We cannot understand the nature of a business by analysis of its parts. Problems cannot be solved at the same level of awareness that created them - Albert Einstein. New problems require a new way of thinking.
In planning for the future, companies today can be sure of two things - change and uncertainty. Our mission is to help clients keep their footing in an ever-shifting landscape, not merely coping with uncertainty, but turning it to their advantage.
Our solutions embody a suite of powerful cutting edge analytical tools and methodologies that can position your organization to make and execute good strategies and decisions that bolster shareholder value.
In dealing with strategy development we often seek to find answers to questions such as: 1) Do issues among functional silos dominate your strategic discussions?, 2) Does your business have chronic problems that resist solutions?, 3) Does your enterprise routinely ignore things that cannot be easily measured?, 4) Do you know the balance of performance factors that will allow your business to flourish well into the 21st century? Do your employees know?, 5) Does your business focus excessively on a few financial "lagging" indicators that do not provide timely information for management?, 6) Are you swamped with an overwhelming amount of detailed data leading to informational ignorance?
Classical strategy approaches alone cannot adequately illuminate the complexities present in most businesses. We apply a combination of classical strategy approaches, systems thinking and organizational learning methodologies to provide a deeper understanding of the past, present and potential futures for strategic decision making.
