About Lindsay Foresight & Stratagem
WE SPECIALIZE IN INSIGHT, FORESIGHT, TRAINING AND STRATEGIC PLAYBOOKS FOR COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE.
Any past advantage companies and brands have enjoyed is quickly dissipating given the pace of change. In fact, most executives are unaware of emerging marketplace dynamics –and new marketing dynamics---changing their competitive set; what it takes to now position and market efficiently, strategize effectively. The need for our expertise is evident every where you look. And that just might include a mirror.
WE DON’T CAST STRATEGIES FOR COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE. WE TEACH EXECUTIVES HOW TO DO IT AND DO IT WELL.
We don’t give you a fish, our presentations, workshops and counsel teach you how to fish. We teach others on your team to fish. We elevate any organization or team to feed their ambitions and success for years to come. This makes even a short term engagement with us a wise investment, providing return for years to come.
IT’S NOT WISE TO TACKLE COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE WITHOUT OUTSIDER PERSPECTIVE.
Why? Because when you’re in the picture, you can’t see the frame in which you’re operating. You can’t see how you’re viewed by others. Objectively, you can’t see other pictures vying for attention. Chances are we’ll help you see things you’ve not yet seen.
THE FOCUS OF OUR FORESIGHT, ANALYSIS AND ADVICE? REALITIES EVERY EXECUTIVE MUST ACCOUNT FOR WHEN PLANNING THE FUTURE:
Emerging marketplace dynamics (new business models, disruptive technologies, changes in consumer behavior and the evolution of categories) changing competitive sets and impacting ‘where to play’ and ‘how to win in that space.’
A decline in marketing effectiveness; how to mitigate it with new strategies (including brand strategy) and best practices which evidence proves are effective and efficient regardless of country or category. (How can that that be? Because they’re based on how all people process information and make decisions.)
Long-standing approaches to competitive advantage and strategic planning are proving to be no match for the factors above. So it’s incumbent on executives to make sure they and their colleagues understand the future they face; have the skills in problem solving and strategic planning to perform in the face of increased difficulty.
THOSE WHO’VE EXPERIENCED OUR ADVICE, FORESIGHT, PRESENTATIONS AND WORKSHOPS TESTIFY TO THE IMPACT:
