At Sixfootfour we don’t make it up. Our consulting is underpinned by proven frameworks and business models.

We have a kitbag of simple tools and techniques to stimulate conversation and accelerate change in the business.

Our toolkit includes:

  • Calculators to determine the value of organisational change and the consequence of not changing.
  • Calculators to determine the profile for a specific process or series of processes including:
    • The Cost to Serve
    • FTE requirements
    • The business case for change
  • Diagnostics for examing culture and change readiness.
  • Workshop facilitation guides for developing a business strategy
  • And more...

Stakeholder Management

Stakeholder management is a critical component to the successful delivery of any project, programme or change activity.

A priority outcome needs to be the development of the stakeholders as the human capital within the business.

We will work with the transformation team to evaluate, manage, and measure how and which stakeholders are impacted by the program and how they in turn, will impact the change program.

This includes:

  • Structured evaluation techniques to understand the stakeholders and their readiness for change.
  • Crafting engagement channels appropriate to the stakeholder group.
  • Establishing appropriate change governance
  • Delivering tailored education and training programs.

Our process analysis includes determining or calculating the:

  • Cost to serve.

Business Outcome Management

One of the most difficult tasks for any manager is the execution of strategy. This task is made more difficult when senior management do not have a common understanding of the ‘end game’ and disagree on how the strategic outcomes will be achieved and measured.

Working with your team, Sixfootfour will develop your business plan in a manner that resolves the above barriers.

Deliverables include:

  • A clear and common understanding of the end game / strategic objective.
  • Clearly defined outcomes that must be achieved to realise the end game and the initiatives required to deliver them.
  • Clearly defined initiatives and the outcomes they support.
  • A comprehensive accountabilities matrix (RACI) to define ownership of the initiatives and outcomes.

Business coaching

We don’t claim to introduce new management concepts, but we are confident you will find our approach, tools, and techniques to be new and refreshing.

Our business coaching program can be summarised as “turning theory into practice”. The focus is on the “what, why and how". We work with managers so that they know
"how to do it", not just "what to do."
