Building a successful business in the challenging environment of the 21st Century requires Vision, strong Leadership and Operational planning that is flexible, resilient and adaptable in real-time.
To that end, Andover Partners is solely focused on helping our Clients to maximize their measurable bottom line results in growing and building their business through the customized integration of The Operational Art Methodology.
The operational art is critical to the long term health and profitability of any business. Failure to maintain the required linkages invariably results in periodic operational disconnects which can sink profits; and in some cases leads to complete catastrophic failure. A number of international businesses have made world news recently for this very reason.
Andover Partners has a long track record of significant success with Clients all over the world: the Operational Art is not limited by business types, culture, or technical difficulty and can be applied to any business globally.
Every Client has different needs and requirements. We begin each engagement by working with the senior leader(s)& decision maker(s) to identify his/her/their most important business goals and associated Deliverables and How the success of these Core Outcomes will be measured. We then custom build an Engagement establishing How to achieve those Outcomes using The Operational Art Methodology: the process by which we do this is called the Andover Partners Methodology.
Andover Partners does not define your business goals and strategy – you do. We show you HOW to maximize your opportunities for long term success.
In short: we are in the “How” business.
The Operational Art is formally taught and practiced in very few places (some elite Military academies, the U.S. Military and a few other locations globally). Andover Partners has built a proprietary platform for delivering the Benefits of The Operational Art thru the medium of the Andover Partners Methodology, which are contained in five Strategic Focus Areas, collectively termed SOLID:
Senior Leadership and Mastery of the Operational Art
Operational Effectiveness and Efficiency in minimizing Dynamic Friction
Logistical Sequencing and Prioritization
Information and Perceptional Operations both external and internal
Defined and Strategic Communications Alignment
