Human judgment can be unreliable as these are all susceptible to errors. In Strategy Development,  organizations make a lot of strategic decisions.  Thesepic-1-Strategic-Decision-Making-200x300.jpeg?profile=RESIZE_710x strategic decisions share a common feature: they are evaluative judgments.

Business Process Reengineering (BPR) can be a great success but it can also be a great failure.pic1-Business-Process-Reengineering-Implementation-Guidelines-200x300.jpeg?profile=RESIZE_710x

Many large corporations depend on M&A for growth and executives can boost the value that deals create. But poorly executed M&Apic-2-Board-Excellence-MA-300x208.jpeg?profile=RESIZE_710x can saddle investors with weak returns on capital for details. In fact, the margin between success and failure is slim.

Many Boards are reluctant to cross the line between governance and management. The level of engagement is often outside the comfort zone for some executives and directors. As such, they miss opportunities to help senior executives win at M&A.

“The only thing that is constant is Change.” - Heraclituspic1-Leavitts-Diamond-300x194.jpeg?profile=RESIZE_710x

An epidemic of change is happening globally--reengineering, restructuring, and revamping! Workplaces seem to be launching one change initiative after another.  Digital Transformation is happening everywhere. Yet, the hard truth is that many change initiatives fail.

When things go wrong on a grand scale, often we direct our attention to the role of the Board. Debate exudes and often gets heated uppic-1-Long-term-Mindset-300x200.jpeg?profile=RESIZE_710x and intensifies. This often happens when the Board spends more time looking in the rearview mirror and not enough scanning the road ahead. When this happens, governance suffers.

Often, the Board of Directors spend a bulk of its time on quarterly reports, audit reviews, budgets, and compliance.  However, with the change in the business environment, there is a greate

Golf is a club-and-ball sport in which players use various clubs to hit balls into a series of holes on a course in as few strokes as 5-Leadership-Practices-of-CDR-300x298.jpg?profile=RESIZE_710xpossible.  The more we play golf, the more we realize that there is a negative correlation between how hard we swung and how far we hit the ball.  In golf, rarely is much accomplished from merely swinging hard. Sheer force does create action, but this is often negated by a lack of strategy. Life in golf, we need to learn to pull back a little, focus, and work on s

Forming a team takes time. Companies cannot expect a new team to perform well when it first comes together. Stage-of-Team-Development-pic1-300x195.jpg?profile=RESIZE_710xMembers often go through stages as they change from being a collection of strangers to a united group with common goals.
