Key decisions for you
How fast? How expensive? How effective?
Our answers: within weeks, for a reasonable fee, and very.
Strategia Analytics is a one-of-a-kind company that uses an unmatched approach to helping companies through transition and change. While we look forward to explaining the research, the in-market application of our approach proven with over 60 companies, and the level of human and behavioral insight that is behind the diagnostic—and actionable—results we provide our clients, we suggest you make a few decisions to see if we’re what you need.
Show you’re Very Serious About Fixing Things
If your Fortune 100 company is significantly off the rails, has limitless resources, an impatient Board to satisfy, and a need to prove to your shareholders that you’re Very Serious About Fixing Things, you may wish to consider partnering with one of the huge consulting companies.
These large organizations with armies of enthusiastic MBAs will produce a shiny binder of analysis and very general recommendations that will require a mail cart to carry into the board room, often six months to a year later. It’s all very impressive. They’ll also occupy your conference rooms for months, interrupt your work flow while your leaders teach them your business, and eventually send you an invoice akin to the GNP of a small country.
It may save your CEO’s career, unless of course, your company has taken a real turn for the worse while you waited months for this distracting and expensive process to complete. If so, we wish you well, but it’s not what we do.
Go for off-the-shelf
Alternatively, you may wish to consider using the skills of a semi-retired former HR professional turned consultant.
They may be wise in the ways of corporate problems and likely use the off the shelf assessment tools licensed from one of many vendors. There certainly are benefits to this approach. It’s a painless process, completed quickly and for a very reasonable price. The standard algorithms used to assess the respondents’ answers are basic and give typical performance review-type feedback. Frankly, we think the limitations are, well, significant. We suspect you already know how to learn this information through your existing internal management approaches.
Unless you simply have a manager who can’t seem to get along with staff or peers, your company’s challenges are likely to be more complex and require more insight on both the problems and the potential solutions fundamental to the core of your business strategy. In our experience, a handful of earnest interviews of key staff combined with the most basic of off the shelf assessment surveys won’t provide anywhere near enough objective data to lead you to changes that will make a long-term difference.
But if you need to deliver some hard management-style feedback to one of your subject matter experts, this option may be just what you need. Again, it’s not what we do.
