About StratOp

The StratOp Process creates an environment that leads to breakthrough thinking, alignment & focus for leaders, their leadership team and champions of the cause.

StratOp Process Defined

StratOp, a strategic process helping your team clarify where you are, where you’re headed, and how to get there. More than a one-time planning event, StratOp is a system that moves from the mountain top to practical action steps. Wes Legg guides your leadership team to install tools that equip your team to grow your mission impact.


Perspective; 'Where are we now?' If you are in the right perspective, the plan writes itself. The moment we can finally see clearly, the “apex of clarity,” it makes all the difference. Imagine standing on the top of a mountain and looking at the landscape below. Now we can see clearly in all directions.

Planning; 'Where are we headed?'  Through perspective, we find truth and reality: not only the reality of today but also where we are headed.  Core issues emerge. The Team's wisdom begins to create a plan. 

Action; What is important Now? Action follows Planning. The Team develops action initiatives for resolving core issues. A unified action plan unfolds, addressing what is important now to grow mission impact.

​​Structure; What form is right for us? The Team's plan requires its own structural requirements. Structure ensures that the right decisions get made in a timely manner. Structure reflects the need for the right resources & systems to be in the right places.

Management; How are we doing? The plan must be managed. Leaders refer to a single page StratOp summary to be reminded of what is important now in making decisions. When changes or roadblocks arise, change your plan.

Renewal; What must change? Renewal completes the circle. StratOp is a continuous process with built-in renewal. Either we consciously manage our plan with continuous renewal or renew our plan when new core issues arise.

  "If you plan your work and work your plan, the plan will work."  - Tom Paterson, StratOp Designer
