The purpose of Capability is to enable organisations to achieve above average market returns, which can only be delivered through sustainable differentiation.
Differentiation can only be sustained when organisations create capabilities that are unique to the business environment that they serve. Organisational capabilities can only be a source of sustainable differentiation when they are designed around the specific factors that influence the performance of a company within their unique operating environment.
Our definition of a capability is therefore:
"A self-sustaining unit that is designed based on the factors that influence performance. This unit converts pre-designed specific input into pre-defined desired business outcomes. This unit functions independently of the resources that make up the unit on a sustainable basis through Continuous Innovation."
At Capability we specialise in creating such capabilities as a differentiator for our clients.
