Our Keystone offering delivers full lifecycle Organizational Change Management (OCM) skills for those groups needing strategic change management beyond the particular initiative and at the level of the organization. In order to consider the full organization and what needs to change, we provide a framework for managing the effect of new business processes, changes in organizational structure or cultural changes within an enterprise, including our Capstone change activities.
Our framework is designed to integrate the strategic, social and technical aspects of “big change” and prepare organizations to adopt and implement fundamental, cross-functional and radical organizational changes. We include, as part of the organizational change approach, culture, policies, procedures, the physical environment as well as employee roles and responsibilities. In this way, we build change capability in the organization with change processes consistently and effectively applied to all organizational initiatives for group success. We discover that, with a solid organizational change framework, people embrace change more quickly as the organization becomes more responsive to internal and external factors that affect it. Technology is more quickly adopted while systems better enable the organization to deliver – and sustain – its change. Ultimately, organizations can acquire navigation or the ability to manage change over the long term and continuously improve over changing contexts, inside and outside the organization.
This framework considers the following as key components of successful organizational change:
• Organizational Strategy
• Organizational Structure
• Organizational Values
• Benefits Realization
• People Planning
• Process Design
• Systems Integration & Implementation
• Organizational Navigation & Change Sustainment
Our Capstone service enables organizations to deliver on its key operational and strategic objectives through Business Transformation. At Connexus, business transformation is about creating and supporting organizational shift: the ability of an organization to consistently deliver on its most important operational and strategic efforts and deliver corporate results. Simply, we describe good transformation as “Right Work, Right People, Right Results”.
Our business transformation model includes both a Transformation Framework and a Transformation Network wherein organizational strategy is delivered through various practices, pillars, and partners throughout the organization through a lifecycle of activities, from engagement to transformation and through to optimization.
Where strategy is understood, a portfolio of work can be created to support those objectives at the level of corporate results. This work can be measured against benefits that, when tactically realized through the projects and programs important for an organization to execute, connect to desired organizational outcomes.
A feedback loop is created to allow decisions, communication, and collaboration to move top to bottom in the organization – and bottom to top. Specific organizational roles and skills are accessed to enable the framework to function and deliver on the portfolio of effort that will essentially move – or transform – the organization from its current state and toward its desired state.
