Capability Development

MISSION: Develop an aligned organizational delivery system that produces strategic fit with strategy, governance, leadership, talent, processes, and culture.

In a world where the only certainty is the increasing pace of change, senior leaders must constantly reevaluate their organization to ensure strategic fit. If you want to grow in emerging markets, do you have the right leaders to lead in those markets? Do you have the right global structure to accelerate decision making across regions and product lines? Do you have the right talent needed to innovate? Will your business culture accelerate your objectives, or detract from them? Superior results are by design.

Once the senior team has a shared vision of the capabilities needed to win, a transition plan is necessary to achieve results. In 2010, HBR indicated that only 37% of executives say their companies are ‘very good or excellent’ at strategy execution. What is the number #1 obstacle? A study by Wharton and Gartner (2003) believe it is “managing change well.”

Our approach to strategy execution is based on the intersection of contemporary strategic planning, organizational effectiveness, and change management linked to our client’s vision.
