Business Designers and Systems Architects for Start-ups and Hyper Growth Companies
G. Li & Company Ltd (Glico) is the operating vehicle of Dr. G and his international team of professional fire-starters of change since 1991 and have worked on some of the most challenging paradigm shifts in governance and management in Asia. Sharing the risks and rewards, we prefer to work with winners in helping them to manage the next stage of hyper-growth and unanticipated changes. In the area of governance, we may even prepare and redesign your Board of Directors -- the ways in which direction and controls can be better instituted. In the area of leadership, we help set in a growth and succession blueprint that can withstand rapid organisational stresses. For a few, we even help you set up your own innovation in-house academy and transfer know-how to your team, so that you can replicate excellence and resilience in your own way. With limited resources and time, we can only help one firm at a time. But when no other consulting firm can assist, and you have the grit to take your firm to the next level ... and you know in your heart that it is worth doing ... then ask for Dr. G.
Igniting Innovation ...
The first action is to create a burning platform for change. And involving your customers to design the next product or service is still one of the best ways.
Designing Your New Board of Directors...
Dr. G and his team design new blueprints to set new direction and consolidate your controls. For start-ups and growth companies, even though the principles of good governance have remained the same, the practices of exercising that governance are quite different. As a company evolves through different stages of growth, moving possibly from founder to family members as key investors to being staff, your Board of Directors' architecture, composition, and priorities must change. Designing a firm yet flexible architecture of your Board of Directors correctly is critical to your firm's future scalability, viability, and impact.
Determining What Matters...
What gets measured gets done! But sometimes not everything worth measuring can be measured. Everything that can be counted does not necessarily count; everything that counts cannot necessarily be counted. Getting everyone to sense and focus, moving in one direction, on things that do count, is the first battle.
Developing and Preparing Talents to Solve Future Management Challenges...
Creating internal consulting teams to solve company-wide challenges with well proven tools can work wonders. GE does it. Why can't you?
What are some of the best ways for your new management team to learn while contributing to your firm's growth? Innovation comes from collaboration, from learning from mistakes made, and from rapid market testing. Is your team ready for take-off?Are you looking back to see how far they are following you?In what ways can learning be personalised for the team? Can you really spot your talents?Possible tools like Six Sigma and Lean Start-up would work for your organisation?
Inculcating Skills of Innovation by Establishing Your Own Innovation Academy
Your Innovation Academy’s mission is to provide a transformational training experience for your staff and your vendors. To do this, we work together and with leading design/business schools, to shape creative minds capable of launching new ventures. This is because the fire of innovation burns brighter and lasts longer when it is started from within.
