and no one used them? What if you streamlined your processes and optimized your workforce — and but no one knew how to follow them? What if your information management policies didn’t fit with your corporate culture – and were ignored?
These aren’t hypothetical scenarios. They are very real outcomes for businesses without a sustained and intentional approach to managing change.
Our Prosci® -certified consultants use strategic communication, training, and influence to yield better results for the people leading and experiencing change. Throughout implementation and beyond, our methods guide your people to a new and better way of working, maximizing adoption across the organization.
Because a “one-size-fits-all” approach is not effective, our practitioners identify change characteristics, assess your organization for cultural readiness, and evaluate the impact.
All change begins with an awareness or the need to do something different – our approach to developing targeted messages, identifying communication channels, and defining the timing of key messages all support and build on that awareness journey.
Whether you are designing a new function, or looking to optimize the processes with the staff you have, our experts can help you design your organization to align that structure with your business priorities and mission.
Our experts identify specific tactics to engage stakeholders and specific areas where resistance is expected, then put plans in place to manage that resistance.
Our approach to a holistic training program provides the foundation for building knowledge about the change, and the desired skills to succeed in the future.
Because people have a natural tendency to return to old habits, we help you achieve actual results of realized change through the often-neglected steps of support and reinforcement.
A well thought out strategy and execution plan considers the culture, size and impact of what’s changing, and tools to enable management to support and sponsor behavior change.
We prepare leaders to build support and manage resistance to change initiatives through targeted coaching plans and communications designed to facilitate cohesive cascading messaging.
As a matter of the bottom line. The return on investment you earn on your project or initiative is directly tied to the number of people who successfully adopt the change. A clearly defined change management plan will help increase the chances that employees will successfully make the transition to the new way of doing business.
