Conscious Organic Growth System (COGS):
inspiration and innovation for outstanding business results
With a clear focus on tangible outcomes, Creative COGS defines and develops the core drivers of a brand and provides a framework for implementation. It stimulates changes that are sometimes challenging, often enjoyable, always honest and ultimately effective.
To understand the business as it currently stands, we conduct interviews with key personnel at all levels, focusing on structure, objectives, goals, passions, and obstacles to progress, as well as behaviours, culture, team dynamics, responsibilities, capabilities, degree of personal/professional satisfaction and more.
Together, we agree on the ideal evolution of the organization, exploring desired outcomes and how they will be delivered, and developing a new vision, mission and values that will support and reflect the true culture of the organization. An authentic and winning strategy is agreed with all stakeholders. Throughout this process, we keep an open mind to allow fresh ideas to flourish and guide us in new directions.
We brainstorm, hold workshops, train and mentor. We break down barriers, identify restrictive conditioning, have fun and discover creativity. We question everything---the products, working practices, procedures, environment, canteen food… We get comfortable with not being logical, observing and feeling, while letting go of control. We build individual and team awareness, healthy relationship dynamics and true empowerment, bringing it all into focus around a new, authentic, dynamic strategy.
We work with all the stakeholders to implement the strategy successfully. We work with individuals and teams to ensure that everything meshes together as the newly-energized organization emerges. We work closely with the management team to monitor progress, make adjustments and take part in innovative initiatives, as required. Once the agreed programme is completed and fully operational, we are available for refresher sessions, as needed.
This holistic, results-oriented approach is 80% practical application and processes and 20% research, discovery and reporting.
Our clients demand real change and lasting results---and we delight in exceeding their expectations.
