Our Approach

What We Do

BlüShift Strategy helps organizations navigate complexity and address change holistically.

There are multiple paths to achieving profitable growth. To help you define which one is right for you and your organization, we take a comprehensive yet tailored approach to each client situation. From the beginning of our relationship, we help identify the critical functions of your business and craft tailored work streams to address each uniquely. And, because you can’t determine your destination without knowing your starting point, we conduct our work across three distinct phases – Discover, Design, and Deploy.

Market Strategy

Blüshift works with the top management of large and mid-size companies to clearly define business goals, identify marketplace challenges, and develop & implement competitive strategies.

Operational Excellence

Blüshift’s extensive experience in operations enables us to quickly develop and implement practical improvement solutions that optimize performance across people, processes and systems within organizations.

Organizational Effectiveness

Leveraging decades of large-scale transformation experience, we work with clients to design optimal organizational structures, including clear roles and accountability, to enable the implementation of strategic initiatives and to drive continuous improvement.

Leadership Development

Effective leadership at all levels of an organization is critical to the success of any business strategy. The BlüShift team is uniquely qualified to provide coaching and leadership development for individuals and teams to equip them with the skills needed to perform at their highest levels.

Performance Management

Blüshift takes a comprehensive and deeply analytical approach to understanding the financial capacity of an organization to ensure long term viability. We identify and monitor the relevant metrics across the organization and establish the processes to manage performance over time.

How We Do It

BlüShift Strategy’s three-phase approach charts the path forward.

01 Discover

Solidify your strategic aspirations

We work with you to solidify your strategic aspirations and get buy-in from your leadership team. Through an assessment of the critical functions of your business across multiple work streams, you will learn the strengths you can exploit as well as the gaps that need filled to set the foundation for growth. At the end of this phase, you will have a quantifiable strategic goal, an understanding of your organization’s readiness to pursue that goal, and insights you can operationalize immediately. (Months 0-3)

02 Design

Develop a comprehensive growth plan

Growth always requires change. Building on what we learn in the Discover phase, we work with key stakeholders to design the future state of the business in support of the strategic growth goals. At the end of this phase, you will have a comprehensive growth plan complete with specific initiatives prioritized by urgency and impact. (Months 3-6)

03 Deploy

Ensure successful implementation

Once the growth plan is complete, we work with you and your team to deploy changes across your organization. Leveraging proven change management techniques, we ensure the change “sticks,” and that your organization is moving towards the same goal. Performance management tools are put into place to measure progress against goals. (Month 6+)

What We Offer

Additional Services

 In addition to our in-depth strategy consulting, we offer other services to help you on your journey toward sustainable and profitable growth.

Top Team Alignment

Achieving alignment at the highest level is essential for the success of any organization. However, it can often be a challenging hurdle, leading to inconsistent performance, stagnation, or even conflict. At BlüShift Strategy, we provide a comprehensive solution to address this crucial need.

We collaborate closely with you and your leadership team, engaging in a series of one-on-one and group discussions to pinpoint areas of alignment and areas of disconnect.

Drawing upon our extensive experience and proven methodologies, we implement targeted interventions designed to unite teams around a shared purpose and resolve any issues that arise along the way.

Our approach fosters improved trust, enhances alignment, and drives tangible progress. With BlüShift Strategy, your top team will be empowered to navigate challenges effectively and achieve collective success.

Expert Meeting Design and Facilitation

While coaching naturally complements our Strategic Planning packages, we also offer standalone coaching services tailored to your strategic needs. Our coaching engagements cover a range of areas within the context of strategy.

Our past work includes coaching CEOs to effectively implement existing plans, assisting in the onboarding process for new C-level executives, optimizing executive time management and prioritization, and providing targeted problem-solving for current challenges.

Executive Coaching

Over the course of 3+ weeks, we will achieve alignment on an identified topic, such as growth opportunities or current business challenges. Prior to our Blüshift-facilitated, full day work session, we will individually interview each of the attendees to synthesize and present our findings and provide a detailed write up of key takeaways and improvement opportunities.

A single, clear path to success does not exist, and as an executive, each pivot point presents infinite possibilities for moving forward.
