Strategy

Hutcheson Associates specializes in two primary strategy services. We are certified practitioners of Strategic Doing, an agile, iterative, and collaborative approach to strategy. We can also conduct research to help you make better-informed strategic decisions.    

Strategic Doing

Strategic DoingNot only is Scott a co-author of Strategic Doing: Ten Skills for Agile Leadership, he and his associates are also Certified Strategic Doing Workshop Leaders. This means they can work with you to design a strategy process that will result in you making near-immediate progress on your organization or community’s strategic outcomes. Whether you have a small team with one strategic focus area, a large enterprise moving forward on a number of fronts, or a local or regional economy trying to align multiple organizations and agendas toward a shared future, Hutcheson Associates can design and guide a Strategic Doing engagement that will deliver results.

Hutcheson Associates’ Strategic Doing services include both pilots and large-scale transformation initiatives. In a pilot, you’ll work with one of our Certified Strategic Doing Practitioners, typically, on a single strategic issue over the course of three to four months. In a large-scale transformation initiative, you can address multiple strategic focus areas. An initiative can last anywhere from three months to a year. You will likely work with a team of our Certified Strategic Doing Practitioners on a large-scale initiative. You can learn more about both pilots and transformation initiatives by clicking below.

AEM-Cube: Connecting People to Growth, Innovation and Strategic Transformation

Strategic DiversityEach of us has a specific cognitive repertoire that determines how we contribute to growth, innovation, and strategic transformation. Each team, group, and organization is more or less cognitively diverse. Greater levels of cognitive diversity become especially important when these teams, groups, and organizations are undergoing some sort of strategic transformation. We call this Strategic Diversity. A Strategic Diversity Assessment powered by AEM-Cube can help groups, teams, and organizations analyze their level of strategic diversity, learn to capitalize on their strategic strengths and mitigate their strategic vulnerabilities. You can learn more about Strategic Diversity Analytics here.

Growth CurveEvery organization, every community, and every regional economy is at a specific place on their current “growth curve.” Knowing where you are gives you insights about what is likely to come next and helps inform strategic decisions about what to keep doing, what to stop doing, and when to “jump” to the next growth curve. You can learn more about Our Growth Curve here.
