We examine strategic pains such as conflicting priorities in a leadership team, under-investment in an area of your business, or inability to scale the business. Through the vision lens we explore opportunities such as entering a new market, buying or building a new organisational capability, or developing a strategic partnership.
People-related pains we commonly address include high employee turnover rates, inability to secure talent, and long ramp-up time for new staff. Developing leadership bench strength, investing in a structured learning program, and pivoting to a matrixed organisational structure are some vision-first examples Resonate gets involved in.
Execution pain frequently comes from strategic priorities not being executed, business units being out of sync, and employees lacking clear and realistic goals and expectations. We address these pains but also look at preventing execution issues by developing a RACI matrix, establishing a daily metrics framework, and building a Stop | Start | Continue framework for your organisation.
Cash pains have faced most businesses, from receivables not being paid on time, to lumpy cashflow where inflow doesn’t match spending, to lack of access to finance or other external capital. Resonate work with you proactively to refine your Sales vs Delivery vs Billing vs Payment cycle, create set plays to elongate cash runway, and where necessary, document a cash-raising protocol.
We find Knowledge related pains often remain dormant. For example – organisational IP residing with one or two people is not a problem until they both quit. Our vision lens guides you in establishing a formal knowledge transfer program, developing a learning repository, and building a KAIZEN mindset to increase knowledge building and sharing.
