Business

It’s all about having a vision, a plan to get there and the resources to make steady progress toward achieving that vision. Most companies have the first thing. Few achieve the other two.

Our consultants will dive into your business, develop a plan of action and can implement in order for you to achieve greatness.

Run Improve Grow®

From firefighting to BOLD business growth.

Run Improve Grow is a proven methodology designed to help organizations move from a place of struggle to a place of joy and engagement—from mediocrity to true excellence.

It’s based on the principle that your organization’s success is determined by where people spend their time. While your front line leaders are managing the daily RUN of the business, middle management should be focusing on proactive process IMPROVEments, freeing the executives to work on GROWth initiatives.

The implementation of Run Improve Grow results in organizations finally arriving at consistent, excellent performance, free of dramatic ups-and-downs.

Business Diagnostics

A comprehensive diagnosis of your key business challenges.

What’s standing between your current state and the bold vision you hope to achieve? Maybe you’ve figured out the big picture obstacles. Maybe you have concerns about specific issues. Maybe you’re struggling to diagnose the issue. If you’re like most businesses, the answer is probably “all of the above.”

During the study, our project managers immerse themselves into your business, your processes, and your teams. We interview your workforce and closely observe and evaluate your work processes and procedures. Then we compare the current state of your business against your vision, identifying the gaps between the two.

From professional development, to technology and systems needs, to process improvement requirements and cultural changes, the comprehensive study documents all of the improvements your business must make to close the gaps, enable greater efficiency and effectiveness, and ultimately achieve its growth goals.

Growth Roadmap

Close Gaps and Achieve Your Goals.

The Growth Roadmap shows you where your business needs to focus and how to maximize resources in order to achieve your strategic goals.

After carefully analyzing your business and identifying gaps between its current state and your corporate vision, our project managers work collaboratively with your team to devise and implement a phased plan for closing the gaps and achieving your goals. We prioritize challenges, recommend the most impactful sequence for tackling them, and outline—in detail—how to overcome each hurdle or challenge one at a time.

The Roadmap will evaluate areas such as:

Operations & Technology

  • Process simplification
  • Custom process design
  • Integrated IT & software solutions

  • Executive coaching
  • Interim leadership
  • Leadership development
  • Management capacity
  • Organizational design

Ripple Junction's Transformation

Ripple Junction started out as something to do in the summer, so the owner, Neil Hoynes, could pay his way to Grateful Dead concerts. Fast forward 30 years – Ripple started to grow quickly and realized they didn’t have the processes in place to support that growth.

“We had process improvement on our plan for 5 years – and never did it. It was important, but it wasn’t important. In 2016 it became urgent and important – literal tears at work. The workload was crushing,” explains Hoynes.

Listen in as the Ripple team tells their individual stories of growth and transformation. Hear how their ideas on culture, data, communication, and so much more needed to shift as they moved into the new era of growth.
