A diagnosis to know and analyse the practices of your managers
Growth, reorganisation, transformation, the director must be able to rely on all of their managers, and be confident that their actions are working towards achieving the expected results. But how can we identify managerial practices, assess their relevance to strategy and their consistency? Discover our managerial practices audit service offer!
Unbiased and pragmatic, our objective vision of your situation will allow you to analyse the strengths and weaknesses in your managers’ practices, in order to harmonise their methods and approaches, thus placing the development of managerial potential at the heart of your strategy regarding organisation, reorganisation or productivity.
It is a dynamic and innovative approach to the development of managerial skills, which can also help identify the need for an internal benchmark of managerial practices, whether it be between departments, subsidiaries or between two potentially merged entities. An essential step to secure your processes and optimise your organisation.
Appropriation of the company’s strategy, operational management of the team, results and productivity focus, cooperation between teams, customer orientated… all of these are areas which will be analysed in order to provide you with a complete overview of the management landscape within your company.
We strive to decipher the managerial structures of your organisation (hierarchical and functional chains, autonomous teams, nature and diversity of profiles, multi-cultural dimension or not…) based on the daily managerial realities experienced by managers and employees.
The method used to carry out the audit of your managerial practices is divided into 3 complementary steps, which are essential to gaining the necessary perspective so as to offer you the most objective analysis possible.
First, it’s a matter of understanding the management’s vision, taking into account your context and strategy, and speaking with the management team. In fact, the manager and his or her management team influence the entire organisation through the ambitions they have set for themselves, the means they have set for achieving these objectives, and the practices put in place. In this context, it may also be necessary to carry out a diagnosis of the functioning of the management team.
Listening to managers from different areas, different levels of management, listening to their employees… Qualitative interviews to analyse how managers perceive their managerial practices, what the difficulties and shortcomings they perceive are and to confront this vision with the one that employees have on the practices of their managers.
Finally, it is a question of observing the organisation to understand its workings, the governance put in place, the rituals established but also the circulation of information, the management of borders between teams. Additionally, we can end by analysing certain HR processes or tools such as annual interviews, for example.
At the end of the audit, to accompany you in the best possible way, we’re offering a new service that allows you to benefit from the best in terms of advice and coaching. Our consulting approach enables you to benefit from our expertise and experience and thus, to act as accelerators, particularly in carrying out the audit.
