Over the years Artesiaa’s strategy toolbox has grown to a set of 10 tools each aimed at a specific challenge that our CEOs and leaders face.
Each tool in the table below has the following characteristics:
The tool is based on primary research by an Artesiaa associate or a business bestseller selected by the CEOs of Artesiaa’s Center for Strategy: each participant in an Artesiaa event receives a copy of the bestseller
The tool is designed to be used by your company’s leadership team in a face-to-face top management team event
Each tool unfolds in an iterative Concept-Case-Application sequence: participants are required to apply each concept to their company’s context using an Artesiaa workbook; at the end of the event each team has an action plan with accountability for applying “lessons learned” from the tool.
An intense curiosity about the future: Leaders are responsible for their company’s future. Our toolbox on foresight is designed to address the leader’s deep curiosity about the future and prepares a company for the future.
Severe angst about the company’s strategy: Whereas leaders move boldly forward to implement strategy, it is the rare leader that can escape severe angst related to questions like “Did I choose the right strategy?” “Did my speed and commitment match the opportunities the company pursued?” Our foresight toolbox cannot eliminate a leaders’ angst, but it can definitely use systematic analysis to reduce angst of major strategic decisions.
Leverage diversity of the executive team: Most top management teams contain senior executives with diverse backgrounds. Each tool in the foresight tool box is designed to be used by the senior team and supports senior managers as they use their diverse backgrounds to enrich and inform the company’s strategy.
