Why Vision to Action?
Our approach is based on experience
We love great theory and best practices but our approach is anchored in our own experiences of dealing with the sorts of challenges our clients are grappling with and from knowing what generally works (or doesn’t).
We provide a conceptual perspective
We look at all the functions in the business and how they interact with each other as a system. This provides our clients with a conceptual and objective view of their organization and what their priorities need to be to grow the business.
Our focus is on the problem
We want to make sure our clients are solving the right problems so we spend more time asking questions and listening to our clients pain points. We’re looking for the inherent strengths we can leverage, the blindspots we need to make conscious and the limits to growth we need to overcome.
We don’t sell pre-packaged solutions looking for a problem, we keep digging till we figure out what the problem is and solve that.
We utilize a data driven approach
We believe it is better to be right in decisions than it is to be right in opinions. So we work with our clients to let the data make the decisions and we ask the right questions to reveal the reality of what’s happening inside the organization’s ecosystem.
Sometimes its ugly, sometimes its satisfying but its mostly validating. Our clients are generally familiar with the picture but it takes someone else to hold up the mirror to see it clearly.
We reduce the complexity
As organizations scale in size, the degree of complexity within their system grows exponentially. There will be more people to manage, more SKUs or customers, more handoffs, more…emails!
The “ready, fire, aim” approach doesn’t work with this sort of complexity, it has to be managed and the organization needs structure. We help clients to create simple business rules and processes that will reduce the complexity in day to day operations that cause bottlenecks or failures.
We focus on sustainable profitability
Short-term thinking is the bane of many organizations pursuing profit at all cost. This works sometimes for some organizations but as the saying states its a short-term strategy and shouldn’t be the way the business is run.
We help leaders build resiliency into their organizations’ revenue streams so they are less vulnerable to new competitors or economic downturns.
