HARNESSING system intelligence

A key factor for organizational transformation

Organizational transformation is a challenging process. Its success depends to a large extent on whether managers and employees rationally and emotionally understand the strategic goals and support the changes needed to achieve them. This applies across all industries, whether in the automotive industry, mechanical engineering, IT, finance and administration, the chemical industry, or even the energy sector. Within the framework of our intervention architecture, we integrate initiatives at the levels of strategy, organization, and personnel, thus enabling successful transformation in a strategic context:

Develop an attractive future vision

Developing a future vision

For orientation, an organization needs a meaningful and attractive vision of the future that employees know, understand, and live. The future vision comprises the future identity of the business policy and the associated future strategic positioning.

Market, customer, and environment analysis

Market, customer and environment analysis

How well do you really know your market and your customers? The acquisition of valid outside-in data by us on market developments, competitive strengths, customer expectations and potential, as well as relevant framework conditions, which are specifically incorporated into the process of strategy development or sharpening of the existing strategy, provide clarity and deliver added value.

Development and anchoring of the strategy map

Strategy Map

A strategy cannot be implemented if it is not understood. A strategy cannot be understood if it cannot be clearly described. The strategy map provides security and is a structured and comprehensive framework for strategy description and implementation.

Reflect on leadership and communication structure

Communication

Organizations thrive on decisions being made. Without communication, there are no decisions; without decisions, things grind to a halt. The introduction of suitable communication platforms and routines represents an essential success factor for arriving at viable decisions in strategy work. Here, the available information and impulses are discussed, reflected upon and differentiated in an adequate form – always with the thematically relevant players at the table.

Strategy implementation and effectiveness monitoring

Successful strategy implementation requires a clear distinction between the timely and formal implementation of strategic measures and the degree of target achievement. Effectiveness monitoring measures the achievement of objectives in the financial and customer perspective, while implementation monitoring measures the degree of implementation of strategic measures in the process and learning or development perspective.

Learning architectures to strengthen innovation

An interlocked organizational and personnel development enables organizations to face changes and the growing complexity with more ease. Learning architectures ensure that the necessary development of competencies on the part of employees is dovetailed with the implementation of appropriate organizational frameworks in order to be able to meet changing requirements.

Together with you, we create solutions that provide security for tomorrow and commitment for the future.

Develop strategy and organizational culture simultaneously

Enabling organizational transforamtion

The lived culture contributes significantly to the success of an organization. It is deeply rooted in the organization and has a decisive influence on the organizational identity as well as the overall coordination of behavior in an organization. Restructuring and strategy processes can therefore be implemented more effectively if they take organizational culture into account and incorporate it.

Organizational culture is rarely explicit: As a rule, people think they know roughly what their own culture looks like – but it often cannot be substantiated or clearly put into words. Its influence is also seldom recognized in everyday life and is underestimated in most cases.

Culture cannot be changed at the push of a button or by decree, but there are various levers that enable an implicit influence on the organizational culture. For example, even the selection of managers and levels involved in strategy development has a culture-producing effect. This decision represents one of many levers for culture development and has a significant influence on the acceptance of the strategic positioning within the organization.

For successful strategy implementation and organizational transformation, it is essential to make the strategic challenges a broadly discussed topic within the organization. In this way, it is possible to mobilize the existing system intelligence for strategy development – and to lay the foundation for successful strategy implementation.

As experienced systemic organizational consultants, we include reflection on the organizational culture as well as the leadership and communication structure in the development of a client-specific intervention architecture, thereby significantly increasing the probability of success of transformation processes in a strategic context.

Result:

  • Validated assessment of the current culture and a representative picture of expectations with regard to the elements of the target culture

Strategy development with the integration of system intelligence

We interlink internal and external knowledge, experience and assessments in customized process architectures so that new insights are generated. You obtain intelligent and new solutions and at the same time generate maximum commitment among all those involved as the basis for successful implementation.

Duration:
3 – 6 months

  • Target clarity for the organization in terms of strategic positioning
  • Concretization of target/actual differences as a benchmark for all employees and in the organization for the implementation process
