When would you use the skills of Michelle Mac William as a business strategist?
First, you need to understand what a business strategist is and does to understand how we help your business. A business strategist is called upon when there is an opportunity, or a crisis has occurred. That needs a person to give an immediate, unbiased overview.
The strategy brings together a time frame, the people, and the financial resources to achieve the goal. It is working in the ‘here and the now’.
While a business plan is an objective to be achieved within one year, two years or five years and it is reviewed annually and deals with the future.
As a business strategist, you are in and out, to assist the business owner in achieving the identified goal. Minimising the collateral damage, or dealing with a crisis.
As a business strategist, you ask hard and probing questions, as they need to get an understanding of the situation quickly. This enables the strategist to provide workable strategies that are relevant and fluid. A strategist will tell you ‘how it is’.
A strategist is different from a coach, mentor, or advisor. They are taking a long-term approach and have a range of other services that they offer. The strategist is very much targeted with a sniper-like ethos to achieve the identified target goal while being aware of the surrounding environments.
When deciding on a strategic plan, for an opportunity or crisis situation. The perfect plan is not set in stone and there is an awareness that circumstances can change at any time.
It can be summed up as a management plan. Small increments or moves, which work together in a timed, orderly and financially prudent fashion. Such strategies will create a cohesive movement going in the right direction.
