Elephants Child provide clients with the insight and advice to create and develop a strategic intent to deliver excellent results. Can your employees articulate your strategic intent and can they implement it? Does your strategic intent inform and guide your business?
“Elephants Child enabled us to translate a list of strategic options into a defined strategic intent.
They then develop a Three Year Business Plan and annual operating plan giving priority, structure and direction.
As a result of this work we have the full support of our Chairman and board, aligned a complex and large group of shareholders and importantly our team who are now in the second quarter of implementation and are enjoying great success.”
