People need to operate differently (their mindsets, routines and behaviors) to achieve new outcomes. A change strategy defines the ways of working required to unlock performance gains. The development process begins by gaining a thorough understanding of current practices and the organizational guidelines that support them. This is followed by mapping and the adjustments to ways of thinking, acting and behaving necessary to unlock performance gains.
Once “From – to” destinations are set, we develop a plan or roadmap to transition from current to future ways of working. One of the challenges of transitioning to new ways of working is that the people who need to change are running the business. The plan or roadmap for the transition needs to balance the demands of delivering short-term results and the conditions required for future longer-term performance.
There are three types of activities that enable the adoption of new ways of working: communication, training and engagement. We work with internal teams to develop and sequence these activities and guide leaders and their teams as they implement them.
