Assisting CEOs to drive growth by increasing alignment of their people to business goals by 50% within 18 months

Change is part of life, yet change is perhaps the one thing most people struggle with. Organisations are no different, and the reason is a lack of a concrete vision for the future. A Blueprint which lays out where they are, where they want to go, and how to get there.
 
Blueprints has assisted CEO’s in over 130 organisations to codify their future vision. Using input from all their people, they are able to create a Blueprint for the future which all employees understand and buy-into. This Blueprint creates a visual guide for what the organisation needs to do and avoid to achieve its vision.
 
Measurements allow tracking of how close the organisation is to realising its vision. Our typical client is about 50% closer to achieving their vision 18 months after creating their Blueprint.

The video below shows how we assisted Deloitte Consulting Africa to discover their Blueprint for Success

“Blueprints is simply the best mechanism we have ever used to help us drive a high performance culture in our business. I can see a direct correlation between the Blueprints scores and the financial performance of the business. We have such faith in the process that we have incorporated the methodology into the Deloitte suite of offerings”

Louis GeeringCEO Deloitte

Results

“The Blueprints formula was THE best thing I ever did for my business. What started out as a process to make our mission, vision and values come alive….moved along a path that seems to have no end in sight.”

Terry VolkwynCEO Primedia Broadcasting

“Finally, someone has come up with a simple and straightforward approach to: aligning (or re-aligning) a large organisation towards a singular goal, getting all team members to provide input on how to achieve the goal, highlighting work that should be done and also what shouldn’t, and, creating a memorable hook to ensure the organizational change has legs. I have seen this work in real life, in my organization”.

Peter YinSenior Vice President, FedEx Asia Pacific


“McDonald’s ranking, in the ‘Best Companies to Work For’ ratings, moved from 47th (Before Blueprints) to 1st (After Blueprints).”

Roz SandhamHRD McDonald’s


“Of the three million things I’ve ever done in the corporate environment, this was by far the most valuable.”

Blueprints History

Guy Martin – Founder of Blueprints

Guy was born in Zambia and after school he joined the Royal Air Force in the United Kingdom and graduated as a commissioned officer at RAF College Cranwell. Having left the RAF, Guy returned to South Africa and in 1993 founded Special Operations Services (Pty) Ltd (SOS) in line with his Special Forces training. This alternative logistics business grew exponentially both locally and in Europe due to his creation of, and adherence to a mathematical Business Formula he developed in 1996 – which he rather unconventionally converted into an art gallery.
