Our work is what sets us apart.
Our vision is to build strategies and communities where everyone can reach their full potential. We approach every engagement with three tools: the Artemis Approach, our clients as partners, and our teams.
THE ARTEMIS APPROACH
Assess: Before we CAN make ANY recommendations, we need to understaND your organization.
Our team starts each engagement by gathering qualitative and quantitative information from every level of your organization. We talk to team members at different levels—from your top executives to your customer service representatives. We survey the market and we analyze and benchmark data wherever it is available.
Ideate: we sit down and start to really dig into what we've heard.
We might engage employees further, or make additional data requests. We take a deep dive into understanding your market and any companies that might be analogous to yours. But most of all, this is where we begin to pinpoint the issues and metrics that are at risk of impeding your organization’s growth.
Iterate: where we Work with you to design solutions. Plural.
Not even the greatest managers can come up with the best solution on the first try. We partner with teams across your organization to refine and test solutions, weaving them together into a meaningful vision for your organization’s roadmap.
Implement: A presentation can’t prepare your organization for growth. But your people can.
Our team will build a comprehensive roadmap to allocate resources and execute on the strategy we have created with you. Most importantly, we prepare your people to own, lead and execute these plans. We can plan to be as involved or as hands-off as you prefer but we will be there to make sure everything translates into action.
Optimize: We believe that change is a process, not a point in time.
We want to get clear on what success looks like to your organization. Our team will help you define and measure your short- and long-term success metrics, but we’ll also build out dashboards and training to ensure your organization continues to innovate and evolve.
Clients as partners
Our firm has only one objective: to help our clients achieve their goals.
At its core, strategy is not about what you do so much as it is about how you do it. And we believe that nobody knows your business better than your people do.
If the result of an engagement is a set of brilliant insights and systems that don’t support your goals, we consider that a failure. So we ask questions before we try to answer them. We work to understand all of the different dynamics that affect how you run your business.
We can be anywhere. And we build our work around your schedule.
Our teams work in cities across the United States, leveraging technology to collaborate on every element of our engagements. We believe it is crucial to our success that there are no solo projects—it is when we're blending expertise and perspectives that we're at our sharpest and most innovative.
We know the importance of face-to-face conversations and are happy to travel to where you need us, when you need us. We’ve also found that by not working on-site every day, we can add strategic value without taking time and attention away from the valuable work your teams do on a day-to-day basis.
At Artemis Connection, we set aside 4.5% of our time each month to volunteer, donate 4.5% of profits each year, and are committed to consistently engaging in pro bono work for the sole purpose of changing lives, communities, and organizations. This aligns with our vision and values to discover strengths, build communities, and inspire positive impact and leverage learning from our learning lab, people, and resources to execute on our promise.
We pick a theme and focus our time + resources around it. We call this intentional philanthropic approach our 4.5% promise. We launched this initiative because we believe it is the responsibility of every one of us to make the world a better place, and that responsibility extends to companies and corporation of all sizes, ours included.
The criteria we look for in pro bono projects are if it relates to our annual 4.5%,-- advancing women in leadership, is an opportunity for us to innovate, or allows us to participate in an effort that aligns with our values.
Interested in reaching out to us to engage in pro bono work for your organization? Fill out our form below. Upon review, we'll let you know if the opportunity meets our criteria and scheduling aligns. This process typically takes 2-3 weeks.
