Frequently Asked Questions

If your organization finds itself repeating similar mistakes, stalled without a clear sense of how to accomplish an objective, or seeing a retrenchment in key performance areas, an organizational strategy consultant can bring a fresh eye to your challenges.

Our organizational strategy experts combine data science, social science, and visual tools in a manner uniquely suited for large system leadership. Our team members blend training, communications, measurement, and facilitation experiences that allow measurable results to be achieved in faster time across diverse participants.

Our clients report that our Solution Area-based service model allows for the fluidity required to address these challenges as part of a holistic organizational solution.

The Clearing believes that starting strategy development by building a solution to the specific needs of the people facing the challenge is a best practice. The Clearing’s inter-solution begins by gathering upfront stakeholder perspectives, which is critical to how our experts facilitate the strategic planning process. Below is a brief overview of our three-pronged approach:

  • Align & Build: Assess gaps, innovate solutions, and build capacity
  • Communicate & Engage: Empower individuals to exercise initiative and cultivate ownership of CX
  • Strengthen & Repeat: Sharpen the capacity to sustain and identify how to improve effectiveness

Organizational capabilities must shift as customer and employee demand dictates. If you find your capabilities are hindering your organization’s ability to provide the workplace or customer experience needed for all parties to thrive, consider enlisting support to determine the path and execute the plan to get there.

A few examples of when strategic consulting services may be useful to your organization include when:

  • An organizational strategy must shift to meet changing customer demands and/or new mandates.
  • Staff cannot meet customer demand due to lack of engagement or alignment with organizational goals.
  • Siloed leaders don’t understand or aren’t aware of larger organizational goals — or how they can contribute to them.
  • Leadership skills gaps impact organizational performance.
