People, Adoption, & Change Services

In the past, companies used to compete on operational execution and driving efficiency to out-maneuver the competition through better manufacturing capabilities, higher-quality products, and better/faster distribution networks. Now, thanks to emerging business models built on technology, those capabilities are table stakes. Since the economic reboot of 2008, the new source of competitive advantage is customer-centricity: deeply understanding your customers’ needs and fulfilling those needs better than anyone else. 

The challenge that many leaders face today is their company has out dated processes, lack of time to create something new, and a poorly aligned, fragmented technology system that impedes agility. They struggle to "get it all to work together."  The often over-looked component?  People and change management.  When implementing something new, people often have to change how they work. That's where we come in.

Our clients have been successful with:

 

  1. Clarifying, streamlining, and simplifying work based on both a top-down definition of requirements and a bottom-up view of reality.

  2. Ensuring compliance, consistency, and clarity during implementations of strategy and/or technology that changes how people work.

  3. Change management communication plans and management coordination during times of change. 

  4. Alignment of new programs designed to benefit, up-skill, or equip people with what they need to be successful in the "new way of working."

  5. Successfully implementing new cross-functional work technologies (ie., Workfront, Podio, and other platforms) to help achieve more collaborative, agile, and value-added knowledge work.
