Modern knowledge intensive work highlights the importance of organizational performance on individual, team and corporate levels. August Associates support their clients both in analyzing the bottle necks of performance and in transforming organizations towards higher performance. High performing organizations have not only a fit-for-purpose organizational design, but also well-tuned management processes which are aligned with the overall management model and culture. August was originally established as a consultancy to support companies to develop their management models to become more shareholder value driven. After two decades, high performing organization continues to be an even more important topic as all industries become more knowledge intensive.
The company, an aviation industry player, was having challenges in implementing new ways of working and the staff was feeling frustrated. The business area head, with August’s support, needed to better understand the performance drivers of the organization – putting focus especially on ‘soft’ elements.
