The way we see things

In the current hyper-competitive business environment, every business is organically or otherwise, stretched to its optimal levels. Booming fresh business ideas, innovative concepts and rapidly changing work styles adds yet another challenge especially for SMEs.

It is, thus, pertinent to follow suit with the changing working patterns and to allow the business to find its differentiation in the market place through it’s dynamic resource – ‘People’.

We believe, it is this human capital advantage, which has turned markets to look at talent before product and services.

Our Promise

"We don't replace anything you're doing well already. We just bring it all together to greater effect."

Organisation Development Solutions

The 'Way Of Working' for a business has to be in line with the context of its business operations and environment. Impact of technology, social change and emergence of unified markets is a constant pull and push on how business is conducted.

Having robust and contextually aligned systems thus ensures future readiness.

We believe that most management teams spend huge amount of time strategizing for 'what' , 'who' , 'when' and 'how' around Goals. The resources are planned, organised and aligned accordingly. However, 'why' of Goals remains within the overall Mission and Vision statements as sacred books to be governed by.

The companies who focus on 'why' of goals and align their work accordingly are the ones who strategies for holistic success.

  • Organisation and Job design
  • Job Analysis & Evaluations
  • Competency Framework
  • Employer Value Proposition
  • Value Based Management

Employee Advocacy Solutions

Human Capital value can be optimised only by unlocking the hidden potential of people. The hyper competitive landscape of business environs has forced people to focus on succession more than building long term career.

Organisations need to align their people management practises to ensure perceptive progression for all members in one way or the other. Many a times, these practices become counter productive and restrictive than preferred and progressive.

We believe that managing business based on shared principles and core values, which are designed to instil an ownership culture within the organization can make employees advocacy the best return on goodwill. It leads to alignment of everyone's self interest around the company's values through 'Participative & Empowered' management style.

System Effectiveness & Efficiency Solutions

The 'Way Of Working' for a business has to be translated into daily 'To-Do lists' and "How-to –Do' guidelines. Every successful business enjoys robust systems which are pragmatic and agile to align themselves with the changing business needs.

Using right technology and socially viable interaction methodologies can add the panache to ensure a best practice for others to envy & adopt.

We believe that systems should work for the people and not otherwise. Our endeavour in this domain is to create solutions which ensure that every stakeholder gets the answer to his/her core question " what's in it for me?"

Talent Analytics Solutions

The 'Conventional Wisdom' for the economist John Kenneth Galbraith, is associating truth with convenience. He extends association with 'what most closely accords with self-interest and personal well-being or promises best to avoid awkward effort or unwelcome dislocation of life'.

So, conventional wisdom in Galbraith's view must be simple, convenient, comfortable and comforting – though not necessarily true.

We believe that in the current time of overload of data & information, evolved systems & applications, the need to contextualise the 'hypothesis' with 'primary captive' data is the key to finding meaningful 'insights' to improve what we continue to do to.

This approach supports and reaffirms focus on 'why' of goals.

  • Talent Engagement Analytics
  • Talent Development Analytics

Learning & Development Portfolio

Capability Development is an integral part of organization development. A well-integrated, knowledge led organization focusses not only on behavioral and personal effectiveness but also on Leadership and Team building aspects to leverage holistic value through sustained learning impact.

At Knowledge Ventures we offer learning & development solutions with a twist of experiential and personalized design through off the shelf programs like Leadership Suite ( Working with Teams, Getting Things Done, Cutting Edge and Transformational Leadership ) or simply the domain primers like HR Partnership Boot camp or Training for effective sales for FOS and Mid Managers.

Learner’s journey starts much before a formal training , when we proactively engage and involve the participants through specifically designed pre read material and pre assessment notes for current level of competence.

The sessions are high energy and the participant's learning is augmented by trainer aided lessons, participative experience sharing, loads of inter disciplinary discussions and games thereby contextualizing the outcomes of the session for every need of a learner.

Of course, Andragogy (Adult learning methodology) is the key driver of all our delivery patterns.

Post Session, a detailed Development action plan ( “Golden Compass ™” ) is worked out with the learners, enabling them to monitor their goals and plans. We have a unique proposition for learners to continue their journey with us by joining “KnowledgeVenturers” our online fellowship of learners. This platform provides periodic facilitator guided calls, videos, email helpdesk and other resources to help learners bring it all to a greater effect.
