It includes the definition of the organization's mission, vision and objectives, developement of key policies and action plans, often in terms of projects and programs, which are designed to achieve the long-term objectives. 


Managers have to clearly define objectives and assess both the internal and external situation to formulate strategy, implement the strategy, evaluate the progress, and make adjustments necessary to stay on track. This ongoing process makes the company capable of dealing with competition by: understanding market participants better and filling the gaps. 


To understand the true importance of strategic management, managers need to know about the strategy models available and also build a knowledge that has been tried and tested in the last decades.

The way in which the strategy is implemented can have a significant impact on whether it will be successful or not. It consists of competitive moves and business approaches to produce successful performance, which depends on the company’s core competencies and core activity. The implementation of the strategy must be monitored and adjusted as needed.

The rate of change in today’s world is constantly increasing. Everything that exists is getting old, wearing out and should be replaced. Revolutionary technologies, consolidation, well-funded new competition, unpredictable customers, and a quickening in the pace of change hurled unfamiliar conditions at management. 


The content-based approach of change management points out that every transformation can be regarded as organisational change which occurs in the "essential characteristics" of the organisation, which are the followings:

  • operational processes of the organisation
  • technology of the organisation
  • specific outputs of the organisation
  • organisational structure
  • organisational culture
  • organisational behaviour
  • power relations of the organisation


On the other hand, managers must consider questions referring to the process of organisational changes, that examine how and how fast organisational changes occur, how guided they are, how far they follow the previous plan and to what degree the employees and other crucial stakeholders of the organisations are involved in the planning and realising process of changes. 


Managers have the responsibility to facilitate and enable change, and all that is implied within that statement, especially to understand the situation from an objective standpoint and then to help people understand reasons, aims, and ways of responding positively according to employees' own situations and capabilities. Increasingly the managers’ role is to interpret, communicate and enable. 


Leading successful change is a management skill that focuses on unlocking positive human potential. Successful change enables employees to experience appreciation, collaboration, vitality, and meaningfulness in their work. It focuses on creating abundance and human well-being and it fosters positive deviance.

With the proliferation of a wide variety of branded articles, consumers today are spoilt by choices. New branded articles are the lifeblood of all businesses. It is essential for an organisation to develop new or modify existing branded articles to meet changing consumer needs and competitors’ actions.

There are some people who believe that coaching is a process of transference whereby one person with prior knowledge or experience can impart wisdom to others with a goal to optimize performance. Others think that the coach’s role is to help others release untapped capabilities, to help the person be who they are and what they want to be. 


In coaching, managers pass along advice and information or set standards to help subordinates improve their work skills, thus it focuses on abilities. The skills of coaching apply to a broad array of activities, of course, such as motivating others, handling customer complaints, passing critical or negative information upward, handling conflicts between other parties, negotiating for a certain position, and so on.


However, it is almost universal managerial activity. Skillful coaching is especially important in rewarding positive performance and correcting problem behaviours and attitudes. It is more difficult to implement effectively when employees are not performing up to expectations, when their attitudes are negative, or when their personalities clash with others at the company.

Whenever managers have to help subordinates change their attitudes or behaviors, coaching is required. Managers have to criticize and correct subordinates, but in a way that facilitates positive work outcomes, positive feelings, and positive relationships.

Next to efficient structures and processes, it is essential to focus also what people think, feel and do in and around organizations. Managers should care about how the behavior of organizational members evolves and adapts, how employee behaviour is shaped by group dynamics and social interaction. Numerous circumstances have influence on managers when making a decision.


In the background one of the most significant one is the process how employees behave and act in an organization. The organizational culture is a generic term to describe the set of beliefs, norms, artifacts and values that represents the characteristics of an organization, and provides the context for behavior within it. It is a term used for analyzing complex organizations, with the emphasis revolving around the development of shared assumptions, meanings, beliefs and values, which shape and are reinforced by employees’ behavior at work.

To maximize organizational performance requires an organizational culture that inspires employees to learn, grow and give their very best. Optimal operation is affected by an organizational culture, leadership and management style that mirrors environmental changes, as well as employee motivation. In such a culture innovations requires new employee behaviours, that are indispensible in order for the innovation to take root.

Empowerment is based on a set of assumptions that are in contrast to those normally made by managers. It means providing freedom for people to do successfully what they want to do, rather than getting them to do what managers want them to do. Managers who empower people remove controls, constraints, and boundaries for them instead of motivating, directing, or stimulating their behaviour.


Rather than being a “push” strategy (traditional managerial style) in which managers induce employees to respond in desirable ways through incentives and influence techniques, empowerment is a “pull” strategy. The biggest difference between empowerment and traditional managerial styles is that the leader delegates decision-making power to his/her employees thereby making them more motivated and satisfied.


This essential method involves the ability to change others’ perceptions by democratic tools and form self-directed groups.

There is evidence that initiative and motivation are increased when people have a more positive attributional style. This influences self-belief, resilience when faced with setbacks, and the ability to visualize oneself overcoming problems. The implication is that empowerment suits some more than others, and should be positioned in the broader and wider context of an enabling work environment.


Key topics covered in our Empowerment courses are, as follows:

  • Releasing the Power within People

Effective negotiations require careful preparation, the choice of negotiation strategy appropriate to the situation, and the skillful use of power and influence to implement the chosen strategy. Without careful preparation, negotiators are likely to find themselves reacting to events rather than influencing them. In highly competitive situations, a well-prepared opponent can put an unprepared negotiator on the defensive. 


Negotiation is a process involving two or more people who start with apparently conflicting positions and attempt to come to an agreement by revising their original positions or by inventing new proposals that reconcile the interests underlying them. A good negiotatior have to listen assertively, learn as much as possible about who he or she is negotiating with, what they want, their strengths and weaknesses.


Being assertive means asking for what the parties want and refusing to take no for an answer.

Meetings, trainings, water cooler gossips: communication plays a major role in any organization. IT can help businesses succeed and keep employees happy. According to the communication experts roughly 75% of all managerial time is spent in verbal one-to-one exchange. But being an effective communicator takes real skill. 


In our multicultural and pluralistic business world, it is critically important that every manager and employee understand the importance of communications as a skill requirement for business success. A look at the demographic makeup of most companies confirms that inside, as well as outside the company walls, there are many different people representative of our multicultural society.


There are occasionally strong differences between groups, but as employees most are maintain some degree of loyalty to their employer as long as the employer is respectful of the differences.

The best way for an employer to avoid misunderstandings and potential disruptions to productivity is to recognize the need for clear, unambiguous communications. These skills have to be developed on an on-going basis.

Thirty-nine percent of the customer's selection of a supplier is based on the added value the salesperson brings to the relationship. Unfortunately, customers could not care less about salespeople with the “traditionally trained sales skills” and they very much do care about a salesperson's:

Few, if anybody at all will dispute that the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) developments have wide-reaching impacts on most parts of the company. However, it is much harder, if possible at all to predict what type changes we are going to see. In fact, the technological developments offer the potential for a number of different patterns of changes in organizations, both at a local, regional and international level.

Given the current business trends toward workforce diversity, globalization, and joint ventures, how managers from different organizations and cultures deal with each other, conflict is an increasingly important predictor of organizational success.  Conflict is the lifeblood of vibrant, progressive, stimulating organizations.

Risk is costly. This statement is absolutely agreed by businessmen and professionals. Minimizing the costs of risks to an optimum level unanimously means that we are increasing the value of a firm. In high-tech and financial services industries, risk analysis is becoming the rule rather than the exception.


Formal procedures are established as part of the initial definition of a project and continue through the life of the project. These analysis typically contain the identification of risk factors, the likelihood of their occurrence, the damage they will cause, and containment actions to reduce their likelihood or their potential damage. The cost of the containment program is compared with the expected loss as a basis for deciding which containment strategies to put in place.

A risk is some event that results in a change, either positive or negative, to the project. For the most part, risk is associated with loss, which can be estimated. In general, risk deals with entrepreneurial risk, where there is not only a probality of loss but also a possibility of gain.

For all of us nowadays – from the experienced marketing director delivering a strategy presentation to the board, to the fresh-faced sales agent nervously delivering his first pitch – presenting is now a kind of second trade, a skill to be called upon at short notice as though it came naturally. Often presentations can be quite boring and inefficient for the audience, especially if the topic is serious or very complex.


Whilst the presenter usually knows their subject, that is not the same as presenting with confidence and using excellent presentation skills. Presentation Techniques are skills used in every day’s work by all employees; they help and make the flow of information and communication more effective and faster.

Each emplyee has to manage projects or participate in project teams. The biggest challenge of a project manager is to coordinate different projects and heterogeneous project team sas well as recognizing the synergies (time and cost efficiency, appropriate human resource allocation, etc.).

Mergers, acquisitions, divestitures and other types of restructuring are major change events for any organization. Getting the maximum possible value from transactions means having the highest caliber strategic advice throughout the process, from evaluating targets and associated costs through to creating and implementing the processes and programs that knit the organizations together seamlessly.


A strategic approach to the mergers and acquisitions process is vital to ensure success. If missed, the costs are enormous to shareholders and other stakeholders of firms involved.


We advise our clients based on our below listed principles:

  • Acquisitions are growth strategies. Successful deals are parts of corporate strategies that are founded on firms' portfolio needs and competitive environments.
  • We focus on the few, big questions in due diligence that test the investment thesis.
  • We integrate the companies/business units only where it really matters, and significant synergies can be achieved.
  • We develop detailed contingency plans and scenarios.

Through our custom-tailored and flexible advisory approach our customers get what they need (and only what they need) from targeted strategies to discrete or comprehensive end-to-end solutions. We also work closely with in-house resources and other advisors based on local needs. To make the process as efficient as possible, we use a proven four-stage process:

  • Target evaluation
  • Due diligence
  • Integration planning
  • Implementation


For both buyers and sellers to manage the mergers and acquisitions process successfully, due diligence must be comprehensive enough to reveal all strengths and opportunities, as well as weaknesses and risks of a potential merger. We work with clients to develop a strategic approach and target profile; perform strategic acquisition planning and due diligence to assess fit on multiple levels; and perform operational and financial due diligence. Initiated by mergers and acquisitions or any other reasons, if not properly budgeted and resourced, a corporate restructuring program can grind to a halt. Furthermore, turning breakthrough ideas into action requires difficult decisions, which leadership teams may be unprepared to confront. To succeed, restructuring efforts must be targeted to only the most valuable strategies and tactics.

We link our restructuring programs to a client's strategy by applying a pragmatic, analytic, data-driven approach. And, we're collaborative, teaming with our clients at every step to help them implement their vision.

Dissatisfaction with performance management and performance measurement systems runs high. Many firms suspect, that they haven’t got it right. Managers don’t particularly look forward to the process, employees often dread it, and human resource departments spend a good part of their time hounding managers to carry out their performance management responsibilities. 


Performance management is an ongoing process of communication between a supervisor and an employee that occurs throughout the year, in support of accomplishing the strategic objectives of the organization. The communication process includes clarifying expectations, setting objectives, identifying goals, providing feedback, and evaluating results.

An effective performance management process sets the foundation for rewarding excellence.

Based on our experience in organizational and personal development strategies, we provide performance management consultancy services:

  • By linking individual employee work efforts and personal development needs with the organization’s mission and objectives.
  • By focusing attention on setting clear performance and development expectations (results, actions, behaviors).
  • Through the use of objectives, standards, performance dimensions, and other measures.
  • By defining job-mastery and career development goals as part of the process.
  • Through regular check-in discussions, which include status updates, coaching, and feedback.

Our experienced talent management consultants work with customers to uncover and exploit the strengths in current talent management processes, as well as to develop new methods for achieving superior results in training, development and retention of top talent. 


Based on organizational development needs and business strategies, we provide customers comprehensive competency maps, highlighting critical competencies for both organization as a whole and each department or organizational subunit. We design talent development training portfolios, once competency maps are known.

Furthermore, we also define talent management strategies and action plans that fit corporate career management approaches. As both technological solutions and training portfolios dynamically change across industries and areas of interests, we provide customers benchmarks regarding the most modern applications and talent drivers. 


Our talent management consultants are experts at helping customers to align the HR strategy with talent development plans and development processes that enhance employee productivity and performance and as a result, support key strategic objectives.
