Business Transformation and Change Management
The need to reinvent and to continuously transform is vital to a business health and sustainability, and yet many organizations regard the activities and responsibilities of Change Management professionals and practitioners as discrete, separate from, and often secondary to, core transformation efforts and initiatives.
Strong Point Strategy uses its Business and Leadership Development Methodologies and Tools to strengthen, scale and accelerate the transformation efforts of its clients. Strong Point Solution Teams bring, enable, teach and improve Change Management Capability in the operating environment. Leaders and teams participating in any Strong Point assisted Transformation learn, practice and master Business Development and Leadership skills that can be continuously strengthened with predictable and authentic results.
Strong Point’s Strongbox ™ is a branded business acceleration tool that helps companies, teams and individual professionals, learn, master, streamline and scale a business activity. Growth can be defined and measured by increases in revenue, operational and personal effectiveness, performance or product output as realized through improvements in processes, planning, people or results.

Leadership Performance and Development
Recent studies have shown that companies make five times the investment in Technology, as they do in people and in Leadership Development. IT spending as a percentage of revenue is bench-marked at an average of 5.2% of revenue. Training Industry reports show Training Investments amount to only 1% of revenue. Leadership Development training is included in that 1%.
Strong Point uses and deploys its own Leadership Development Methodology in advisory engagements. Leadership development happens consciously through activities such as Team Setting. Team Setting enables a blended Strong Point/ Customer team to define its own actions, transitions, and relations (Interpersonal Skills). Project leaders and team members can practice and enforce team strength. Leadership Capability, Project Success, Individual and Team Performance and the realization of intended business results are significantly improved.
Strong Point can also design, deliver and support Enterprise Leadership and Performance Development Initiatives.
