One has to admit that organizations (corporates, institutions and public administrations) are nowadays facing new stakes and challenges : economic, strategic, financial, organizational, and operational, as well as technology-driven disruptions. They also have to deal wih societal responsibilities and commitments that the succesison of recent crises and regulations have contributed to inflate and put on the radar screen of top executives, shareholders, and an increasing number of stakeholders. (For more information on « Corporate Social Resposibility » and « shared value  », you may refer to the definition provided by the European Commission. Please click here).

Our approach, summarized hereunder by the « Value Expansion Framework », hinges on the following guiding principles :

  • A strategy, whatever its quality, can miss its stated objectives and even destroy value if not well executed
  • A good strategy execution should translate strategy into manageable operational activities, and infuse it across the organization
  • To generate greatest value, a strategy execution should well orchestrate and act on main internal and external levers: operational, human, organizational, technological ans societal
  • Economic value and societal value are not mutually exclusive; they can, and they should, feed into each other : to be shared, economic value must be created and the organization must be profitable. Conversely, our belief, based on an increasing number of real-life experiences, is that, by creating societal value, an organization prepares a favorable environment for an increased resilience and an enduring success
  • Apart from being an essential tool for strategic alignment, effective performance management is also crucial to improve the organization’s ability to execute and measure the value created, in favour of a sound corporate governance and a controlled communication with key stakeholders, whether internal or external
