STRATEGY and PLANNING
SYNOVAS Management Consulting leverages its combined 100+ years of C-Level experience to deliver strategic roadmaps, with a supporting portfolio of services, to private and public sector executives looking to transform their organizations.
At SYNOVAS, we believe that analysis forms the critical starting point of strategic thinking. Faced with challenges, our clients seek out our help to dissect those challenges into their fundamental parts. We work with our clients to help them understand the implications of each of those fundamental components, and then apply known techniques to reconstruct them in ways designed to maximize their organizational outcomes.
A Dependable Methodology
Our fail-safe methodology first seeks to localize the critical issue, problem, challenge or opportunity that your organization may face. We then work to divide the overall issue into two or more mutually exclusive and collectively exhaustive sub issues until the sub issues are individually manageable and are measurable.
First, we narrow down the critical issue by studying the observed phenomena (symptoms) closely, identifying and recording these observations alongside your leadership team and staff. We use a combination of various techniques including brainstorming sessions and surveys.
Next, we work together, organizing these observations into groups, looking for a common denominator.
Following this important step, we look again at each grouping as a unit and pose the question, “what critical issue does each unit present?” The answer must be well understood to deliver any real solution. This process enables our clients to think about the 10 types of innovation, how to abstract root causes, and how to bring critical opportunities to light, while minimizing the risk of overlooking important concerns.
Once we complete this abstraction process, we work with you to decide on the correct approach to finding a solution. This search for solutions can take many forms, but once we determine the solution in principle, then we are able to deliver your strategic Roadmap: integrative implementation programs and then compiling detailed action plans.
However, no solution, no matter how expertly it tackles the critical issue, is of the much use until it is executed, and optimized over time. We integrate existing initiatives, and provide a supporting portfolio of full services to assist you in implementation of the strategic roadmap.
Finally, we find that prior to seeking our help, many clients try to short-circuit the necessary steps between identifying critical issues (Observe) and creating a strategic roadmap (Plan) by skipping the intermediate steps: organizing for specific and real actions (Organize) and planning for operational improvement (Innovate). Attempting to translate an abstract plan into action in a single step is best left for Superman or Wonder Woman, not line management.
You will find yourself working in a true partnership that results in an incredible experience, and an end product that is better than you first imagined.
