our approach

The particular expertise of Alliance is in guiding an organization through a rapid but systematic process of business performance and organizational transformation. We typically guide the Senior Executives, a broader Leadership Team, and focused Task Forces through this process and provide the following assistance:

Structuring the overall task by applying the methodology and analytical frameworks that have proven successful in many similar situations. This will increase the effectiveness and speed of the task force

Teaching the most relevant methods and concepts to the team members so that they will be able to perform the majority of the work and increase their understanding of the company’s strategy

Supporting the analysis in areas where outsiders can be more effective, especially in external assessments of customers and competition

Energizing and focusing the team process by facilitating an effective process, diffusing political tension, and creating enthusiasm through the experience of success

Cascading the strategy into action through a disciplined process that aligns every part of the organization towards specific goals and builds required new capabilities

our philosophy

Alliance brings a unique combination of analytical sophistication and people skills to the task. A client described Alliance as a "turbo charger and power steering" for his organization because of our ability to accelerate the resolution of complex strategy issues and to ease a change in strategic direction. The client benefits in several ways:

The Organization Learns from the Process:

Alliance forms joint project teams with the client and shares relevant concepts and techniques. The organization continues to improve the strategy after the consulting project is completed

The Strategy is Owned by the Organization:

Involvement throughout the process and attention to the beliefs and personalities of key parties ensure that the results are well understood and supported. Alliance has pioneered a process to build consensus in politically charged business situations

Action and Change Happen:

The strategy is linked to an assessment of the competencies and business processes of the organization and defines the skill-building and process changes required to succeed with the new strategy. The Alliance approach creates enthusiasm and commitment to action
