Change really is the only constant
With CHANGE, comes disruption:
1. dis·rupt \dis-ˈrəpt\
a : to break apart
b : to throw into disorder
2. : to interrupt the normal course or unity of
When your organization undertakes projects or initiatives to improve performance, seize opportunities or address key issues, those projects often initiate change: to processes, job roles, organizational structures and types and uses of technology.
Once a decision to change is reached, it is the employees of your organization who ultimately have to change how or what they do in their jobs to bring about this new way of doing. If these individuals are unsuccessful in their personal transitions—if they don’t embrace and learn a new way of working—the initiative will fail.
If, however, employees learn to embrace and adopt changes required by the initiative, it will deliver, and often exceed, the expected results. Anticipating and managing change can become a core competency within the enterprise. This is the process of Adaptive Growth that resides at the heart of successful organizations. It's in their DNA.
When the reality of change impacts you and your team, the application of proven methodologies by professional practitioners can make all the difference.
Short-term, or "one-off" initiatives, to become more efficient and keep pace with the competition by definition, are not conducive to long-term behavioral change. True, it’s simpler and faster to execute individual efficiency initiatives—such as cost reduction in the distribution network—and a focused effort can produce clear bottom-line gains. But where the singularly focused initiative falls short is in producing the desired effect of achieving similar efficiencies across all functions and maintaining them over time. To achieve lasting results, organizations have to take a holistic approach to building an organizational efficiency strategy that will adapt to the ever-changing landscape and position your team to sustain long-term change.
Adaptive Growth Strategies is your long-term solutions partner.
PROCESS DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENT
Is it a chicken or an egg?
Effective business changes often rely on relevant data to support the call to action. Many times this data resides in terms of sales revenue, fixed expenses and competitive landscape, and rightly so. What may be often overlooked, however, are the data regarding the skills and aptitude of the people managing the processes that drive revenue, expenses and go-to-market strategies.
Adaptive Growth Strategies looks at process improvement through a “people-first” lens. In a world that will continue to automate, people will become more important as the critical solutions providers to issues that threaten organizational efficiency. Organizations have the opportunity to optimize technological innovation in process efficiencies through maximizing the people side of their enterprise. When people work synergistically with technology, over-engineered processes are a thing of the past.
Let Adaptive Growth Strategies help you design the best processes for your business needs.
