Change can be difficult. Things get in the way of your plans, but with good change planning, most issues are often avoidable and any unforeseen obstacles dealt with in a thoughtful and pragmatic way as they arise. We help you figure out what, why and how change needs to be managed so that your strategy is not derailed and remains relevant to your business.
Despite thoughtful planning, change often gets stuck. Quick wins aren’t as easy as initially thought, decision making becomes harder, staff priorities are diverted to urgent operational issues, managing interdependencies becomes overly complex and overall momentum start to slow.
We get involved at the very beginning of a complex change or help identify the causes of a slow down or misalignment. We set a clear path forward that engages your teams and can play various roles to keep you on track from; being an independent voice on a steering committee, rolling-up our sleeves to coordinate the change for you, or simply finding you the right talent to get the work done.
Scoped, integrated and realistic plans to work from. We want you to say “This is clear and it makes sense.”
You have the right skills and capacity to get the work done. We want you to say “We can really do this”
Your staff are informed, engaged and channel their efforts in a way that supports your change. We want them to say “I care about this”
An effective acceleration plan, starts with a good understanding of the environment and context within which the change will happen. This ensures any planning is focused in the most impactful areas. To do this, we follow a 4 step process.
Confirm the vision and accountabilities associated with the change.
Determine which of the 13 potential factors are the key blockers to successful change.
Agree practical interventions that will realign, unblock and accelerate the change activity.
Embed changes into existing governance and support your implementation by guiding your leaders or finding you interim resources.
