The V.E.R.U.M. Process


Any business initiative will fail if leadership ignores their team’s organizational dynamics and cultural biases. These “elephants in the room” will always get in the way of success. Whether due to unrealistic expectations, lack of accountability and commitment, or one or more operational issues, you must face the truth and address the underlying causes of what could derail you.

Verum Consulting is expert in discovering these truths about your business. We then work to acknowledge, label, address, and resolve them ahead of initiating a Corporate Real Estate outsourcing RFP process or embarking on any strategic business initiative with you. 

Our Discovery Process is called V.E.R.U.M., and stands for:

V = Validate AssumptionsWe assess your current team environment and give you insight to existing organizational challenges and constraints setting a realistic starting point for your real estate outsourcing or strategic initiative.

E = Eliminate ObstaclesWe label the issues that could prevent you from achieving your desired outcome. These are critical discussions that get to the heart of what typically derails most plans – your team’s cultural capacity for change.

R = Re-cast ExpectationsWe revise any existing strategies by eliciting deep personal commitments and generating mutual support and accountability from your team. We believe people will commit to what they own or create and this step is designed to give everyone on your team ownership in the outcome.

U = Unveil the New Strategy We design tactical action plans that produce a solid foundation for your project’s success. 

M = Manage the ImplementationIt is crucial to act quickly when implementing the plan because delays can erode the opportunity. We help you start strong and stay focused so that your hard work pays off.

“Vik has developed a proprietary methodology to help identify, address and resolve client-specific problems and challenges that could hinder a project’s successful outcome. His V.E.R.U.M. process quickly gets the client’s sourcing and/or project teams committed and aligned BEFORE kicking off the initiative. The result is a cohesive and committed team that can focus on getting the work done rather than stopping to deal with fire drills. If you’ve ever had a promising project derail and cause headaches and delays, you should definitely reach out to Vik.”
