A purpose articulates the reason an organisation exists. It is a north star which guides the long-term development and direction of a business. Most importantly, purpose is a critical driver and enabler of long-term sustainable growth. In reality, few organisations ever truly unlock the full power of purpose.
At Cognosis, we believe that purpose is the critical starting point for successful strategy.
…to customers who are attracted to businesses that stand for something bigger than the product they actually sell
… to commercial performance, as businesses that don’t take purpose seriously fall further behind the pack
…to employees who increasingly expect more of their employers and want to know their work is making a difference
BENEFITS OF AN AUTHENTIC PURPOSE
An authentic purpose should provide clarity and focus, acting as a north star to guide all long-term strategic decision-making.
Motivation and Belief
Purpose provides a common narrative for the organisation, creating empowerment and belief amongst all stakeholders.
Purpose enables deeper connections with customers and provides a powerful innovation platform on which to shape value propositions.
