LEADERSHIP

Forces such as globalization, new technology, and increasingly powerful human capital require more from today's firms and leaders. Few can survive in a reactive mode, lurching from crisis to crisis. More and more companies are seeking to become highly adaptive, balancing attention to today's performance with the creation of future options; and a very few are becoming creative shapers of their industries and destinies. A highly effective organization is the key to this journey, and perhaps the only sustainable source of advantage.

Our practice helps leaders speed their firms along this journey. We help clients in the three domains outlined below.

 

Motivation, Performance, and Talent
We have a wide range of diagnostic and intervention methods to help firms achieve new levels of performance, from strengthening managerial and executive talent to designing strategic incentives to creating processes to enhance group energy and alignment.

Institutional System Design
Our experience and research on governance and organization design enable us to help organizations create internal and external governance for competitive advantage. We have particular experience with the special problems of global and globalizing firms.

Corporate Transformation
The practice offers a range of interventions to help organisations accelerate and deepen transformation. These range from novel institutional arrangements to methods for increasing the change-readiness of individuals, groups, and entire firms.
