Integrating more than 50 businesses across four states, all acquired within a three-year period, was a big challenge facing one client. Business growth and assimilation created significant costs related to turnover of personnel, customer service problems, and difficulties in installing economies of scale. Route 2 engaged 25 leaders from four states in a unique and creative three-day strategic planning event. Facilitators guided the team through designing the future of the organization and, in the process, helped build the team unity needed to implement that vision strategically. The group collectively developed a Strategy Map which became the guide for the business. Route 2 designed and delivered a comprehensive organization-wide year-long leadership education process. The result: the business strategy was implemented and Route 2 continued to support the executive team in improving business results until the business was sold with a positive return to shareholders.
