Enterprise Assessments

Due diligence prior to large-scale investments (e.g. M&A), improvements and change almost always relate to financial performance, but what drives those financial results? The work being performed and the manner in which the product or service is delivered. That’s why DeNovo is the supplier of choice for organizations who want to determine the degree of risk and the likelihood of correction before investing time, money, and brand.

Our enterprise assessments include in-depth evaluation of the connection between organizational strategy and goals to the work being done, including how the organization is managed, measured, and performing. Reviewing the culture, the capacity for change, and competing initiatives round out the assessment. At the end, the organization receives a full report detailing the findings including leverage points, failure points, and specific actions to take to realize the tangible benefits.

Leadership Training and Coaching (Team/Individual)

Leaders have a lot on their minds and little to no extra time. Some topics are sensitive and require privacy. Training and coaching sessions, customized for the leadership needs, are available. Sessions can be conducted for groups or individuals.

Design Team Leadership and Knowledge Transfer

At DeNovo we pride ourselves in being in the business of knowledge transfer. Rather than seeking to be an annuity to your organization, we believe in teaching you the tools of the trade and helping you through the process. In too many cases consultants do the work, leave, and take the functional knowledge and imperative for change with them when they go. DeNovo believes in helping you learn, grow, and sustain your own initiatives. Much of our client portfolio is based upon the referrals of happy customers, rather than endless engagements and do-overs.

We want to teach and show your organization to do what we do. Process redesign sessions can be tricky, but our experience can show your redesign leader and team what to do and not to do for shorter design and implementation cycle times and faster results. We start with a 90-100% leadership role with the team and continually transfer to your internal talent, so that by full implementation the skills and techniques have been completely transferred to you.

Mergers & Acquisitions: Pre and Post Integration

M&A can be a precarious endeavor, with failure rates reaching as high as 80 percent. In fact, evidence indicates that around half fail to meet financial expectations. A key factor in many failures is an unbalanced focus on pre-merger, rather than post-merger planning. Some link failure to poor employee motivation and the departure of key people and many underestimate the challenges involved in merging two distinct corporate cultures.

DeNovo’s RFM™ approach addresses these factors, incorporating new strategy and new metrics to achieve desired results, leveraging the best of both organizations. By fully understanding how to redesign the new organization, we succeed in integrating new process, new talent, new management, and new measures of success to redesign a new company culture that results in significant growth.

Chief Transformation Officer Development

Creating and leading a transformation office within an organization is not necessarily intuitive. With first-hand knowledge of the creation and management of such an organization, DeNovo experts can assist you. Whether it’s the skills necessary for the leadership, the number of people you should have in the organization, the type of services you can provide internally, or the governance structure linking other initiatives, we can help.

Training Classes

All training classes include case studies as examples of both what to do and what not to do, and an understanding of the strategy through to the practical implementation.

Unless otherwise noted, all courses are offered as a public or private onsite classes, as individual courses or as a mastery program. Onsite courses are customized for the organization, and can be licensed for exclusive use for the organization. Please contact us at for details.

Results Focused Management™ 101 – Taking Process to the Next Level

This foundational course is required as a first class for all mastery paths (RFM Leadership and Design for Results).

Design for Results

A three-day course that reviews in detail the elements of designing the way your organization should operate and work with results in mind.

Running the RFM Business

Once the concept of RFM and details of design are understood, the tricky transition to running a Results Focused enterprise is important. Leadership, middle and frontline management, governance, performance measurement, innovation, etc. are discussed in detail. Throughout the 3-day class, practical implementation, transition, and change techniques are shared.
