April 11, 2011Understanding: Change Leadership

Change Leadership

Our goal is to help our clients achieve long-term, sustainable growth and profitability through continuous improvement and large-scale organizational change.

To that end, we provide a broad range of management consulting and training and development services designed to help our clients cope with and take advantage of the turbulence they face in the global marketplace

Change is the only constant in today’s operating environment. Being able to adapt and take advantage of rapidly changing circumstances – i.e., thrive in the midst of constant turbulence – is an absolute requirement for long-term success and sustainability.

  • A failure to act quickly leads to acceptance/tolerance of the status quo.
  • A failure to act smartly weakens credibility and leads to frustration and a desire to “return to the old days.”

We help our clients answer and then execute against these (and many more questions):

  • WHO will be an effective champion of the effort?
  • WHAT must change about the organization’s are systems, structures, processes, people practices, peoples’ skills and capabilities to achieve the results?
  • HOW will we build a coalition to support the change effort?
  • HOW do we create a series of quick wins that demonstrate progress and help engage others in the effort?
  • HOW will we assess progress?
  • HOW do we sustain and grow energy for change?
  • HOW do we deal with the inevitable roadblocks to sustaining the effort?

Our Role in Your Change Strategy
WWCG’s role is to act as “lead guide” for devising and implementing the overall change strategy. Our goal is to help our clients identify the priorities, assess alternative action plans and provide expertise and guidance when needed. Ultimately, however, we want to enable our clients to lead the change strategy themselves and not be permanently dependent upon us!
