Can You See the Future? It is all around you!
At SAMC, we help you see the future and turn it into your successful growth strategy. Maybe you need a Blue Ocean Strategy®!
At Simon Associates Management Consultants (SAMC), we help our clients adapt to fast-changing times.
As corporate anthropologists, SAMC applies anthropology’s concepts, methods, and tools to help clients “see, feel, and think” in new ways. We have developed methods to successfully transform business models, develop growth strategies, and build better corporate cultures.
Offering a full array of idea generation, innovation, and change support, we show companies and their teams how to respond to new economic situations, shifting customer demands, and innovative ways to sustain their growth. Often, companies stall out trying to stay true to their mission and models only to find that they are losing relevance. This is where we come in, helping them get off the brink, adapt to new realities, and soar.
Blue Ocean Strategy shows you how to find unmet customer needs and uncontested market space you can own.
SAMC executives are trained practitioners in Blue Ocean Strategy and utilize these concepts and techniques to develop new strategies, open new markets, and create demand. In this revolutionary business model, companies do not compete for a small, highly competitive pool of existing customers (red ocean) but create a blue ocean of new customers.Learn More
We work with organizations and individuals to help transform their talent, improve their diversity and parity, and coach and train women to become the best they can be.
As trained executive coaches, we understand women’s challenges in searching for personal growth and professional achievement. We are helping to recraft the narrative about what women can do in our society. Our programs help women have role models, support women as they venture into their entrepreneurial businesses or corporate positions, encourage women to achieve C-suite positions, and help create companies with purpose. Now is the time to live diversity, equity, and inclusion for women to gain the respect, position, pay, and power they deserve.Learn More
Business is all about Cultural Habits: the values, beliefs, and behaviors that are called our “culture.”
In today’s business environment, long-held certainties about how to organize your business are being re-evaluated, if not wholly revamped. Corporate cultures are ready for a reboot. Companies want to change their culture. As experts in using the Organizational Culture Assessment Instrument (OCAI), we help them assess today’s culture and transform it for the future.Learn More
Transformation in an organization requires great leadership.
The need to develop the next generation of leaders is a pervasive concern for companies of all sizes and industries. Companies have eliminated their training programs and left their future leaders struggling to find their pathways. We offer several Leadership Academies designed for specific organizational challenges. Specializing in developing young leaders and particularly women leaders, we understand the different leadership styles relevant to particular cultures and corporate requirements.Learn More
Delving deeper into the obstacles of change has helped us look at human development challenges.
As certified coaches, we have developed both synchronous and asynchronous programs offered on a group and individual basis. Individuals are more isolated today. Remote work has created systemic changes requiring human development to support the new ways of working, with the freedom and opportunity for the hybrid workforce. Well-being is a critical concern, as is belonging. At SAMC, we focus on “self-care,” career choices, and “rethinking” professional development.Learn More
