When you take a first pass scan over a variety of organizations, the differentiating factors that most often jump out are the products and services being provided. Drilling down further you might find that the true distinguishing characteristics are the competencies that went into the producing them. These competencies are based on the strength of the company’s core talent.
In our professional consulting, we find that many companies live and die by the quality and effectiveness of their staff. However, building and strengthening the company’s core in today’s environment takes more than management or the actions of any one person. Many companies are looking to sustainability as a means to engage the organization and build on core competencies.
