  • Discovery: Review how the business is performing and what is working/not working.

  • Strategy: Use the ThreeM model to prioritize growth ideas and select one to flesh out into a brief business proposal document.

  • Execution: Determine who will lead the initiative, how to get leadership and stakeholder buy-in, actions you’ll take to fill gaps in people skills, and what performance metrics to monitor.
