Lightship believes that we can deliver the best value over a sustained period by approaching every relationship as a partnership.
This includes our employees, our clients, and a broad assortment of relationships with consultants, individual experts, service providers, and technology companies. We strive to build deeper relationships and go beyond the typical employer-employee, vendor-client, and company-company alliances.
Every client situation is unique and presents different opportunities. Lightship has partnerships with a variety of consultants, individual experts, service providers, and technology companies that allows us to provide the optimum skills and services to our clients.
Lightship Partners' breadth and depth of experience across industries and corporate functions has helped shape the following philosophies ...
- External business strategy, internal operating strategy, and technology are intertwined. Senior executives, especially CIO's and COO's, must have a solid understanding of all three and must consider and balance all three to maximize organization and stakeholder value.
- Execution matters most. A strategy without execution is the same as never having a strategy. Organizations must have both strategy and execution experience to achieve meaningful results.
- Successful executives must build great teams and give them the guidance and the freedom to execute. Executives must balance the needs of individuals with the needs of the organization when forming a team and then use a blend of management techniques (e.g., nurture, lead, push, teach, direct, encourage, etc.) that allow the team to function at the highest levels.
Lightship Partners operates at the intersection of these philosophies and helps clients understand and navigate programs based on these philosophies.
