Major Change InitiativeMajor change initiatives like mergers, acquisitions, restructuring, family succession, privatization, downsizing or fundamental strategy shifts are often characterized by their importance for the organization, the high level of anxiety of personnel, and the need for speed. Because they are so difficult, many of them fail to produce long-term success. According to KPMG, approximately 70% of cross-border acquisitions fail to add real business value. On the other hand, many successful change or integration efforts tend to have two things in common:
- The attention placed on “soft factors” is as significant as the attention placed on the business case.
- A “Whole System” approach is applied.
Our integral approach focuses on working with the key change initiators to support them in the implementation of the two success factors above. Goals are a higher success rate and more effective processes to reduce the negative impact on employees, clients and suppliers.
Major change initiatives are different in their goals and scope. Our approach focuses on the role-model behavior of key individuals or teams e.g. CEO, executive team, merger team leader, due diligence team, a holistic approach, and the integration of the cultural aspects in the process.
All elements of “global executive coaching”, "executive team coaching", "corporate culture transformation" and "culture measurement" can be applied to this topic, depending on the specific situation.
The facilitation takes place in English or German. Several coaches, facilitators, trainers and consultants from different global locations can be involved.
