What we find to be best practices forms the backbone of our work. It serves us well as guiding stars to generate more impact in operations and differentiate our work from the rest. The fundamentals we follow evolve over time but represent what actually works.
Your organization shall self-propel into the future
We believe that external people, like us, are an excellent tool to break up problems and relieve stress on senior managers. Most value creation occurs when we integrate with your organization to share your pains and gains. Combined with our servant leadership, it creates an excellent foundation to keep you and your team in operational control.
Our goal is to maximize the knowledge transfer to your organization and minimize our resources put to work. This approach allows us to fade out and let you successfully self-propel into the future.
Joint operations with small operations team
Guided by the notion that you must run your company with your own organization and that we are just a temporarily boost to sort out certain problems, we operate in small teams. Typically not more than 2-4 people, even in large operations.
It’s your decision how we appear in your organization. We can work both in the frontline or stealthily, leading or supporting. Giving us option to task your personnel keeps your organization on top and radically reduces the number of consultants needed.
Success for us
”The shortest possible time to make a significant operational effect that you can sustain”
We blend military and business
Our military legacy gives us valuable insight into what works when the resources are scarce, and the game is on.
We pick the best from military practice and tweak it to work in collaboration with all modern organizations and when we construct viable solutions.
It blends modern management and business principles with battlefield management and operations planning methodology.
Operational Art & Design principles
Because it’s the best-proven comprehensive approach to transition strategic objectives into an operational design that links and integrates tactical engagements, to achieve strategic aims with limited resources.
It brings excellent tools to create doable plans, designed for execution.
Concept of the Opportunity Space
The opportunity space clarifies what is possible to do. It’s the field of safe travel for managers and the core of our methodology.
For all decision makers it is essential to make sense of the situation, why this tool have been primed during decades of research, and supports the pinnacle of executive decisions.
Simple things work best, but it depends on the level of complexity an individual can process.
Why a solution to a problem might seem simple to some, it can always seem the opposite for someone else.
The grade of simplicity is therefore always up to the observer to decide and us to match.
Staff work routines
Military staff work routines effectively handle complex scenarios and advanced situation analysis.
The purpose is to support a leader with doable solutions that create impact based on precise conclusions and risk assessment.
The routines structure work in multiple layers of complexity with different timespans. It is ideal for effective teamwork in a dynamic environment.
The information is the nervous system in all military operations and has been for decades. The digitalization of forces began decades before the industry knew about it.
Military operations are impossible to conduct without well-established surveillance and communications.
Principles like the OODA-loop, DBA, and NCW or back to Sun Tzu all advocate the necessity of information to be successful.
Based on the notion of situation adaptation to lead people to do incredible things, leaders must manage the dynamics of navigating the field of safe travel into the unknown.
Battlefield management handles extreme situations where quick decisions with little information are required, to reach the strategic objectives – winning the war, not just the battle.
