At SageRiver, we partner with you to facilitate transformation. Although we bring rich expertise to each engagement, our primary goal is to create unique, innovative and collaborative experiences that unblock and unlock the wisdom of your organization.
To achieve that goal, we employ a simple but proven methodology that is divided into three phases and undergirded by diligent project management. By understanding the unique goal of each phase—and creating a clear plan to build from one to the next—we can sequence tasks appropriately, engage stakeholders effectively and deliver strategic insights to guide transformation on time and within budget.
The focus of each phase is described below.
Strategic Management Process
Phase 1: Discover
During this phase, we collaborate with you to gather, assess and synthesize information relevant to your needs. Activities typically fall into several categories—project initiation and planning, background information review, and environmental scan and research review.
Phase 2: Design
During this phase, we partner with you to understand, diagnose and synthesize the information gathered during the Discover phase. Our goal is to identify emerging trends, common themes and innovative strategies that will inform our project deliverables and processes.
Phase 3: Deliver
During this final phase, we partner with you to deliver the products, services and outcomes you need. Potential deliverables and outcomes include research reports, strategic plans and recommendations, change initiative implementations, and leadership development and team performance improvements.
SageRiver uses best practices in Project Management to guarantee timely and accurate delivery of excellent project deliverables and outcomes. Key elements of our Project Management practices include a keen focus on effective communications and relationship management, maintaining project milestones and approval points, and ultimately developing positive client partnerships.
