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.
Whether it’s a single department or an entire business, every company faces challenges at some level. Creating the right changes for results is a necessity in today’s business environment. Unfortunately, the hardest part isn't identifying the problems, or even identifying the solution. The hardest part is aligning your team around the priorities and executing the highest impact changes until results are locked in.
