Why Change Management Consulting?
Change processes often produce resistance among employees. The familiar and the tried and tested are to be abandoned for something unknown or new.
This is where many companies fail:
Lack of experience:
By careless proceeding you produce resistances with coworkers and high-level personnel, which could be actually avoided with skill and experience.
The goals and the necessity is not clear to all involved. It needs a clear “change story” – well crafted and perfectly conveyed.
Really the best solution?
What to do if employees do not believe in the “change story” – despite all reasoning and communication? Do you just have a “communication problem” or possibly not the best solution after all?
Resistors are not addressed:
Can you turn resistance into a productive force for the change process?
Which experiences has the workforce had with previous change processes?
“Clinging to habits”, “not invented here” syndrome, “historically grown” staffing, an unfavorable leadership culture – the more complexity you have, the more likely an experienced change management consultancy will make a tangible difference.
Lack of change dramaturgy:
Especially in complex situations, a sophisticated and excellently executed sequence of measures and “dramaturgical tricks” is needed (we call this an effective “change architecture”).
Inadequate project management:
A good plan is no substitute for excellent execution….
Managers not sufficiently qualified:
Of course, you can fully rely on us as experienced consultants. But if your management also knows why we do things the way we do, and which mistakes to avoid in change management, it doesn’t hurt (you learn this in our change management training, among other things).
How can you engage, involve and inspire your employees and managers? How can resistance be transformed into productive forces for change?
Our approach as external change-management consultants
In change management consulting, we usually start from scratch: we listen and first form our own independent picture.
Are you steering in the right direction, is the strategy coherent and comprehensible?
Is the “story” plausible and appealing, are there any unanswered questions?
What measures are planned so far? Do they fit and harmonise together? Is the dramaturgy right?
Working with resistors:
What are the visible and hidden reactions to the change project? Which stakeholders are there – and how would they have to be adequately informed, involved, and involved?
Engage and inspire leaders within the process:
How does the management assess the planned change? Which are the “forces of resistance” that need to be dealt with?
Qualify Change Agents:
We can do effective “change,” but we’ll be gone eventually. So your team should learn how to proceed once we are gone (in this and future change-projects).
Agile Change Management:
Good planning is important, quick adaptation to acute developments is even more important. Therefore, we work in agile change management mode right from the start. And we will teach you and your staff the basics – and cutting edge change-know-how.
If you read it carefully, you will have already recognized some of the “pitfalls” in change management. We know these and more (not to mention just about all of them) – and save our clients from all the mistakes others have been unfortunate enough to make.
