Good strategic decisions are best made after carefully considering the alternative perspectives of a diverse group of experts.
Before embarking on investing time and money into a strategic project, it is important to explore the many possible ways that the intervention can unfold from many different angles and perspectives.
It is useful to tap into the experience of those that have journeyed before you and get their point of view on what they learnt as a result and where new opportunities might lie in the future.
The problem often is that the consultation process is too fragmented, narrow and plays directly into the existing echo chamber of the organisation.
There is limited opportunity for free thought and an objective exploration of the topic.
The consultation process is limited or influenced heavily by the voices in the room who carry a pre-existing biases and personal commercial intent.
Introducing the Cherryflava THINK TANK
The Cherryflava THINK TANK is a online, live via video forum featuring expert practitioners who have experience applying theory to commercial projects who collectively offer organisations their practical perspective on the best possible solutions to business challenges. This forum allows executives to objectively explore the opportunities and offers a valuable mental space to think more openly and freely about what it is that they want to achieve with their investment.
Before making a bet, consult widely so that you can increase the probability of achieving your intended outcome.
The Cherryflava THINK TANK is an in-house conference (so only your organisation is in attendance) featuring a panel of experts from diverse backgrounds and unique practical perspectives. It is intended to spark creative inspiration and provoke new thinking.
The Cherryflava THINK TANK is a morning programme 09h00 - 13h00 for up to 50 client attendees and features at least 5 speakers (AKA ‘thinkers’); it is hosted and facilitated by Jonathan Cherry of Cherryflava Media.
