The reason Corporate Real Estate (CRE) outsourcing initiatives fail is because leadership neglects to address team dynamics and cultural biases in the organization, and they remain unresolved. These “elephants in the room” always get in the way of success. Whether your elephant is a deficiency in internal resources, unrealistic expectations, lack of accountability and commitment, or one or more operational issues, Verum Consulting can help. We are expert in helping you discover these truths, then acknowledge, label, address, and resolve them. This discovery process enables your team to achieve peak performance no matter what level of service we are engaged to provide.
V.E.R.U.M. 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 will give you insight to challenges and constraints and provide you a starting point to begin the outsourcing initiative.
E = Eliminate obstacles — We label the issues that will likely derail you from achieving your desired outcome. These are critical discussions that get to the heart of what typically makes or breaks the outsourcing initiative – your team’s cultural capacity for change.
R = Re-cast expectations — We revise any earlier client-developed strategies. This step is designed to elicit deep personal commitments, mutual support and true accountability from members of your team for the new or re-cast outsourcing initiative.
U = Unveil the new strategy — With everyone committed to the new vision and a set of realistic expectations, we design the tactical action plans built on what we’ve developed resulting in a solid foundation for outsourcing 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.
