Corporate & Government

The Challenge

The challenges of modern life are not only increasing but they are changing more quickly. That means executives and managers at every level have to make more decisions – on choices, priorities, and plans – more frequently, often more quickly, and usually with less-than-complete knowledge. With a large organisation you can add the fact that divisions in responsibility between different departments means everyone may have a different view of the truth (the ‘Blind men and the Elephant’ problem).

Our Approach

Our approach involves developing a visual representation of the organisation, business landscape or problem-space, based on research. We then conduct small-group interviews with stakeholders where, using the visual representation, we draw out and capture their experiences as a group. From this we can then apply a range of bespoke and standard analytical techniques including dynamic systems-models, network analysis, or matrix analysis (e.g. the Boston or GE-McKinsey matrices) to model and present the costs and benefits of different options.

Using this approach, we have helped clients in a range of sectors to explore complex problems, leverage the knowledge and experience of their stakeholders, and discover shared-decisions to address them.
