“FOCUS is able to hone in on the most important strategic initiatives and gain a level of engagement and alignment across the organization. They deliver real results. I believe in the people. I believe in the product.”Craig Gilpin, CCO, North West
“ We believe in investing in our people and we have engaged several firms to help us do that. I must admit that none of them have had the positive impact that FOCUS has, in such a short period of time. FOCUS facilitated results are pragmatic and can  immediately put to work to increase productivity and quality as the team gets stronger. And they did that WITH our people who really liked the FOCUS approach. We will continue to work with FOCUS as we grow our organization”  Richard Cupido, President and Owner, Burlington Paving
“We lean on Richard Gerofsky, Partner at FOCUS to help develop our strategic roadmap. Richard’s sound counsel, useful guidance and effective facilitation enabled Mayhew to think strategically, keeping steadfastly committed to our corporate vision and strategic objectives.  Richard is a key asset around the Mayhew boardroom table, and considered an extension of our Executive team.” Marcia Mayhew, CEO, Mayhew
Good things last.  I was recently asked to speak in New York, to an international group of chief librarians from major urban centres from around the world. They share innovative efforts and the results annually. The core of my presentation was about  a strategic planning and alignment system that Fred and his team at FOCUS Management facilitated  at the Mississauga Library System, 15 years ago!  The process was robust, rigorous and collaborative in nature and Ahead…Mississauga Library System
“We have certainly come a long way in a short period of time.  Recently, we won an award for the best performing energy efficient homes in North America.  The Focus Management Team, Fred, Richard and Stephen, have become a part of the L!V Communities Team, working with us to create better communication, clarity and alignment.  Our team is now focussed on what really matters and that’s what generates results that our customers expect and deserve.”Anthony Martelli, Chief Operating Officer L!V Communities

Organization Alignment Training

It’s not enough to have a great strategic plan.

In fact, most strategic plans never get off the ground – even the great ones. For your strategic plan to succeed, every structure, process, system and person in your organization must support it. Everyone – from the CEO to the front line employee – must be passionate about the organization, confident in the direction and committed to the goals.

FOCUS Management training helps business leaders:

  • Develop the processes, steps and activities required to achieve strategic objectives
  • Identify the systems and applications required to support and enable the work, and
  • Ensure every strategic objective includes specific performance measures.

Performance measures tell you how well your strategy is working.

Good performance measures provide a way to:

  • Define how each objective will be measured (i.e. unit of measure, collection frequency, targets etc.)
  • Monitor the gap between actual and targeted performance
  • Determine organizational effectiveness and operational efficiency
  • Help employees focus their attention on doing the right work
  • Measure accomplishments, not just “work complete”
  • Communicate the strategy effectively

FOCUS Management training helps leaders identify the right structure, processes, systems and performance measures that take your plan from paper – to your people.
