Most IT organizations deviate from what are considered to be industry best practices in order to avoid their complexities, rigid nature, and associated costs. The result is an ongoing struggle with a range of problems and challenges that are even more complex, difficult to change, manipulate, or resolve. Such challenges cannot be addressed by technology solutions alone. In fact, some new technologies, once adopted, solve one problem but create others in its place. Traditional approaches to problem-solving may solve the milder of problems, but are inadequate for complex and intractable ones.
Our passion and aspiration is to transform business vision and strategy into effective enterprise change. Our methodology defines how IT organizations can be successful at tackling transformation, innovation, and strategy. We not only show clients how to solve both simple and complex problems, but also how to address them using a hybrid mix of complementary techniques.
W&G has adopted a radically different way of thinking to tackle head on problems that are highly complex and defy conventional approaches and solutions. This new way of thinking provides a set of goals that emphasize a holistic approach to successful outcomes and value creation. New Thinking™ combines two emerging disciplines, Pattern-Based Strategy and Hybrid Thinking, and integrates them so that they complement, instead of conflict with, each other. The coordination of these strategic disciplines results in:
- Enabling IT organizations to seek, amplify, examine and exploit patterns that indicate an opportunity, risk or threat
- Integrating various concepts and models to create meaningful, human-centered experiences to tackle problems inherent to modern IT environments
- Focusing on business outcomes, not just IT outcomes
This aspect of the W&G Method provides us with a rational, analytical, and intuitive approach to solving the problems your IT organization faces today.
