Value, Leadership and Talent Development
Many companies have trouble producing leadership talent. As a result, external hires for upper management have become common, not only can these be expensive, a culture of external hires rather than internal promotions can demoralize employees and drive talent away from the business.
The increasing money being paid to upper management shows that despite the added cost, quality and strategic leadership is invaluable to most firms. By basing internal promotions and leadership on value creation, you can help your bottom line and increase the talent pool available to you.
Developing talent can cost companies large amounts of money, and yet, leadership roles are still filled by outside hires. Despite initiating leadership programs that invest in employees throughout their entire time employment, companies still can’t develop the talent they want to.
Companies increasingly focus on helping their employees gain certifications, and while they can be important, real value is driven by knowledge which needs to be emphasized to new employees. Broken talent management programs and uninterested upper management and non-coordination of business needs and talents continue to deter organic growth in companies.
Maintaining growth for any business is important, the key to doing that is making sure that leadership is invested, above all, in value creation. Emphasizing value creation as a driver of leadership decisions is essential to the talent development process. To achieve stable growth, leadership needs to incorporate value creation into its strategic process and talent development, without doing so, any growth will be unsustainable.
The Appnovation approach recognizes that any value creation is magnified and enhanced by strong leadership capabilities with a focus on integrated leadership/ Our experience shows us that this enables a company to sustain an ongoing advantage by aligning leadership, talent systems, and processes, while also results for further improvement.
Appnovation’s approach builds capabilities, while driving value through a three-step approach, answering various and important questions:
- Do I have the quality team of talent needed to drive my strategy to success?
- Does my current team include the best people in the right roles?
- What capabilities, strengths, characteristics are needed to lead my organization?
- How do we develop our leadership team as individuals while being part of a performing team?
- How do we embed best-in-class talent management systems to support our strategy?
- How do we know if our efforts and investments are effective?
Organizations are becoming lean. As the world moves toward greater automation, change is going to happen faster than it ever has. To be able to adapt to change has now become a prerequisite for any business looking to grow. An agile business is able to adapt and benefit from change quicker than their rivals. Transforming into a lean organization is now an advantage that companies can possibly have.
The process to transform a company into a lean organization involves multiple different steps which include:
- Improvement workshops to teach how to keep an eye out for possibility to decrease gaps
- Operational simulations to embed lean capabilities and resources and introduce important functionality
- Training people day-to-day for the new operational structure
- Best Practices implementation
- Creating change management protocols to help create lasting agile environments
The goal of having a lean environment is to be able to adapt to change without undergoing disruptions. Along with making sure all of your current business engagements are taken into account, we will make sure that all future possible business changes are accounted for. Appnovation will also suggest business platforms to make change easier to manage in your business in the future. Our goal is to make sure that your organization has a continued advantage of being able to adapt quickly by being lean.
Improve the Way your Teams Work
It’s unlikely that any company has a skill set broad enough to be able to devise strategies to deliver long term rapid growth. Often, this is because there is disconnect between the companies organizational structure and its strategic thinking. Strategic thinking is often centralized and controlled by a handful of people which can create unrealistic assumptions which translate to poor business decisions.
Employees often find themselves uninterested and uninvested in the strategic direction of the company and hence are more likely to underperform and be apathetic to the companies success. By involving them in the companies thinking and direction, you can be assured to get the most of your resources and fulfill your strategy to its highest potential. the Many companies—even high performers—don’t have all the broad-based strategy skills they need to generate sustained, profitable growth.
In order to do this, companies need to empower and build capabilities in their employees. Strategic decisions need to be driven from the entire organization. Companies need to be able to adapt to quick changes in the business environment, be innovative and be able to understand their resources as well as possible.
By combining these facets of business and organization, any company can assure itself continuous, steady and predictable growth.
Appnovation aims to make sure that you and your employees are empowered with these capabilities. By making a lean culture, you can ensure that the talent that you add will be able to adopt lean methodology easily. The process of developing strategy in a lean organization changes from an independent centralized activity to one where everyone contributes.
