Recent studies reveal that 75% - 90% of all implemented change processes are considered to be failures. Does this surprise us? No. So what are the reasons why such important tasks are handled in a way where failure is more probable than success? We hypothesize that the theories, methods, and techniques applied during these organizational developments are simply not appropriate for the concept of “change.” Maintaining untested and inaccurate assumptions about the transitioning elements in question can lead to disaster.
One prominent reason for failure is the assumption that change management is a sort of gravy, topping off a meal, or a change, upon its completion.
Failure also often results from changes being made to individual parts of a company without keeping in mind the bigger picture. Even the smallest of changes can have an impact on the overall organization.
Yet another common cause of failure stems from presuming organizational development processes can be influenced in the same way a machine can be repaired. Businesses hardly follow the laws of physics, and those implementing changes must do so with a firm understanding of the underlying intangible, entrepreneurial laws with which these developments correspond.
Using our instruments for development diagnostics, we support your change projects with goal-oriented analyses of your company-specific set of circumstances. Examining your currently stable initial situation prior to change allows us to precisely and cooperatively define the problems and necessary tasks. Together, we create a shared platform of understanding, serving as the starting point for the planning, implementation, and management of the change process.
We provide you with a framework for project and task operations sufficient for organizational development, further supporting company management in making important decisions. Change is not always easy, so it’s our job to advise you through the selection, design, and implementation of your change processes in order to make your organizational transition as smooth and secure as possible.
