CONSULTANCY
Organization Structure Consulting

Structuring organization at the early stages of the business is a key for success and a must for growing. However, the needed resources for setting up such structure is often not available to shareholders and management at this early stage. Structuring the business includes structuring of the resources, the business processes, departments, business unites, product lines,..etc.

 

Many organizations start the business at a small scale hoping to grow. This type of business does not require excellent structure and business plan. We have experienced lots of examples where business grow far above the shareholders expectations in very short period not allowing management to recoup with the change.

 

EMEA helps shareholders and management to set their goals, putting the right structure in place in achieve these goals and manage the business for success.

 

Strategic Planning Consulting

 

An organization with certain vision needs a roadmap as a guidance to achieve this vision.  Management shall take responsibility on their organization’s vision. Setting up a vision will allow the organization to cascade this vision to objectives and draw the right strategy to achieve these objectives and accordingly its vision. Finally, this will lead to the alignment of the vision and strategic direction throughout all levels of the organization.

 

Strategic Planning appraises the full potential of a business and explicitly links its objectives to the actions and resources required to achieve them. This is an essential and systematic process that generates answers to the most critical questions a management team has to deal with.

  • Establish supportive organizational structures, decision processes, information and control systems, and hiring and training systems

  • Allocate resources to develop critical capabilities

  • Plan for and respond to contingencies or environmental changes

  • Monitor performance

 

Strategic Planning processes are often implemented to achieve the following objectives:

  • Change the direction and improve the performance of a business

  • Encourage facts-based discussions on politically sensitive issues

The difference between a business plan and a feasibility study is frequently misunderstood, leading to confusion. The feasibility study is based on the investigation concept, addressing the question – “Is my initiative or plan a viable business venture?”. The business plan is based on the functional approach, outlining the necessary path and actions that can transform an idea into a real business. While the feasibility study focuses on the analysis of the optional alternatives for business success, and identifies the best options to choose from, the business plan outlines the development of only one scenario. In fact the feasibility study becomes the basis for the business plan, thus it is usually conducted before the business plan. In simpler words, feasibility studies answer the question “Will this work?”, and the business plan answers the question “How will this work?”.

 

EMEA is specialized in writing professional business plans. Our business plans are constructed as roadmaps, enabling businesses to follow the path to success.

Sometimes referred to as high performance consulting, is a subdiscipline of consulting that seeks to understand and develop a holistic strategy to change performance; the results typically include changes in measurement strategy, education, staffing, and toolkits. Its goals can be summarized in the slogan "work smarter, not harder".

 

EMEA brings its own frameworks to work with and guide their clients, in service of fulfilling on the clients exiting mandates.

 

Performance consulting can be divided into three sub-specialties:

  • Organizational development specialists help organizations improve the effectiveness of their staff by changing the psychodynamics of the organization.
  • Professional development specialists help organizations improve the effectiveness of their staff by providing technical and professional training.
  • Personal coaches help individuals be more effective in the personal or workplace lives. The profession draws its inspiration from sports coaching, psychotherapy, philosophical traditions, and religious traditions.

 

Our methods to improve performance is based on the fundamental proposition that the performance of an individual, group or organization is a correlate of the way the world in which, and on which, that entity is performing "occurs" for that entity. This approach often gets distilled into a more practical business focused translation such as when a vision is clear, effectively communicated and universally held, people naturally move into action. In the end it attempts to give actionable access to increasing performances in a reliable way.
