Consulting

Strategic development

The success of a business is based on its development through understanding and mastering its own specific criticality. The increasingly competitive and global scenario in which businesses must now operate requires being able to rely on a "SYSTEMIC APPROACH".
This approach, focusing on the critical elements as a whole, allows the possibility to influence them in an harmonious fashion in order to highlight, capture and develop a range of opportunities aimed at creating value and at achieving success for the company.
The strategy, therefore, as a response to complexity, is a must for every organization, and can be understood as a weapon to define and formalize a corporate project.

The BKI proposal focuses on the following areas:

  • Analysis of the Scale of Values
  • Vision
  • Mission
  • Historical framework of the company and strategic existing structure (As Is)
  • Group Structure
  • Laying out the strategic path to cover (To Be)

Talent development

The change from a de facto Taylorist structure to a company where, besides implementing the concepts of delegation of tasks and responsibilities, management autonomy, etc... the "Periphery of the Enterprise" is highlighted (i.e. the totality of the points of osmosis between inner and outer enterprise) requires the ability to attract and retain talented individuals. These individuals represent a Human Capital able to integrate present and future, know-how and innovation, not taking anything for granted within the business processes they are involved in, and instead challenging them applying de facto the key points of "Continuous Improvement."
Introducing systems to assess and evaluate talent within the organization provides a better prospective and, consequently, a portfolio with a solid foundation.
Executing with success the strategy of an organization means identifying the key competencies and aligning motivations and behaviors of individuals with the achievement of assigned objectives.

Process & Organization

"…The business process is a set of interrelated activities, performed within the company, which create value by transforming resources (input process) into a product (output process) for an entity inside or outside the company (customer). The process aims to achieve a business goal, normally determined in the planning phase.
Resources as well as product may be goods, services or information, or a combination thereof. Companies with a quality management system, according to a standard, shall be able to measure and monitor business processes must over time by using key performance indicators."
This definition works when introducing the concept of a process that is in constant mutation and adaptation in front of the demands of flexibility and the often unpredictable nature of the market.
This makes it necessary to give the company the continuous ability to innovate its processes and in general the tenets of the organization itself.
The Bridge Kennedy International proposal aims at a dynamic revision of processes with the help of the most modern organizational tools.
