Top-performing organizations proactively survey their external and internal environment,
mold their strategy to capitalize on opportunities, and initiate change as
needed to execute their strategies. The Center for Executive Solutions is
there every step of the way, helping our clients to facilitate strategic
planning, assess organizational structures needed to attain strategic goals,
and design and implement programs to build alignment.
- Strategic Planning Facilitation - We work with senior management
to clarify organizational goals, vision, and mission. We demonstrate the value
of vision and mission statements and emphasize their importance in elucidating
and communicating business strategy. We help organizations identify strengths,
weaknesses, opportunities, and threats. We assess gaps between where an organization
is at present versus where it needs to be in the next five years. We work
with the organization to drive specific strategies to close these gaps.
- Aligning Strategy & Culture - Even the best business strategy will
only be as good as the organizational structure, talent, and resources available
to execute it. We help organizations assess their existing culture and build
internal structures that support its strategy, including developing coordinated
performance management, communication, and training programs.
- Acquisitions, Mergers, & Alliances - The potential benefits of acquiring,
merging, or partnering with another organization can be drastically undercut
by clashes in leadership styles and organizational cultures. We help executives
evaluate these risks and minimize potential problems by assessing competencies
and gaps in talent, fundamental disparities in organizational structures,
and any other potential barriers to success. We advise on the composition
of optimal teams, build processes to minimize and effectively address resistance
to change, and create an integrated structure and performance management program
that align with strategic objectives.
- Restructuring - If truly needed and successfully implemented, reorganization
can be a powerful driver of improved efficiency and effectiveness. We can
assist with organizational design as well as advising executives on how to
help employees emerge from painful transitions with an understanding of their
importance to the organization's future and a renewed commitment to their
role in achieving strategic goals. We assess individual and team strengths
and developmental needs relative to requirements of the new structure and
design developmental programs that facilitate enhanced productivity.
