Many Corporate Real Estate (CRE) outsourcing initiatives fail because leadership neglects to address team dynamics and cultural biases in the organization, and they remain unresolved. These are the “elephants in the room”, and they will always get in the way of success. Whether your “elephant” is a deficiency in internal resources, unrealistic expectations, lack of accountability and commitment, or operational issues, Verum Consulting can help. We are expert in helping you discover these truths and then working with your team to acknowledge them, label them, address them — and resolve them. This enables your team to achieve peak performance no matter what level of service we are engaged to provide.
V.E.R.U.M. is a proprietary process that uses creative, powerful tools and techniques that open lines of communication, stimulate discussion, achieve true accountability, and allow for real change. V.E.R.U.M., an acronym of our company name, stands for:
V = Validate assumptions — We perform an in-depth assessment of your CRE environment. This discovery reveals biases inherent in your organization, provides insight to challenges and constraints and provides a starting point to begin the outsourcing initiative.
E = Eliminate obstacles — We label the issues that will derail you from achieving your desired outcome. These are critical discussions and get to the heart of what will make or break the organization’s initiative – its cultural capacity for change.
R = Re-cast expectations — We revise earlier strategies. This step is designed to elicit deep personal commitments, mutual support and true accountability from members of your team.
U = Unveil the new strategy — With everyone on the team committed to the new vision and realistic expectations, we design tactical action plans built on what we’ve developed—a solid foundation for success.
M = Manage the implementation — It is crucial to act quickly when implementing the new CRE outsourcing strategy because time can erode the opportunity. We help you stay focused so that your hard work pays off.
