Our solutions - Capability identification and building
“The engine of value creation is a system of capabilities that together allow a company to compete in a differentiated way.”
The problem: Trying to excel at everything and ending up being great at nothing
Too many companies don’t identify the few cross-functional capabilities they need to excel at in order to deliver on their value proposition. Not being clear about those capabilities, functions often decide to pursue functional excellence in silos. They strive to be world-class at everything they do, often treating benchmarking as the path to success. The consequences: Their actions are disconnected from the business strategy, they spread their resources too thin, and they don’t excel at anything.
