”PJ Strategy Academy is an eyeopener! PJ Strategy Academy provides new insights in the strategy process. The very personal approach and hands-on training exercises make you think through strategy dilemmas and come up with better ideas and actionable plans. A truly valuable experience thanks to Peter Olyslager and Jeroen van Velzen”.
“Exciting and stimulating! The PJ Strategy Academy combines structure and creativity,
with proven methods and authentic approach”.
“A very inspiring process!
The dialogue and the process with Peter Olyslager helped me significantly to formulate the well-founded strategic choices.
The provided methodology stimulates creativity (3D model). Internal and external factors are analysed and evaluated.
Strategic options are tested, weighed and evaluated from different perspectives.
In short, a complete, concrete and robust method which is permanently applicable for both ‘for profit’ and ‘not for profit’ companies and organisations”.
‘Peter Olyslager has written ”legacy”. More than 3 years ago we started to work with PJ Strategy and we still make use of the insights and especially the strategic fundament created during an excellent partnership for nearly one year. A clear transition has arisen.’

Discover and learn about WHAT’s driving your customers success!’
The top-4 reasons to choose the PJStrategy Academy according to Aart Labee – Director Strategy & Business Insight at McDonald’s Europe – Academy Member 2015.
”Straight away applicable”
The tools and exercises of the PJ Strategy Academy are applicable in daily business, straight away
”Forces you to think and act out of the box”
The group is forced to think and act differently during the process
”Real life case study”
There’s no better way to learn than dealing with a real business/company case, outside your industry and comfort zone
”Great group dynamics”
Working with a diverse group of fellow-students across different industries is very challenging and triggers you to ‘go the extra mile’
’PJ Strategy stimulates intense discussions and succeeds to get perspectives and idea’s out of the group. The evaluation models of PJ Strategy gave us the needed insights to choose a new direction. This means progress. The PJ process gives much reflection. Step by step we understand that we need to change and innovate into a new direction.’
”The PJ Strategy Academy has a very complete, robust and creative process”. ”I really enjoyed this academy and it was a pleasure and insightful to work with Jeroen van Velzen and Peter Olyslager”.
’PJ Strategy enabled us to get into a real strategy process instead of a strategy project. This takes longer, but created the impact needed.
Next to that PJ Strategy could get us into a structural strategic discussion where we created many different strategic growth perspectives we needed to reach our very ambitious objectives.
The strategic structure PJ Strategy anchored in our organisation helps us significantly to reach the strategic efficiency needed.’
”Unconventional, pragmatic, enjoyable. It gets the best out of organisations”
’PJ Strategy puts a lot of strategic marketing and logic thinking into the process, but the most valuable for me was the psychological aspect. Finding out our own competences and more important our real interests/passions and why, how and where to be successful was a real eye-opener. Every company and everyone has interesting strengths, but specific skills are needed to apply these into the right direction.’
’The beginning of the process was hard work as PJ Strategy involved our people intensively. But as a result of the structure, strategy knowledge and the bottom-up approach the team process gave us new energy and different opportunities for the coming years. In these challenging economic times we would definitely recommend PJ Strategy.’
”A serious level of strategic skills, knowledge and experience is needed to be successful in this academy, to see the impact at a company through the different thinking and tools”.
”I enjoyed several academies and ended up as an Academy Leader. The academy gives companies a structure to move on, to create more perspectives, to manoeuvre strategically instead of operationally or even opportunistically”.
”Very pragmatic insights how to create impact for a company”.
’PJ Strategy engaged us in a process, put a structure on the conversation, and illuminated insights and opportunities that we otherwise wouldn’t have been able to see. This strategy team process created excellent internal discussions and was exactly what we needed to improve our results in this very competitive market.’
”The PJ Strategy Academy takes you into a pragmatic and creative process enabling a structure and alignment between the Academy Members as they are the real strategy team of a potential client”.
”It was deeply insightful and very enjoyable to be part of a group of international, very experienced partners and to be guided by Peter Olyslager in this Academy”.
”The PJ Strategy Academy gave me, next to strategic business skills, knowledge and overview, most of all an impressive structure very much needed for me, but a must for many companies”.
”We had a very challenging case, but the PJ Strategy approach gave the needed impact”.
”The key topic is strategic business skills to understand the challenges of companies and to bring in the methods needed”. ”Very insightful!”.
