Passionate about business innovation and leveraging technologies that assist in better decision making.
Executing innovation is accomplished when individuals with varied skill sets come together for the sole purpose of creating non-linear value. We team with our clients with a “company building” & “outside-in” focus across 8 major vectors representing key functional areas of the business.
Our proprietary 8-vector framework is applied to score & perform gaps analysis which is then used to key actions that align with the the joint 1000 day target roadmap. Periodic MIS assessments, along these 8-vectors, are done alongside comprehensive audits. The KPIs & assessment criteria are tailored from time to time, based on progress.
