Have you noticed when using a traditional SWOT or PEST analysis what you get? I guarantee you will find threats, problems and weaknesses. It’s useful to ensure everyone in the group is clear about them, it's relatively easy to find the problems. Through our approach we also apply Appreciative Inquiry processes to reconnect people to their organisations and their customers.
The Appreciative Inquiry process provides a framework for managing and reinforcing the interplay between group or business strengths, aspirations, opportunities and results. It’s all about building strategic capacity and performance improvement.
In Lean Thinking we aim for perfection and value add, flow and pull. In Six Sigma we reduce defects and variation aiming for better quality. We facilitate using an optimistic an realistic model of the future state. Our approach is balanced and geared toward what is most likely, what is most desirable and what is most achievable
When reviewing your future business directions, consider the most useful processes available. What you focus on expands. A business focus need not be on problems, competition and threats, move beyond traditional paradigms and move into the reality that business cycles have peaks and troughs, they are normal. Now is a good time to do some ground work, review, reprioritise, refocus and results will come. We are here to help you.
