How Can We Help?
Every business has problems but not every business leader can solve all of them. Often the most complex and cumbersome organisational problems arise from simple causes. Intelligence Partnership identifies those causes, the roots of the problems, and provides organic solutions from within the organisation. IP undertakes the identification, analysis and resolution of difficult business problems, especially those related to work systems, leadership styles, human resource management, and organisational cultures. The primary objective is to improve efficiency, enhance staff motivation, and increase profitability for the organisation.
What Is Our Primary Service?
The primary service offered is a cultural audit. This is a deep dive into the organisational culture and typically involves interviews with all key personnel, observations of operations, attendance at meetings, and examination of documents and other written materials. The methodology is mainly qualitative (interviews, focus groups) but may also include some quantitative research depending on the size of the organisation.
What Do We Specifically Focus On?
- Motivations and demotivations in employees
- Power blocs and pockets of resistance
- Barriers to efficiency and effectiveness
- Employee attitudes, expectations and subjectivities
- Communication quality, levels and barriers
- Key/Influential personalities
- Leadership styles
- Middle management styles
- Human Resource Management Issues
- Areas of toxicity
- Areas of positive energy
- Areas of cultural weakness
- Areas of cultural strength
- The dominant work culture
- The secondary work cultures
- Opportunities for growth both in the business and in the employees
Not only will Intelligence Partnerships illuminate and explain the inner workings and culture of the organisation to a business leader, it will advise on how to bring about positive change so as to increase motivation, efficiency, staff retention rates, and, ultimately, profitability. IP can provide personalised EQ and IQ mentoring and professional development for leaders and business owners, so enabling them to apply both emotionally positive and intellectually informed solutions in their leadership approach. IP provides the business leader with insights into the organisation which would otherwise remain hidden and unobserved. IP gives the business leader valuable knowledge of the organisational work culture (values, attitudes, practices) as experienced by employees on a daily basis. IP offers the business leader the most valuable tool to ensure success – knowledge of their business as understood and enacted by employees.
For your convenience, Intelligence Partnership offers a pilot cultural audit, usually lasting one to two days depending on the size of the organisation. This is priced at an introductory fee level and involves the full-time attendance of Ms Binh and Dr Stephen. At conclusion of this audit a verbal report and written audit results summary will be provided along with suggestions for further analysis possibly involving a deep-dive cultural audit. Final fee levels depend on the size and complexity of the organisation.
