The CEO organizational road map starts with the DNA of the organization. We start by assessing your organization’s strength in each area of the road map. Then we focus improvement efforts on the weakest link in your organization’s DNA. Rather than having to be hyper vigilant in keeping all the plates spinning, you will create systems that keep giving while engaging and holding the workforce accountable.
The DNA of the organization informs both the right side of the road map (which is the “soft” side) and the left side of the model (which is the business/technical side). But most importantly the DNA insures that the technical side of the business is intimately engaged with the soft side of the business. Too many organizations separate the two sides resulting in disparate efforts that are difficult to sustain. Both strands come together in problem solving, because problem solving includes both the soft and the business/technical side and when the strands come together on a daily basis you create a problem solving, learning culture that gets results.
The other difference in the CEO road map as compared to what most organizations do is that we set up continuous improvement loops on both sides of the road map which do not just use rear view mirror metrics. Rather than have the organization drive you, by using real time metrics you will drive the effectiveness of the organization and feel much more proactive than reactive.
Sometimes there is a misconception that process improvement is about reducing or improving labor, but it is really about improving overhead. It is by combining the people side and the technical side that an organization can achieve quality results and longevity. The leadership systems that entwine the technical side and the people side are the leadership systems that harness the power of the workforce, engaging them and holding them accountable.

Ileana has been able to help us articulate our no blame culture, develop a Vision and the expectation and behaviors necessary to accomplish our vision. I have been very impressed with Ileana’s capability to put everyone at ease yet lead us to solutions that are totally our own. That is a very interesting part of the process, she does not tell you the answer she asks the right questions that allow you to provide the answer to the problem you did not think you could solve. I like this process because we accomplish a lot in a very short period of time.
Ileana is one of those unique individuals who can size up the varying needs of a group and help them find a path to consensus. Our coalition has benefitted from her talents and become more cohesive as a result.
Ileana helped us achieve both short- and long-term results with strategic planning and team building. She personalized the business tools for our organization and helped us see who we wanted to be. We are better able to find people with the right fit to build a cohesive team.
