Strategy Development

Strategy Development for Sustainable Production and Consumption Systems

Strategy development is the pro-active side of policy, value chain analysis and company non-financial reporting, transforming the data into actionable strategies.

Just as stocks and flows dictate the rhythm and the periodicity of a system, so in strategy development the resources at hand dictate the pace with which key milestones can be achieved. Identifying the key stakeholders who have the power to determine the desired changes, as well as their interests and positioning is essential knowledge determining the direction of each strategy. While the envisaged objectives can be noble and ambitious, strategies are oftentimes implemented in sub-optimal circumstances. Prioritizing the most impactful interventions, ones that can create synergies and coalitions with other existing networks to maximise results is essential.

The challenge of Strategy Development

Strategy development is an exercise of navigating into the future, and is therefore inherently uncertain. Unexpected changes in staffing, political developments can all influence event the best of strategies. Finding appropriate milestones, and developing several pragmatic scenarios are therefore essential to navigating ahead comfortably in a constantly changing environment.
