Barring the enjoyment of an impenetrable monopoly, organizational capabilities remain the most potent source of sustainable competitive advantage for an enterprise.
Our clients continue to puzzle over how their legacy business models and organizations can compete in an increasingly global, digital and virtual economy. The simple answer is: They can’t.
In today’s turbulent environment, with uncertainty the norm, SPRING is convinced that the most effective source of truly sustainable competitive advantage lies in what has come to be known as “organizational capabilities”. These drive the unique ways in which an enterprise structures its work, designs its processes, and motivates its people to achieve compelling and well-articulated strategic objectives.
Legacy hierarchical organization designs cannot adapt well. They are built for precisely the opposite. Flexible, reconfigurable networks designed as production units adapt very well. They are relentlessly customer focused. They engage employees. They will prevail in the marketplace.
