These three areas, working in concert, can transform your organization into one that is ready to handle disruptive change and leap into the future of work.

We also provide change management services for individual projects, coach executives on change sponsorship, and offer a program for kickstarting your journey into the Future of Work. While our combined services were developed to transform the way your organization handles change, we can provide them separately or in packaged offerings to meet your unique needs. We can work in partnership with in-house organizational change management staff, and/or bring in additional outside help as-needed from our extended network of subject matter experts.

Elevate and Anticipate Change

  • Client Need:

Get ahead of disruptive change; turn it from a risk into an opportunity. 

  • The Shift:

Change your perspective on change. Elevate it to a strategic concern and apply strategic foresight to anticipate your organization’s future.

  • Solution: 

The best way to prepare for the future is to build the future you want. For an organization to do that it needs to have a clearer picture of what's on the horizon within its industry, the impact of “mega-trends” on the environment it operates in, and the internal changes that may be needed due to these impacts.

Traditional strategic planning alone is not effective at doing this in today’s accelerated age. What’s needed is to integrate change (an
d its potential impacts) into the strategic planning process, treating it as an element of risk management. Doing this requires a more fluid approach that considers a range of scenarios so that you are prepared for the various paths that may unfold, along with looking at change holistically across your entire organization. Incorporating the use of strategic foresight and change-focused risk tools into your planning will enable you to identify and proactively respond to your organization’s emerging future.
