mel parker consulting - navigating a difficult business environment


In today’s chaotic and turbulent times, Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity and Ambiguity are the new normal for business. Every organization has a growing list of obstacles and impediments that rob the organization of speed, growth, productivity, innovation and resiliency. Not only must organizations overcome obstacles, they must also meet the needs to be considered a world class organization – profitability, an empowering culture, top talent recruitment and retention and organizational engagement. Irrelevant of an organization’s needs, 99% of them can be achieved through Leadership powered SCOPE (Strategy, Culture, Organizational Design, People and Excellence).

Take The Limits Off Your Leadership

At Take the Limits Off – we take our role as part of the team seriously. We have a clear focus on meeting your needs and delivering results. As your business partner, we are not satisfied with base business consulting architecture of Discovery, Analysis, Report, Strategize, Execute, Report and Follow Up. We take this construct and explode it with the LEADERSHIP*(SCOPE).

Any obstacle that has to be overcome, need met or vision achieved must be done with Leadership as the foundation, glue and engine. Great leadership is a pre-requisite to sustainable organizational success. When you apply great leadership to Strategy, Culture, Organizational Design, People and Excellence – you literally take the limits off what an organization can achieve.

The five pillars of SCOPE are interconnected and mutually dependent. SCOPE is like a five-legged stool on which we sit sustainable success. Five strong, stable legs provide for maximum levels of success. One broken or underperforming leg – the stool is a bit unstable, unpredictable and unreliable but it can still support the weight of success. Two broken legs – moderate instability and a 70% chance of sustained success. Three – disaster is likely unless there is immediate repair work done on the three broken legs – 70% chance of failure. I think you get the picture.
