We've Successfully Guided Change -- Many Times
Leading change is about more than cultivating a vision and then motivating
people toward that vision. It's also developing relevant, realistic and
flexible action plans. It's about getting the ownership and commitment of
all members of the organization. It's about ensuring those action plans
are implemented in a timely manner -- and continually learning at the same
time. We've guided that process many times with many clients over the years.
(A list if available from the link in the sidebar.)
We've Experienced Change -- From the Inside
There are few experiences that teach someone how to guide change than to
actually experience major change from within an organization. Many of our
consultants have been leaders and managers inside of organizations, and
have experienced what works -- and what doesn't -- when guiding change.
We can bring that learning to your organization.
We Understand All Aspects of Organizations
Many people assert that most organizational change projects fail. We believe
that one of the major reasons is that those who are leading the change often
don't understand the workings of the organization. Their plans too often
are delivered to the rest of the members of the organization without really
getting their input -- without really understanding what those members do.
We understand what they do. We understand Boards, the role of the Chief
Executive Officer, products and programs, marketing, personnel and finance.
We Still Understand Your Organization is Unique
There are many facets of organizations that are similar -- for example,
rules and regulations for governing Boards, best practices for marketing
and product development, accounting standards for how finances are monitored
and reported, and employment laws for how employees should be hired and
But each organization is unique in how its members make decisions and solve
problems. The values, perspectives and opinions of members on the organization
make it even more unique. We always start our projects by fully understanding
the organization and its operations -- by listening to its members to understand
their wishes, expectations and concerns about the project. That's a strong
requirement in any project for change if that project is to be truly successful.
