Having a Clear Direction is Critical
In the business world, we hear time and time again that tactics and strategy are separate concepts. We believe differently.
At WE•DO, tactics inform strategy, and vice-versa. Why do we keep them in the same container? So our clients can grasp the "big picture" byproduct of a strategic plan while seeing the real-world impact of smaller tactics, all in the same discovery session.
The old strategic planning tools in the toolbelt are outdated and rusty. They leave companies empty-handed and confused about how to turn their "fifty thousand-foot views" into actions. We've developed a new methodology called the QUAD Model Method to amplify your vision, align it with your goals, and set up the necessary steps to get you there.
The Benefits of QUAD Model

The Road Forward
This QUAD establishes a pathway get you to where you want to be. That path is informed by the information in The Big Picture QUAD. The Road Forward breaks down your goals into four phases: quarter, 1 year, 3 years, and 10 years.
Focus & Solve
In this QUAD, we develop action items for your quarter goals & brainstorm ideas about how to accomplish them. The Focus & Solve QUAD organizes & chunks out your quarter goals by order of priority.
Here, we break down the larger pieces that we want to accomplish. The resulting actionable items are tied to each larger element. Each item is then assigned to an "owner" & given specific due dates. Learn more about continuous improvement.
