Company Overview

In a world changing faster by the day, an ability to understand the direction of change and adjust your path forward is essential to completing your journey and delivering maximum stakeholder value. However, a misstep can easily lead to getting caught up in the waves crashing around you. This is not a new concept. What is new is the criticality of properly balancing the competing factors in navigating those turbulent waters. The faster change arrives, the less forgiving it is of incorrect turns.

Public and private sector organizations
must both manage their internal response
to external change. However, standing
out from one’s peers requires more–it
requires CHANGE LEADERSHIP.
Observing the turbulent external
environment, predicting where change is
headed, and proactively maneuvering to
adapt ahead of the competition, is
becoming increasingly vital to success
and even survival.

This need is nowhere greater than in government today. While citizen demands are not abating,
budgets are more challenged than at anytime in our lifetimes. Agencies seeking to be recognized
for delivering value and successfully defend budget requests must be able envision the path ahead.
To accomplish this, an effective BALANCE of the COMPETING FACTORS
of performance, cost, and risk is required, along with an effective communication of that balance
with a business case that is strategically aligned with mission goals and objectives.

Why Cambio?

Cambio may not be a word with which you are familiar, but it is increasingly the secret to success in today’s turbulent world. Why? Because “Cambio” is Latin for “Change.” As leaders and organizations must face ever increasing rates of change, success in the past is no longer a guarantee of success in the future. The ability to achieve one’s mission and vision is fundamentally linked to the ability to adapt and change.

Change that delivers Value

Change leadership seeks to guide internal responses to external change in a manner that maximizes stakeholder value. This in turn requires the balancing of competing factors and stakeholder interests. Cambio has the hands-on experience in all of these key areas to guide a balanced approach to change that maximizes stakeholder value:

Business Value Reengineering

All organizations—whether for profit, not for profit, or public sector—seek to achieve some set of results valued by their stakeholders. The ability to deliver stakeholder value compared to alternative sources for the same outcomes, as well as the ability to deliver competitive return on investment for use of limited resources in providing alternative outcomes, is what ultimately determines the success of any organization.

 

Business value reengineering takes a broad view of the value-adding processes of the organization, seeks to identify the primary inhibitors to maximum value generation, and targets areas for generating improved organizational value that will offer the greatest return on investment.

 

The Cambio Consulting Group offers training and focused consulting support in any of the following areas, based on demonstrated thought leadership and many years of implementation experience.

strategy_icon Strategic Planning

A starting point for any organizational efforts to deliver stakeholder value is to set an appropriate direction for focusing energy and applying resources. This requires the alignment of the organization’s mission, the needs and desires of stakeholders, and the products and services provided to those customers/stakeholders.

Whatever strategic goals are established and whatever processes are set in place to achieve those goals, performance must be measured to both (1) evaluate progress along the road to achievement, as well as evaluating options in determining next steps. An ability to understand the benefits to be delivered by any business decision requires a performance management system to quantify those benefits and enable choices to be made among alternative courses of action.

cost_iconCost Management
Optimizing organizational value requires that business decisions be made on the basis of results to be provided, and costs of providing those results. This need for a constant tradeoff between results (i.e., performance) and costs means that performance management and cost management are intimately connected. However, far too few organizations truly understand the costs of developing and delivering products and services to their stakeholders. Effective cost…

risk_ico Risk Management

Performance/results and costs, which enabling cost-benefit analysis, are only one side of the Risk-Reward coin. Every business decision entails some level of risk, and future results and unintended consequences are never certain. As a result, the third element that should be included in ever business decision is risk. Some organizations may have well developed risk management practices within certain functional areas. However, few organizations…

org_ico Organizational Change Management

Failed efforts to improve organizations in some manner readily come to mind for almost everyone. Unfortunately, leaders and decision-makers assume a good idea will automatically translate into supportive workforce actions. Not only is this a flawed notion, but studies have reported that up to 75% of change initiatives fail to meet their stated objectives because required changes in individual and organizational behavior were not accounted for.

All of the above areas need to operate in coordination with the others. Governance by a board of directors or other executive decision-making body is critical in monitoring organizational progress and guiding changes in direction as appropriate. An understanding of the relevance and interplay of these areas is important for a board or executive body to balance competing considerations, and to make business decisions that…
