“The Vision to Action strategy development process, as practised by Ruud, looks very simple and actually it is a straight forward common sense process. This most probably makes it that powerful. I did the strategy process now for several organizations (ELC, LightingEurope, The Global Lighting Association) and it always has resulted in tangible action plans, supported by relevant parts of the organization. And the process is fun as well and works as binding factor.
Ruud Gal is a consultant who carefully matches the needs of an organization with his wide experience in innovation processes and his enormous tool box for designing workshops. He gives just enough push to get you out of your normal thinking modes, and to try other routes. This leads very often to interesting and helpful outcomes."

“Our experience with Ruud Gal was a very positive one: he built a tailor-made workshop for our organization, rapidly understanding our needs and focusing on them both in terms of outcome, operating methods and timeframe. We would definitively recommend his work to other organizations.”

Develop Game Philips - Disney License Agreement, Eindhoven
“Ruud is an expert in building wargames to test strategies. Together with Ruud, we build a war game to test what competitors would do if we would launch our Philips Disney kids lighting products. After the wargame I was able to understand the potential moves on market introduction strategy from competitiors and customers. Building the game, Ruud was able to guide my thoughts through the process and make me see possibilities and structures I wouldn’t have seen otherwise. The game has been played by four groups of 24 people. The response from the participants (as well Sr Directors as professionals) was that it is an excellent game, they learned a lot. Without Ruud we wouldn’t have been able to build the game and get the depth of insight we got from developing and playing it.”
