Common Client Challenges

Growing PainsGrowth creates ‘good problems to have’.

For small businesses, this may mean establishing more formal processes, creating alignment between organizational goals and performance objectives, establishing HR policies and appraisals, and/or institutionalizing business development.

For larger businesses, this may mean developing strategies to scale existing work functions, considering changes to organizational structures, updating strategic plans, managing change for strategic initiatives, and/or creation of new programs and functions.

Workforce Challenges Recruiting and retaining top talent can be challenging for any organization.

Sometimes the challenges are clearly defined, while other challenges require root cause analysis. Our team is adept at identifying those root causes and defining strategies and solutions tailored and prioritized to create the greatest impact. We understand the full human capital life cycle and the trade-off decisions that facilitate optimizing return on investment (i.e., should you develop the employees you have or recruit new ones with the skills in high demand?).

Using Data to Inform Leadership Decision Making & Priorities

We believe data-driven decision making is a key element of successful workforce and organizational planning – this is a principle that underlies all our client engagements and deliverables. We understand that information informs but does not dictate decision-making; we expect that the best decisions are made when we equip decision-makers with advanced insights helping them understand the impact of on-going initiatives or challenges. We deliver tools and methodologies that offer increased access to insightful data for organizational leaders and project stakeholders, while presenting that information clearly and succinctly. At times, this will include long-term planning horizons and intricate analysis methodologies. At other times, this will take the form of a short-term solution or ad-hoc report to address an immediate, one-time need.

The expertise they brought ranged from strategic advisory to in-depth business analysis and technology skills.
