Vanto group approach

OUR MANAGEMENT CONSULTING APPROACH

We are distinguished by our unique management consulting approach and by our successful 25+ year track record of helping our clients achieve breakthrough results.

Most executives relate to their organization as a combination of its products, services, processes, methods, and people. While all of those are critical aspects of an organization, we at Vanto Group have a different perspective, one that is uniquely powerful and required to deliver breakthrough results.

WE approach an organization as a linguistic system – as a network of conversations.

From this vantage point, “conversation” becomes the primary organizing principle of corporate leadership, strategy, implementation, and results. “Conversation” refers to any means of communication, from speaking and listening to writing and images.

Our methodology allows us, in a very short period of time, to transform an organization by transforming the conversations happening within it.

When we connect this approach with the technical expertise of our clients, it unlocks results far beyond the predictable.

ORGANIZATIONAL TRANSFORMATION METHODOLOGY

Our expertise in organizational transformation comes directly from decades of research and development and from work with some of the most successful organizations in the world.

Over time, we have leveraged our unique approach to develop a methodology that provides direct access to breakthroughs in every major area of business. It has been successfully applied to areas such as:

  • Growth and expansion
  • Mergers and acquisitions
  • Union-management relationships
  • Conflict resolution
  • Technology implementation
  • Organizational alignment
  • Operational efficiency
  • Environmental sustainability
  • Innovation and many others…

Fundamentally, the methodology is a systematic process of interacting and intervening with the Network of Conversations.

What’s important : it works.

This methodology has produced breakthrough results in hundreds of organizations in every type of circumstance. It has found its way into best-selling books, academic institutions, think tanks, the Harvard Business Review, the MIT Sloan Management Review, and into executive offices around the world.

Despite our past successes, we continue to push the limits of what it means to transform an organization. We are always hard at work at refining our methodology and process to produce greater results in even shorter periods of time.

Running a business is a complex matter and at the heart of any business is people. I have yet to see anything else that has such a positive impact on people’s ability to relate, communicate, and perform as Vanto Group has. Our experience resulted in the alignment of our people around a common vision for the future, along with a powerful set of commitments and accountabilities.”

Paul Fireman, Former Chairman & CEO, Reebok

The Vanto Group initiative is entirely different from other types of training programs. It enabled us to better deal with day-to-day challenges, become more productive and effective, and move our performance to a new level.”

Douglas Young, Director, Space Systems, Northrop Grumman Corporation

These results seemed impossible six years ago.
I can see new opportunities and pathways for action to achieve next phases of profitable and sustainable growth. I strongly recommend Vanto Group to other companies who are willing to confront the predictable future of their business and create a new, bold, desirable future together.”

Mike Hamra, CEO, Hamra Enterprises

Building a business-focused, value-based organization is one of the critical tasks facing any company with global aspiration… I was absolutely clear that Vanto Group was exactly the right group to help me work with a broad cross section of our work force to develop business-based values that everyone could passionately embrace.”

Brad Mills, Former CEO, Lonmin Platinum PLC

Vanto Group’s involvement has provided tremendous insights on making cross-functional teams work effectively as well as developing future leaders who could lead the company into the next decade.”

Amit Syngle, Chief Operating Officer, Asian Paints Limited

THE VANTO GROUP MANAGEMENT CONSULTING PROCESS

In our 25+ years of experience in management consulting, we’ve discovered that successful organizational transformation requires that our clients move through five stages—we call these stages The Vanto Group Process.

This process is the methodology-in-action. It can be applied to the entire organization, specific divisions or departments or to any critical issues or opportunities.

Each of these stages plays an important role in creating sustainable transformation and breakthrough results.

Foundation that creates high performance teams

ASSESS


the existing Network of Conversations

CLEAR


out the conversations that block new creation

High performance teams in action

CREATE


a new future and new ways of operating

ALIGN


your team and/or organization behind the new future

Implement


the specific projects and actions that realize the future

These four steps are ongoingly present and continuously elevated during implementation to ensure the future is fulfilled and the results are delivered.

When implementation is complete, it’s critical to maintain the conditions that were the source of the future, projects, and results. In other words, the new Network of Conversations created by this process must be nurtured. Over time, this kind of network naturally capitalizes on emergent opportunities, overcomes new challenges, and inspires the next generation of employees. It keeps the company at the forefront of the market.

Our clients have partnered with us to produce extraordinary results in a countless number of situations.
