We prepare for the meeting and guide you through a series of intake questions to establish mutual fit and interest. During this meeting, we use an inquiry-based approach to help you to identify your needs, establish an understanding of your preliminary goals, key issues and potential root causes, and screen your organization and potential engagement for mutual fit.
We initiate a second meeting with a Blue Monarch Management Consultant to further define your needs and work with you to develop the requirements for an engagement with us. During this meeting, we deepen our mutual understanding of your desired outcomes and benefits and start to explore possible pathways forward.
Our team meets independently to research and design an approach, identifies the talent needed to solve the engagement, and creates a high-level engagement plan for you to review.
Our primary focus is to help you solve problems, capture benefits, and to help you better
understand the best pathways to achieving your desired outcomes. We also look for strategies
and tactics that create new, value-generating options for you.
You might engage us to provide an objective and independent opinion – whether assessing the work of another consultant, conducting an organizational or project health check, or facilitating the development of a complex decision that requires you to move past your company’s own internal biases.
As experienced, strategic advisors, our Management Consultants guide change by engaging specialized resources to solve problems and move decisions and work forward. The simplicity of the approach is that it relentlessly focuses on achieving outcomes for our clients. Engagements often start with a Theory of Change model that aligns outcomes and impacts with the timed and sequenced decisions and actions a client needs to take. The Blue Monarch Management Consultant’s work shifts to development of critical decisions and implementation of plans, structures, systems, processes, and meetings to advance the work.
Clients often ask us to produce ‘things’ for them. For example, they might ask for a strategic plan or a new governance model. These tools are means to an end, and we focus on moving through a process to get to the end. If the journey requires a specific plan, analysis, facilitated session, or conflict resolution, these are deliverables that should be decided by the emergent needs established during the engagement – to always be moving the work towards outcomes and benefits. It means we deliver the right work at the right time, without unnecessary or low value work products.
