We look to directly effect the output of your creative organization by increasing team cohesiveness, team culture & team leadership — to increase the value that you bring to your clients. We focus on adjusting a network of organizational and operational areas to increase your firm’s efficiency and to directly help your bottom line.


What makes your agency special — what laNGUAGE do USE TO DESCRIBE YOUR ORGANIZATION AND HOW DOES YOUR TEAM DESCRIBE IT?

Think about what makes your place special.

Is it your way of doing things? Is it certain people? Is it certain aspects of your environment? What things can you do better? What areas do you want to work on? What values are important to your firm? What does your team say about you and their leaders?

Makr wants to learn your story — your journey.


OUR PROCESS

DISCOVERY

Everything starts with discovery.

There are many strategic ways that Makr can approach change in an organization. What works best for you — requires an understanding of who you are.  

This discovery period is meant to get to know you and your company’s story. We meet with leadership & people in the trenches. We observe, we interview, we talk, we do assessments and we learn.

DEFINE

We define what we need to do & make a plan for action.

Makr focuses on what works and identifying the gaps where the agency is falling short — the variables that are preventing your firm from meeting its business goals.

After discovery, Makr provides you with a detailed assessment report & change management (action) plan. This master list identifies your core values and objectives (and perceived versus actual) and provides suggested organizational interventions that can move your firm forward.
