Intergage Consulting Group Inc. (Intergage), formerly JLS Management Consulting Inc. (JLS), “a corporation incorporated under the laws of Ontario”, is a Canadian firm specializing in organizational renewal, policy/program development and assessment, particularly within the public sector. Our services include: planning and leading change; talent management; and monitoring and assessing organizational effectiveness.
Intergage Consulting Group Inc. builds on a solid history of professionalism, tailored approaches and the delivery of creative solutions that combine both research and consulting methodologies. Our staff and network of associates offer a singular commitment to excellence and client service coupled with an exceptional range of knowledge, skills and experience in the public, private and not-for-profit sectors.
The notion of “business as usual” has become an anachronism. Today’s business world is complex and ever-changing and in order to compete, today’s leaders need to manage knowledge, align employees with new directions, develop more responsive policies and programs, engage a broad set of stakeholders in policy and decision-making processes and renew governance, accountability and ethics structures to respond to more stringent public reporting requirements.
Planning for tomorrow while taking care of today’s business is a key challenge for leaders. Our fast-paced world requires leaders to constantly innovate, manage knowledge as a resource and keep employees aligned with corporate objectives that can change overnight. In the public sector, the management challenge is further complicated by the need to balance government and ministerial directives with client-centred service delivery and higher-order tasks that include stakeholder and citizen engagement, meeting ethical and accountability standards and building collaborative partnerships to manage complex horizontal issues.
To succeed in this environment, innovation, organizational renewal and modernization must top the management agenda.
Intergage works with senior leaders to structure new and organizationally appropriate ways of making both minor adjustments and major program and organizational changes. Our associates help translate strategic vision into effective business plans. Together we align people with business objectives and provide guidance to help organizations deal effectively with current and future management and governance challenges.
