Building long-term strategic agility, especially in the face of increasing complexity, uncertainty, and disruption, is crucial for the future success of businesses today. But change is hard. In fact, most efforts to fundamentally change the trajectory of an organization fail — on average, 70% of the time.
To help with this, business leaders are adopting more modern business practices like the OKR and agile methodologies to help them meet their strategic goals. While these methodologies are simple in concept, they can be challenging to implement effectively in larger and more complex organizations.
Organizations need the right partner to help them build strategic agility and overcome the challenges of change management. That’s why we’re excited to announce the acquisition of AuxinOKR, a UK-based consulting firm that helps businesses execute on strategic initiatives using the Objectives and Key Results (OKRs) methodology. In addition, we’re excited to announce the launch of Quantive Consulting — a complete portfolio of management services designed to meet the needs of growing businesses.
Quantive has built the leading platform for strategy execution and adding a services component was the logical next step.
As our Chief Strategy Officer Bo Pedersen notes:
"As we looked to build out a consulting practice at Quantive, it was a no-brainer to leverage our relationship with AuxinOKR and Peter and Mark's expertise. Together, we will be able to deliver on our brand promise of enabling the best possible outcomes for our customers by combining the best technology and services available today."
Quantive Consulting offers the frameworks, expertise, and services necessary to help businesses better navigate the challenges of organizational change and transformation. Offering services for both the Quantive Results and Quantive Singularity products, Quantive Consulting portfolio of services meet the needs of enterprises to ensure they realize their true business potential. Combined with our market-leading products, our goal is to help our customers reduce the risk associated with change, accelerate time to value, and maximize the impact over time.
We’re also excited to add experienced consultants to our team to help our customers in their change management journey:
Peter Kerr has spent the last four years leading AuxinOKR’s engagement and coaching services. With more than 20 years of consulting experience, Peter has worked with a variety of customers to give strategic support in helping them reach their true potential. At Quantive, Peter will use his background in managing and setting up businesses to deliver c-suite level OKR coaching to ambitious large and medium sized businesses.
As the co-founder of AuxinOKR, Mark Richard has helped businesses and teams navigate change and performance improvement using the OKR methodology. He began his career as a product manager at Unilever then moved to managing director roles at a variety of global organizations. As part of the Quantive team, Mark will use his background as an OKR Coach to help customers develop strategy execution projects with focused, goal driven cross-functional teams.
