Most organizations work hard at driving and managing change. They accomplish what they set out to do and their employees are engaged and happy with their jobs. Yet industry research indicates that only 20 percent of companies achieve that. AaronRichards helps clients improve financial performance and make their organizations better places to work by ensuring the entire organization system is aligned and set up to deliver on the company's objectives.
An effective organization can give companies the edge that sets them apart from the competition. The payoff can be significant: Our research has shown that high performers report total shareholder returns nearly six percentage points higher and their employees are far more likely to recommend the company as a place to work—a powerful indicator of engagement. The secret: decisions. The best performers make better decisions, make them more quickly and execute them more effectively. And they don't spend too much or too little effort in the process.
Our experts can help companies break down organizational barriers and address decision inefficiencies to get to high performance. Working jointly with our clients, we start with a focus on which decisions matter most to overall performance. Small, everyday decisions can matter as much as big strategic ones. We then build integrated organizational systems that are explicitly geared to support these key decisions. We go beyond the "hard" issues of structure, roles and processes to addresses the "soft" elements such as people, behaviors and culture.
Our ultimate objective is to embed new capabilities and repeatable processes so that people at all levels can decide and deliver, again and again.
