Investing in your people and your human resource management practices can have a tremendous impact on productivity. For people to be truly productive, they must connect to the vision, values and strategies of your organization and understand how they contribute to the organization’s overall success. The most successful organizations understand that solid human resource practices are essential to enhancing their productivity and must be considered in the framework of your strategic directions, structure, systems and processes.
Our experienced consultants bring in-depth knowledge of all aspects of organizational management to each engagement. We work closely with you to identify practical and realistic solutions to enhance your current practices, ensuring you can attract and retain the most qualified people and remain as effective and efficient as possible in your short- and long-term operations.
The following framework depicts MNP’s approach to building a successful, sustainable organization from a people perspective:
We live in times characterized by swift, dramatic changes. Factors such as changing economic conditions, shifting trends in globalization, labour market demands, new technologies and increased customer expectations are challenging organizational leaders to rethink the way they do business to stay competitive and profitable.
Designing an organization involves organizing resources, including people, process and technology, to deliver results in the most effective and efficient way. A business and/or service delivery model defines how you produce and distribute a product or deliver a service to meet the specific financial or client service goals of your organization. MNP works collaboratively with you to get an in-depth understanding of your organization’s strategic goals and vision of where you want to be in the future and helps you develop an organizational structure and business or service delivery model that will get you there. A solid organizational design will:
We offer an objective, independent perspective based on a comprehensive assessment, in-depth knowledge of best practices and cumulative years of specialized experience that is invaluable when you are addressing critical issues in your organization. MNP works with you to ensure that the structure and model of your organization matches its goals, meets the challenges posed by business realities and significantly increases the likelihood that the efforts of your people will be successful.

Worldwide failures in the financial services marketplace along with dauntingly complex regulatory and risk-management challenges have placed governing boards under intense scrutiny. Today, the public and stakeholders demand more from boards and expect greater accountability and transparency. As a result, it is more important than ever that boards understand the environment in which they operate and develop a governance model based on best practices that rigorously and continuously measures the performance of both the CEO and the board. Effective boards add value to an organization by:
Many organizations have been challenged to formally consider strategic and functional governance issues. Although some have tried to fit within popular models and many have addressed compliance, few have looked critically at improved leadership and management. Today stakeholders expect more. MNP helps you achieve your best performance ever by:
Effective governance principles and processes apply to all organizations: large, small, for profit, not-for-profit, cooperatives, crown corporations and agencies or publicly-traded companies. However, since a governance model is largely shaped by the cultural norms and values of the organization, there can be no universal template for sound governance. That’s why MNP Consulting integrates these accepted principles and practices to design a model that is customized to your unique needs. The following framework depicts our principle based approach:
In today’s fast-paced and competitive environment, organizations must be adaptable, flexible and innovative to achieve success. Increased stakeholder expectations, budget constraints, competing priorities, economic instability and a range of labour market challenges make it necessary for leaders to look critically at the way they lead and manage their businesses. Being able to adapt and change course when necessary is imperative.
MNP’s consulting professionals understand that successful transformation needs to be effectively integrated in the broader transition initiative. We work closely with you to ensure our change management solutions consider the impact on your people, systems and processes as well as on your external environments to minimize disruptions to your business.
MNP believes that by designing a strategy and plan that engages your people, they will be more willing to support the transition. That’s why we ensure that the people who initiate change and those that are most affected by it understand the nature of the change, why it is necessary and the risks of not moving forward. We work closely with you to build the knowledge and skills you need to help your organization transition through change, as well as provide the ongoing communication and encouragement to ensure long-term success.
