Fast track the success of your strategic initiatives through aligned thinking and disciplined action
Aligned thinking is critical to business success. Especially when it comes to executive and leadership teams who are responsible for new strategies, priorities, policies, and processes. Our Executive Goal Alignment Process (GAP) brings together the expert facilitation skills of our Thinking Engineers with the added boost of Augmented Intelligent software to align your team to create fully endorsed goals, metrics and plans.
Align the thinking of your leadership, executive and management teams on an agreed topic ranging from strategy, to mergers, through to business priorities
Executive teams share 4x the opinions on a topic through this anonymous approach (compared to traditional meetings) leading to richer, more valuable and often unheard possibilities being shared
A personalised consulting approach from our specialist Thinking Engineers combining Go M.A.D.® Thinking principles with the power of Augmented Intelligent software to produce plans quicker
Our Executive Goal Alignment Process includes the following stages
1. Gather opinions
The group anonymously share, learn and rate their level of agreement on each other’s opinions around their chosen topic through a 3-step virtual dialogue.
2. Check team alignment
Our Augmented Intelligent software calculates the level of alignment amongst the group across various themes related to the topic and pinpoints the key areas of misalignment where further discussion needs to take place.
3. Build agreed strategic plan
Our specialists facilitate the group to share the results, increase alignment levels and produce an agreed case for action, an agreed set of defined goals for the topic and a robust roadmap of coordinated action for the team.
This unique approach combines the Go M.A.D.® Thinking key principles of ‘involving others’ to ‘define goals’ and collaborate to generate ‘possibilities and priorities’ with a very clever Augmented Intelligent set of algorithms to cut out unnecessary noise and promote more purposeful and productive group conversations. The approach will spark numerous Light Bulb Moments but will also tap into the answers that already lie within your team. The use of smart technology and remote facilitation brings a team together quickly to ensure fast solutions are agreed upon and robust roadmaps are produced for implementation.
Our Executive GAP process combines concepts from Harvard academics Professor Thomas Schelling (Game Theory), Professor Chris Argyris (Action Science) through a partnership with SchellingPoint who have applied research into collaboration dynamics. The Augmented Intelligent software which supports the process, which we fondly refer to as Joe, is proven to make intelligent observations, analyse vast quantities of data and reduce the time needed to formulate action plans.
