Strategy Consulting

Over the years, ENTOVATION has assisted many organizations in shaping and leveraging their knowledge strategy. We work with many considered leaders in the knowledge movement (e.g., Skandia, The Mutual Group, British Petroleum, Siemens, The World Bank and more.) We have consulted to most of the major consulting firms as to how they might develop their knowledge service practices.

Furthermore, our ENTOVATION Network expands to most regions of the world and is represented in almost every industry sector. In fact, there area variety of ways to approach the strategies of a company or a nation for that matter. See Entovation's own, Debra M. Amidon's International Activity List for some examples of how we can help your organization enter the Knowledge Millennium.

We can advise you on any aspect of knowledge innovation and knowledge management. This includes a balanced approach to the economics (i.e., Intellectual Capital), behavior/learning (i..e, Social Capital) and knowledge processing/communications (Technological Capital).

Our services are best utilized in the strategy formulation stage and/or in the review of current strategy phase. We can work with the leadership of any function (e.g., finance, HR, IT, Quality R&D, Sales/Service, etc) which we describe as the 'community of knowledge practice.'

Oftentimes, it is the leadership of a particular business unit seeking to more effectively manage a particular division and then to provide a success story for corporate-wide visibility. In particular we can assist with Knowledge Collaboration, especially that of Innovating with the Customer through our strategic formulation process - Profiles of Customer Innovation.

Typical of other services we have performed for clients are:

  • Analysis of Current Initiatives
  • Intelligence Scanning
  • Executive Coaching
  • State-of-the-Art Reviews
  • Knowledge Insights
  • In the planning stage are a series of briefings on the knowledge economy and the management of knowledge, with contribution from our recognized experts around the world. Each briefing will contain insights into developments, key trends, management issues, guidelines of success.

    Let us know of the current State-of-YOUR-Practice and discover how our tools and methodologies can strengthen your knowledge dialogue resulting in your leveraged success.

    In some select instances, ENTOVATION principals may be available for retainer relationships for long-term periodic guidance.
