STRATEGIC DIRECTION: TACTICAL KNOW-HOW
Each of our principals is an expert in a specific business area. Whether you request just one of us or seek a team approach, we maintain ongoing access to all Strategic Directives' experts and their wealth of expertise.
Strategic Directives has found that the most effective way to assist an organization is by:
Providing a Discovery Assessment of need
Developing Strategies for Improved Performance based on your specific objectives in the form of a proposal and letter of intent
Creating a Phased Implementation Plan that includes discreet measurable projects that work within your budget and deadlines in the form of a statement of work
We employ a communications model based on the 5-level Software Engineering Institute/Capability Maturity Model (SEI/CMM) that helps you understand how Strategic Directives can assist your company management team in prioritizing the improvements which need to be made for desired success:
Level 1 - Just beginning to address an area of focus
Level 2 - Have made initial investments in the area of focus but return is clearly unsatisfactory
Level 3 - Area of focus is tactical and looking to make measurable improvements
Level 4 - Company is ready to push strategically forward to best-in-class solutions
Level 5 - Company has the goal of best-in-class and is looking to deny or leap beyond competition
This simple communications model was developed in principal by Carnegie Mellon and is used outside the software industry by the world's greatest companies. As we implement project solutions in a number of areas, Strategic Directives utilizes metrics to help articulate continuous improvement focus for staff and executives.
