Driving Performance Through Capability

When a company's distinctive capabilities are clearly defined and leveraged, they are positioned to respond to events, solve problems, and implement change faster and more efficiently than their competitors.

Why Build Capability?

Knowing your key capabilities creates new value, and is the secret to staying relevant in a rapidly changing business environment.

Companies that build and leverage their capabilities saw:

  • Decreases in defects, re-work, cost, time-to-market, and risk.
  • Increases in quality, productivity, customer satisfaction, performance, and new/repeat business.
  • 50%

    of businesses say building capability is among their top three priorities.

  • 61%

    of organizations struggle to bridge the gap between strategy, formulation, and implementation because they lack capabilities.

  • 75%

    of S&P’s current firms will be replaced by 2027 because they can’t identify and develop capabilities.


Outpacing the Competition

Capability is the key to staying ahead of rapidly evolving expectations.

Now more than ever, organizations must deliver above and beyond customer expectations and find new ways to stand out and stay competitive in a continually evolving, always challenging environment.

When a company’s distinctive capabilities are clearly defined, they can move their business forward with a precise strategy and purpose, positioning themselves to respond to events, solve problems, and implement change faster and more efficiently than their competitors

The essence of strategy is not the structure of the company's products and markets but the dynamics of its behavior … the building blocks of strategy are not products and markets, but business processes.
