We build the capabilities of your team and organisation.
Capability is simply the ability to do something. A power to perform a specified task. Individuals have capabilities. And so do organisations. When organisations don’t have the power to perform a specified task as well as they want to, they have a capability gap. Often, their leaders turn to us to help them remove that gap. Often, they seek help for a training workshop to remove that gap. Capability Building is a highly scalable approach that enables organisations to rapidly identify, build, and sustain the targeted capabilities needed to continuously improve performance and deliver impact. Capability Building enhances employee skills, mindsets, and behaviours.
50 % of CXOs rank capability building among the top-three priorities for their organisation.
Why Capability Building?
Leadership often recognises a significant capability gap in their organisation and know that they must address this to succeed. Capability building translates directly into performance improvements, on the individual as well as organisational level. Today many organisations link capability building with performance, although many still struggle with credible metrics to measure that impact. Capability Building helps assess and close the capability gap, and ultimately increases and sustains the impact of capability building programs – which are clearly aligned with the overall business strategy to deliver larger and more lasting impact.
The Value Propositions
Install a sense of collective ownership.
"The most important capability initiative is to install a sense of collective ownership of the whole organisation throughout. This is done not just through communication strategies, but also in the way that peer to peer feedback is encouraged, as well as top down and bottom up. All too often organisations don’t act as one, leading to blame games. Keeping a free flow of information and dialogue is key to achieving better outcomes for your customers through everyone in your organisation."
Give opportunities for involvement.
"Building capability is a key engagement platform for both the company and an individual. Great results are realised when people are given the opportunity to be involved in projects that add real value to the company - where failure is seen as the partner to considered risk and a strong coaching culture. Easy to say, hard to achieve without constant focus and effort."
Collaborate ahead of any final decision.
"We saw that by collaborating fully and effectively with the business leaders 6 months ahead of any final decision, using video conferencing, video blogs and podcasts and an iterative review approach - we were able to adjust the proposed design effectively. This meant at "go-live", we had full commitment from leaders and made a fast start to the implementation."
Engagement through employee betterment.
"Reframing language to capability liberation places leadership at the centre of the discussion. Capability development, by contrast, has a subtle way of implying the path to engagement runs through employee betterment. The former looks up the hierarchy, while the latter looks down. The most engaging action seen has leaders trusting employees as being capable of immense creativity and ownership, creating an empowering environment, and raising expectations."
Implement trust building programs.
New trends and terms, such as agility, have appeared lately. Renewed terms remain strong, and are probably an expression or desire for solutions. Employees have potentials and challenges to collaborate. We explore how adult developmental-stages impact perceptions, collaboration, and especially how we build trust. Trust building programs with a proper assessment and methodology have been the most successful.

How We Do It
We start with clear objectives, purpose, and strategy. We focus on the 5 elements which influence capability and which you can influence to build capability. These are processes, skills, organisation, people, and culture. Our capability building works on five core principles. We focus on capabilities and behaviours linked to value drivers of the business. We address organisational and individual capability-building needs. Then we tailor programs to the organisation’s unique starting point and specific requirements. We leverage real work that is complemented with experiential and other learning. We can then scale and institutionalise capabilities through processes, tools, and people.
The Vision of Eagle Edge is to be the catalyst for risk transformation, resilience creation and growth acceleration of our client's enterprise value. We turn risks into opportunities.
Clearly articulates business pain points and achieve quick wins.
The capability building model enables the team to have the conversation with the business and objectively determine the pain points experienced by the business from the perspective of the business. These pain points are great opportunities to deliver focussed, quick wins - especially in the delivery of services to the business. Focusing on these pain points demonstrates to the business that it can address the issues that are important in a business context.
Prioritise and focus projects against strategy and real need.
The capability building enables the organisation to review all proposed initiatives to see if they will address the pain points and gaps. Doing less but doing it better and ensuring it has the right impact is important for successful outcomes and this process ensures that the money is being spent where it is most needed.
A communication tool.
Capability building facilitates a clear communication tool that your team can use to demonstrate that they know what is required by the business - and ensure communication of initiatives is accomplished utilising language that the business will understand.
Grows with the business.
The capability building is a representation of the business at any point in time and provides a current view of how the team members are delivering services to the business. By keeping it up to date, it becomes the essential communication piece across the business.
