Consulting Intervention Approach

Our products and services are based on a core of timeless fundamentals updated with world-class experience that links management development to management execution to business results. Sound execution fundamentals are the same irrespective of industry or circumstance.

Working from that core of timeless fundamentals, we work with our clients to adapt our products and services to their needs. We neither ‘design from scratch’ nor do we sell generic ‘canned solutions’ that cannot be connected directly to client needs.

We offer development programs, consulting services, and assessment surveys that we help clients customize, as needed, to connect to their management practices and processes.

To the extent a client is doing the right things but needs to execute better, our offerings can flex to meet that need. To the extent that a client needs to do things differently, our offerings can flex to make the needed changes.

We focus on individual management practices that almost anyone can learn to use. We focus on management processes that any organization can implement. We provide methods for learning and implementation that work.

Our clients bring the will to be "the best" in execution; we provide the way that comes from "the best".

We live in a borderless world. The two sides of the globalization coin see both companies from overseas setting up shop in the region, as well as organizations within the home country articulating global ambitions - to expand their footprint abroad. The net result is that now like never before, there are a variety of alternatives for customers to choose from.

This applies across markets and domains - whether it is consumers having purchase choices like never before, or organizations being able to shop around in a larger arena for ancillary products and services. This abundance of options characterizes the global marketplace of our global village.

The fundamentals of management are real. You use them, perhaps intuitively, when you work with other people in any kind of enterprise - from chairing a local charity organization to leading a work team to building a complex industrial organization

If the arena is global, then so are the players. Taking the sports analogy further, if earlier it may have been adequate for companies to perform well at a state-wise or national level, this is still necessary, but no longer sufficient. Companies now have to be competitive, at least at the broader regional level, and more often than not, on a global scale.

The burning issue that you need to address every day that you step onto the field is perhaps best summed up by one straightforward question

“Is your team ready to play at the world cup?”

The fundamentals of management are real. You use them, perhaps intuitively, when you work with other people in any kind of enterprise - from chairing a local charity organization to leading a work team to building a complex industrial organization.

Just as you learn the basics of golf or engineering and then refine them over time, so also you master the fundamentals of management so that you can apply them in any situation. These are not merely skills you use on the job - they are skills for living you can use at home, at work, and at play.

Integrating the fundamentals of management into a unified system enables effective application and ensures sustainability. The need for a unifying structure has never been greater with the increasing complexity of the environment today.

The Allen Management System is a back-to-basics systems approach to managing organizations that has been tried and tested for more than 45 years and refined continually over the period.

The Allen Management System emerged out of a three-year study Mr. Allen completed on behalf of the National Industrial Conference Board where he analyzed the work of managers in over 150 corporations. As a result the system has evolved from a practicing manager's standpoint covering the fundamental work that managers actually do in organizations. This makes it eminently practical and it can be easily customized to dovetail effortlessly into organizations across industries / sectors.
