Understanding your needs
Without a clear destination and plan for getting there, how will you know when you’ve arrived?
If you were taking your family on a trip, you wouldn’t pile in your car, pull on the road and then try to determine your destination. But smart companies like yours do that everyday.
They start business projects by loading their team into a conference room, and deciding a general direction as vague as “go west!” But they haven’t determined a firm destination, the route they’ll take, or if they have enough fuel to arrive. Most importantly...they haven’t asked why they want to go. We’ve been there too...there is a better way.
Start with strategy
Stop wasting time and money creating features no one wants. Get the right people in the room, and get the best ideas from everyone
Get clear direction
Determine and agree to what success looks like, and how you can get there.
Get all the key people in your organization moving in the same direction to finish a project on time and on budget.
The Strategy Workshop
What is it?
This will be an all-day workshop (at your facility or ours) where we uncover deep insights about your organization, your customers and internal stakeholders, as well as your firm’s goals and benchmarks.
We’ll select from our 30+ interactive exercises based on your objectives and goals. We’ll provide all materials needed for the exercises, as well as a second facilitator to help accommodate more attendees.
Results to expect:
• Get alignment, buy-in, clarity and focus
• Clearly define purpose, personality, and vision
• Identify your users and their needs/pain points
• Identify your strengths and the competition’s weaknesses
• Prioritize goals and metrics for success
• Create a product story and content strategy
• Determine features and architecture
• Gain context through an experience map

Who is this for?
If your organization is feeling stuck or not getting the results you expect, we can guide you to a better way to imagine, decide and execute.
We’ve got an idea for a new product, but are unsure what the next steps should be.
Our team understands how to manage existing products, but doesn’t understand how to build a new app.
We have part of the team we’d need to build an app, but need expertise in design, process, or development.
Modernizing Internal Systems
“The way we’ve always done it” is holding our team back. We need a new approach.
We are ready to scale up, but don’t want to scale our payroll.
We need help determining where to innovate and modernize.
Our applications are inefficient, and we need guidance on if we should improve what we have or rebuild.
We’re spending too much time and money on “patching” our legacy software
Don't take our word for it...
We send surveys to all our workshop participants, and 98% would recommend it to a friend or colleague.
Rebekah Marr of CO.STARTERS talks about the benefits of Sodium Halogen’s Strategy Workshop. “It was an awesome experience for us.”
We were so impressed with their Strategy Workshop, we acquired a stake in Sodium Halogen. Their process gives them the ability to understand our business goals, form a strategy, and then apply it via technology to accomplish those goals.
It has been the catalyst we needed. Since implementing their strategies, our office has seen a 15% increase in revenue last year.”
