An organization may look to develop a new business strategy for a variety of reasons, such as cost reduction, technology integration, changing customer demands, improving process efficiency, or meeting regulatory requirements. Regardless of the motivation, strategic planning is a critical area that shapes all aspects of the business and requires objective analysis and specialist expertise.
MENTOR’s team of strategy consultants can provide support in this area, namely in assessing current strategies and their limitations, and formulating new approaches that better serve the business through greater alignment with vision, mission, finances and resources. Our strategy planning services provide a comprehensive framework to assess, modify and implement strategies and track progress of implementation.
Strategy conception, execution and evaluation
We help organization leaders to step back from the daily work cycle and assess the critical factors for the business today and the necessary steps to ensure success in the long run.
With the right strategy developed, we then guide senior management on the best route in taking the plan from conception to implementation. We also help them in creating a work environment able to support and carry out the change process through employee training programs that develop the right mindset and skills (read more about employee training).
Aligning business functions & processes with strategy
A good plan is only ever as good as its implementation in real life. Similarly, a solid and well thought out corporate strategy can only deliver real impact when it is constantly and correctly applied to all aspects of the business. We help business leaders to ensure that their organizations remain aligned with business strategies and consistently achieve targets.
Through our corporate performance management (CPM) consulting, we guide our clients on creating various processes and systems that manage and monitor the performance of an organization. Performance measurement can be based on the Balanced Scorecard methodology, follow various management frameworks such as EFQM Excellence model or Six Sigma, and can be measured through achievement of Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) .
MENTOR’s performance specialists help organizations to implement CPM by putting in place the systems, processes and controls required to regularly measure and evaluate business activity. We ensure that the practice of continuous inspection on performance is embedded in the organization, to help achieve its plans and objectives.
Automating this process can make it significantly easier and more effective in the long run. MENTOR’s proprietary online corporate performance management app provides executive management with a quick and focused update on the key activities that reflect organizational performance. It enables them to oversee performance on strategic initiatives and projects, monitor activity and ensure alignment to strategy at all levels of the organization. Read more about our online CPM tool.
