MANAC THE EXPERTS IN
ACCELERATED ORGANISATIONAL
DEVELOPMENT

WHAT STOPS YOUR ORGANIZATION,
FROM ACCELERATING?

Why do we fail to overcome the barriers that cause stagnation in our organizations?
Are the traditional methods associated with managing for results part of the problem?
By managing for results, leaders are losing the battle for inspiration und speed.
Managing for results underestimates the prowess of truly inspired people.
Managing for results diminishes your foresight capacity and puts you in a reactive mode.
Managing for results strips strategy work of its power to fully exploit your potential.

Barrage

At MANAC we designed a strategic architecture for senior leaders that offers an alternative perspective on strategic management, employee engagement, performance and innovation. The MANAC strategic intent architecture transforms strategy work into a barrier-breaking instrument and accelerates organizational development. We will work with you to implement a development journey that is grounded in the most-enduring findings of strategy research. The MANAC formula for accelerated organizational development integrates the three central mechanisms that enable companies to actively shape an attractive future.

MECHANISMS OF ACCELERATION

MANAC FORMULA FOR ACCELERATED ORGANIZATIONAL DEVELOPMENT

=
AGGRESSIVENESS OF STRATEGIC INTENT
x QUALITY OF EXECUTION
x INTENSITY OF MONITORING/LEARNING/ADJUSTING

1. Aggressiveness of strategic intent as a driver of creativity and innovation:
therefore the ability and willingness to generate a constant flow of new and useful ideas that strengthen an organization’s business today; and the motivation and bravery to boldly move into uncertain market spaces and exploit the opportunities of the future.

2. Quality and effort of execution:
where quality is defined as the ability of an organizational infrastructure to i) inspire; ii) provide direction that enables individuals to understand their contributions to a larger goal; and iii) allocate resources and personal freedom to allow employees to take responsibility, learn and develop.

3. Intensity and persistence of efforts towards monitoring, learning and adjusting:
therefore the ability to reflect on the evolution of external reality; learn from one’s decisions and actions and those of competitors; and adjust the course towards achieving and redefining an organization’s mission.
