Execution & Transformation
The VUCA environment demands that dispersed organizations are agile – able to focus, organize and engage people efficiently and effectively as the operating context changes. Covid-19 and business resilience and continuity demands the same; perhaps more urgently.
Agility requires collective leadership capability – an adaptable, durable enterprise approach to leading and leadership which develops, executes and evolves strategy in the face of changing context and unexpected progress while pursuing change, transformation, innovation and business performance improvement. Agility requires the creation of 'clarity' and 'emotional engagement' on a dynamic basis; this is harder to do in dispersed and remote working conditions.
Distributed leaders in a team of teams make strategy meaningful to align thinking and priorities; shared leadership, facilitated de-centralised decision making and collaborative planning harnesses peoples’ expertise and commitment, and releases energy and creative thinking.
Structural agility influences how quickly decisions are informed and made, and how co-ordination and collaboration are enabled in the execution of a plan. Rapid reconfiguration is facilitated by a common approach to defining role-relationships and aligning accountability and authority (both vertically and laterally). Influence, not 'telling' is essential, and roles not underpinned by authority are ultimately untenable.
Our approach to decsion-making practice , informed by and combined with digital exploitation, builds cognitive and competitive advantage.
VUCA - Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity, Ambiguity; a term first used in the US Army War College, 1987.
Our services deliver real value. We collaborate, research, question and challenge to co-create and embed scalable, durable and sustainable consultancy and applied learning solutions for individual leaders, complete leadership teams, business units and organizations.
Our practical solutions are informed by integrating and exploiting the latest academic research, real world evidence, and our own in-depth experience.
We fuse live challenges —e.g. transformation and change, business continuity, innovation, market disruption— with business strategy execution and capability development. We don’t do the transformation to you; we help you to make the transformation yourself.
We help develop your internal expertise to ensure that initiatives are holistic, embedded and sustainable. We facilitate learning by exploiting the virtuous circle of experiential, conceptual and applied learning. We make learning relevant by integrating it with real challenges. Face to face learning time is enhanced with digital 'learn before' and 'learn after'.
Our consulting optimises the 70:20:10 principle in programmes and workshops by bringing real work into learning. We support participants and their line leaders in making new ways, the new norm by exploiting 'exposure and experience' and not by relying on programmes of 'education'.
Our initiatives model, develop and embed desired behaviour and new leadership practices in your organization, transforming the culture and the value which you deliver to stakeholders.
