Solving the long-term questions your organization faces
Events designed by Vector Research + Development help organizations
face questions such as:
- Should we diversify or focus?
- What really is shareholder value?
- How do we make strategic alliances work?
- How to empower employees and teams?
- Planning for uncertainty using scenarios
- Revealing corporate core competencies
- How do we reposition our products?
Turning questions into strategies
Sometimes the output of these sessions is a new corporate
vision or mission for the organization. A vision statement,
for example, includes the mission (the reason the organization
exists), its strategy (the work it does), and its values (how
its people behave).
Whether it is improving your public speaking or clearing
away information bottlenecks, Vector helps you solve your
organization's communication problems
The Vector approach is not to use one method but an array
of options. Every organization needs a custom approach.
Vector Research + Development solved one organization’s
internal communications hurdles by helping the staff to present
one-minute role-play dramas depicting their communication
bottlenecks. For another client, every participant became
a seminar leader and presented their key skill to their colleagues.
For a client whose leaders were facing unruly meetings, Vector
designed a workshop on handling hecklers.
