Is Your Company a Connected Organization?

For 40 years, we've worked with client organizations - large and small, helping them achieve their goals. Our experience has given us a distinct point of view on what makes a transformation stick and what makes companies successful today.

They Matter

They have a clear, compelling and inspiring vision they stay true to even when it's hard.

What does it mean to matter?

We believe organizations with a clear and compelling vision enable their employees and customers to better understand the ‘why’ in what they do.

Customers, clients, partners and staff want to know that an organization has a purpose. An organization’s purpose should drive their decision making, their growth strategy and their ways of working. Organizations that matter are always connecting their work back to their broader vision.

How does this show up in our work?

We’ve been fortunate enough to work with some great organizations with extraordinary visions. The meaningful work our clients do inspires our own purpose-driven work.

In all our projects, we take time to ensure our client organization has connected their transformation – their desired Future State – back to their vision and that their internal and external stakeholders understand the ‘why’ behind the change.

How can we help your organization connect to your purpose or vision?

Here are a few services we offer to find and demonstrate what matters in your organization:

They Engage

Their teams are connected and empowered, and their leaders are accessible, transparent and authentic

What does it mean to engage?

Companies that thrive today focus on their people – employees, partners, customers – and find new ways to engage them in their vision. Whether it’s through the transparency of leadership or innovative collaboration tools and processes, organizations are finding new ways to connect to their stakeholders.

How does this show up in our work?

We take a human-centered approach to all our projects. That means engaging the people most impacted by organizational transformation from the start and ensuring they feel part of the design to help them adjust and adopt to ways of working. We believe bringing many voices to the table leads to innovation and successful transformation.

They Integrate

They understand how work gets done and they use technology, process and governance as tools to unlock people’s potential

What does it mean to integrate?

Connected organizations have end to end visibility across the organization. That means people can see how everything works. It means pushing decision making down, letting people lead from their seats. Companies that integrate have systems, processes, data and governance structures that truly enable people to work un-siloed.

How does this show up in our work?

Often our projects are centered around establishing the systems and process that enable organizations to integrate people and functions for successful transformation and growth. When we engage on an enterprise wide transformation, we often build in tools that help the core team collaborate across the organization. This might mean utilizing a technology tool like Workplace or building cross-functional project teams to bring more voices to the table.

How might we help your organization integrate?

Here are a few services we offer to support end-to-end visibility and integration in your organization:

They Evolve

They are flexible and view failures as learning opportunities, investing in continual learning to stay on the leading edge

What does it mean to evolve?

Successful organizations today are always changing – to stay innovative and relevant. Their people have competency in change, knowing it leads to growth and opportunity.

Connected organizations are nimble, looking for ways to do things better, supporting smart risk taking and accepting failure as a part of learning. Even while ahead, they anticipate market shifts and study innovators and
emerging trends.

How does this show up in our work?

We strive to build competency for change within organizations. We help companies build a framework for managing ongoing change, focused on the people most impacted. We use our human-centered approach to engage people at all levels to drive innovation from within.

Most importantly, we focus on ensuring all stakeholders are connected to the vision, remain engaged, and have tools and systems to integrate across the enterprise.
