“Strategy” has a long history as a ‘Big Company’ process that takes weeks and produces reports that sit on shelves and gather dust. Our approach for middle market strategy is very different. The middle market does not have weeks to devote to strategy, and they need plans that are authored by their leaders. At FortéOne, we’re talking about creating clear, actionable plans that people—your people—can rally around, execute, measure, and ultimately embrace.
Simply put, OnePath transforms your company from being reactive—to the market, the competition, “hot” internal issues—to being proactive and prepared. Our team of C-suite veterans doesn’t just understand the importance of strategy, they have a firm grasp on what it takes to ferret out key insights, narrow priorities, and achieve company-wide alignment. All the things required to put you on track for greater success.
In relatively short order (think weeks instead of the typical consulting firm’s months) OnePath will help reposition your company so it can once again create maximum value. The resulting strategy will be a sustainable path designed for continuous growth. And, not only will your employees understand the strategy, they’ll participate in developing this plan and they will embrace it.
Middle market business owners often struggle to adapt when they realize major changes are needed for their company. Common issues include profit declines, stalled growth, a need to prepare the business for sale, new competitors, or when initiatives fail because business complexity is challenging the capabilities of their current leadership team. If you are experiencing one of the following situations our clients have faced in recent years, OnePath might be for you.
“Forte’s guidance on change management, project management, technology, data, operations, and leading people – all were essential in mitigating that risk. The FortéOne team balanced all that change by understanding the importance of preserving the culture that makes our organization special.”
