We are the pioneers of the
“ChAMP methodology”

ChAMP – Change Acceleration Management Process – is a superior method for securing results from strategic plans, project management,100-day plans, post-merger integrations, and business line and product launches, as well as change management and transformations.

“Execution” is a hot topic these days, especially given the speed of technology-enabled business, outsized shareholder growth expectations, and the high valuations and full multiples paid for acquisitions.  “Buying right”, a “great strategy”, and a “robust exit model” are certainly all key ingredients for a solid investment; yet execution is the one element in the investment lifecycle that remains elusive for many investors and challenging for many companies of all sizes facing change imperatives.  For many years, we have specialized in helping investors and companies improve results and break through inertia using hands-on execution tools.

ChAMP was engineered to eliminate ‘gear slippage’ that too often results from alternative approaches.  It utilizes fewer resources and yields higher efficacy from business initiatives. ChAMP is an outgrowth from best practices in leading P&Ls, running global PMOs at Fortune 100 companies, leading post-acquisition and integration plans for leading investment funds and numerous corporations, and leading combat-readiness programs for the US Navy and Marine Corps. It’s a highly adaptable technique that seals the gaps and creates faster and better results.

Key considerations before you address your execution goals:

  • Gear slippage with strategic execution is a universal norm—but, it does not have to be
  • There are limitations to traditional Project Management Offices (PMO)
  • ‘Teaching strategically’ rather than ‘replacing widely’ will ultimately produce healthier organizations
  • The right process will create a “Culture of Execution” where managers embrace getting things done
  • There is a better way—the ‘Change Management Acceleration Process’
  • ChAMP is also a powerful force multiplier for PE Operating Partners
