"Strategy is buying a bottle of fine wine when you take a lady out for dinner. Tactics is getting her to drink it."
Strategy is everything. Just ask any losing sporting team. Or anyone fighting a war on two fronts. Or ask Kodak, they said no to digital photo technology. The Solution Engine helps clients to set great strategies that create or unlock the value they seek from their enterprise or markets.
"In preparing for battle I have always found that plans are useless, but planning is indispensable."
Dwight D. Eisenhower
Fortune favours the prepared. Great plans have underpinned every great endeavour undertaken. The Solution Engine helps our clients to prepare great plans which make execution all the better, and all the easier and even old Helmuth would agree.
"If I had an hour to solve a problem I'd spend 55 minutes on the problem and 5 minutes thinking about solutions."
The last thing anyone wants to do is create a solution for a symptom, not a problem. The Solution Engine helps clients by creating solutions that deal with the underlying issue or problem, thereby creating or unlocking the value they seek.
"No battle plan ever survives first contact with the enemy."
Field Marshall Helmuth von Moltke
Great execution is everything. When all else is equal, it is consistently the difference between the great, and the forgettable. The Solution Engine helps our clients as a trusted business advisor to execute superbly to create or unlock the value they seek.
