Agility Beyond the Technical Team
Historically, scale created enough leverage to be a competitive advantage. Today, adaptivity and speed levels the playing field. To compete, organizations must become more agile, and agility needs to extend beyond the tech team. Our organizational consultants will help you move to a more agile organization by:
- Understanding how to increase customer-centricity across your company
- Empower individuals and teams to take more accountability for performance
- Manage without rigid hierarchy or complex matrices
Right People, Right Seats
One of the most common problems in running any organization is having the wrong people in the wrong seats. This can happen for a variety of reasons and complacency is destructive for both the individual and the organization. Our consultants will work with you to establish success criteria for key roles and take an empirical approach to evaluating your current team configuration.
Flow of Communication and Workloads
One of the hallmarks of a well running team is a state of flow. By this we mean conditions under which communications and workloads are distributed cleanly, work-in-progress is consistent, and cycle times are relatively predictable. This abstract state is achieved only by applying the correct processes to a given system. Our consultants will work with your team to understand the dynamics of your organization and domain and to create processes which allow you to scale while maintaining or increasing product output.
Growing Through Apprenticeship
One of the most difficult tasks in growing a productive creative team of researchers, designers, and engineers is taking on junior team members. But, growth at the bottom of the career ladder is essential for long-term organizational stability. Our experience in running and advising on apprenticeship programs will help your organization implement a program that is sustainable and produces quality long-term employees.
Expectations and Accountability
True accountability can only take place in an environment with clear expectations and empowered delegation, but this is not an easy climate for leaders to achieve. To reach a point where teams and individuals are truly accountable requires a high level of organizational and leadership self-reflection. Our consultants will act as a guide to help assess current status and uncover areas of improvement.
