The Importance of an Organisational Diagnosis
An Organisational Diagnosis, is in many ways similar to what your general practitioner would do upon initial inspection, diagnosing all potential underlying problems that may exist within your business processes, existing management system and structural integrity between functions

This process may involve holding group discussions, gathering research data on current and past performance, interviewing individual employees and management teams, using methods to scrupulously determine the state of your organisational structure and the weaknesses it may possess that are affecting the overall optimal efficiency of your business and preventing growth
With Knowledge Comes Clarity
  • We develop a framework that aids top and middle level management teams in decision making processes.
  • Identify Key Performance areas that require optimisation
  • Identify bottlenecks within the organisation and weaknesses in existing strategies
  • Create awareness of potential long-term and short-term effects for each decision made
  • Establish level of the health of your organisation

There are myriads of terrible strategies applied imperfectly that lead to stunted performance levels and in turn drive sales to the ground until it brings your organisation to a complete halt. Diagnosing these problems before they become apparent cannot only save you time and money, but your reputation and good standing with employees, customers and key stakeholders too

Allow Stratworx to diagnose your organisation and help reveal its potential competitive edge

The impact of Strategy

In a locally and globally competitive market, your organisation needs to be highly flexible in ensuring that it is able to meet its objectives by being efficient, maintaining high levels of sustainable productivity and scouting new opportunities that will improve the performance and competitive position of your business.

Through-out your organisation’s life-cycle, it will need to undergo various stages of transformation and restructuring in order to remain competitive and adapt to its environment. These processes require for practical strategic analytical frameworks and development methods that focus on achieving the desired objectives in line with the organisation's vision and mission

Strategic Framework Implementation and Development Process

All businesses are different, even if they serve homogenous products or services, therefore the strategies that may be successful for one entity may not be as affective for the other. This is the crux of employing proper strategic frameworks. At Stratworx Consulting, our approach is tailored and specific to your business. We strive for solid results and make it our priority to ensure that it is a continuous improvement process.

“We believe that Strategic HR should be proactive and define the importance of integrating its philosophy and policies with the organisation’s strategic intent and unleashing the potential of its human capital.” ~ Stratworx Consulting Team

Strategic HR
Why is Strategic HR paramount to the long-term success of my business?

Strategic HR is a proactive Human Resource Management approach that believes that it is not enough for the HRM Framework in an organisation to merely be applied and practiced in isolation. In order for your business, your employees and key stakeholders to fully reap the benefits of adhering to sound HRM practices and resource management models, HR needs to integrate its policies into the business’ vision, mission and internal philosophies.

Stratworx approach to Strategic HR, is to:
  • Conduct an audit of the HR Department
  • Develop and/enhance performance management processes to support overall strategy
  • Conduct and implement Job Analysis results
  • Increase potential access to funding opportunities from relevant SETAs
  • Develop and/or enhance policies to ensure compliance with Labour Regulations
  • Grow talent in line with business strategy
Strategic HR integration is KEY

Our approach enables your employees and managers to effectively drive towards accomplishing organisational objectives and set goals. We enable your organisation to seek and recruit the right talent, implement the necessary skills development programmes and create a conducive environment where every contributing member can work to the best of their abilities to drive your organisation forward.

This creates a high performance environment for both employers and employees, sharing a common goal and striving towards the success of the organisation

“Do not be caught out time wasting by looking for the correct template or not knowing what correct process/procedure to follow in executing operational functions. An effective and efficient company is built on the basis of a solid quality management system that is able to respond to internal and external demands.” ~ Paballo Moshao (MD: Stratworx Consulting)
Quality Management Systems
Quality Management Systems

A company has management processes and procedures for the creation and delivery of products and services. The objective of a Quality Management System is to reveal to you how to consistently deliver products and services to meet your customers’ requirements. Therefore, this will effectively include all the tasks and activities that have to take place throughout the company to deliver the product or service to your customers. Most QMS are generally adequate, however poor management systems can lead to wasteful processes, poor products & services and dissatisfied customers.

QMS implementation

We at Stratworx are able to achieve the following for your company:

  • Managing change - moving from the old way to the new way of doing things
  • Gap analysis identification
  • Develop the quality policy
  • Facilitate awareness training
  • Develop quality manual and quality procedures
  • Develop quality objectives aligned to the vision and mission
  • Facilitate an internal audit
  • Review of the results and implementing corrective actions
Business Performance Management
What is “BPM”?

Business Process Management (BPM) is a systematic approach to making an organisation's workflow more effective, more efficient and more capable of adapting to an ever-changing environment. A business process is an activity or set of activities that will accomplish a specific organisational goal

Why Model Processes?

Business process models are a simple and easily understood depiction of business knowledge in images (Pictures verses words). Universal Language to explain complicated information in sequence and logic with the intention to uplift an organisations' process maturity

What is BPMN?

Business Process Model & Notation (BPMN) is a standard for Modelling that provides a graphical notation for specifying business processes in a Business Process Diagram (BPD) based on a flowcharting technique very similar to activity diagrams from Unified Modelling language (UML)

Business Process Optimisation

Business Process Management (BPM) is a field in operations management that focuses on improving corporate performance by managing and optimizing a company's business processes. As such, many BPM articles and scholars frequently discuss BPM from one of two viewpoints: people and/or technology.

In a fluid global economy, organisations should aim to be versatile in:
  • Driving Business Value
  • Delivering within Constrained Conditions
  • Providing Performance Improvement
  • Delivering Competitiveness
By applying global standards, frameworks and methodologies such as:
  • TOGAF (The Open Group Architecture Framework)
  • BPMN, UML, Technical Writing methodologies and standard modelling notations and patterns

The purpose of standards, frameworks and methodologies is to move from Diagram to Model. This entails incorporating all the other architecture domains of TOGAF namely; Technology, Application and Data to establish relationships and collaborations between human actors, system actors and the data required to do this. So for a holistic view of these relationships we require an Architecture repository to house and ‘analyse’ these collaborations and impacts that arise from them.
