So many of our clients tell us that they want their teams to use structured thinking disciplines, but don't know how to make it happen. They introduce the principles to their new hires and expect them to use the techniques going forward, but find that in the rush to get documents to their clients the teams forget what they have been taught.
This pack outlines simple and proven techniques that you can apply either as a whole. or one at a time, to boost the discipline around your team's focus on clarity.
If you see your teams applying any of the techniques listed below, you will know this pack is for you:
* Spreading all of the pages created during a project over the boardroom table and then walking around cherry picking key ones and then putting them barely changed into the final pack
* Building the pack one page at a time during the project and then "whooshing the titles together" to create a contents page
* Describing the work the team did rather than clearly articulating a cohesive set of recommendations
* Team leaders - partners included - accepting that they will have to redo the pack at the eleventh hour as this is easier than getting the team to do it themselves
This pack has been prepared by a team of communication specialists who are passionate about helping their clients create clarity in their problem solving and communication more easily and more often.
Trained in these disciplines as communication specialsits at McKinsey & Company, they now coach and train consultants and strategy teams on a range of communication issues primarily across Australia and the Asia Pacific.
