We incorporate strategy, leadership and teamwork principles in all our project work to improve communication, understanding and implementation of value creating strategies.
Case Example: Strategies developed without input and participation of the senior management or product management teams are usually poorly understood and rarely implemented. Our facilitation process encourages cross-functional input as well as strategy testing and evaluation. This process is sure to improve not only the quality of the strategy, but also the probability of successful implementation.
In certain cases, we use simulation as a teambuilding tool to help bring together different views on a complex strategic or business problem. In other situations, we work with leadership and team-training experts that are involved in multi-year organizational transformation and culture change programs.
Case Example: An organizational development specialist engaged by senior management for a multi-year, multi-division culture change process called on us to help value strategic alternatives. We participated in faclitating senior management sessions to help develop a shared, business model, and better understanding of the competitive industry dynamics. Sessions were videotaped and the tapes used to coach individual members on their team problem-solving skills.
Case Example: In another case, after working with a senior management team to develop a strategy, teamwork training was used in selective divisions to improve the understanding of the strategy and build implementation success down the line.
Case Example: Management wanted to add a greater understanding of the value of change as part of their strategy planning process. We facilitated planning sessions and valued strategic alternatives so management could better understand the implications of different strategic options.
Change is difficult. Few leaders understand the risk and value of alternative strategies. We believe our approach to strategy development, risk assessment, and leadership development is unique and valuable to any organization, especially those undergoing industry transitions and/or dramatic change.
Our independent assessments and valuation tools do improve the chances for success.
