Develop Capacity. Increase Margins. Set Effective Strategy. Institute Disciplines. Maintain the Course. Refine the Vision.
Every organization, regardless of its wealth, struggles with its margins and available cash. Keeping one eye on the market and another on its peers, the institution may lose sight that the only competitor that can affect its fortune is within. While the entrepreneurship offers alternatives for the start-ups and for-profit corporations, colleges and universities are unable to move rapidly enough to seize short-term opportunities that other businesses can claim. Instead, the world of higher education is ripe for intrapreneurship, which involves a steady focus on value and deft alteration or elimination of everything that fails to provide value. Instead of dedication to doing things right, it requires a commitment to do the right things – not in the eyes of the provider but of the market.
Through tools from Lean Enterprise, system and process improvement, strategic planning and business modeling, an institution can teach itself not to the play the game better but play the game differently. Our consulting practice offers training, workshops, and services related to these game-changing, focusing practices that put your institution in the position to out-perform your peers and widen your margins.
