Strategic Change: Organizational change occurs when people commit to a new goal and modify their behavior accordingly. We integrate best practice with the lastest behavioral science to help companies bring their strategies to life and achieve lasting change.

 

Talent Management: The real difference between success and failure in a company is often the result of how well the organization brings out the great energy and commitment of its people. We work with you to select, onboard, engage, develop and deploy the right talent in the right roles.

We work with leaders to gain agreement on the organization’s purpose and then develop and align the components needed (e.g., structure, culture, decision rights) for success.

Optimizing Private Equity Investments: While PE firms always invest in strengthening the business strategy of their portfolio companies, too often they under-invest in talent charged with executing these strategies. As a result, execution is compromised, performance is impaired, and money is left on the table. Our experts assist with pre-and post-deal diligence on the executive team, providing deep and comprehensive assessment of the CEO and his or her team, as well as the needs of the organization to execute the value creation plan.

 

Private Equity Performing at Peak Capacity: We assist PE firms in creating their own high performance firm cultures that lead to sustainable success. Like many of your portfolio companies, success is largely dependent on your people. Pick the wrong investment opportunities or the wrong portfolio management team and you will have more losers than winners. You need the best talent to find the right opportunities, design and install the right strategies, pick the right management teams, and ensure successful execution.
