MANAGING PARTNER, KATES KESLER
EN hosted an exclusive members only Virtual Roundtable with Amy Kates, Managing Partner, Kates Kesler. She led a discussion that covered how to scale efficiently – that, is moving into new markets, increasing portfolio diversity, and delivering more to customers, without a commensurate increase in costs – is a bigger challenge.
The design of the corporate center is a key part of the scalability puzzle. Business growth often results in excess layers, duplicated work, and unrewarded complexity in the functions. While this can be tolerated during time of rapid expansion, if left unaddressed it soon becomes a drag on the company. Spans and layers exercises do little to change the work or address the fundamental issues.
In this webinar, Amy Kates shared the frameworks and methods that Kates Kesler uses to design functions end-to-end to a way that supports efficient growth, while providing high value expertise and decision support to the business. Participants gained insights into the diagnostic questions to ask and the tools to bring to business leaders.
