Core Operational Values and Practices

We consider and function in a manner that adding value to the client is our core business objective. We strive to ensure that our solutions are:

  • Practical and on-ground implementable, with a 360* view of the stakeholder interests and well-being.
  • Cost, effort, and time advantageous leading to improved bottom and top lines.

Why ALMaC?

ALMaC Promise of Integrity (API) is the bedrock of our consultancy, training and other professional practices. Our experts are trained and held to the highest standards of professional integrity. For all of us in ALMaC, a client engagement is an opportunity of building relationships for mutual learning, development and growth and it is not just a commercial contract.

Focus on the client’s long-term business growth interests: While the solutions are designed to yield immediate results in measurable terms, we advise and design sufficient institutionalization measures. This effort an approach helps the client organisation continuously improve upon its own internal benchmarks. ALMaC works closely with the senior management for developing sustainable long term focused organisational policies, systems, approaches, and attitudes. We adopt change management methods and approaches as the basic framework on which the technical and functional solutions are built.

Internal Capacity Building: However robust or relevant a solution is, it does not yield any considerable result unless the people within the organisation develop their capacities and willingness for implementing the solutions. ALMaC’s major efforts are focused towards identifying the right personnel within the client organisation and thoroughly train them for taking over the implementation with ownership and a sense of challenge. The required organisational analysis and diagnosis of the clients’ problems are conducted collaboratively with the associated client personnel through a data-based approach, including photographs, video graphs of the situations to develop a visual appreciation of the problems and their intensity.

Advice on tools and techniques: In the constantly shifting and growing marketplace, different management and technology tools and practices keep emerging all the time. We do not influence the client to adopt this or that tool for short term gains. We enable the client organization to gain mastery into understanding and managing the processes that impact their business and organizational growth. Depending on the appropriateness, we help them suitably adopt the fundamental values and principles advocated by these practices and to integrate them into their working systems.
