Our Core Values
How Strategic Offsites Group Is Different
Traditional “Study and Recommend” Strategy Consulting Firms have strong subject-matter expertise and advanced analytical capabilities, BUT their recommendations often lack client ownership/buy-in or cannot be executed.
Strategic Offsites Group drives client ownership of outcomes and buy-in by managing the process, content and conversations needed for effective strategic decision-making. We’re also unbiased – unlike traditional strategy consulting firms we do not deliver recommendations or have a stake in the outcome.
Standalone Facilitators lead executives in insightful conversation using established frameworks and methodologies, BUT they typically do not have rigorous strategy expertise or a tailored approach that fits the client’s objectives. Additionally, their focus tends to be on the meetings themselves, not on what happens before or after.
Strategic Offsites Group partners with clients to develop the right content, follow the right process, and have the right conversations to achieve desired outcomes. Our deep corporate strategy expertise allows us to push executives’ thinking in ways that typical standalone facilitators cannot.
Internal Strategy Teams have strong knowledge of the issues, BUT often do not have adequate resources or the process/facilitation expertise to manage critical strategy conversations. Also, they are rarely in a position to challenge the senior team’s thinking.
Strategic Offsites Group leverages its knowledge of best practices and its experience working with hundreds of companies across industries to drive toward effective solutions. However, we almost always partner with internal strategy teams to design and facilitate an approach that works for their organizations.
