Balance & Harmony 360² Leadership Alignment
Why do some companies thrive and others barely survive?
Both have beautifully written mission statements, well-thought-out strategic plans, and spot on tactics and goals.
Does this sound familiar?
Mission Statements are posters in a hallway.
Strategic Plans are shelved as soon as they are finished.
Tactics are not shared with the organization.
There is no accountability for Goals.
The answer is Leadership Alignment & Continuous Improvement.
What if a head coach did not give his team the game plan? Did not teach them new techniques? Never set any goals for the team? This would not happen, right?
Companies are teams; it is commonplace that the leadership team does not share the plan with the team. The plan does not change their day to day activities - they do not live it. Most companies do not train their people adequately or prepare them for change.
Employees have no idea if they are doing their job well. There are no goals and they may not receive feedback on their performance.
Leadership Alignment and engagement enables teams of all types, at every level of the organization, to rapidly accelerate performance, deliver consistently higher business results, and work together. Our alignment process begins with the senior team and cascades through every level of the company.
Typical goals or key performance indicators are measured at every level in the company and include:
• On-time delivery
Employing a process that combines a unique blend of operational consulting and facilitation we work to create horizontal teams that are strategically and tactically in sync, are clear about goals and accountabilities, share common ground rules for resolving issues, and work together.
70% of Lean Transformations, Continuous Process Improvement Projects, and Change Management Implementations FAIL. People did not see the need for change. It has to be a change in CULTURE.
Identifying and implementing critical activities increases employees' understanding of priorities and the role they play in achieving them - including the front-line workers, supervisors, and executive team who are ready to bridge the gap between the current business reality and the company's desired future state.
This is a process not a program and it does not happen overnight. This process will pay for itself and has generated ROI and more.

Analyze, Implement, Sustain
Before a project, we conduct a boots-on-the-ground, detailed analysis of your operations which consists of observations, assessments, process mapping, and data analysis. We will outline and quantify specific opportunities, before defining potential solutions. It is a dynamic process where we review and discuss findings with the leadership each step of the way. At the end of the analysis, an improvement roadmap will be presented which provides the framework for the operational improvement program, in which we firmly establish the foundations for sustainability. Additionally, we will translate the identified potential into clear objectives supported by a detailed and compelling business case.
Right from day one, our approach engenders cooperation and your ownership of the results. The implementation phase will align people, processes, and strategies to the businesses’ goals and objectives. By working boots-on-the-ground, where the people and assets are deployed, we change behaviors by identifying root causes, implementing corrective actions, and laying the groundwork for sustainability by developing clear performance expectations. We develop, modify and/or redesign internal processes to improve functional effectiveness and ensure value is delivered to the business. We tailor our approach by producing client-specific solutions to address your organization’s challenges. We believe your knowledge of your business, combined with our experience in operational performance improvement will achieve significantly more in less time.
70% of performance improvement projects fail because the leaders do not take ownership of the continuous improvement process. In order for your people to embrace continuous improvement, it has to become embedded in the company’s culture. The process needs to be supported by the right behaviors, the right systems, and the right operational and measurement processes to maximize its value.
