4 phases to navigate the complexity of growth with clarity

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Suspendisse varius enim in eros elementum tristique.

Phase 1

Market Positioning

You might already know where you stand, but do you know where you can stand out? Any strategy needs to be grounded in the realities of your market and your customers.

This foundational phase sets the stage for our strategy development journey by providing you with crystal-clear insights and reinforced thinking into your market with ways to capitalise on your positioning effectively.

Workshop 1

Market Segmentation

Map out the dynamics of the markets and customers you’re currently serving so that we can identify the specific problems and needs you’re addressing with your unique offering.

Workshop 2

Competitive Environment

From your understanding of your market, we use Porter’s Five Forces to understand what the market looks like from your customer’s perspective so that your value truly outshines the rest.

Workshop 3

Value Proposition

Synthesise your understanding of your market and competitive environment into a compelling one-liner value proposition that will serve as the cornerstone of your strategy.

What you’ll get

We consolidate a vast amount of information into your living strategy document to be reviewed by your leadership team so that you’re (literally) speaking off the same page.

  • a reinforced understanding of the market you play in and why
  • a new perspective on how your customers think
  • a simple way to explain the value you offer

Graham Hall

There were external factors that didn’t allow the business to grow in the intended vision.

What the process did do, was help me accept that reality and try different strategies to remedy the issues we were facing in the market.

It has made me more analytical about what I do and what we take on. I sit and assess things before I make a decision.

Phase 2

Competitive Growth Strategy

Know your battlefield as well as you know your product. In Phase 2, you’ll dive deeper into what sets your business apart in the market and how you can outmanoeuvre the competition.

Workshop 1

Competitive Advantages

Just because you stand out doesn’t mean your target customer will choose you.

We identify what sets you apart from your competition so you can establish your true moat and consistently win in the market.

Workshop 2

Growth Strategy Approach

There are many ways to grow a business: geographical expansion, vertical integration, diversification, etc.

We’ll help you select the right path with the greatest chance of success to achieve the best possible results.

Workshop 3

SWOT Analysis

By being honest about what keeps you up at night, leverage our more practical and actionable approach to SWOT analysis to outmanoeuvre your competition and ensure success in your growth strategy.

What you’ll get

The insights and decisions from this phase are integrated into your living strategy document, providing you with a clear competitive strategy that brings focus to everything that you do.

  • a clear understanding of what sets you apart in the market
  • well-informed decisions about how you’ll grow and compete
  • a new sense of focus on how you’re going to win

Through this process, I've realised that expanding Bungalo isn't as daunting or risky as I initially thought. What's really hit home for me is like we've been given a roadmap with bite-sized, achievable steps to cross the river, knowing when and how, and feeling confident in those decisions.

This clarity, this sense of not being alone in the entrepreneur's journey with Metavolve as a sounding board, has been a game-changer.

Phase 3

Strategic Direction

Phase 3 of our Strategy Development Programme is where your future becomes clear. It's about envisioning your business's success and setting long-term goals and medium-term objectives that show what needs to be true and what needs to be achieved for your vision to become a reality.

Workshop 1

Vision Story

Through a unique meditative experience with your leadership team, visualise what the future looks like for you and the business.

We’ll then integrate the different perspectives into one vivid story that authentically captures your business's purpose, mission and vision.

Workshop 2

Long-term goals

Your vision story sets the stage; now, it's time to think through how you’re going to get there.

Reverse-engineer your vision into long-term goals through a non-traditional approach that moves away from mere targets to define what needs to be done.

Workshop 3

Medium-term objectives

Long-term goals paint the picture but don’t explain what needs to be prioritised now.

We use medium-term objectives to break down your long-term goals into achievable bite-size chunks to bridge the gap between vision and execution.

What you’ll get

Your living strategy document will be augmented with a set of milestones that show what needs to be done to achieve your vision so that it’s no longer an aspiration but a clear and well-thought-through direction.

  • the ability to explain what your business is and where you’re headed in a few compelling sentences
  • a strongly aligned leadership team that has collectively thought through how your vision will be realised
  • a cascaded logic of what you need to do to build the business that you envision

I really enjoyed the journey of verbalising our thoughts, discussing what's happening in the business, where we need to direct our attention, prioritising, and making sense of it all. It's quite clear now that with a few small changes, we're onto something really cool.

This passion project has the real capability of becoming much more. I think we've got the right things to drive this; we just needed a bit of direction to ensure we're taking the most direct route to achieve our goals.

Phase 4

Strategic Roadmap & Execution Plan

As you step into the final phase of our Strategy Development Programme, it's time to turn profound clarity into powerful execution.

This phase is all about translating your insights and decisions into a clear actionable roadmap. You've thought through your strategy —now, let's make it happen.

Workshop 1

Annual Objectives

Using your growth strategy and strategic direction, identify what you need to achieve for this to be a successful year.

We set quantifiable targets across three performance levels for you to know the difference between ‘good enough’ and ‘shooting the lights out’.

Workshop 2

Preparing To Execute

With your SWOT analysis as a guide, select the specific SWOT elements that relate to each objective.

We then help you identify the problems that need to be solved, where you should dedicate your time and attention, and where to invest to achieve your annual objectives.

Workshop 3

Quarterly Priorities

Select and prioritise your key objectives for the next quarter and establish KPIs that demonstrate short-term success.

We then help you translate these priorities into projects with designated project leaders who will be responsible for execution.

What you’ll get

Your living strategy document will be finalised with your roadmap and execution plans. We finish the programme by handing over your living strategy document and ensuring you have the framework, clarity and confidence you need to execute your exceptional strategy with ease.

  • priorities for the year and quarter ahead so that you can have unwavering focus
  • a documented list of everything you need to set useful forward-facing budgets
  • a set of projects with clear responsibilities so you and your team can divide and conquer

The biggest lesson was learning to let go and trust my team.

Now I'm less involved in the micro-details, and more focused on scaling the business. Moving forward, it's all about accountability.

I'm getting my team to shift from a "just ask Adriaan" approach to a more self-sufficient way of working.

As the first quarter comes to an end, we have already achieved 80% of our last year's sales and have reactivated 60% of our agriHUBS, with a strong pipeline of over 100 new agrimerchants awaiting to be onboarded!

Our operational team has grown, and the onboarding is taking shape well, much better than last year, as I have been able to break down the strategy and communicate it in the onboarding sessions.

Team Morale is high!
