Strategy without execution is hallucination! - Mike Roach

Without execution, strategy is merely theory.  Most frameworks, guides, and business gurus who discuss corporate strategy focus purely on the theory of great strategy, but don’t teach the art of great execution.
LearnPPT’s latest framework covers the topic of Strategy Execution and Organizational Effectiveness.
 A great strategy may put you on the competitive map, but only great execution can keep you there. Most organizations struggle with execution. They understand the strategy, but can’t translate that vision into the day-to-day changes to operations and actual implementation.
This document addresses the art and principles of business strategy execution. Topics include:
  • 4 Building Blocks of Strategy Execution
  • 17 Traits of Successful Strategy Execution
  • Transformation Program Design
  • Balanced Scorecard Overview
  • Blue Ocean Strategy (4 Organizational Hurdles)


The document will explain various frameworks related to business strategy execution and includes PowerPoint templates to be used for your own presentations and analysis.

Growth strategy is typically the crux of any organization’s business strategy. Achieving sustainable growth is a challenge faced by all companies, whether you’re just a startup or a gorilla.

There are several main barriers that inhibit continued growth. These include coming up with break-through innovations, execution challenges, and balancing growth at the expense of profitability.

In framing the growth challenge, there are typically 3 “horizons” a company must cross and overcome. The first is to extend and defend it core business. This is critical for near-term performance and, oftentimes, too much of a focus. Successfully growing through this horizon requires very strong operational managers and leadership. The second horizon is to build emerging businesses. The objective is to drive or invest in ventures that leverage or replicate the existing business model and capabilities. Successful navigation through this horizon requires entrepreneurial members and business builders. The final horizon focuses on creating viable options for future growth. This requires input from “visionaries” and unconventional thinkers.

LearnPPT has a comprehensive Growth Strategy toolkit, which discusses these growth challenge and presents several frameworks in addressing, creating, and managing sustainable business growth. You can find the document here:

This toolkit is 31 slides. It presents and compares the traditional approach to growth strategy, such as Porter’s Five Forces, to the newer age Blue Ocean Strategy methodology of creating an uncontested market. In addition, it lays out a framework for undertaking a growth strategy project initiative. (You can find a detailed description of the document at the bottom of this post.)

LearnPPT is a leading online resource for presentation materials. Its range of products range from PowerPoint templates to business strategy frameworks (like the one on pricing strategy). All documents were created for an by top management consulting firms. Since its founding in 2010, the LearnPPT documents have been used by customers in Fortune 500 companies, top MBA programs, and leading management consultancies across over 45 countries.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE GROWTH STRATEGY TOOLKIT

The Growth Strategy Strategy Toolkit is a 31-slide PowerPoint. It contains both instructional slides about growth strategy frameworks and editable templates. This document is divided into 4 sections:

  • Growth Challenge (6 slides)
  • Traditional Strategy Thinking (5 slides)
  • Modern Strategy Thinking (11 slides)
  • Growth Strategy Project (5 slides)

Growth Challenge
In this first section, we explain how all companies are faced with the challenge of achieving sustainable growth. Specific growth challenges and situations are identified and explained. We show how a successful company must navigate across 3 growth “horizons,” which involve both optimizing the existing core business and creating new ones. Specific barriers and paths to growth are enumerated.

Traditional Strategy Thinking
This section discusses the focus and thinking of traditional growth strategy frameworks, such as Porter’s Five Forces and the GE-McKinsey Matrix. There is a deep dive into Porter’s Five Forces, including template slide for presenting a Porter’s Five Forces analysis summary.

Modern Strategy Thinking
This third section is the largest section of the document. It includes a detailed comparison between Traditional Growth Strategy Thinking versus Modern Growth Strategy Thinking across the areas of industry, strategy, market, resources, among other components. The focus is on teaching the Blue Ocean Strategy framework, include the related topics of portfolio positioning, value identification, and value curves. Specific examples are provided, along with template slide for presenting a Value Curve analysis summary.

Growth Strategy Project
This final project teaches how to conduct an actual growth strategy project. A three-phase approach to strategy development is introduced. Specific work streams, activities, and deliverables are identified for each phase of the project. This is the same approach to conducting a growth strategy engagement used by many strategy consulting firms.

Pricing strategy is a critical component to any product marketing plan.  It drives not only product margins, but determines its overall profitability–as its a primary lever to product positioning.

Pricing strategy begins with a simple question–to skim or to penetrate the market?  Price skimming involves introducing the new product or service at a relatively high price point.  Then, with time, as competition increases, the pricing for the product is lowered.  Companies typically engage in this strategy when they’re first to the market and feel they have a substantial lead or enough barriers to entry against its competitors.

On the other hand, penetration pricing involves introducing a product or service at a low initial entry price point, often lower than competing products in the market.  The motivation behind this is to capture as much market share as possible.  Companies should only engage in this low-cost player strategy if they can sustain a lower cost structure relative to peers.  This lower cost structure can be derived to a specific advantage, be it a process, technology, resource, legal, geography, or other differentiator.

LearnPPT has created a very comprehensive toolkit on Pricing Strategy development.  You can find the product here:

The toolkit is 40-slide PowerPoint presentation that includes the topics of price skimming versus penetration pricing, pricing tactics, product adoption lifecycle, price curve analysis, and price sensitivity analysis.  Furthermore, the document includes an accompanying pricing sensitivity Excel financial model.  (You can find a  detailed description of the document at the bottom of this post.)

LearnPPT is a leading online resource for presentation materials.  Its range of products range from PowerPoint templates to business strategy frameworks (like the one on pricing strategy).  All documents were created for an by top management consulting firms.  Since its founding in 2010, the LearnPPT documents have been used by customers in Fortune 500 companies, top MBA programs, and leading management consultancies across over 45 countries.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE PRICING STRATEGY TOOLKIT

The Pricing Strategy Toolkit includes both a 40-slide PowerPoint and a Price Sensitivity Excel Financial Model. The PowerPoint portion contains instructional slides around developing a solid pricing strategy, as well as documentation for the included financial model. It is divided into 5 sections:

  • Pricing Strategy (7 slides)
  • Pricing Approach (8 slides)
  • Price Sensitivity Analysis (10 slides)
  • Pricing Tactics and Terminology (11 slides)

Pricing Strategy
This first section presents a detailed discussion around the overarching pricing strategy of Price Skimming or Penetration Pricing. These two strategies are compared and put into the context of where your product sits along the Product Adoption Lifecycle. Advantages and disadvantages are enumerated for both Price Skimming strategy and Penetration Pricing strategy.

Pricing Approach
This section focuses on the quantitative approach to calculating your optimal price point, based on your selected pricing strategy. We walk through a three-phase approach to determining the appropriate price point: 1) data collection, 2) analysis and insights, and 3) pricing. Price curve analysis is introduced, along with several examples illustrating how price curve analysis is used.

Price Sensitivity Analysis
The focus of this section is price sensitivity modeling. We walk through a five-step process to deriving a formula for price sensitivity. This process addresses, defines, and teaches the following concepts: 9 drivers to price sensitivity, elasticity factors, and threshold of no elasticity. The 9 drivers to price sensitivity are as follows:

  • Reference Price Effect
  • Difficult Comparison Effect
  • Switching Costs Effect
  • Price-Quality Effect
  • Expenditure Effect
  • End-Benefit Effect
  • Shared-cost Effect
  • Fairness Effect
  • The Framing Effect

At the end of this section, we show how to create a financial model out of the derived formulas. This is the embedded Excel financial model. Documentation for the financial model is also included in this section.

Pricing Tactics and Terminology
This toolkit closes with overviews for a number of pricing tactics. These pricing tactics are as follows:

  • Value Pricing
  • Loss Leader Pricing
  • Psychological Pricing
  • Going Rate Pricing / Price Leadership
  • Tender Pricing
  • Price Discrimination
  • Predatory Pricing
  • Absorption Pricing
  • Marginal Cost Pricing
  • Cost-Plus Pricing

For each pricing tactic, there is a slide showcasing the tactic’s definition, examples, and list of related pricing tactics.
