    Across multiple owners and 6 years, Ignition worked with a portable sanitation services company to get their organization clear regarding strategy, that took them to being a national site services company, aligned and ready for sale. A culture survey uncovered a need for deeper cohesion. Ignition convened the gamut of leadership, from in-the-field leaders through the C-Suite, to build leadership skills and team dynamics. By taking a very pragmatic approach to strategy development, Ignition reached just “enough” clarity, cohesion and discipline for them to move through two highly successful exits.

    A successful family owned facilities management company had organically grown for decades. They now wanted to define their next stage of growth—doubling $1 billion to $2 billion in quality revenue in 5 years. Ignition Institute did deep immersion interviews to understand the current situation—where the opportunities and challenges lay. Ignition worked with the leadership to define their next ambition, and established a clarity and momentum to push the strategy into execution. Ignition highlighted a blind spot, which has been very significant—the importance of diversity: diversity of gender, cultural heritage, age, thinking style and much more. Relentlessly pushing strategy into execution, the company made massive strides in 6 months. By embedding the disciplines in the leadership and beyond, the Ignition process rapidly unleased substantial performance uplift in the first few months.​
