To make it stick, you must capture the processes, expectations, and policies so that it can become permanently part of the organization’s DNA.

Business Strategy


any businesses fail to thrive because they become unnecessarily reactive to the external environment. This is the result of not having a clear set of navigational charts to rely on when the going gets tough. An effective internal business structure captures processes, policies and procedures, and must permanently integrate into the DNA of your organization in order to handle stormy weather, and steer clear of inevitable obstacles.

Here are some problems that we, at Alchemie Academy, have successfully helped companies to fix:

  • Haphazard sales process feeling like a new invention everytime

  • Frequent employee turnover by an exhausted and overwhelmed workforce

  • Undocumented scope of work/RFP processes

  • Reactionary to fleeting and poorly communicated strategies

  • Hiring employees who are a bad fit for the organization

  • A mismatch between policy and practice

  • Change fatigue from poorly managed and incessant change

  • Scattered implementation with poor change management
  • Marginal results from poorly managed change


  • An office realized they didn’t need more sales, they needed higher sales and the limiting factor was the self-worth of the sales team. We developed a series of strategy days to raise up the whole office.
  • A family run business with no formal policies ran into expensive legal and relationship turmoil. We created communication guidelines, functional labor divisions, and training on how to have brave conversations with one another.
  • A family owned business that grew fast, went from an exciting and fun startup to living reactionary, exhausting work days. We helped them create systems to triple their revenue while creating a succession plan and developing the next phase of leaders.
  • A culturally iconic arts organization with extensive facilities was working off of a long expired operational contract based on pre-growth phase spaces, outdated practices, and old expectations. We guided them through an RFP process formalizing business operations and codifying policies, practices, and expectations across all operations.
  • A successful small business founder, had all of the intellectual capital of the company in her head. We helped her develop systems that are replicable, measurable, and sellable — capturing a valuble body of Intellectual Property.
  • An essential division within a financial services company were exhausted by constant change. We engaged in aligning the culture with new efficient policies, bringing light to a group downtrodden by change fatigue.
  • At Alchemie Academy we combine customized consulting with our proven programs developing solutions to ensure you and your organization are operating at your highest level.
