Family Business Successions

We believe family businesses are the backbone of the economy in several countries. We support the business owners and entrepreneurs in making the right decisions and we implement the succession plan optimizing the value proposition and managing the succession as a project.

Nyali supports the organisation in developing mechanisms to ensure its continuity during and after the disengagement (of the person) of the entrepreneur.

We define and implement a strategy, and the relative project plans, aimed at managing the succession as a proactive, structured project instead of a reactive set of unstructured decisions, with the aim to preserve and increase the value of the organisation.

We belive success is a function of method, motivation, ability and opportunity.

Our approach is aimed at ensuring the critical success factors are identified and properly managed through a detailed analysis of the project environment.

The project success is the result of a choice and not accidental.

Healthcare/Hospital Project Management

In a combined approach, we provide formal training in project management and we support Clincal and Administrative staff coming up with a creative solution to a problem by rethinking the basic assumptions of the Hospital processes.

Clinical and administrative staff frequently lead project teams being subject matter experts, but with no formal training or experience in project management.

Small things add up to large overall improvements. Superior operating performance is often the result of many small but significant improvements. If one thinks about rising health-care costs, it may be not a big change that is needed but myriad small changes that would ultimately result in lower costs.

Action Learning

Nyali offers its customers an approach to design, challenging intense and experiential training allowing the creation of links with the everyday project related issues of the participants.

The training is designed with key figures of the 'client organisation, involved through the creation of client/consultant focus groups.

A structured learning path is more effective if the sources of learning are systematically related to each other and if the natural predisposition to learning by the individual have been made part of the process itself (hence the importance of the Focus Group).

Managers and experienced specialists tend to learn more from the Experiential and Synthesis phases. Moreover, the concepts and ideas are assimilated much more effectively as in the process of education that has given the learning mode of each participant.

This is why we embed in our training real customer projects in which participants are actually involved, allowing the assessment of the relevant aspects of their work in an easy and risk-free environment, favouring ' practical application of what was discussed in the seminars and finally resulting in deeper, more effective learning.

Measuring Training Effectiveness

In collaboration with Alert™ we Offer KOAN®, a complement to project management training which can help increase the value of the training initiatives:

As a clarifying report for self-assessment

The Project Manager obtains a concise, thorough and well-grounded insight into his Strengths and Areas of Development.

As preparation for training

For the Individual:

The textual part helps the participant to prepare and verbalise things better. This way, one has a better view of the effective use of one's energy at a professional level.

For the Trainer:

The competency model can be used as a measure that helps to map strengths and weaknesses of the participants.

As intake for blended-learning courses

The reports of the Koan-PM and PM360, used in combination or separately, are products that are a perfect match with Blended-Learning. They can be used as a self-assessment tool to help make effective choices and to select which module from which a person will most benefit. This approach offers an organisation a chance to reduce training costs per person because of the higher effectiveness ratio in choosing appropriate learning formats, providing cost efficiencies.

As support for selection, internal promotion or setting up project groups:

During an assessment, the candidate can be given the document for reading as an introduction for open dialogue.

As a basis for formulating development questions:

The instrument can serve as a framework for making choices on developmental goals. The competencies can be used as questions to be asked during a 360° feedback cycle. The result can be compared with the personal scores in order to compare one’s own potential (the being) with the perceived behavior (the doing). This way, one has a better view of his effective professional energy balance.
