Stalemate helps organisations maximise profits and efficiencies. After we’ve gone, clients get:
1) more profit from new or improved service offers to their customers
2) more efficiencies from improved processes in delivery of services to their customers
This is because people will be left working more effectively and with more enthusiasm on situations that currently feel a bit stagnant, sticky or unclear. During our period of work, we use various methods to help all of the various stakeholders feel lighter about a situation, see more available options, feel brighter about the way forward and get clearer on the actions they need to take.
There are thousands of consultancies out there providing a similar overall service, but our approach and methods are very different, which lead to more innovative, creative and tailored results and agreed concrete action plans of how to go forward.
Using experience in sales, teaching (especially kids with behavioural barriers), multi-million construction project management in central London and NHS digital change management to plan events, sessions and programmes of playful activities which help people see a stalemate situation from different perspectives. We use a plethora of tools and methods to:
1) identify intangible concepts and forces affecting a situation right now
2) and apply metaphors to transform them into tangible, concrete issues
3) which can then be addressed with a clear action plan
Stalemate can also use the method of Lego Serious Play, as they are a certified facilitator. It truly is astounding what clear and creative plans can come from posing simple questions and having people answer it by physically building models and describing them with metaphorical stories. You can never be disappointed with the utility and creativity of what comes out of one of these sessions.
A few examples of types of service we can use as the vehicle for achieving clients’ outcomes are:
Value Needs Analysis
Gap analysis planning
Programme planning and management
