593: Chuck Bamford - How to Apply Informed Strategy

The Self-Employed Life

There seem to be as many definitions of strategy as there are people on earth. Practically every business owner has different ideas of what strategy means and how to apply it. It’s time we take a moment to setting our heads straight about strategy. Applying informed strategic practices can be the deciding factor in how successful a business is. Most businesses are built backwards. The right way to build your business is to deeply understand your ideal customer and then construct your business in a way that speaks to them. Additionally, there are many myths about strategy practices that I want to bust for my community of Creative Warriors.  To break down the strategic mindset for us, I’ve brought on Chuck Bamford. Chuck Bamford, Ph.D., is the Managing Partner of Bamford Associates, LLC, a strategy consulting firm that has worked with hundreds of organizations as they develop and implement a compelling strategy. He is an Adjunct Professor of Strategy at Duke University (Fuqua) and the University of Notre Dame (Mendoza), and was previously a professor at Texas Christian University and the University of Richmond, among others. His latest book is The Strategy Mindset 2.0: A Practical Guide to the Design and Implementation of Strategy. Learn more at bamfordassociates.com.

STRANGE WARRIOR “You cannot cut your way to success.” - Chuck Bamford Highlights - Half of strategy is making sure we do all the blocking table stakes expectations are met. The other half is finding two or three things that truly separate you from your competitors.  It is a myth that we shouldn’t care about what our competitors think.  Every business has a perfect customer.  Cost cutting is not a strategy.  Good strategy design starts outside the organization. Structure follows strategy.  The 5 elements that a business should examine to determine their competitive advantage: rare, durable, relatively non-substitutable, relatively non-tradeable, and valuable.  Standing out today isn’t enough.

The Strategy Mindset 2.0 | Chuck Bamford | Episode 105

Peak Performance Leadership (Formerly Moving Forward Leadership)

Far too many organizations formulate their strategy with antiquated approaches designed to make everyone feel good, and then fail to implement anything meaningful. Ineffective strategies, assessed using assumptions rather than quantifiable metrics, muddy organizations’ abilities to hone an identity that will make them stand out. Developing goals around the business’s true competitive advantages — determined using a five-factor test — will distinguish them in the eye of the customer and result in extraordinary returns. Chuck Bamford, Ph.D., is a strategy consultant who has worked with hundreds of organizations to develop and implement a compelling strategy. In his role as a professor for the past 25 years at Texas Christian University, University of Richmond, University of Notre Dame, Duke University and others, he has been honored with 22 Professor of the Year awards.

Find Your Competitive Advantage – The Strategy Mindset 2.0 – Dr. Chuck Bamford

A New Direction

When it comes to business strategy  we are often confused.  We have a tendency to believe in myths like "Our brand is our strategy" or "Our people are our strategy" or "we do SWOT analysis", but none of those are really a strategy much less a competitive advantage.  Sometimes we jump ahead when it comes to our strategy and we decide to write a mission statement, which in reality should be about the strategy and how we will implement it daily, but typically mission statements are way to long, no one in the business actually knows what it means, or is nice sounding, but in reality does not drive the day to day business operations.  For many businesses they fall into the trap of not really knowing their competition and then decide arbitrarily that they have a competitive advantage when the reality is your competition is doing the same thing which is not a competitive advantage at all.  We need a better way.Fortunately for you and your business, professional business strategist Dr. Chuck Bamford joins  us on A New Direction to bring some order and clarity to the business strategy process both in terms of developing a strategy and how you and your business should implement that strategy.   All the information is based on his highly acclaimed book "The Strategy Mindset 2.0: A Practical Guide To The Design and Implementation of Strategy".  The Strategy Mindset is more than just a guide, it is one of the most comprehensive business playbooks to make your business flourish.  Dr. Bamford takes you through step by step to understand how to create a competitive advantage, compare that to your competition, determine if it has real value to your customer, make it part of your on going and changing mission, get everyone on board implementing it, and identifying and finding your perfect customer.  The Strategy Mindset is for anyone in profits or non-profits, C-suite professionals, entrepreneurs, those thinking about starting a business, members of board of directors, investor and more.  The process is even complete with suggested metrics on how to ensure you are truly employing the strategy.  Get ready because The Strategy Mindset is truly a business changer!Please thank our sponsors of A New Direction!  We are so grateful for their financial support in helping the show grow and get to you.EPIC Physical Therapy, if you need better nutrition, post surgery rehabilitation, better movement, or being at the top of your game as an athlete, EPIC PT are the certified professionals with the latest technology to get you back doing  or get you doing what it is that you want to do physically.  Honestly, they are my go to physical therapists, and I have to say that they get me back to doing the things I enjoy safely, quickly, and with great results.  So if you are looking for EPIC relief, EPIC recovery, and EPIC results...then look no further the EPIC Physical Therapy.Linda Craft & Team, REALTORS for more than 35 years they have been at the top of the list when it comes to real estate.  How have they done that?  They create real relationships.  In a low touch, high tech world the one area that they recognize as the most important is truly connecting with you and understanding what you need and want from the home selling and buying process.  The only way they can know that...is by getting to know you!  Come on over to the Real Estate Professionals who focus on the Relationship.  Click on over to Linda Craft & Team, REALTORS...  www.lindacraft.comDon't forget you can listen to AND on The Oak 93.5 fm in Raleigh?  What?  You say you don’t live in Raleigh?  No problem you can stream the show every Thursday at 4 pm EDT and Sunday mornings at 10 am EDT by clicking here OAK 93.5  Tell your friends!
