Greenway Announces Tango
Innovative consulting engagement integrates firm operations with brand positioning
[USPRwire, Tue Jul 28 2009] The current economic and market climate for design firms is yielding an understandable preoccupation with simple survival. However, this may cause firm leaders to miss opportunities embedded amid these pressing challenges, opportunities to refine their firm’s vision, strategy, leadership, operations, and market positioning. A new service offered by The Greenway Group – Tango – supports the act of seizing current opportunities and moving more rapidly toward greater profitability.
“This engagement we are offering is an opportunity for a firm to converge an intense focus on two key ingredients for thriving through challenging economic conditions: firm strategic operations and firm brand positioning,” said Greenway Chairman and Chief Executive
Officer James P. Cramer. “Leading this effort are Doug Parker and Bill Wittland, two deeply knowledgeable industry professionals.” Tango delivers a customized, scalable process and consulting to enable firms to go beyond surviving current challenges to thrive as they recover and pursue prosperity.
The convergence of focusing simultaneously on strategic operations excellence and strategic brand positioning offers the potential for a firm to confidently accelerate out of current economic challenges and achieve greater profitability, enhanced market presence, and greater growth opportunities for the future.
Tango engagements typically include a five-phased process for integrating operations excellence and brand positioning. The engagement yields a documentation of both an operations and a brand plan to support an actionable approach for each client firm.
