According to a Project Management Institute 2014 report, 61 percent of organizational leaders acknowledge that their firms often struggle to bridge the gap between strategy formulation and its day-to-day implementation. 9% rate themselves as achieving excellent implementation of their strategies. “This poor performance,” PMI notes, “results in organizations losing $109 million for every $1 billion invested in projects and programs.” And fewer will in handle the added complexity in the coming years as the pace of change increases.

The good news that came out of the result was that “Organizations that focus on strategic practices surrounding people, processes and outcomes—and that closely align their projects to the strategy of the organization—successfully complete more strategic initiatives than those that don’t.”

Global Development helps ensure your organization will be one of the few that won’t have to look back and wonder “what went wrong?” When we engage with your organization—your people, processes and outcomes—so your end result will be complete, successful, sustained change.

Global Development is focused helping organizations implement large-scale strategies — transitioning in sync with the pace of market changes. Our holistic approach leverages the personal involvement of Dr. Karen Judd Smith and the knowledge of key change leaders to transfer leadership competencies across all levels of the organization.

How do we do it? In the time We mobilize your organization as an army of people aligned with your strategy. With your entire organization on board, we can accelerate the speed of transition to meet the challenge, whether to capitalize on an opportunity or avoid a deadly hazard. We apply a time tested, award winning process that ensures results are sustained, so your progress isn’t lost to old, familiar patterns. It creates a “want to” atmosphere where people will shift their own attitudes and behaviors in order to continue achieving the desired results.

When Global Development works with you on your change initiative, our goal is to leave you and your organization with new capacities allowing you to continue to make large-scale changes on your own. This is consistent with our mission to recognize and nurture leaders within organizations, at all levels. It’s a system that unleashes the latent energy untapped by the 95% of organization that are struggling or even worse, failing. For more information, please contact us.
