Benefits To Organizational Leadership

Through the meticulous identification and laser focus on improving existing structural weaknesses across our 16 Project categories, your organization will realize stronger profits.  Working with an unbiased, 3rd party source, such as Organizational Growth Specialists, increases the probability of achieving your desired goals.

According to a recent Deloitte Study 59% of organizations are outsourcing these types of critical projects and 78% of those organizations are happy with their overall experience.  

Receiving Peace Of Mind, because you have the assurance critical projects are getting done regardless of your staff’s capacity or time constraints, is critical for every leader who is growth & competitiveness focused.

The identification and elimination of vulnerabilities helps your organization to drive new competitiveness and growth.   That’s the kind of Peace Of Mind every seasoned leader is after.

Your staff’s available capacity is already stretched to the limits.  The idea of adding a significant project to your daily plate can be overwhelming.

Receiving fractional assistance from professionals that specialize in these growth creating projects makes your organization better and stronger. Expense Assist multiplies your available capacity to help your Organization unleash new competitiveness and stronger profits.

The truth is, Unbiased Assessments, generated internally, are hard to come by.  Internally generated assessments are often skewed and a waste of time and dollars because of biases, protection of individual fiefdoms, job insecurities and office politics.

Your Enterprise requires an unbiased 3rd party to systematically analyze and diagnose your strengths and weaknesses, deliver an unbiased assessment and identify the ideal treatment for that segment of your organization.  The unbiased assessment data is the foundation to unlocking new growth potential.

According to a recent Gallop Survey, 63% of employees are not engaged at work and 87% lack motivation and are unhappy.  This negativity of low engaged and motivated employees causes a 33% decrease in operating income and an 11% decrease in earnings growth to the bottom line.

The truth is, managing people comes with hurdles and challenges. Individuals often get focused more on “I” rather than “we” and many are lacking enthusiasm and loyalty for your organization. Since culture is critical and determines the future of your Enterprise, something must be done to ensure growth & competitiveness increase.

Our tools & techniques uncover cracks in the culture’s armor and deliver corrective measures that help your staff acquire a sense of ownership and feel more valued which leads to improved engagement and motivation and this significantly propels your organization to improved competitiveness and stronger profits.

Sustainable Cost Reduction is challenging to achieve because of imperfect people, working through imperfect processes, with imperfect technology, resulting in the creation of waste and inefficiencies.

Driving new ways to eliminate waste, increase efficiencies, improve communication, grow employee accountability and enhance purchasing rationalization will create the sustainable cost reduction you desire and that leads to improved growth & competitiveness.

Most organizations either do not have the available capacity to deploy in-house experts to perform detailed analyses or the Enterprise is lacking experts in some key spend areas.

We bring a Category Expert Partner Network of over 40 Expense Categories, each with over 10,000 hours of expertise, to perform deep-dive analyses and uncover sustainable savings opportunities for your Organization.  Our focus is always on delivering unbiased expertise to promote stronger profits.

We continually innovate and develop tools to help identify and repair Enterprise vulnerabilities that are preventing optimum growth.  An example is our Spend Management Solutions Suite, which transforms A/P, Spend Management and other areas into profit centers.

Some of these tools are in the cloud and others are offline.  Each aid in our discovery process in order to help your Enterprise stay competitive and create the kind of growth you desire.
