ALM Intelligence: Can you tell us a bit about how
Leaderscape came into being?
Kormushoff: Leaderscape was born out of our passion for people, businesses, data and performance. We
spent decades as consultants and in-house operators
helping Fortune 1000 companies turn over the rocks
to solve big, meaty problems. We were tasked with
knowing what really drives performance and found
that most performance methodologies only measured
the lagging indicators, such as financial, ERP and other balance sheet-related metrics. One of the consistent challenges we continued to see in our consulting
engagements, was that organizations were missing the
ability to measure the soft-stuff—aka the performance
linchpin of any organization—people, leadership, culture and communication. We turned this problem into
an opportunity to create a business transformation
platform that puts AI-powered data into the hands of
our consulting partners and their clients. To us, the
whitespace in change management is all about having
the right data to measure the soft-stuff.
ALM Intelligence: How does Leaderscape go to market?
Kormushoff: Leaderscape is part of the change management and business transformation ecosystem. We
rely on our partners, who are world-class change management consultants, to deliver the power of Leaderscape to their clients. Our partners leverage Leaderscape to expand their offering and create new revenue
sources, and we work closely with each to meet their
specific goals. We have a nimble onboarding process
for new partners that gets them up and running on
the Leaderscape platform quickly. At the end of the
day, we help our partners drive value for clients with
an intelligent solution that provides business leaders
with a more holistic perspective and broader contextual framework for activating change.
ALM Intelligence: Tell us about Leaderscape’s platform.
Kormushoff: The Leaderscape Value Creation Platform
uses AI and machine-learning to measure the soft stuff
of an organization – people, leadership, culture and
communications. The platform is cloud-based and puts
powerful dashboards in our consulting partners’ hands.
In 4 to 6 weeks, the platform can collect, score, analyze
and surface actionable data and recommendations, using
proprietary algorithms. And, there’s always a continuous
feedback loop of data, where the Leaderscape platform
is constantly gathering outputs and delivering outcomes.
ALM Intelligence: What services does Leaderscape offer?
Kormushoff: We believe in the power of ecosystems
and see ourselves as an enabling partner. We do what
we do best by delivering technology that measures the
soft stuff with certainty and our partners do what they
do best in providing world-class change management
and business transformation consulting expertise. Our
partners take the lead with the client and we provide
sales and technology support, training, and, of course,
new data and insights. Our platform was built to be
flexible and scalable. It can work with large consulting firms leading highly complex, multi-year transformation engagements, as well as with boutique firms
focused on delivering more pointed assessments, such
as cultural audits, strategy and execution gap analyses,
organizational alignment assessments and strategy,
and market alignment roadmaps. We’ve put together
some case studies, which give more detail about how
Leaderscape works, along with the specific results.
