New business opportunities, a superior product from a competitor or changes to the global or regional economy (e.g., COVID-19) challenge us daily to respond. in fast-paced environments, our ability to respond is crucial.
Too often, our Change Management dies off due to inertia in leadership and teams not being able to respond quickly enough. It is time to set up organizations to change themselves automatically.
Challenges for Change Management Projects
No visible progress
Organizations manage their change only locally. Changes made to individual teams have no visible impact on the organizational performance.
People resist change
Often, we believe that our change management is hindered by people, who resist change. But people do not resist change, they resist being changed. Focus on an environment, that fosters change.
Lack of adapting
Organizations made a transformation plan and hired coaches to help us execute the plan. If changes are needed, they change their plans often too late.
Change sustainably and agile
We support you to make any change initiative effective by using a Change Management approach, which does not impose change on others, but supports your team to drive the change.
Organizational or even only local change are often strategy decisions with substantial investments. Organizations want to know their return on this investment. Traditionally, we would therefore create a solid plan with milestones showing us, how we can get there. But it is with any project: The more complex it is, the less predictable it becomes.
Our approach to change management supports teams and organizations in making sense of complex environments, where it is hard or even impossible to predict the outcome. Instead of planning meticulously your change for each possible outcome, we support you to use the iterative and incremental approach of Agile to discover the future.
