Strategy & Planning

You only really have an effective strategy

when you know what you’re not going to do.

Loving the problem

We will always spend time on the problem you need solving, looking at it from different angles. Jump to the solution too quickly, and you’ll create something that will topple over to easily. 

Business, charities and public services like the way we ask challenging questions, review what has happened before, map intelligence on what is working elsewhere and look at the data in depth. 

 

Building a roadmap

When you have the evidence, the fun really begins. 

We’ve used our planning and strategy tools with over 350 businesses since 2015, building logical, ambitious, practical and achievable roadmaps – that are written in plain English, with colourful design that you want to immerse yourself in. 

We don’t create anything to gather dust in a drawer.

Making the case

Good strategies are inclusive of all stakeholders’ needs, and plans are clear about exactly who is doing what (and what success looks like).

We’ve helped write strategies that have unlocked £millions of funding, shaped national policy, turned around struggling companies and given entrepreneurs a new lease of life. Whatever case you need to make, or change you need to engineer – we’ll get you there.

always possible helped us with our strategic plan, which was an immensely useful time together. Platforms for speaking and discussions in real life, and with podcast opportunities, have been really good too.

Adam Muirhead, Institute for Youth Work

The Chair and Trustees were very pleased with the final strategy and it’s now up on our website and we’ve been launching it yesterday and today.

I’d like to thank you all for your work on this.
