Organisation and Change Management Consultancy

 

We work closely with executive and management teams on a wide range of business and organisation change projects. We  design, organise and facilitate interventions that help leadership teams clarify and define the required objectives, practices, behaviours and actions plans needed to ensure their organisations continue to succeed in today’s highly competitive world.

Our experience of working with many global, blue chip businesses means we are well equipped to manage complex change projects and assignments. We draw upon our knowledge of what works – and what doesn’t work. We combine that knowledge with proven methodologies to deliver an approach that really meets our clients needs.

We are highly experienced in facilitating organisation initiatives and regular manage events that comprise anything from 10-500 participants. We have been consistently tested in highly demanding businesses and in many multi-cultural environments. These experiences mean we are able to deliver real value to our clients.

Below are listed some examples of our consultancy and project work

Resolution of Issues in an Outsourcing Scenario

Global Fund Management Group

Following the emergence of considerable operational issues and conflicts in a major outsourcing scenario we were asked to develop an event to bring the two interested groups together to work through a range of complex issues and agree a more constructive way forward.

Given the background to the issues and the nature of the ongoing relationships it was essential that the intervention produced a positive outcome. We worked with the key stakeholders to identify issues and major concerns and then developed a highly interactive two day workshop to expose the underlying concerns and work on developing a range of solutions.

Business and Organisation Structure Review

Global Learning Organisation

Following the appointment of new CEO this organisation required a totally new business strategy and organisation structure. We helped to design several major workshops over a 12 month period that brought together the US and European leadership groups. The new strategy required high levels of organisational change and our work involved surfacing considerable resistance on the part of many business leaders.

Global Foods Group

Designed a series of workshops to bring together a wide range of major business concerns in a complex business arrangement and contractual situation. Through interviewing numerous parties on both sides of the relationship we were able to identify a number of critical issues. These issues were then addressed in a series of major workshops and project teams. Our intervention helped to rebuild the working relationship and climate between the two parties
