The first is ‘ARCHE’ – meaning the origin, the beginning. Indeed a large part of our methodology is dedicated to exploring the history and heritage of your organization. Our experience has shown that to devise pertinent strategy with a view to the future, there is a lot one can learn from exploring and understanding the recurrent patterns that make up the history of your organization. This process of patterning will reveal the singularities and strengths that are unique to your organization.
The second is ‘STASIS’, commonly defined as “a state of stability in which all forces are equal and opposing, therefore cancelling each other out”. Part of our work involves understanding these tensions – the opposing forces that make up an organization’s Excellence. By understanding the mechanisms behind these forces, you access an important key to replicate this Excellence more broadly and repeatedly across all the activities of your organization.
