Paul A. Laudicina, chairman of A.T. Kearney, joins us on Edgewise to discuss the transformation of the company, from subsidiary of a global service firm to a management owned company, and many of the lessons he learned along the way. Paul shares the steps he took to rebuild the companyâ€™s business model and reconstitute the organization. He explains the importance of aligning a common set of values and principles unique to your DNA, having a robust strategic planning process which considers all variables, and an organizational culture that is clearly identifiable from the outside looking in. He stresses that it is a continuous process of change and to be prepared to shift direction as required by the business environment and its conditions.
Paul A. Laudicina is Managing Partner and Chairman of the Board of global management consulting firm A.T. Kearney, a position he has held since 2006. He is also the founder and chairman of the firmâ€™s Global Business Policy Council, a forum of CEOs and thought leaders focused on assessing global strategic opportunities and risk management. He was named to Consulting Magazineâ€™s annual ranking of the Top 25 Most Influential Consultants in 2005 and, again, in 2007. He is the author of a number of articles and books on global strategic issues, including World Out of Balance: Navigating Global Risks to Seize Competitive Advantage (McGraw-Hill, 2005). His upcoming book, Beating the Global Odds: High-Stakes Decision Making for Success will be released in September 2012.
