Keeping Projects and Programs on Target

Keeping hundreds or thousands of initiatives on track is a monumental task, one that too few organizations around the world do well. Recent research reconfirms earlier findings that only thirty percent of projects deliver their intended benefits and meet the targets committed to during the program-planning stage.

For high-stakes transformations, this analysis underscores the importance of balancing high aspirations against a pragmatic understanding of what individuals and organizations can achieve. By keeping a few basic constraints in mind, leaders can mitigate some of the inevitable problems that arise when people are trying to achieve dramatic performance improvement in a very short time. By minimizing avoidable waste in the transformation process itself, the organization is much more likely to meet (or even exceed) its goals—and build a foundation for it to keep improving once the program is complete.

Strategy Development and Execution

We serve clients at every level of their organization, in whatever capacity we can be most useful, whether as a trusted advisor to top management or as a hands-on coach for front line employees. For every engagement, we assemble a team with the most appropriate experience and expertise. The ability to capture, organize, and extract insights from data has become requisite in every industry and function.

We offer a variety of support models to ensure you get exactly what you need, whether that's a series of workshops, a full-scale consulting project, or something in-between.
