Agility for startups and scale-ups

Enabling strategic performance in startups and scale-up organisations

As a startup, you focus on your offering and how it can disrupt established markets. However, when does such focus become tunnel vision? When may you get caught up on it? During a pitch to investors that would shred your presentation? Or when you try to realise your exponential growth and the market is nothing like you imagined? 

Fast forward a few years, and your startup has grown to the sweet side of a scale-up. Investment is coming, but the organisation is in chaos. Everybody is overworked, yet little seems to materialise. Leaders can no longer be on top of it all, creating tensions. Where do you turn to address those growth challenges?

Henko is the specialist of  
Strategy in modern business, using new techniques such as Wardley Maps 

Henko is here to help you from the early stages to when you need to rethink your alignment to support continued growth and scaling. 

Strategy offers much scope for gaining advantage. Strategy is a changing discipline with increased complexity and many more moving parts and influences in modern business. It is not so much about power plays anymore but the
ability to read the landscape and grab the emergent opportunities that other players cannot spot or do not have the agility to execute. 

We offer training and strategy assistance services that harness your in-house teams' collaboration and wealth of knowledge. We use frameworks such as
Wardley Maps and xMatrix that provide significant advantages in fast-evolving environments. (note - Amazon is known to be using Wardley Maps too!). 

When it comes to scaling, we can continue assisting you as we do with change in larger organisations. Wardley Maps offer a good understanding of your
value chains to align the organisation & operating model that will ensure Flow and unconstrained growth. 
 

Getting started on your challenge

Early stage startup founders may want to join our public training cohorts on a per seat basis. We can also offer bulk registration to those trainings and dedicated assistance in parallel, e.g. if you wanted to Story-Tell your strategy using Wardley Maps in your investment pitch deck, or if you needed to organise a strategy off-site for your leadership team. Please enquire. 

We also offer further services to develop a modern (systemic) leadership & teams using coaching. When reaching a size of 30-40 people, it is time to consider organising in value streams and designing your operating model accordingly. 

We can help you through the whole journey with focused engagements, making it cost effective.


Note - Our engagements are intervention based, so not as expensive as you might think, and we welcome discussing Board/NED roles and sweat equity.
