What makes our Studio approach different?
Most organizations have tried numerous methods to improve organizational performance. Many of these efforts have resulted in mixed success. Few have been able to successfully make the changes necessary to achieve and sustain high performance. So what makes our learning and application lab approach to leadership and design different from those previous attempts?
Learn by Doing – Leaders become designers of the organizations they really want! They lead by example and "learn by doing" application activities and eventually become self-sufficient with the knowledge, skills, abilities, and tools to continue learning after the course.
Get the "DNA" right first! - Develop a solid foundation and framework for excellence that aligns stakeholders, strategy, systems, scorecard, and culture before [re]designing individual components and processes.
Systems Thinking – A deep understanding of the underlying systems, relationships, and leverage points is the foundation for good organization design that creates sustainable value for multiple stakeholders.
Creative and Custom – Our methods integrate design thinking with systems thinking to help you [re]imagine, [re] design, and [re]invent or "create custom" systems vs. simply "fixing" the old methods.
Convenient – We use asynchronous digital media and methods which are convenient, flexible "bite-size chunks" for your busy schedule.
Better Value – No travel is necessary; the virtual approach saves money with less stress on the natural environment.
Confidence – Our approaches are based on years of experience and award-winning research to inform the custom design of systems, strategies, performance metrics, and culture to achieve and sustain high performance across a comprehensive scorecard.
