adapt or die.

Evolutionary adaptation is the adjustment of organisms to their environment in order to improve their chances of survival. Organizations also have to adapt to their environment–shifting markets, dynamic customer needs,  and changing technologies– or they risk obsolescence. 

To evolve from where you are now into something more nimble, you’ll have to go through an adaptive valley. You adopt new tools, processes, practices, relationships, and mindsets in this phase. The adaptive valley inherently comes with disorder, but the disorder is temporary.

Our evo.IQ Model™ is a structured approach to help you quickly and systematically move through the adaptive valley and evolve with intent. It will help you focus your goals, hone your skills, communicate more effectively, continuously experiment, learn through feedback cycles, and embrace a growth mindset. And don’t worry; it won’t take millions of years.

Assess

Assess is the backbone of the evolve model and provides the foundation for your organizational evolution. Interviews, workshops, and an in-depth analysis provide critical insights into your organization’s people, products, processes, technology, culture, and mindset.  With this holistic view, we will recommend learning paths, capability enhancements, and product delivery improvements. This is where we discover and prioritize your organizational goals, outcomes, and strategic direction.

With a clear collective vision of the future, your team will launch full speed ahead.

Adopt

Adopt is essential for reactions to take place. With people and priorities aligned, we coach teams through the problem-solving process of Hypothesize > Experiment > Recalibrate > Repeat. And what is the most volatile element to change? Humans. Humans are messy, and change is hard; skill-building is a must. Our coaches focus on improving communication, alignment, process and practice adoption, and a continuous improvement mindset.

Amplify 

Amplify increases the concentration of your organization’s evolutionary efforts. The products of successful experiments can now be replicated and scaled throughout the business, creating new connections and improving organizational plasticity. As customer delivery becomes a holistic capability, you’ll better anticipate and embrace market, technology, and economic changes.

Accelerate

Accelerate is the catalyst of the evolve model, speeding up your organizational evolution. By building learning communities, colleagues share valuable experiences, deepen learning, and experiment with new, more advanced tools, practices, and processes. There is kinetic energy in a learning culture that keeps people engaged, interested, and invested in the future.
