The senior engineering leadership at a technology manufacturer was faced with a difficult challenge. Divergent customer needs, geographical dispersion, and lack of a common infrastructure made it increasingly difficult to deliver high quality products that met cost and schedule requirements.
Utilizing a structured, multi-day event approach, Global Aperture designed and led multiple workshops to promote team building and strategic integration to help meet the objectives of the organization. Significant pre-work, data collection, and analysis allowed the client to focus quickly the highest value initiatives. With our “quick start” planning technique, including an integrated communications approach, the team developed detailed plans to maintain momentum after the offsite event.
Following the offsite, the team launched a monthly cross-functional forum to further break down the silos, share issues and insights, and leverage their collective knowledge to solve problems. As a result, the team developed a stronger sense of vision and community and began to develop a longer-term succession planning approach that would enhance company technical excellence.
Strategic improvement is sometimes regarded as an added responsibility, something outside of the scope of one’s ‘day job’. But what happens when your team returns from its planning process? How can you maintain momentum and ensure that improvements are integrated into your team’s operating rhythm?
Global Aperture’s integration services ensure that the momentum gained in your planning and alignment efforts continues even amidst the ever-present pressure of competing priorities. These services help you stay focused and on track.
