Your Illinois Business Strategy Consultant Team

Strategic RoadMap™

A plan. Most Illinois organizations say that they have one. It’s in a binder or on someone’s computer. It’s been summarized and put up on the wall. It’s present, but making no difference. It’s ignored.

Which means, of course, that most organizations don’t have a plan. Success will come only by luck.

If stagnancy or failure comes, on the other hand, that is on purpose. As someone has said: “If you fail to prepare you are preparing to fail.”

Saying you have a plan isn’t worth much. Having a plan that is executed, that stakeholders are invested in, and that works to deliver qualitative and quantitative results – that’s indispensable. Having a Strategic RoadMap™ like that is the actual cause of business growth.

That’s exactly what EXOS Advisors delivers as your Illinois business strategy consulting team.

What Sets Us Apart in the World of Business Strategy Consultants in Illinois

How EXOS Advisors’ Business Strategy Consultant Services in Illinois Bring Direction

“Are you practicing a yearly strategic planning process?” We ask this of every company we meet. Most say yes, but when asked to produce a document or recite the main initiatives, the response is crickets! EXOS has a solution that keeps your company’s strategic plan front and center, for all in the company to see and to participate.

We produce a visual Strategic RoadMap™ that is easy to refer to in the midst of leadership activities throughout the year, providing accountability and a constant reminder of the path ahead.

Then we implement all Strategic RoadMap™ initiatives through a process called “OKRs” – Objectives & Key Results. With each completed OKR, we develop an ROI statement that actually tracks dollars back into your company. Our management consulting provides benefits that go way beyond feeling like your team is doing well – you can see how the time and resources you’re spending are making a concrete difference.

This is a process that actually works! Our clients report the Strategic RoadMap™ alone is causing significant, measurable results, both in dollars and effectiveness.

The Benefit of an Outside Perspective

The larger an organization is, the more prone its culture will be to creating an echo chamber. Key players have settled into roles and responsibilities. Strategic perspective is lost amidst the maintaining of relationships, structures, and resources. Within this context, internal voices and ideas for change often die out, having made little difference in moving the company forward.

When EXOS consults, we respect the unique ways in which each company is put together and the unique people that make it work. What we don’t do is reword a prefabricated solution or strategy to fix all your problems. We have a reproducible process that we take the leadership of an organization through – a process which has produced consistently amazing results. But what exactly is entailed for each implementation adapts to our clients and their individual needs.

The first step of our process is to ensure everyone takes the Core Values Index™ (CVI™) assessment in order to become aware of the unique human energies present in the room when the key stakeholders in your company get together. Our perspective allows us to see in fresh ways how those energies interact and the impact that has on the business.

Through the course of about a year (in many cases), we spend time in your organization looking for places where people need coaching and training. We find critical “pressure points” in your organization and address those systematically and strategically to improve flow, function, and energy. The result: big benefits to your bottom line.

Management Consulting Provides Accountability

As all leaders know, accountability makes a big difference. When done well, it’s a real incentive toward improved achieving goals. Even the best goals, laid out in the most clear and achievable way, can be missed without the help of accountability.

The EXOS team adds an outside accountability piece to our Strategic RoadMap™ so it really gets done. We don’t just drop the plan in your lap and leave. Through our time together including monthly Strategic RoadMap™ reviews, we help you establish ways to make sure you’re on the path to growth.

But outside accountability is not all. By establishing a culture which is invested in following your company’s Strategic RoadMap™ and by making the strategic plan continuously visible for all to see, we develop a real sense of accountability even within your company itself. That way our clients aren’t just cleaning themselves up for inspection when their business strategy consultant comes to visit – they are constantly working together toward the same goal: the good of the company.

The Core Values Index™ is the Foundation of our Work as Illinois Business Strategy Consultants
