Developing and Sustaining Innovative Organizations by Instilling Team Power

When managing today's organizations, leadership and senior management have to contend with new technologies, rapidly transforming economic systems, markets undergoing metamorphosis, and a work force that is being rapidly exposed to a changing work culture and sense of values, In this environment, a dynamic leader should work with an organization that is intrinsically progressive and vibrant, adoptive and responsive, customer conscious and forward looking.

The Professionalization and Institutionalization Program (PIP) approach helps organizations that have a clear view of the future and a sense of purpose, to significantly improve on their implementation effectiveness.

Creating a "Kaizen Culture" Through "Six Sigma" Processes

Even when vision is clear, strategy well articulated and management inspired, organizations much too often fail to serve what they aspire to deliver; even when some are able to meet competitive standards of efficiency, quality and timeliness, they find it difficult to sustain their competitiveness long-term.

The Productivity Improvement and Quality Awareness (PIQA) module helps management create a company-wide culture which continually through formal and informal processes seek higher standards of efficiency, quality and timeliness, and for all interfaces within the company and with the outside world. Through direct problem solving experience with firms in Japan, U.S. and EC we have developed this module as a next generation concept of Total Quality Circle / Management, termed "Total Quality (quality if efficiency, quality of timeliness and quality of management thinking and development) Culture."

While vision provides the much needed stability for an organization, for its aspirations to take shape, a Strategic Management System (SMS) is necessary to enable the organization to think and act in a well orchestrated fashion, in concert with the changes in the environment and the long-term vision.

We use a three phase process to make strategic management a way of life in organizations. The process involves:

Like our vision development exercise, this process also requires extensive participation of senior management both in line and staff positions.

Enabling Leaders Inspire People Towards Their Vision

We help organization leaders shape their visions into tangible meanings through a series of customized management workshops. The Vision-Information-People (VIP) module is used to design specific change programs for the organization.

Through a four phase process the module is customized to client specific situations and applied to:

Clarify and legitimize the vision of the leadership group by taking into account emerging trends and the organization’s visible and hidden potentials

Develop a shared sense of commitment in the organization towards the vision through application of a creative mix of communication tools

Design strategic initiatives which will enable the organization link the current processes and activities with the leadership’s visionary dream

Implement the first stage change programs to create the initial momentum.

As our firm believes that vision of leadership is one of the essential requirements for an organization to succeed, our module requires top management to closely work with the engagement team. The modular exercises demand very high levels of intellectual, spiritual and physical energies of the management team. Accordingly we introduce the exercises in a very careful manner after extensive management discussions. In addition, we continually adjust the pace of our work, depending upon the progress made by the management team in articulating leadership’s vision, truly believing in it, and committing to the cause.
