WHO WE ARE
Cornerstones to building an Enduring Enterprise.
An enduring enterprise is one that by the nature of its design, operates to consistently deliver industry leading performance and has the resilience to evolve, adapt and grow as conditions change.
We have discovered that three interconnected disciplines, Systems Thinking, Transformational Leadership and Organizational Leverage form the foundation of any enduring enterprise.
Any mechanism or organization operates as a system of interconnected elements, each dependent on the other to achieve its overall purpose. With this holistic view, a system may be architected into a structure where all functional elements are presented in the context of and traceable to a high level purpose.
Unlike a mechanism, an organization is a living social system. Each component (person) has their own autonomy and purpose which may or may not be aligned with the organization’s purpose. The challenge then in designing an organization, is to apply systems thinking in a manner that takes into account the autonomy and needs of the individual as well as the needs of the organization.
Transformational Leadership conveys a purposeful vision and inspires action in pursuit of that vision. It requires a willingness to engage in and encourage the disruptive actions necessary to drive transformation, and the patience and fortitude to embrace new learnings that come about from those disruptions.
A transformational leader sees their organization as a system of interdependent processes and people, and that the most impactful improvements come about by addressing their interactions, rather than focusing on individual parts of the system.
Organizational leverage is the effective use of a company’s resources to maximize economic advantage, in pursuit of the business purpose or goals.
