Strategy without Tactics is the Slowest Route to Victory

Talent Strategy & Organizational Alignment

No company works in a vacuum. Markets today are more complex than ever and dealing with regulations and legal restrictions that vary from one geographical region to another requires a lot of dynamism. An organization today, therefore, needs to have a dynamic and flexible structure to survive. This flexibility ranges from creating the right organizational structure and hiring people to devising a company-wide strategy.

Most organizations spend a lot of resources in selecting a strategy and initiating implementation but most often it’s short term and difficult to sustain.
We believe that having the right people in the right management roles to carry forward the central vision is as important, and perhaps more than just having a brilliant strategy on paper.
Strategies are always related to growth, whether it be geography, market share or new markets. (deleted ‘The’) Misalignment of strategy with the right talent is one of the leading causes of organizational failures.
At Maple, we’ve developed an approach that helps ‘you’ find the right talent that carries out pragmatic strategies effectively.


Which has more impact?

A strategy that’s ideal but not implemented thoroughly or a moderately solid but well-executed one?


We deeply believe that a well-executed strategy brings results far more effectively than a well-formulated strategy. Pragmatism wins over theoretical ideas in a fast-paced business world.

Is your on-boarding process assessed and measurable?

Do you sense role mismatch and dissatisfaction leading to exits?

Is your team structure aligned towards the organizational goal?

Is the team getting stagnant and complacent?

Is there a process for introducing new joiners to the executive team?

Are there communication gaps and lack of ownership within the team?

The Path from Strategy to Success

Maple’s unique approach can help you translate strategy into success by lining up your operating environment to your growth plan.

Studies show that 93% of workplace development programs fail because they’re mainly activity-centred and lack an approach that is strategic and result-based.

Talent development strategy needs to be aligned with an organization’s unique operating environment to ensure its positive impact on the bottom line.

At Maple, we closely follow your institutional capabilities (skill-sets which define the things that your organization does well and not so well.) Once that’s in place, we define core competencies, source and mentor the right talent.

Visualising the path that leads you to where you want to be from where you are today gives a reality check on the likelihood of success. With that vision and the right people, you can move forward to achieving your strategic goals.

Mentoring and developing your team is one of the most critical factors to your firm’s success and growth. We assist in having in place the right mix of job descriptions, compensation plans, reporting structure, personal development solutions and communication with the teams.
