The CEO and Head of Strategy of this large and diversified Australian ASX listed business were concerned to ensure the leaders of its very varied divisions were aligned on key common issues of strategy and collaboration across divisions. They also wanted to explore their sense of purpose.
At a corporate strategy offsite, Blue Ocean Strategy Australia provided several accredited BOS facilitators working as a team, with each allocated to a separate division.
Portfolio maps were created for each division, highlighting the key areas of concern and drivers of expected growth.
The maps were shared and compared, particularly with a whole-of-business portfolio map developed by the CEO and his immediate team.
Strategic dialogues continued post the offsite around key areas of Customer Value, Business Models, People and Technology, further exploring, sharing and aligning views and identifying areas that required further and continued investigation.
