A good strategy is vital but it is only the first part of the equation.
More than simply distributing a 50-page PowerPoint presentation, effective strategy activation requires distinct decision making accountabilities, clear roles and responsibilities, thoughtfully designed implementation and two-way communication plans, and the ability to work freely across organizational boundaries. XPLANE’s approach creates a space for the teams who are responsible for strategy execution to identify and co-create the systems, tools, and experiences they will need to implement successfully. In turn, this accelerates internal alignment, drives employee engagement, and promotes cross-functional collaboration.

“The team we hired to create our strategy isn’t equipped at driving the change throughout the organization.”
“Our internal teams are going to struggle to understand and activate such a complex strategy.”
