Focus on Leadership and Business Domains

Organizational performance is influenced by numerous factors. MMTC divides these factors into two distinct domains; business and leadership. The domains rely on inputs and levels of expertise eitherdomains present or deficient within the organization. MMTC’s  detailed analysis of both domains clearly identifies strengths and weaknesses within.

On-Site Client Assessment

Led by experienced MMTC team members, an unbiased and objective two-day assessment is conducted on-site. It involves interviews with key managers, survey of all employees, a facility tour and validation of information provided.  A full assessment report is written based on the  findings and  post-assessment “report-out” is shared on-site with the management  team.

Workshop Outcome = Action Plan

Each plan will include  the identified  assessment opportunities, capabilities needed to address each opportunity, required resource allocation, responsible manager assignment  and a timeline with due dates.  The who, what and when needed is defined to make sustainable improvements at  the company.
