Business Transformation Practice Leader
Jan Stefanski has over thirty-five years of experience in the planning, design and implementation of a variety of business solutions. He believes most organizations understand the importance of an aligned strategy, integrated work processes, and strong leadership with engaged teams and individuals. Yet, some organizations have veered off course or are striving for new heights and are looking for assistance.
He has creatively assisted clients in addressing the key issues in achieving their operational objectives or planning for the future. Jan "makes fuzzy things clear" by providing services focused in three areas: operational effectiveness (strategic planning, process mapping and the associated change management); effectiveness of teams and individuals (coaching and training); and problem definition, analysis and solutions generation (facilitation).
Clients have stated his approach is pragmatic, systemic and collaborative. Jan understands the need for measureable business results. They believe that his strength lies in the ability to explore, understand, and integrate the realities of their business, industry and organizational setting, especially cross-functional initiatives.
While many others may offer point-solutions, Jan provides solutions that are holistic in nature by integrating people, process and technology. Clients draw upon his previous business experiences, learnings from previous consulting engagements and his in-depth understanding of a wide range of tools and techniques to service their most pressing needs. They value the knowledge transferred.
