Strategy &

Operations 

Review

We offer a free strategic and operations review service where we gain a full understanding of your organisation, your people, your strategies and the opportunities and challenges you face in reaching your goals.

We then determine the optimum performance, competencies, processes and IT needed to reach these goals by addressing strategy gaps to compete and succeed.

Among the many challenges facing businesses today, one of the most pervasive is an inability to drive multiple initiatives consistently and successfully toward a defined vision. Often, the source of this inability is the missing leadership alignment to carry out the initiatives with determination and confidence. The ability to define the required future state, identify the existing gaps between the current model and the vision and to achieve leadership alignment and commitment are the chief differentiators that can turn organisations into world-class performers. 

1.

What is the current state of your business?

2.

Are all employees aligned around a clearly understood vision and strategy of the future?

3.

Does the  leadership team agree on the bottlenecks and people problems that stops your organisation from realising your vision?

4.

What actions are required? 

We ascertain the current skill levels of your personnel and identify any organisational, operational and  communication bottlenecks. If there is a gap, we

determine its magnitude, investigate the causes and show you how to close it. 

Is there debate about “where do we go from here” but leadership can't agree on a way forward?

.

Are market changes requiring radical change for you, but leadership doesn’t own the solution?

.

Is your strategy of continuous improvement not having the impact it once had? 

.

Is your culture based on participation and empowerment, but teams don't get on and do things? 

.

Are there large differences of view between leadership and your Board, delaying a course of action?

.

Do you want to create an agreed way forward with the management of a recently acquired company and build trust?

.

Our approach

1.

Foundational Requirements: Prior gto a review, we understand your objectives and associated areas within scope, along with any special considerations or constraints to meet your specific needs. We also gain an appreciation of your guiding principles - mission, vision, values - so our solutions align with and embrace them fully.

2.

Leadership Alignment: There’s a direct correlation between the success of an initiative and the degree of alignment that exists among leadership. Our review drives leadership agreement and alignment around the current state of your organisation, a common vision of the future and the gaps that exist between the two. This aligned agreement creates a powerful force to drive the changes needed to compete and succeed.

3.

Current State Assessment: We conduct a thorough and honest assessment of the way things work today.  This is key to understanding the distance to be travelled to achieve your future vision.

4.

Future State Operating Model Design: A common vision of the future is the centrepiece of the review. This is accomplished by engaging your leadership team, understanding your customers needs, your competitors capabilities and any regulatory requirements as the key drivers for you to compete and succeed.

5.

Gap Analysis: The gaps between the current state and your common vision of the future are listed and defined. These make very clear the barriers to its achievement. Operational and financial impacts are analysed and presented, revealing the projected benefits of successfully achieving the transformation, providing the basis for implementation planning.
