As an Investment fund, our investment thesis stems from the fact that core interventions, be it operational or strategic, greatly benefit our portfolio companies. In one such instance, we were looking at experts to help one of our partner companies with a behaviour based coaching intervention. Having heard positive feedback regarding the team at breakthrough and understanding their differentiated approach, we ran a pilot program with them. We followed it up with an extensive training and mentoring engagement for the top management. The idea was to look at organisation’s vision alignment across functions leading upto the top, ultimately resulting in (a) a long term strategic roadmap for the organisation (b) OKR implementation (c) and most importantly, coaching and mentoring of the senior leadership to have convergence with clear action plans.
The ownership of the Breakthrough is immense including in-depth behaviour analysis, transparent & real-time feedback and outcome based iterative approaches which are practical as well. We are already seeing initial impact of their interventions and have a go-to team for such future intervention in other investee companies as well. Special mention of Kaustubh and Timmy who have been instrumental in driving this engagement for us.
