Leadership Development, Change Management, Innovation

Underlying Rath & Strong's approach to Business Transformation is the premise that the success of your effort depends on people – people to lead, organize, and manage the rollout, select the workstreams, assign resources, take on role of Workstream Leader, provide data, help engage the hearts and minds of the organization and implement the Transformation. Focusing on methods, tools, and cost savings is necessary for a successful rollout of Business Transformation. But, you will also need to get the commitment of a wide variety of "stakeholders," and you will need to anticipate and understand behavioral and culture issues to achieve high performance.

Effective Leadership Counsel and Roadmaps to Achieving Change
Our counsel to leaders is especially effective in helping executives and senior management spearhead Transformation within the relatively short, critical timeframe they have to achieve their objectives. Our Leadership Development, Innovation, and Change Management approaches tie specific action plans to business imperatives to gain long-lasting success.

Team and Personal Coaching Achieve Measurable Business Results
A central goal in our work is to transfer knowledge and skill to our clients so that the client organization becomes rapidly self-sufficient. We coach for action. And we develop the specific team leadership skills Workstream Leaders need to lead successful Business Transformation, Supply Chain, Lean, Agile Enterprise and Lean Six Sigma efforts. In addition to providing personal feedback and behavioral suggestions, we operationalize the changes to be made.

The last thing we want is to become another layer of management. Our role is to guide, coach, teach, and provide tools and disciplines — then phase out, leaving both much stronger individual performers and a much stronger organization.
