Capability Assessment

MISSION: Prioritize and align on the organizational capabilities needed to achieve strategy and return the largest competitive advantage for resources expended.

Research consistently shows that 70% of all strategies fail when executed throughout an organization. What is often overlooked is the senior team’s alignment on what is needed to win, and the changes required to achieve success. If we grow within emerging markets, where should we focus our investments? Do we have the expertise and skill-sets to lead in those markets? Can we translate customer diversity to effective segmentation schemes?

We work with the CEO and senior team to develop a collective vision of the capabilities needed to win in their marketplace. Partnering together, we identify, define, and prioritize the organizational capabilities critical to successful strategy execution.

WHY CONDUCT A CAPABILITY ASSESSMENT?

  • Improve confidence that the long-term value proposition, and alternative business strategies will be successful within the organization’s context
  • Discern how to improve strategic focus and execution for resources expended
  • Agree on the aligned vision for the developed capabilities
  • Identify barriers to strategy execution
  • Target the investment of resources to maximize value and minimize cost

At the completion of this work, our clients have a collective vision of the prioritized capabilities needed to win, performance standards against current and future realities, and aligned views on the potential barriers to successful strategy execution.
