Things like creating a new vision or building successful strategy for the Enterprise, it is an open secret that a majority of the tools and techniques being used are no longer fit for purpose.
Consulting is a good idea but it is just failing to cut it with today's business challenges. We know it as the act of observing, analysing and advising others from a position of experience, but it has been abused by those consulting companies wishing to use it as 'cover' for selling expensive software or an extensive boiling of the ocean for its own ends.
In order to deliver the value required by today's business leaders, consulting services need to deepen its value if it is to embrace the new dimensions required by todays' business.
The way organisations have been designed to work, is in a world that no longer exists. Inappropriate behaviours and cultures that have been conditioned over generations by poor leadership, lack of inspiration or motivation. Indistinct visions, operating models, processes and systems. Add to this the lack of talent and the conditioned attitudes to risk and the picture is a complex one.
Creative thinking is a business imperative.
The creative consultant needs to be able to drive strong points of view out of an ability to think 'crazy' thoughts.
HP has a enviable track record of bringing innovation to market and HP Technology Consulting is redefining the consulting approach with capabilities and creatve thinking that is addressing the real needs of business. HP is one of the few companies anywhere in the world that can provide consulting services from the initial creative thinking stage, through to the actual implementation. This is a very powerful capability and one that addresses the challenges business face today and moves HP's consulting capabilities to a 'Weapons Grade Busines Thinking' level.
