We provide the support managers need to take a good idea and make it a reality within their organization

Innovative ideas by themselves are or little value to organizations. By contrast, innovative ideas that have been successfully implemented are extremely valuable and, in some cases, may be transformative.

One of the primary reasons innovative ideas are not implemented – even when managers recognize their potential value – is that managers lack the time to support the implementation process. Significant groundwork is required to implement new management approaches and ideas but local government managers who focus the preponderance of their time on day-to-day management – making sure trains keep running on time, if you will – simply don’t have the time to support change initiatives. Their “spirit is willing” but their time is limited.

Berkshire Advisors consultants are available to provide the support needed to execute innovative management ideas. We work with managers to develop a plan for implementing a new idea, determine what steps in the plan can or should be performed by internal staff, and provide the skills, expertise and capacity needed to provide any assistance needed to support implementation. Depending on client needs the types of support provided may vary considerably. The ultimate objective of the assistance is the same regardless of the role we play – helping managers successfully implement new management approaches within their organizations.
