Today’s organisations face a level of change that was inconceivable only a few years ago. Your business needs to serve increasingly sophisticated consumers, more agile competitors, and relentlessly exploit new mobile and digital technologies.
In order to thrive, every organisation must adapt, change and transform continuously. Bringing people with you on the journey, getting them to do things differently – that’s both the joy and the challenge of it.
Some change is relatively easy – it’s been done before and it can be done in much the same way again – it takes you to a new but familiar place. However, when change is more complex, more business-critical and affects more parts of the organisation, it feels riskier and far more challenging. This is real change and it takes you to a new place.
Are you facing real change?
Real change makes a defining difference to an organisation, taking it to a new and sustainable level of performance. It demands new ways of working. It challenges the way people think, act and behave. It takes a different kind of leadership and experience.
The general industry view is that 70% of real change fails. Billions of pounds are wasted every year. You may have witnessed some examples of significant change failures:
- The investments that are quietly written off
- The programme names that we’d rather no-one mentioned
- The opportunities thrown away
- The investments that were made and declared to be successful but didn’t actually deliver any tangible or sustained outcome.
It doesn’t have to be that way.
It is possible to deliver real change. No matter the size and complexity of your organisation, or the scale and ambition of your vision, you can make it happen. We’re here to help.
