Who Are We

Over a decade ago, we started Strategy Focused Group to work with clients across the globe as they were being challenged with business transformation and industry challenges. We realized that each client is different, and their challenges are different. We also realized that their off-the-shelf solutions, which they had tried in the past, did not produce the expected results.

Our Approach

Our approach and solution are to diagnose each client to fully understand their challenges. Through this process, we obtain information and identify their pain points. Then we propose a bespoke solution or, as we say, ‘the prescription.’

Our Background
HRBP MBA Masterclass

Our background as senior leaders and having sat in those client spaces give us an outside-inside approach. Today, we are working globally on a variety of business issues of all sizes and projects.

Our Mission

We solve people's issue within the organization

We help organizations connect Business Strategy with People Strategy. We call ourselves workforce architects.

The information/digital age is causing a transformation in work with a need to adapt to where and how employees work to achieve optimal workforce performance. Going forward, our role will become the workplace/workforce architect.

That entails designing workforces that are agile and built to enable the organization to meet its strategic goals.
