Transformation &
Change Management

Our times are characterized by constant pressure for change, high complexity and disruptive markets. In this environment it is an increasing challenge for enterprises to stay profitable. A new approach is needed in order to survive on the market. Our experience has shown that the potential for creating ideas for innovative solutions exists within companies themselves. However, these ideas are often either stifled or their implementation fails. This is where we come in. We support companies in implementing their creative ideas successfully and sustainably. Thus, they can be highly performing and successful in future, too. 

Our approach

​Specialist and technical know-how are unequivocally very important in times of digitalization. Today, more than ever, the success of every project depends on the commitment of the people involved. They can decide whether they are prepared to engage their potentials for the cause "change" or not. Here, Change Management starts with supporting management as well as the employees in using their potentials and abilities and thus making them a MOTOR of change. This is achieved  throuhg focussed adaptation of the four environmental factors affecting the employees: orientation, technology, organisation, and regulations.

 

  1. Orientation must be given and should be communicated (vision, priority, coalition)

  2. Technology and human must harmonize with each other and complete each other.

  3. Organisational structures have to be designed in such a way that they promote and not hamper.

  4. Regulations have to be designed in such a way that they create a productive working culture

Change Communication

How to use communication in a targeted fashion.

Many change projects fail due to missing or wrong communication. In times of constant change a fast, complete, and unbroken communication is a vital success factor for your projects. In change processes the deliberate steering of communication can maximise your employees´ focussing on tasks, create a feeling of security among all involved, and enable you to identify and avoid conflicts at an early stage. Establishing a two-dimensional communication process is a crucial success factor in modern change communication. It is not only about passing on information, but also about giving feedback. 

 
 

Your challenges

  • Are you interested in Gamification?

  • Do you  want to make available a new method for sustainably learn new content or processes to your employees?

  • Is it time to revolutionize teams and subjects by means of integrating game elements? 

To rekindle your employees´ motivation, to offer them new perspectives, and to make sustainable learning possible: With many years of experience in the field of Gamification we show you new perspectives, develop suitable solutions, and accompany you on this exciting journey. 

Gamification

Learning made easy

PowerPoint-charts, trainings, e-mails - Traditional ways of communication and learning often seem to be boring and show now lasting effect on the target group. The solution to the problem is gamification. The integration of game elements motivates people intrinsically to deal intensively and in a new way with a subject and to actively reflect about the experiences made. Thus, acquired knowledge is anchored sustainably. Abstract processes can be experienced in a hands-on way. Gamification is not only suitable for learning new content, but also to achieve changes in behaviour, to get a new point of view on complex subjects, or to easily increase employees´ performance. 

Your challenges

  • Is it important for you to reach an objective understanding of your existing culture?

  • Do you want to make your corporate culture more sustainable and more attractive?

  • You are not sure how something being so multi-facetted, complex and quite intangible like corporate culture can be changed successfully?

 

Corporate culture can be both the greatest impediment or the strongest catalyst for success and progress in your company. We analyse your corporate culture, develop a suitable culture for your company together with you and accompany you in the long-term anchoring. Let us work together to prevent culture from eating strategy for breakfast in your company. 

 

Cultural Change

Culture should no longer eat strategy for breakfast in your company

"A developing company needs something like a cultural revolution every fifteen or twenty years“ (Alfred Herrhausen). This was true a couple of decades ago and has become even more relevant today against the background of permanent and radical changes in the market. Corporate culture is a central factor concerning adaptability and long-term success. It is decisive for your employees’ contentment and willingness to perform. Corporate culture determines whether and how formalised and not formalised processes are adhered to.

 

Your challenges

  • Do you want to want to develop a mission statement together with your employees which is supported by all?

  • Is it time to redesign or further develop your mission satement due  to significant changes?

  • Should your mission statement be the catalyst for your employees´ intrinsic motivation?

By means of interactive formats we develop your specific mission statement together with you . In combination with our communication expertise we devise an adapted commuciation strategy. Thus, a lasting anchoring of the mission statement is ensured and it is made tangible for your employees.

Mission Statement

Developing a mission statement for your company

Who are we? What are our principles and basic values? What target state do we strive for? A functioning guiding principle is the answer to these questions. It presents a framework which gives your employees orientation, a common self-conception, and a feeling of togetherness. A working guiding principle can fulfil important purposes not only within but also outside of your organisation: It conveys a fundamental image of your organisation to customers, business partners, and potential applicants. It is the figurehead of your company, too.

 

Every company provides its staff with a comprehensive kit full of various tools, systems, and processes. This constitutes a potential which can only be made advantage of by sufficiently qualifying your employees. Moreover, the ever changing environment necessitates qualifying your staff for new processes, systems, and situations. Anchoring newly gained knowledge sustainably presents a challenge for companies which can only be mastered by an innovative approach. 

Your challenges

  • Are you implementing new processes, systems, or tools?

  • Do you need a comprehensive and efficent qualification strategy for your company? 

  • Is it important for you, to support your employees in the best way possible concering the use of  new applications and tools?

We unterstand the challenges you are facing and we suport you in the creation of the training material - from ist strategic conception to ist concrete implementation. In order to make the newly gained knowledge sustainable we develop methods which are tangible and can be experienced, and thus appeal to the brain, heart, and hand of those to be qualified. Make your employees fit for present and future tasks!

Your challenges

  • You want to learn how to better deal with resitances?

  • You are planning a change in your company which could entail resistances?

  • You are currently fighting against resistances and you feel like tilting windmills?

  • You want to integrate the various perspectives of your stakeholders?

 

With a fresh view from outside and our long-term experience we gladly support you in dealing with resistances and to transform them into a motor for change. Based on a comprehensive stakeholder analysis we systematically categorize cluster of resistances and design a detailed roadmap.  Let us work together in turning these great ideas into reality!

 

Resistance Management

Skilful handling of resistances

Every change, no matter how great the idea behind, is accompanied by resistances. It is often said that projects fail due to resistances. However, our experience has shown that projects do not fail due to resistances but due to wrong handling of the resistances. This is hardly surprising – resistance against changes is a complex phenomenon for which countless individual reasons do exist. A phenomenon which manifests itself in many different ways. Sometimes resistances can be avoided from the very beginning by means of a suitable change strategy. Nevertheless, every change constitutes an adjustment for the employees of an organisation and entails fears and uncertainties. – Therefore, resistance is quite natural. The real task is to skilfully master resistances and to use them productively.

Team Set-up

How to set up a successful team

Good teamwork increases productivity, the quality of work, innovative capacity - and thus your competitiveness. In a world characterized by hard competition excellent teams are critical success factors. However, a group of employees is not per se a team. Accompanying the setting up intensively is decisive for the creation of a team. For this both are essential hard factors such as team structure, assignment of tasks and roles, and soft factors such as strength orientation and common values.

 

Your challenges

  • Do you want to to develop a heterogenous group of employees into a team?

  • Do you want to discover your team´s strengths and deploy them target-oriented?

  • Do you wonder how to improve the present cooperation within the team?

  • Does a conflict exist in your team you want to solve?

 

Together with you, we analyse the action required for your team development and work out adequate measures. In doing so we rely on interaction, perceptible changes, involvement of all team members, and common further development. Allow us to support you in creating a highly performing team!

 

Team Development

Developing of highly performing teams

Only a highly performing team succeeds in solving demanding tasks in a creative and at the same time goal-oriented way. As the team members trust in each other they can talk about challenges, thematise weaknesses, and solve conflicts in an honest and constructive way. Strength-oriented deployment of employees, a clear team vision as well as an unambiguous role and task definition form the basis for a high performance team.
