Why this service?

This facilitated workshop is designed to support key stakeholders to develop and implement an effective strategy for organizational change capability, based on a Change Management maturity analysis, strategic objective and governance plan.

Who is it for?

  • Executive sponsors
  • Deployment leaders
  • Functional leaders
  • Key organizational influencers, e.g. Strategy Group, PMO

Strategic alignment workshop is not

  • A software application
  • An activity to define organization strategic objectives
  • An automatic filler of the organization gap between knowledge and ability

The problems with misalignment

A common mistake during change initiatives is to create a shared vision about Change Management too late in the process, when everyone will have already formulated their own position about the change.

Change Management is not linked to results and outcomes

That’s a misconception: Prosci®’s insights from Best Practices in Change Management show that projects are more likely to meet objectives, be on schedule and stay under budget if linked to results and outcomes.

Weak leadership and sponsorship

In theory, leaders and influencers agree on the value of Change Management, but are unprepared to sponsor and support it, due to a lack of alignment and poor clarity of purpose.

No change agenda, no common methodology

Without a clear strategy and a tactical plans to execute it, Change Management is just a different way of doing things, not a mindset driving progress.

The facilitator will guide you to document your plan for deployment of a change management capability, by leveraging a Change Management Maturity Model to assess your organization.

What's in it for you?

During the workshop you and your stakeholders will work together to create a set of deliverables that identify the current situation and define the organization's future state goal:

  • A shared vision for Change Management capability linked to your organizational strategy
  • The sequence of events to develop a Change Management capability
  • An understanding of the goals and objectives of building a Change Management capability
  • Analysis of the current state
  • A definition of the desired future state
  • Roles and responsibilities for key roles in the process
  • An elevator speech for why and how the organization will drive change capability
