The Lean Organism
Ensuring Your Mission Success
Value is created at Execution. The only part of a strategy the customer sees is execution. Yet, when one googles Business Execution on Amazon.co.uk one gets a mere 2,000 hits whereas Business Strategy gets over 40,000 hits. Is execution really only 2.5% of winning in the marketplace? Of course not.
We need both strategy AND execution for sustainable successRead more »
Driving clarity of the Mission
Customized Strategic Direction Workshops
In a 2 day workshop, we facilitate strategic direction of senior leaders and departments. Our approach includes pre-interviews and a questionnaire.
After a short teaching module to support each element, workgroups build a framework around Objectives / Strategies / Where to Play / How to Win / Measures. This sets a clear direction for the coming 3 to 5 years.Read more »

Positive Change Management
“You cannot step in the same river twice”. Already 2500 years ago, Heraclitus remarked that everything changes. “Panta Rhei”, everything flows. It certainly does in today’s VUCA world.
What also never changes is that change is difficult to manage. There is a reluctance of any organization to evolve. And yet, it is required for sustained success. How do we get there?Read more »
