Luminate Ventures provides Management consulting to help organisations to solve issues, create value, maximise growth and improve business performance. We use our business skills to provide objective advice and expertise and help an organisation to develop any specialist skills that it may be lacking or address any specific areas of concern.
In this mode, Luminate Ventures is primarily concerned with the strategy, structure, management and operations of a company. Our role is to identify options for the organisation and suggest recommendations for change, as well as advising on additional resources to implement solutions.
Solutions come after the consultation – designing and planning an execution of a strategy that is specific for the business and one that outlines a path to future success.
Timely Intervention – impactful outcomes! That’s what is at the core of an interim manager and that is exactly what you get with Luminate Ventures. An experienced and with a strong case study credentials, Ian has the background and expertise you may need.
An experienced business leader who is able to manage an organisation through a period of change or transformation, provide stability to a business following the sudden departure of a senior leader, or provide a highly specialised skill set which a business may not have internally, or simply manage a ‘change project’ across the organisation. Ian’s services in this area are typically hired for three to nine months and help organisations who are undergoing major change, trying to implement a critical strategy or are looking to plug a critical management gap.
Strategy & Transformation
Without a well-crafted strategy in place, the organisation is merely a collection of people pursuing individual goals, guided by what the organisation did yesterday. Making strategy work is one of the greatest challenges of management. In fact, no strategy is stronger than the weakest link in the chain- and crucially the ‘culture’ has to be addressed if you are to see successful to front-line actions.
Based on our experience within strategic transformation, our ‘Think – Plan – Do’ approach will help your organisation design a strategy implementation model to bridge the gap between strategy and impact. The reality is that execution involves a series of key choices that are just as important as the strategic choices – leading to a better design and a better chance of success.
At Luminate Ventures we provide a range of professional ‘functional’ services – you can choose all, some or rely on one specific area. The benefit of using Luminate Ventures is that all that knowledge and expertise is inherent and available. It means a broader and more objective view can be taken around assignments.
Our functional marketing expertise provides a wide range of services, linked to a specific project, or to kick start a new marketing strategy or business need.
Sales are simply the ‘life blood’ of any business. They are a crucial function and their success is paramount.
