TDB Group Truss Framework™
TDB Group Strategic Advisory, in many ways, operates much like an architectural firm. Instead of building structures to house our institutional partners we design and build the infrastructures (the people, the financial models, protocols, and systems) that will help our partners execute for short and long-term growth. After many years of garnering experience, we used a case study process of our scores of projects to create the TDB Group Truss Framework™. Architects build a truss, a structural assemblage of vertical, diagonal, and horizontal members to form a rigid support system for a structure. We have distilled the strategic and infrastructure planning and execution into four key steps, The TDB Group Truss Framework™ entails assessment, mapping, pathway, and benchmarking that is customized to match partner needs.
Use of focus groups, interviews, and survey tools
In a series of meetings use the assessment data to create a large-scale picture of the assets, gaps and potential opportunities
Create a set of recommendations grounded in the assessment, mapping, and pathway activities that ensure a process for monitoring and accountability
Use the mapping exercise to outline potential opportunities for teams to vet, narrow and select
