Open Programme 

Strategy is a fast-moving game. It’s won by teams, not individuals, and teams who can react. How do you learn to play well?


VISMAP (visual strategy mapping) is a framework that distils the tools from an MBA and combines them on an A2 ‘one-page strategy’ format. It’s easy to learn, so a broad team can be included in the strategy creation process and it’s quick to update when reacting to market changes. The broad engagement builds more wisdom into the strategy and wider ownership of the implementation.
VISMAP includes interactive software that combines strategy, product, market, and finance data into interactive charts that provide understanding for the whole team. It is like a route map that sits at the heart of your business - a Sat Nav to growth!
The VISMAP Open Programme is a 5-day strategic journey intended to give managers the growth tools that SME’s need. Alongside peers from non-competing businesses, you will learn strategy skills and apply them to your business.

Location: The Leadership Academy, 56 John Street, Sunderland, SR1 1QH
Cost: £1,600 plus VAT, inclusive of training, handouts, and software. Maximum of two participants per company. For more than this, talk to us about an in-house programme.
Grants of between 40% and 100% of the cost may be available.

The VISMAP In House Programme is a journey that gives managers strategic growth tools and builds a route-map for growth.
1. Strategy Overview – “Where are we now”? Over 2 hours with the senior team, we help you clarify your objectives. What defines success for you? What is your current company value and what do you want/need it to be? We give you an overview of the VISMAP process and how it can help you grow. We’ll also help you assess your market understanding prior to starting the process.
2. Strategy Building Workshop – “Where do we want to be”? The first workshop coaches you step by step through the strategy building process using the VISMAP one-page storyboard. These are completed for each product family in sub-teams. When completed, it will be clear:
• Which products and services to focus resources on in the future.
• What our competitive edge is by product and how to make it more compelling.
• How to grow sales in current markets and with new products and new markets.
3. Route Map Workshop – “How will we get there”? Once you have created the strategy, the second workshop moves into identifying the actions that will deliver it - strategy is nothing without execution. Using the VISMAP action planning wall, the team creates the route map to complete the journey.
Cost: from £4,800 plus VAT, inclusive of training, handouts, and software. (Grants of between 40% and 100% of the cost may be available).
