STRATEGIC PLANNING & DEPLOYMENT External factors that influence the company Ø Opportunities Ø Threats Internal factors that influence the company Ø Strengths Ø Weaknesses Once all these elements are mapped they form the basis and the departure point for the second step in the process, which is to develop a strategy. The prerequisites of the participants in this second step are; Open mindedness Out of the box thinking Entrepreneurship Mutual respect for one another and ones views The participants in this process should be the CEO and the top management of company as well as Ascend Partners. This Group should not be too large because otherwise real discussion and brainstorming is not possible. In our experience this group should not be larger than 6 people. One prerequisite is that the group of people is intimately aware of the above and has detailed knowledge about all the facets of the business. The development of a strategy is most likely an iterative process to ensure that it is an achievable plan with sufficient ambition. Growth Services Business framework development
