Tell Me More

As business leaders and owners, we often feel like we're always fire-fighting. There are so many things must be taken care of on a day to day basis; dealing with customers, processing orders, talking with suppliers, managing staff, finances, and so on. And while we have a good idea of what needs to be done to spur the next phase of growth, there's rarely enough time to sit and plan let alone put things in place.

All of that is often put into the “someday” pile. We know we need to work on it someday, that day just isn't today. Secondly, customers and product are often our main domain expertise. Many of us often feel doubt or at least a little unsure when it comes to putting together a strategy to scale the business further.

So, wouldn't it be great to have someone who can take on the burden of doing the strategic thinking and planning and work on all the “someday” things? Someone with credible experience in building out strategies that really help businesses scale; but not only that but for them take care of getting the strategy implemented in a project managed way. This is our Outsourced CEO service and is our flagship product.

Our key aim is to act as your hired business partner and work with you to help you realise your vision and long-term goals. We'll work with you to form a workable and solid strategy and then we'll take care of implementation and execution while you focus on the day to day aspects of running your business.

It's a complete “done-for-you” service that takes care of all strategic growth matters. Unlike a typical marketing agency where the business owner generally forms the strategy and instructs an agency to execute, at Stratagem — as a strategic consultancy — we'll form the strategy for you and come up with the best execution plan and avoid any “square in a hole” like situations. Each of our strategies are uniquely tailored to your business. It's what we do best and why we offer packages that focus on the size of your business rather than the individual projects.

We'll lean in on your domain expertise, your product and customer insights, and then use our strategy and operational expertise to form an action plan for execution and implementation. It's a combination of the best of both worlds, rather than a purely one-way relationship. Now, we understand completely that taking care of current business takes up a lot of your time, which is why — once we've worked with you to form a solid strategy — we'll take up as little time of yours as possible and focus on working on things that will deliver results.

All you have to do is tell us your long-term plan and vision, and we'll do what we do best to turn that into a workable strategy and execution plan. We'll focus on the growth strategy, establishing and growing the brand, the customer journey and customer experience, improve operations and use data to drive the insights. Whatever is on your mind and whatever you'd love to share with a business partner, you can share with us.

Frequently asked questions
How can I be sure the strategy will be right for me?
We never develop strategies in a silo. You're the domain expert so we will work with you to first understand your business, and then infuse our strategic knowledge as a result. We always make sure that any strategy that is put together is one that gives you the clarity and confidence that it will work or is at least worth pursuing.
How will you make sure that our budget isn't exceeded?
All of this will be discussed beforehand and upfront and formalised in writing so that you can have the confidence that it won't be exceeded. In many cases, we'll even make sure that your budget requirements are less than what you might have anticipated.
What about liability or risks to my business?
Since we only take responsibility for strategic matters and since the blueprint is developed upfront with your input, the risk is heavily reduced. Our aim is to make your life easier and help you prosper and thus every step of the way, we are mindful of any risks posed to your business as a result of our work or intentions.
I have very unique challenges and constraints as a Founder or Leader, can you still help?
Yes. Our unique approach to developing strategies always ensures that your constraints and challenges are not only considered, but addressed well. We have yet to develop a strategy that has not been able to address constraints and challenges.
How will you fit into the infrastructure already in place at our company?
We will first analyze and evaluate your processes within the infrastructure, then work with managers and employees to find the best way to implement the strategies. Working with companies to find their strengths and implement processes to nurture them in order generate growth is what we're best at. This is a process that involves the entire company in some capacity which is why we work with everyone on a personal level.
