We support organisations and individuals
We are recognised in four areas in particular:
Supporting strategic reflections
We support strategic and governance processes, particularly in complex, interdisciplinary environments.
Together, we develop agile, learning approaches to achieve the desired organizational impact.
This is the core business of Strategos, which was born almost 25 years ago out of a desire to support organizations in their strategic thinking and the implementation of appropriate governance.
These may include:
- assess the organization’s internal structure and/or environment
- define a vision and a mission, in other words, to give meaning and purpose to our work
- make choices and identify how this vision can be achieved
- make things feasible by planning implementation
- finally implement the necessary corrective and improvement measures
For us, strategy is not theory: a strategy is only of value once it has been applied and put into action in the field. There’s no such thing as a standard strategy: it’s intimately linked to the internal and external specificities of the organization. There is no such thing as a sustainable strategy: it has to be seen as a continuous, learning cycle.
We bring our expertise to the whole process, and the tools needed to mobilize all the parties involved, with their knowledge and skills. These are essential not only to the development of the strategy, but also to its implementation.
Transforming organisations through collaborative and agile approaches
We help organizations realize their full potential, by strengthening the link between human and organizational needs.
Together, we reflect on needs and redefine services to operationalize the strategy or business model.
Particularly in this context, we favor participative decision-making, as it is conducive to successful implementation.
First, there’s what you want to do and achieve, as defined in a strategy or business model.
Then there’s how we want to do it, what skills and resources we need to mobilize, to provide what services.
And finally, there’s how to arrange the various components in a way that’s relevant, motivating, effective and efficient.
Our approach goes beyond the formal organization chart to understand how the organization really works on a day-to-day basis, to grasp the interactions, modes of communication and cross-functional processes, and thus to put in place an organization that is in line with both the organization’s values and its strategic orientations.
Together with management, executives and employees, we identify opportunities, chances and potential. Not forgetting the risks and difficulties. Together we discover new perspectives and enable agility.
Conducting evaluations of public policies and organisations
We carry out rigorous, participative and learning evaluations for the public sector, to highlight successes and imagine the future.
For you, we assess the impact and help you learn from the successes.
We favor a human-centered approach to create a favorable environment for future development.
For us, an assessment is anything but an audit.
Our aim is to take the time to reflect with the people involved on what worked well and why. Of course, we also look at whether the objectives have been achieved.
Based on the questions posed, we identify sources of information (documents, statistics, people). We then conduct interviews, focus groups, analysis and synthesis.
Now that we have a good understanding of the situation, we can help those involved to imagine the future. Then we’ll work out with them how to get there.
In our final report, we will link the evaluation questions to the conclusions and recommendations. We’ll also show separately the different points of view, those brought by the documents and data, the people consulted and also our own.
And the whole process is carried out in accordance with the principles of the Swiss Evaluation Society SEVAL , of which we are a member.
Developing team and leadership skills
We support collective and individual change processes using participative and certified approaches.
We provide coaching for managers, department heads and politicians, particularly in crisis and conflict situations.
We also offer individual and team supervision.
We are regular trainers in professional and university environments.
We work on the organization and its dynamics.
Everyone, every organization is different. That’s why we propose an approach that integrates the human and cultural dimension, with the aim of exploiting its potential.
We create the conditions for building the future together with management, executives and staff. We help to instill dynamism throughout the organization and stimulate creativity.
