Implementation action plans
This is an area that many external consultants find hard to manage. Why? Because they operate as an ‘external consultant’! They don’t spend the time nor get involved deeply enough to really understand the people and what happens inside the business.
Importantly, our approach goes well beyond standard business planning thinking. We also consider areas such as the learning and development plan for your team, knowledge management, risk analysis and more.
Devising a plan based on assuming all will proceed smoothly is easy. However in most cases implementation, even when well planned, is not always easy. It usually evolves over time as your team takes action, improves the operations of the business, solves problems and learns how to do things differently. This is all normal, it’s the Plan-Do-Check-Adapt cycle in action. That’s why clear guidance and regular management of the implementation process is essential.
Our key difference:
The focus of our work is on making things happen in your business, not just making a plan. As a result of this, we work very closely with you and your team to facilitate the process of change, understanding what drives your business from the inside, and staying with you over time to guide the implementation process and hold you and your team accountable for your commitments.
