The Foundation for Success
The fundamental premise: performance depends on developing and harnessing both organizational and individual capabilities.
Alignment is Essential
For the overall business strategy to succeed, it is critical that the business, customer, organizational and knowledge strategies are fully aligned.
An essential component of the business strategy is the customer strategy, which is most effective when organizational leadership, culture, structure and incentives act harmoniously. In turn, these elements of the organizational strategy are inextricably connected to knowledge. Experience proves that knowledge strategy is successful when the accompanying strategies are well-articulated and fully owned across the organization. In fact, overcoming hurdles often requires moving deftly between strategies to guarantee shared vision, commitment, and desired results.
Agility = Competitive Advantage
Well-defined strategy implemented at each of these levels will enhance your organization’s agility and cohesiveness. When the flow of knowledge is unimpeded, you can harness your organization’s capability effectively and with ease across all segments of your business. Organizations that fail to put into place sufficient capability will find themselves losing ground, and ultimately will put their very existence at risk.
SaintOnge Alliance: An Integrated Approach
What distinguishes this firm from others is our ability to move seamlessly between strategic levels. To have the greatest possible strategic success, an organization must envisage, engage, enable, and enact. To envisage means having a well-articulated vision that is forward-looking, challenging and inspiring. Involving staff in the vision and strategy creates ownership, builds commitment, and transcends organizational boundaries to truly engage employees. Enabling the organization requires fully harnessing knowledge and capabilities to effectively unlock hidden potential. Finally, to enact the strategy, the organization must bring it to life in concrete and real terms, ultimately translating cohesive strategy into measurable results.
