We know that organizational silos exist everywhere - and we know how to reduce and eliminate the performance barriers they create. We focus closely on understanding how value flows through an organization and the key interdependencies that enable value creation. Once we understand this, we roll up our sleeves and engage teams across the organization to both strengthen their internal/functional performance, as well as to enhance their ability to work effectively in a cross-functional, networked environment
WE OFFER INSIGHT INTO HOW YOUR ORGANIZATION REALLY WORKS
When our clients are deeply committed to building a high-performing cross-functional environment, we begin with illuminating how the organization works today. To do so, we leverage social network analysis - a methodology that serves as an organizational MRI, visually demonstrating the overall levels of trust, connectedness, and information sharing that occur across people and teams. These results are often startling, in that there are often significant departures between how the organizational chart looks, and how the organization actually works. This insight is essential to building a credible and effective change effort.
WE ACTIVATE HIGH PERFORMING, CROSS-FUNCTIONAL NETWORKS
The results we generate from the network analysis create not only a compelling understanding of the current state or your organization, they also enable us to identify and partner with your "super influencers" - those leaders that serve as the cultural pillars in your organization. Their out-sized cultural influence enables them to serve as powerful partners in re-architecting how people in your organization collaborate. We ask these "super-influencers" to partner with us in developing and implementing a practical plan to drive the types of changes necessary to enhance speed, trust, and alignment across your organization.
