StratOp was created by Tom Paterson. The father of modern management, Peter Drucker, described Paterson as the “Process Practitioner” due to Paterson’s conceiving & developing practical processes & tools around Drucker’s management theories. StratOp therefore stands in the line of arguably the greatest business theoretician, Peter Drucker and the greatest process practitioner, Tom Paterson.
Paterson accomplished a great deal over a distinguished career including patenting the original innovation for ATM PIN technology, crafting the original concept for Space Mountain in Disneyland, leading innovative teams for NASA, Boeing, IBM and RCA, and was commissioned by the Reagan administration to help China’s transition to a market based economy in the 1980s.
But for much of his corporate and consulting career Paterson practiced strategic planning that was often prescriptive, leading to plans that were not implemented – an approach that was unfortunately all too common in decades past as it is today. Spurred on by helpful challenges from executives at RCA and Ingersoll-Rand, Paterson created StratOp, a strategic planning system unlike any other.
StratOp is not a one-time event. Rather, StratOp is a strategic operating system that improves business performance through both a powerful strategic operating plan creation process and a long-term strategic operating plan implementation journey. We can customize the scope, sequence and timing of the following journey plan to best meet your objectives and desired outcomes.
