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 supervised.

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.
