Note 1) What is a strategist (corporate strategist)?

Strategist is a new type of profession that "supports client companies by making a one-stop effort from strategic planning (*2) to execution support (*3)."
You may think that a profession close to a strategist is a consultant, but a consultant is a profession in strategy formulation,
and does not take care of tactics (product production, solution construction, organizational design, etc.).
In this way, it cannot be denied that the specialized human resources that support client companies are partial support such as consultants and creators. It is true that it is possible to provide highly effective measures because it is a specialized service. At present, corporate activities of customers are carried out in a very wide range. Therefore, it seems that specialized services alone cannot solve the essential problems of companies.

Yes, corporate activities are said to be “complicated”, and the steering in the midst of all the various factors is directly linked to business results. There are many different things you can do to adapt to the changing market environment. That is exactly why there is a strategist. "Because you can understand the strategy, it is possible to use the tactics (product production, solution construction, organizational design, etc.) to maximize the effect of the strategy, and to maximize the effect of the planned strategy." You can also "execute".

When I think about it again, in the past, historical strategists such as Akira Morozuka and Kansuke Yamamoto were active. Currently, we are shifting to an economic war centered on companies.
Therefore, the existence and training of strategists are important.

Note 2) What is strategic planning?

Strategic planning refers to the structure of management and planning, including the strategy level of “from strategy to planning, from planning to budget”. It began to be noticed in the 1960s and is still used by many companies as a basic mechanism for moving organizations.
Specifically, the six corporate activity elements are "1. Survey/analysis", "2. Philosophy/Business domain", "3. Business strategy", "4. Marketing", "5. Management", and "6. Operation". Classify In “1. Research/Analysis”, the environment surrounding the company/service/product and targets are analyzed, and the strategic concept is designed. In "2. Philosophy/Business domain", we also propose redefinition of corporate philosophy/domain and redefinition of services/products.
In "3. Business Strategy," the business strategy of the company is formulated. In "4. Marketing," the marketing strategy for the products and services of the business is formulated. In "5. Management," the organizational and financial measures are designed. To do. Finally, in "6. Operation", the execution plan and KPI and KGI are designed. This enables us to find answers to every phase of a company's and product/service challenges.

Note 3) What is execution support?

Strategists carry out strategic planning and support execution until KPI and KGI realization is called "execution support". We thoroughly support companies by using various methods from execution to achievement of goals.
