Enterprise transformation

Business case

Working closely with the owner and the CEO of our client we helped them to define their growth ambition, vision, and supported them in developing their strategies accordingly. Together we defined further strategic areas of their development, like human strategies, sales efficiency, innovation, digitalization, improvement of certain support functions, and integrating their foreign subsidiaries into one global structure. This required serious changes in how the leadership works, consulting with the stakeholder on a daily basis, and we became an integral part of their organization. Our primary focus is to support them to handle this extremely complex transformation, also, to make it clear who they are, what values they have, and how they can effectively collaborate through role modelling those values. In terms of measures, the above will have an impact on the company’s operational income and margin percentage, but also on the overall revenue they earn. Human factors like the level of collaboration, overall satisfaction, quality level of the workforce, building communities, and their position within the ecosystem are also considered as a success criteria. This is a long-term alliance that is built on trust, respect and honesty.

We introduced the new model, invited the new members of the management team, coached them, helped them to understand the concept, and provided daily support to the CEO to manage the new setup properly. We contributed to change the characteristics of the management team through reinforcing concepts like inclusiveness, collaboration, trust and transparency initially. It was a very slow process adhering to the new structure, but as more and more members understood the concept and the potential, they started supporting the others to achieve full alignment. As the trust level improved, the level of collaboration reached higher and higher, resulting in a positive impact on organizational and operational efficiency, role modelling towards the workforce, launching and implementing large projects with improved success rates.

Business case

We won the assignment of managing an executive leadership level assessment and development center. These assessment and development solution are embedded into both the hiring and the internal progression or promotion processes. Beyond the standard features of this process we customized it in a way to make the role playing and simulation parts extremely relevant and valid. Preparing the observers, the executive leaders ready to run such scenarios, to handle almost real-life situations with the observed employees or candidates required certain interventions from our side. The whole exercise is run in the context of their defined leadership competency framework, and all dialogue fully resonates accordingly. The way any feedback is articulated is also critical. Irrespective whether it is an assessment or developmental feedback, all observation is communicated in an objective, constructive and positive manner. As the result, participants felt the attention, the developmental focus, the intention to provide professional support, resulting in improved commitment and engagement, also taking personal responsibility to address all developmental needs. Providing post-audit support was also a part of the deal, through conducting special programs such as the New Director Assimilation Program, or running follow-up sessions or coaching the respective audience.
