You know your markets, products and customers. You know your strategies and goals, values and culture. But in times of growth or consolidation, mergers or regulation, market changes or technical innovation, the internal structures of a company may no longer fit.
Companies are like architectures – their structures consist of various components functioning for themselves. But their true value unfolds only when they are in perfect conjunction with the other elements. Efficiency, agility and power arise from the interplay of forces and from the smart handling of interaction between strategy, procedures, rules, organization, and IT.
Let’s say for example, that the legal implications of a new regulation need to be understood and then implemented into the business processes. Ideally, this change adds new quality also to established processes. These improvements can then be transferred throughout the organization resulting in better time-to-market. Another example: additional data is required for regulatory reporting. Why not turn this effort into added value for investors and customers as well?
Each company has its individual strengths. Working them out for each architectural component is at the core of the analysis phase. To evaluate the architecture vis-à-vis these strengths in combination with the needs for change is the aim of the conceptual phase. During the implementation phase, the relevant adjustments will be effectively realised.
What I am offering is to lead the re-designing of your company’s “interior architecture”, creating new options and agility for your business.
My consulting concept is based on the conjunction of the components strategy, procedures, rules, organization and IT. Changes are implemented in the phases of analysis, design, and implementation.
My approach is derived from experience with these practices of large consulting firms, filtered through practical leadership experience in the real world environment of a medium-sized and entrepreneurial-minded company. I’ve reduced them to the essentials, for one purpose only: the realization of your business objectives.
