Helping organizations achieve

GROWTH, RETENTION, LOYALTY & SUSTAINABILITY

Let’s face it, the role of a CEO is a lonely and often stressful job.

In today’s climate, CEO’s have a high level of ambiguity, which can impact growth.

CEO’s need a secret advantage on their team.  Enter KP Strategies.

We work with CEO’s to stay “on” the business vs. “in”.
We know that CEO’s control 45% of the company’s performance2

We guide CEO’s and their leadership team to think through critical elements leveraging a unique framework that drives growth, customer retention, loyalty, and sustainability.

SERVICES

Strategic & Business Planning to Execution

Are you one of the 50% of the CEO’s that aren’t satisfied with your strategy? Having a good strategy isn’t enough. Are you struggling to execute your strategy? Only 8% of executives excel at both. Over 67% of the CEO’s struggle with executing their existing strategic plan1. Yet, as CEO you own the strategy and control the company’s biggest moves.

KP Strategies uses our proprietary Strategy to Execution Framework that starts with the end in mind. This is where most management consulting firms end. They put the plan together and they’re done.

We assess what you currently have in place, what’s working, what’s not and guide the CEO and their leadership team to deliver a winning strategy as well as ensure the leadership team is aligned to successfully communicate and execute the plan. Companies that have a coherent strategy to execution have 3X the growth and 2X the profitability of other organizations.1

We’ve helped countless organizations leveraging the “outside in” and collaboration with the leadership team to create successful strategic plans that are actionable with a yearly business plan that is aligned.

Sales Strategy, Productivity & Transformation

Are you going into a new market and don’t know where to start? Trying to decide what type of sale person you need and the best way to incentivize them to achieve the results? Or, just not happy with your current results and the way your team is selling? KP Strategies can assess your team and give you recommendations and a plan for success.

We start with understanding your goals, then assessing your current sales environment to build a customized plan to help you achieve your results. We’ve helped transform sales forces from product-based selling to solution selling, high-performance selling environment.

Having a consistent pipeline that is predictable is critical to your success. We work with your team to create and drive a high-performance culture that is sustainable.

Customer Experience / Customer Success

Are you one of the 86% of executives that consider customer experience/customer success to be very important3, but aren’t happy with your progress? Is the customer “in the room” every time you’re making a major decision about the company’s direction and focus? Are you one of the elite 35% of the CEO’s that say that their customers are their most important innovation partners?4

If not, KP Strategies can assess where your organization is today, align to your strategy and provide a roadmap to guide you and your leadership team to true customer centricity. There are specific strategies for Business to Business (B2B) vs. Business to Consumer (B2C).

KP Strategies can work with your leadership team to ensure you achieve customer, leadership, and employee experience. We start with assessing your organization to see where you are in the Customer Experience Maturity Model. Then help you implement a program the is customized for you.

We’ve helped organizations start customer and consumer experience programs from scratch, guiding our clients to hire the right leader to lead CX within an organization.

Innovation, Portfolio Analysis & Prioritization
