Making Good Ideas and Sound Strategy Happen
An organization is unlikely to achieve sustainable growth if it fails to effectively convert good ideas into sound strategies, and successfully translate those strategies into workable and effective actions which are successfully executed. We ensure your organization is free from wasting resources in the development of strategies and plans that, never get implemented and executed.
Achieving Sustainable Competitive Advantage and Organization growth
Most firms are seeking much more than survival; the quest is for sustainable competitive advantage and growth. Even if a firm creates a competitive advantage through its core competencies and innovation strategies that advantage is frequently temporary and not sustainable. We enable organizations to develop the capacity to manage growth and day-to-day operations in order to create and deliver value to customers while meeting stakeholders' expectations.
Increasing Your Organization's Strengths
Develop a performance system model to capture your organization's strength defined at the enabling environment, organizational, and individual levels and based on organizations capacity development. Assess the gaps in organization capacity development core issues areas, and the levers to pull in capacity development response to enhance existing capacity and/or introduce new capacity to enable successful strategy implementation and execution to achieve its strategic objectives and mission. Institute capacity development response programs to enable sustainable organization growth.
Enable Effective Operations Management
Operations Management is strategically concerned structuring work, and with how to best enable and implement the organization's strategy. It involves decisions on deisgn and developmwnt of a tailored Operations System with its resulting competencies aligned with the competitive position the firm seeks over time. Tactically, Operations Management is concerned with utilizing the Operations System to provide the best match (fit) of supply with demand.
Create a simulation experiment to evaluate the effectiveness and efficiency of the tailored Operations System in creating and delivering value - products and services in the marketing mix - to meet customer demand, quality and timeliness while achieving the strategic objectives and meeting stakeholders' expectations.
Methods for Crafting Sound Strategies
Sound strategies are necessary for successful strategy implementation and execution. Crafting a sound strategy requires managers to identify problems of strategic relevance, and formulate appropriate strategies to solve. This is a difficult task which often requires managers to follow a problem formulation process akin to an "empirical discovery loop". Our model based methods enable managers in systematic approach to discovery and definition of problems to be solved; and analysis to inform their decisions on crafting sound strategy to solve those problems.
Intentions, Concerns & Decisions Models
Businesses typically choose a strategy that works towards the strategic direction they want to follow i.e., growth, maintaining the status quo, or exiting a business. Management’s indented strategy and plans can be modeled as intentional goal models describing the desired outputs and outcomes of the strategy. The goal model can be refined with action goals that operationalize the intentional model. Tactical goals and Operational goals that define tactical and operational plans respectively, and that implement the intended strategies are modeled in terms action goals with associated objectives that define indicators for monitoring and controls performance.
Assuring Successful Strategy Execution
Strategies are largely invisible to the organization itself and people that must intervene to implement and execute them, to have value to the organization. Effective execution assumes the existence of sound and successfully implemented strategy, and execution system and model. Execution involves decisions about structure, coordination, information sharing, incentives and controls within the organization context (power, culture, leadership, and ability to manage change). The execution system enables participation and communication up and down the organization as well as lateral flows of information and coordination across operating units. to ensure success.
