The essence of strategy is choosing what not to do.
You don’t feel confident about your long-term strategy. You have a clear list of priorities, but don’t have a plan to drive long-term, sustainable growth. The management team isn’t aligned and the business is having difficulty getting to the goal line on critical initiatives.
Build a Blueprint for Growth
Catalyst Strategies designs plans that help companies gain long term competitive advantage. We focus on plans that create value, linking strategy and execution. We help clients assess market opportunities, competitively position the company, design new business models, define objectives, identify priority initiatives, and align cross-functional teams. We recommend ways to take advantage of emerging trends, new technologies, and the changing competitive landscape. We help executive teams decide where to focus, how to allocate resources, and how to measure success.
A goal without a plan is just a wish.

Proven Strategic Planning Approach
Catalyst Strategies infuses fact-based analysis, sound business experience and creative thinking to develop, refine, and drive strategies that result in sustainable business growth. We accomplish this by:
- Defining long-term strategies to address the opportunities while limiting risks
- Objectively screening potential strategies or business opportunities, including review of benefits, costs and likely trade-offs
- Supporting the executive team in making decisions about which opportunities to pursue
- Refining or developing an overarching divisional or corporate strategy statement
- Outlining goals, priorities, specific initiatives, and resources required to successfully address key opportunities
- Developing the business case to substantiate strategic investments
- Building a road map to reach business goals
- Building consensus within the management team, to ensure long-term, strategic support and successful implementation of the plan
We were fortunate to have Catalyst as a strategy partner at a pivotal time for our group. We still have a lot of execution to do, but we have a buttoned-up strategy that gives us clear direction and focus. Catalyst turned a difficult and complex problem into a simple strategy, without it being simplistic. I’d recommend the Catalyst team to anyone who needs to convert a daunting strategic challenge into a big win.
