COLLABORATION BEYOND SILOS
We're excited to be able to tell you about what we did for NCC, one of the leading construction and property development companies in the Nordic region. It started out with Microsoft reaching out to us and asking us to help a customer of theirs to drive productivity and to measure the strategy to become
one NCC. NCC, in turn, wanted to know more about ideas developing and problem solving within their organisation. We surveyed a little over 1000 employees about whom they were likely to approach for problem solving or to develop an idea. This resulted in an additional 850 people and over 5700 relations. The patterns that emerged and insights of their most valuable informal leaders and influencers, gave NCC a head start to adapt to new ways of working - and, to work like a network.
WE THINK BEYOND ORGANISATIONAL CHARTS
We are confident in the transition from command and control structures to collaborative models. Why?
Because the organisational chart is merely a simplification of how your organisation actually works!
We know that organisations are much more - the ties in your organisational chart is just the tip of the iceberg!
YOUR ORGANISATION IS NOT YOUR ORGANISATIONAL CHART
Your organisation is highly complex, which is why you should not make decisions based on the out-dated organisational chart.
There are people, friends, emotions and extremely important informal ties - without them your company would go out of business.
That's why your should start listening, and observe what your firm really is...
WE KNOW WHAT TO LOOK FOR IN YOUR COLLABORATIVE NETWORK
To run your organisation without knowing your collaborative network is really like blind-foldedly operating a boat on an open sea. Chances are that things will be just fine, and that you feel in control. Despite this, you know you will one day hit shore, no matter how good your other senses are.
Getting to know your collaborative networks will enable your vision and help you understand where to steer to next. Let us help you to find the 'needles' in your collaborative 'haystack', and show you what to do with them.
WE PROVIDE METRICS AND GIVE SUGGESTIONS THAT WILL HELP YOU REACH COLLABORATIVE EFFECTIVENESS AND YOUR BUSINESS GOALS
Your collaborative network data can be analysed in two layers that work best together: computed collaboration KPIs (ex. diversity, org. vulnerability e.t.c.) and deeper pattern analysis.
The KPIs are general collaboration metrics that can be benchmarked against other similar organisations, and deeper analyses are targeted towards your specific business goals.
We offer and recommend both, and will gladly help you conquer collaborative effectiveness and reach bold business goals.
We are management consultants that are experts within the domain of collaboration. Since 2010 we have helped large firms to achieve better financial results through collaborative effectiveness. We can deliver facts based insights about your organisation few other can, and to manage this we have teamed up with state-of-the-art suppliers of social networking solutions.
We live by our values: integrity, accountability and trust
We have a vision that firms will engage in the transition from command and control to collaborative models, and we will get them there
Our mission is to aid firms in becoming better collaborators
We Collaborate Too
We wouldn't be such collaboration experts if we did not collaborate, would we? These are some of the firms we collaborate with.
