Developing the Plan

One of the keys to developing a differentiated strategy is the planning process itself. SM Advisors will customize the Stop Selling Vanilla Ice Cream planning process to address the specific needs of your organization.

Strategic Plan Development

The Stop Selling Vanilla Ice Cream Process ensures a disciplined process is followed and you achieve the results you want. SM Advisors has over 100 planning methodologies that are used in optimizing the strategy and talent for your organization. The models help the planning team determine “what we want to be when we grow up” and how are we going to get there by helping the team develop, evaluate, and finalize the strategy for the organization.

Our primary responsibility is to guide the planning team through the process, challenge them at all decision points and offer counsel when appropriate. The planning process should involve employees at all levels of the organization. SM Advisors implements several methods to accomplish company wide support and buy-in of the plan.

The SM Advisors Approach

  • Our Advisors will schedule an initial meeting at no charge to meet with you. We will identify your needs and objectives, share the Stop Selling Vanilla Ice Cream Process and then develop a customized proposal for your organization
  • We firmly believe that external Advisors are effective in driving project completion, but they must be managed properly to control costs and achieve an attractive ROI for your company
  • SM Advisors will recommend a process that will minimize your overall costs while maximizing the value to you and your company
  • No surprises approach – A written proposal outlining the planning process, responsibilities, costs and timing will be prepared after our initial consultation
