Here's an executive summary to take with you into the boardroom.
Every day, you rely on powerful instruments to make sense of the world. Your mastery of markets, technology and finance helps you create opportunities and foster growth.
But culture, the force that binds it all together, remains managed by gut feelings and vague notions. Its impact on your organization is massive, but it's hard to grasp and difficult to measure.
We add culture to your set of systematic instruments. So you can protect it, leverage it, and keep it from becoming disruptive. Because when cultural conditions are bad, even excellent management achieves little. But when cultural conditions are good, excellence in management comes cheaply and naturally.
There is no "one cool method" that will make your company amazing. There will always be trouble, and you will still need to actually run it.
This will become much easier without the fog of uncertainty that surrounds "soft factors" and the way they impact your organization's performance.
In lifting this fog, we stick to being pragmatic, not pedantic: We make the cultural realities of your business visible in a way that makes your everyday life easier.
The result is a well-structured, evidence based instrument that explains a fundamental aspect of your organization, helping you plan your moves and create conditions that are beneficial to your intentions.
We work with global leaders of essential industries, as well as rapidly evolving market challengers. We know our way around trade associations and legislative bodies and have supported them in the past.
They all put their trust in us because our capabilities stem from real world experience, not from the extensive study of management literature. They put their trust in us because our methods are based on hard science. We don't rely on guru wisdom, even though quicker it is, easier, more seductive. They put their trust in us because we don't entangle them in a complex trap of follow-up projects, but empower them to manage on their own.
