Using proven management methods can dramatically improve organizational effectiveness, value creation for customers, growth rates and create more sustainable competitive advantage.

Organizational Development programs develop the systems, polices and procedures needed as a company grows. This is the skeleton of a company based on its industry, mission and values. Virtually all companies need several systems that are generic but will be customized to their needs too. 

Controlling a culture becomes exponentially more difficult as a company grows. Therefore, it is critical to start as early as possible. Larger organizations must have separate programs for each area or line of business.

  • Create a culture consistent with the company’s strategy, mission, value proposition and brand
  • Improve manager performance, which has high ROI
  • Leverage High-Performance Team (HPT) techniques in Product Development and Project Management
  • Improve planning and predictability in the business
  • Increase average tenure of the top people who want to grow professionally to move up and stay long-term
  • Reduce politics and infighting
  • Eliminate group think
  • Create a meritocracy where metrics and performance drives decisions
  • Constantly improve the work environment that will evolve with growth to attract top talent with a career path, not just a job
  • Create clear expectations for all and deliver projects on time more often
  • Help top employees grow professionally, so they stay long-term and attract other top people reducing turnover, training and recruiting costs
The Deming Wheel, or cycle of constant improvement.

Every business with at least three managers should begin a rudimentary Management Development Program (MDP). MDPs are focused on the individuals and their professional skills development.

Every company grows or dies based on its key employees and managers. Every success and failure begins with the staff.

A growth company, or any company that wants to be a market leader, must invest in developing both its managers and the organization’s infrastructure to support growth. Favorable market factors always change but a high-performance culture creates sustainable competitive advantage. As The Father of Management said: "Culture eats strategy for breakfast". Culture is like gravity, always working at low levels.

Market leaders become leaders by finding, keeping and growing the best people. Apple, Intel, Amazon and Facebook all have extensive OD and MD programs. They did not get there by accident. Why did Facebook replace Myspace? How did Apple recover from near bankruptcy to become the most valuable company in the world? Why did Intel dominate PC chips when the Motorola chips were far better than theirs in the early 1980s? The answer to all these questions is the same: “People and culture”.

An Integrated Approach Guarantees Success

Consulting & Design Training Coaching
Design of an individual plan for each manager requires vast experience. Only very experienced executives and consultants are capable of both identifying the needed skills and creating a program designed for each individual. Each manager needs fundamental skills training and a shared language with other managers. However, training alone almost never works. Training is just information, or a foundation for building skills. People must use these skills and force out older habits. Coaching handholds each key individual through the required habit changes to ensure success. Our coaches are all experienced managers and executives, not “Certified” in a four-week training program. They have 20,000+ hours of real-world experience.


 Consulting + Training + Coaching = Success
