Are your company management systems and business strategy working for or against you?

Every company has management systems. At 1-degree we believe that these systems are neither good nor bad. Systems are needed. Problems arise when they are inconsistent and/or have conflicting underlying principles. And even if a company has a great strategy, incredible leadership and a great culture these management systems can hamper or sabotage ultimate success.

Management systems include all the working methodologies that support the normal operation of the organization. For example:

  • Recruiting
  • High Potential Employee Identification
  • Performance Management Systems
  • Change Management
  • Succession Planning
  • Annual Strategy Planning exercises
  • Employee Recognition

How can you re-align your management systems to achieve organizational objectives?

At 1-degree, we:

  • Audit your common management practices and uncover the beliefs that are behind those practices/systems.
  • Get clear on the foundational principles that should underpin all systems going forward.  For example
  • Can people be trusted?
  • How are people motivated?
  • Do performance results trump cultural fit?
  • What is the reason you measure elements of performance in your company?
  • Build a plan with our clients that moves on the key elements that are getting in the way of strategy or the needed culture shift.
Two levels, one balanced on the other, to illustrate the need for alignment of business strategy and the systems in place to manage the business.
