How to lead change
What leaders really do to lead change
Is the role of the change leader becoming less relevant, when more people become involved at an earlier stage? We do not think so. In fact, we believe that the role of good leadership is probably more important than ever. Leaders who give direction, and who incarnate the desired change with authenticity and integrity.
How to succeed with change
Implement has investigated whether CEOs use a set framework to guide them when driving change. The general conclusion was that they do not. One notable exception was that 15-20% of the CEOs stated that they use Lean and "continuous improvement" as basic models when working with change.
The CEO’s viewpoint on leading change
As advisors in a Nordic management consulting firm, we work with a large number of business leaders every year, helping them develop and improve their organisations and businesses. The challenges and possibilities facing these leaders come in many different shapes, but we find that there is one constant – it all involves change.
Strategy as a driver of real change and effect
The world has become more dynamic, complex, and globally connected, and organisations are becoming more and more knowledge-intensive. This makes strategic capability a key driver of long-term performance and value creation.
We believe that people support what they create. Promoting engagement, understanding and commitment will not only ensure the well-being of your staff, it will guarantee your change project’s success.
Through clear communication and fast implementation, you will increase your change success rate.
Management team support
An effective management team is vital when dealing with change. That is why developing your strengths as a team is so important before you embark on a large change initiative.
During change initiatives, it is important for organisations to recognise that their managers are facing different challenges depending on their individual experience and abilities. Change coaching gives managers the individual support they need.
Getting support from the whole organisation during major change is difficult. By making employees the agents of change and involving them in the change dialogue will make the transition easier.
Change management training
By putting your change agents through the change management training, you will ensure they have effective tools that will support them (and the rest of your organisation) in the implementation process.
