate?
The workshops are for people who work, or expect to work with strategic issues, product development or sales and marketing - regardless of whether the perspective is a strategic or creative one. Common for them all is their need to better understand future possibilities, both in relation to matching products with clients' needs and marketing.

Why invest in a workshop?
It is a question of knowledge management. As mentioned above, many of our clients ask us to help them embed the knowledge and information held in the reports into their organisation. That is what the workshops do, and that is why you too should consider investing in one.

How to go about it
Workshops are often purchased combined with one of our strategic reports, however workshops can also be purchased independently of a report. When the client have had time do digest the content of the report and would like to have a workshop, we ask them to inform us about the following:
- Who will participate and what are their functions in the organisation ?
- What subjects, problems and questions will need to be addressed during the workshop?
- What are your expectations?

The same kind of preparation, will of course take place, when we prepare a workshop for customers who do not wish to combine the workshop with one of our reports.

This procedure serves to ensure, that our customer to a considerable extent, in cooperation with us, can create a tailor made agenda for the workshop.
