Most businesses and their internal management teams are not able to bring together the time, focus, and skill set to assess and implement effective change or digital transformation. Effective change management requires focus. It takes a comprehensive understanding of how change happens and deep experience. It takes time, leadership, business, and communications that are integrated and implemented to have change become part of the culture.
How We Start the Process of Change Management
Change takes a lot of planning and communication. To start, we do a change Readiness Assessment Evaluating & Learning (REAL) to surface and communicate the factors that will make any change a success. We then design a customized plan of action for going through the transition that will work best for your organization.
Each organization, and the teams inside it, are unique and so the scope of transformation will be different for each company’s specific needs. Even as all people share a critical dependence on similar organic functions such as circulatory and nervous systems but every individual is unique – so it is with businesses and their underlying systems and team dynamics. Workforce requirements and expectations have changed. Success is truly tied to clarity, competency, and the shifting dynamics of decision authority and information flows.
Experience in the complex stakeholder interplay required for change and a "roll-up your sleeves" approach drive your high-priority projects to successful completion. As does the expertise to mentor your people through the process of adopting new ways of working.
Our plan is a 5 step process: Assess, Educate, Align, Communicate, Reinforce
Leverage Your Assets for Change and Innovation Culture
Effective change management and revenue innovation require the ability to transcend existing internal mindsets, organizational divisions, and sub-optimal thinking to see beyond perceived limitations and what constitutes a “product” vs an asset from which that your company can earn revenue. Our experience is your competitive advantage.
Identifying assets that have revenue potential and bringing them to commercialization requires bringing several product development skills together. Often both internal and external.
