Our Consulting Services

We understand our region! Consulting in different cultures is a huge challenge faced by the majority of consulting firms. We have developed through the years a solid understanding of our regions business environment. Expertise in a business area is worthless without understanding the overall culture of the business. Tools developed take the business culture seriously and builds systems that suits the ever changing environment within the region.

 

Main Consulting Services

Venture provides in-depth consulting services in four main areas including:

The methods, tools and techniques we use during our training courses are designed so that participants come to appreciate and develop their own knowledge and skills. We make training meaningful and applicable to their areas of work by using problem-oriented instruction such as case studies, simulations, role-plays and debates.

Consulting Engagement Model

Venture does not believe in ready made solutions! Each entity has its own circumstances, culture, resources etc…. This is why we follow the four-phase engagement model. It is a unique model, through which we are able to pin-point problematic areas and improvement opportunities and, hence, device the right solution that is made specifically for you.

Phase One - Initial Consultation: professionally diagnosing issues and problems is a key to solve it. We work with the client hand by hand to clearly analyze the current situation and pin-point gaps that needs to be resolved. High level action plan will be drawn enabling consulting team to craft a solid proposal that takes into consideration the real needs of the client.

Phase Two - Project Proposal: to implement a consulting project, you have to specify your objectives well and state how you are going to reach your goals. Venture understands the importance of the proposal as a key document for the consulting project. Our consultants are well trained on proposal crafting and understand that it should reflect clearly the issues of the client and set the solution plan. Predicted outcomes will be listed and Venture consulting engagement will be detailed.

Phase Three -  Support Programs: Venture will dig into important details drawing a clear view of the current situation and the desired destination. Thanks to its long regional experience, Venture has developed its own tools and techniques to support local business. A strategic plan will be put for the project in hand. The project will identify in details the gaps that need to be bridged and an execution plan will be developed to ensure that all gaps have been filled. Progress assessment will be done periodically to measure project progression and deviation from plan, if found.

Phase Four - Support Program: The final phase is dedicated to ensure sustainability of the outcomes of the project. Knowing that people are a main contributor to solution sustainability, employees will be trained on new practices to ensure that all follow the new set practices. Periodic follow-up and reviews will be a part of the support system to ensure new outcomes are being practiced by concerned departments.

Change management works in parallel with all mentioned phases taking into consideration concerns of different stakeholders and ensuring buy-in from them. This practice ensures smooth progress of the consulting project especially during the execution phase.

The Philosophy of MTa Learning is straightforward and can be summarized in the below:

    “Experiential learning is an active process which engages the learner, not a passive process that happens to the learner. In ‘experiential learning’ the experience provides the platform for learning, whilst the careful analysis and reflection of the experience develops the learning. Individuals are encouraged to work things out for themselves, they are guided to and through their learning rather than being taught. The learning individuals develop is appropriate for them: it is implicit in the approach that there are no ‘right ways of thinking’, ‘set rules, or ‘perfect behaviors’ that anyone has to learn and apply. The commitment developed by the learner to make best use of their learning: they are central to the learning process, it is their learning.”

In Consulting

  • Experienced consultants: A team of senior consultants with considerable hands-on experience in the market and extensive consulting experience.
  • An in-depth analysis of the current situation rather than ready-made solutions: we believe in the uniqueness of each client. That is why we carefully analyze different factors surrounding each case. Our framework ensures that all consultants follow certain steps towards having a holistic view of the issue tackled and not go into the trap of assumptions.
  • High engagement with internal project management team: because consulting projects come with change for the client, it is crucial to work closely with team members and stakeholders at large to ensure smooth transition. Our team of consultants highly coordinates with the client’s project management team and work together hand in hand to accomplish the consulting project. The main benefit of this is basically ensuring the right application of the recommendation after the final report delivery. Most consulting project results are not practiced simply because the internal team did not get adequate guidance/training on how to practice those recommendations in reality.
  • A team of visionary consultants: predicting the future is an essential for businesses.

  • Experience in the local markets of ME & GCC: We understand our market! To provide a solution for businesses you have to be familiar with the culture. Having an expert who understands the culture and speak the language is of great advantage to consulting projects.
