Business Strategy Assessment

PI Strategy Assessment™

Find and fix business strategy misalignment—so it becomes a blueprint for your employees.

It’s a beautiful, sunny day. You and your friend decide to rent a kayak. Everything’s fine at first, but then trouble starts. You’re rowing so hard your arms feel like spaghetti—but the boat’s barely moving. You turn back to see your pal rowing in the opposite direction. It’s no wonder you’re making zero progress! 

Misalignment destroys companies, too. 

The PI Strategy Assessment is one-half of the PI Design solution, which ensures everyone rows in the same direction—for max business success.

How does the PI Strategy Assessment work?

Step one

From a list of strategic statements, senior leaders identify the ones they think the company should pursue. (Each statement maps to one of four strategy types.)

Step two

Senior leaders rate their confidence in the company’s ability to pull each strategic priority off.

Step three

Senior leaders view alignment and misalignment between their behavioral profiles and their strategic priorities.

What happens after the assessment?

The second half of the PI Design solution is the Execute Strategy with Confidence workshop. 

Here, you’ll analyze the results of the PI Strategy Assessment, squash any differences, arrive at an agreed-upon business strategy, and craft talent strategies to maximize performance. 

Guided by an expert PI consultant, you don’t have to go it alone. 

Why you need an agreed-upon business strategy

When senior leaders pursue competing goals, they fight, get stuck, and make poor decisions. And that affects every employee in the company. The PI Strategy Assessment is a framework for uncovering misalignment—so execs can work through their differences and get on the same page. With an agreed-upon business strategy, execs can design an aligned talent strategy and tackle top challenges like:

  • Finding the right talent
  • Aligning employees with the business strategy
  • Getting the most out of people
  • Creating a great work environment

The PI Strategy Assessment is the first step in solving these problems. Are you pursuing an Exploring strategy? A Producing strategy? A Stabilizing strategy? A Cultivating strategy?

If you don’t get on the same page about strategy, any people decision you make is a shot in the dark. Don’t waste another day or dollar chasing after competing goals. Assess your strategy to: 

  • Put the right people in the right seats
  • Coach and inspire employees to be great
  • Retain your high performers
  • Crush the competition

Life’s good when every person in the company rows in the same direction. Alignment starts at the top.
