CHANGE MANAGEMENT IN CORPORATE INSTITUTIONS, BUSINESS & DIGITAL STRATEGY
[BECAUSE] your business model is being disrupted.
“In preparing for battle I have always found that plans are useless, but planning is indispensable.” Dwight D. Eisenhower
New technologies and changing consumer habits are just two factors in the transformations that can cause disruption in your business model. A key to success is assessing where your business is on the change curve. All businesses must deal with markets that increasingly expect them to be brand-savvy and provide solutions and relationships with their employees and customers.
However, many companies have either resisted these imperatives or have dealt with them on a piecemeal implementation basis. The result is often a patchwork of “change islands” existing amid traditional processes, legacy systems, and corporate institutional cultures. True transformation requires a holistic approach to comprehensively understanding your unique situation and challenges to create an actionable and measurable forward-looking implementation process and team dynamics.

ENTERPRISE ARCHITECTURE, LEADERSHIP COACHING, BUSINESS & TECHNOLOGY ANALYSIS
[BECAUSE] the org chart - just isn’t working the way it used to.
“Change is done best – when they think it was their idea.”- PJS
The objective of business transformation is to assess the team or organization’s existing state of health and then to plan, communicate, and implement improvements and/or whole new approaches to optimize results.
Because their priority is to focus on the core business. Most businesses and their internal management teams are not able to bring together the time, focus and skill set to assess and implement effective transformation. Effective change requires focus, as well as a comprehensive understanding and deep experience within leadership, business, and communications.

[BECAUSE] team dynamics can use a tune up.
“True individuals are unique. Unique is uncommon. Uncommon can be threatening to common minds but uncommon, unique individuals are the only kind of people that can change the world.” - PJS
Each organization and the teams inside it are unique, and so the scope of transformation will be different for each company’s specific needs. Even as all people share a critical dependence on similar organic functions such as circulatory and nervous systems but every individual is unique – so it is with businesses and their underlying systems and team dynamics.
Workforce expectations today, and in the future, are changing. Success is truly tied to clarity, competency, and the shifting dynamics of decision authority and information flows.

BUSINESS STRATEGY, COMMERCIALIZATION, THOUGHT LEADERSHIP
[BECAUSE] you have assets that aren’t being leveraged fully.
“Inspiration exists, but it has to find us working.” – Pablo Picasso
Effective change and revenue innovation require the ability to transcend existing internal mindsets, organizational divisions, and sub-optimal thinking to see beyond perceived limitations and what constitutes a “product” vs an asset from which that your company can earn revenue.
Identifying assets that have revenue potential and bringing them to commercialization requires bringing several product development skills together. Often both internal and external.
