YOUR STRATEGY HAS SEVEN SECONDS TO CAPTIVATE ITS AUDIENCE

So how are you going to present your strategy? A big wordy document? A lengthy address? Slides full of bullet points?

The best way to engage and involve people is through pictures. Strategy Builder shows you how to creatively combine the best strategy frameworks to orient and animate strategy discussion and development in your team. This visual, interactive guide, with illustrations by Visory, uses real–world examples and practical tips to help you:

- Discover the five key foundations that every strategy should be built upon
- Draw compelling and unique pictures that capture your organization's distinct strategies
- Develop your skills as a leader of strategy discussions
- Understand how to use strategy frameworks and interactive drawing to engage others and achieve 'buy in'

'At last, a way to develop strategic plans and ambitions creatively! Strategy Builder provides vital new tools that could help to demonstrate strategic vision and deliver real strategic impact.'
Vikki Heywood CBE, Chair of The RSA and former Executive Director of the Royal Shakespeare Company
