Our existence is a direct result and belief that organisations needs better leaders, personalised strategies and a culture that shapes how people work in organisation. We are focused on how these three elements in a changing world of work will continue to shape organisational performance. Ours is to disrupt the current industry and create thought leaders and futurists. In creating better leaders we seek to change the way organisations are led and how people desire to be led in the ever-changing environment. Through our engagements whether in facilitation workshops or consulting work we seek to change the culture in how we work and perform at Alpha plus x. Strategies in organisations ought to be relevant to enable personalisation. We believe if you do not personalise you cannot be meaningful and as a result you are unable to create deep connections between the products and customers.
Technology will change almost every part of our lives – the jobs we create, interactions, business phenomena and our societies. Amidst this technological revolution facing the global world – Africa remains lagging behind. Our approach is to look at technology shaping the world and how this can drive exponentiality on the continent. How we can do more than just maximize shareholder value but create sustainable development and business environment. Our deeply held believe is that Africa must be the home and springboard for the 4th Industrial Revolution and many to come.
Leadership and Management can not be mutually exclusive. When we look at management we have specific objectives we want to achieve and there are clear controls and mechanism in place to ensure we achieve. Now leadership is about inspiring a direction and allowing people to achieve it using various tools and means to progress. One is about control and the other about inspiring. So, today organisations are caught wondering what is needed and at which level? We help organisations answer these questions and defining their needs as change disrupts.
When leaders embark on the journey of building organisations we recommend one strategy – exponentiality. This strategy addresses the linearity of markets and highly complex environment leaders are expected to lead in. The world today has no place for mediocrity and underperformance because the world today particularly business finds itself in linear growth environment. In what is a sluggish economic environment, slow GDP growth and global geo-politics with an abundance of cheap capital in financial markets, the question remains; where is the exponential growth? How should teams and leaders be responding to the demands of today?
Organisational Culture is the set of standards, norms, beliefs and practices that shape the way people work in organisation. Culture is lived and not expressed. We say this because for an exponential organisational culture to manifest in organisations, the parameters along which you design for and determine that culture must be lived. Our research shows that there are four cornerstones to make up a exponentiality culture. These are framed by asking four questions; 1. What kind of people do you recruit, develop, incentivise and dismiss? 2. What type and mix of products do we create and market to deliver at exponential rates? 3. What technology do we need to support a culture of exponentiality? 4. What is the over-arching strategy to drive and guide exponentiality?
