Empower leadership coaching and development of talent against your strategy
Business needs are a constantly moving target. Therefore there's always a need to develop the talent that enables the desired future to come to fruition. Leadership coaching fills this void by providing correction and guidance to the business' most important asset: its people.
Provide strategy deployment process to keep employees aligned with leadership direction
Only when the strategy turns into action throughout the organization can you truly say it has been deployed. Impruver drives for action from every single employee from the CEO to the back office janitor toward the company's strategic direction.
In the best of cases, companies go through an annual strategy development and deployment process. Let’s be honest, some companies don’t even bother and some others just do it as a paper exercise. In CPG, a lot can change in a year. We’ve seen a trend of increasing mergers and acquisitions that dramatically alter the competitive landscape.
Impruver uses a breakthrough strategy deployment process that essentially allows for real-time responsivity throughout the company. Obviously, people need time to put action against each new strategy so leaders wouldn’t want to change directions too frequently. However, it’s an incredible advantage to be able to set or change a target condition at the top – and instantly and automatically cascade this change throughout the organization. Once realignment has been attained, leaders can use coaching to set the pace of change throughout the organization.
On paper, strategy may be updated annually for some companies, but in reality, leaders likely change direction a lot throughout the year, often times leaving the rest of the organization behind.
How do leaders ensure that the rest of the organization remains in alignment when direction does change? Well, in all actuality, they probably have no idea. Fortunately, Impruver incorporates a digital feedback mechanism that helps leaders to ensure that their team’s improvement agenda remains in alignment with their own.
Whenever the leader’s target condition changes, their team’s target conditions become out of alignment. This triggers the team to edit their targets, after which leaders need to digitally confirm that realignment has been achieved. This function repeats throughout the entire organization, driving real-time deployment and alignment.
The word Growth may have a different meaning depending on who you ask. We view growth as making progress against whatever’s most important for the company. Impruver’s Strategy Deployment process accelerates growth by engaging the entire company to drive improvement aligned with the company strategy. So whether your manufacturing company is looking to grow margins, increase market share, or end world hunger, Impruver enables the organizational leverage needed to harness collective effort, resulting in accelerated growth.
Coaches set the pace of growth by aligning with their teams on improvement activity and target completion dates; then teaching the learner effective approaches to deliver results.
In CPG, there’s a ton of power in getting to market first. For most successful products, competition can be pretty fierce and manufacturers need to be flexible to keep up with changing consumer tastes. Hence, flexibility and agility create incredible competitive advantages for the manufacturers that can harness this capability.
Impruver creates significantly greater flexibility by enabling more real-time changes in direction and quickly deploying the organization’s improvement engine through the system’s simple but revolutionary strategy deployment process.
Additionally, the system unlocks improvement capacity by simultaneously driving out losses from Value Stream activity, freeing up time and energy to focus on enabling the future.
Enable leaders to ensure effective identification and elimination of root cause issues
The better teams get at accurately identifying root causes, the less resources are consumed fighting with or trying to eliminate losses. Impruver helps in the following ways:
Allow leaders to better assess talent development needs
By actively maintaining a coaching dialogue, leaders can quickly gauge the level of problem-solving capabilities across their teams and establish an environment for accelerated learning. Leaders can pinpoint which specific aspects of resolving issues are areas for improvement within the learner and provide the tools, resources, or structure needed to close development gaps.
