Ineffective managers are never as obvious as you might hope. They are not “horrible bosses” or rude people, many ineffective managers try in earnest to lead their teams to greatness. The challenge is that most managers become managers - in the first place - by demonstrating functional proficiency. Most companies then assume that good producers make good managers while the reality is that management is a skill in its own right.
Herrmann’s Effective Manager Suite is designed for new and seasoned management professionals to become their best and build their best teams.
Large firms are not built to innovate. In fact, they are optimized against innovation and towards optimization of the processes that established their success in the first place. For firms focused on optimization, it is both a strength and a weakness to be constantly finding ways to produce a little bit more for a little bit less. However, markets shift and disruptors arise. In case of either, innovation is the only safeguard against a simply unpredictable future.
Herrmann’s Innovation Suite provides management professionals the applications they need to create autonomy for early stage innovation, test and refine production stage innovation, and empower management to encourage innovation within their teams.
Who doesn’t want scalable, short term growth?! The potential rewards of M&A are some of the many reasons why these corporate actions have remained so popular. In fact, the upside is so blindingly enticing that firms willfully ignore long verified trends showing that roughly 80% of M&A actions fail to add shareholder value within 2 years. Maybe you've got time to burn.
For everyone else, Herrmann’s Merger and Acquisition Suite provides management professionals the applications they need to address integration, turnover, and communication within their teams.
Trying to deliver breakthrough business results with a homogenous team is like rowing a boat with a single oar. In extensive studies and practice, we’ve proven this. Yet, the perception of Diversity and Inclusion initiatives as difficult to measure and lacking demonstrable business value persists. As such, D&I goes half-hearted and under funded, souring a firm's taste for relying on people of all backgrounds to help build the future.
Herrmann’s D&I Suite provides management professionals the applications they need to make the business case for diversity and deliver more value as a direct function of diverse teams, while deepening engagement for individual employees and extending tenure in a given role.
