A CIO once asked us what the difference was between “Coaching” and “Consulting”. We explained that traditional Consulting involves bringing in someone to temporarily augment your team because you do not have enough resources or your team is lacking a specific skill set. Coaching involves working with your existing employees to improve their skills and capabilities in their current or planned assignment. In short, the Consultant does your fishing for you, while the Coach teaches your staff better ways to fish.
Our coaching resources are focused exclusively on working with organizational groups and program/project teams in support of specific business objectives. We do work with individuals, but specifically targeted to improve their skills and abilities in support of a functional role. It is similar to the way a sports coach works with individuals to improve the overall team performance. We focus on helping executives, program managers and team leaders to improve their skills in support of their functional or program role.
Our Coaching approach is based on our DeepRoots™ Program Execution Methodology, which has produced phenomenal results when used as the basis for large Transformation Programs. We have taken this same approach and broken it out so it can be used for organizational teams or small projects. Typical areas for Coaching include:
All of our Coaching Solutions start with a mini ½ day Workshop to identify the target team(s)/program, finalize the business objectives, and determine success criteria. Our Coaching Support ranges from as little as 16 hours a month up to multiple fulltime Coaches for extremely large complex Programs.
ITTI leaders are available to meet with members of an organization’s senior management team in groups of 1-3. These focused discussions are similar to executive coaching sessions except that they are not meant to be on-going. These are generally used to provide a more direct understanding of Quantum IT concepts and how they may be applied in specific functional areas or scenarios.
