As we try to create a new strategy for our organization, the greatest challenge isn’t business intelligence from the outside, but gathering the best thinking from our own people and creating alignment.
Vision, Strategy and Priorities
Lumiere provides a powerful process, conceived in man’s quest for the moon, to enable the leadership of companies and departments to forge a bold new vision of where they want to be at a set point in the future and to devise the roadmap to achieving it. Our facilitation skills draw leaders together, often in an unprecedented way, to share their best insights and information, creating both a visionary view of the future and a very practical path for getting there.
This process is also very effective when the corporate strategy is already established, and the challenge is to engage various levels of the organization to strive to achieve it.
The group is guided through a series of exercises and discussions which will maximize the group’s creative thinking and then select the best ideas generated. They will create:
- A concrete, breakthrough vision of where they could be in a few years
- A prioritized map of initiatives for achieving the vision
- An action plan for fulfilling each of those priorities and the overall vision
Payoff / Benefits
The company or department will conclude the session with a clear plan for achieving a genuine breakthrough in their areas of endeavor. They will enjoy the most remarkable confidence and commitment to a shared vision, based on the imagination and best insights of the leadership team. Many executives have exclaimed that the business outcomes that they achieved as a result of this process were beyond anything they could have imagined.
I worked with Lumiere Consulting for a period of about 3 years with the specific goal of Vision creation and implementation with the senior/mid-management team of the business. The results were a cohesive, believable, achievable vision that was bought into by the whole team–with regular follow-up sessions that forced action. I have no doubt that the success of the business was enhanced by the Vision process they created and implemented for us.Ruth Newton Jones, Former MD of Christian Dior Perfumes and Cosmetics, UK and Ireland
The way Lumiere facilitated the session was powerful — and helped us to improve the growth appetite in our team and develop ownership towards these goals, which we jointly defined for ourselves.Partner, Financial Services, Global Consulting Firm
I loved that we got to a Vision statement so quickly and were in strong agreement about it. And I loved that we ended up with Action Plans that we can start working on Monday morning.Managing Director, Luxury Fragrance Business
