We envisage each organization as a mutually affective network – much like an experienced doctor will look at a patient as a whole, holistically, and not only from the perspective of his/her specialization. We believe that the passive pursuit of current trends or actions taken out of context causes more losses than gains.
Together with our client we build a modern organization based on three pillars:
- the proper strategy (the appropriate directions and goals for the organization),
- efficient process realization (the company`s current operations),
- efficient project execution (activities which change the organization).
Issues such as financial management, staff development or soft skills improvement, which bind the three pillars are introduced simultaneously but not until the basics have been put in order. The holistic perception of an organization as a coherent system makes the diagnosis of our client`s needs easier and enables us to accurately identify the best systemic solutions.
We also help leaders and boards to overcome developmental barriers in organizations, including:
- insufficient use of a company`s resources by employees
- low-level understanding of the transformation program by employees
- habits of thought and behaviour not compliant with the company`s needs
- quality below targeted norms and standards
- deficiency of innovation in working methods
- insufficient work efficiency
- insufficient motivation
We avoid the imposition of one particular solution upon clients. Instead of coercing change and fixing a company in a new work formula, we initiate processes of ongoing improvement whilst also developing competences needed by the organization to help meet the challenges they face.
What make us different from other consultancy firms:
- A participatory formula, i.e. our consultants collaborate with the client teams established to complete a particular task. Thus the solutions developed are later implemented in the organizations more quickly and efficiently than in the case of using a given expert formula.
- The managerial and training experience of our consultants (many of them are trainers on the MBA course) makes it easier to implement a change in workers’ attitudes during work sessions.
- Prompt reactions to clients’ needs.
