Guide organisations and managers through change process
L&AD is your partner in change. During the past 25 years we gained expertise in accompanying organisations through change processes.
Why would a managing director or manager rely on professional assistance?
“We can handle it ourselves!” or “We just tell our people how to work from now on!” seems all too often no more than obvious.
“Panta rhei”… everything flows, is constantly moving. Supposedly a quote from Heraclitus. It applies more than ever to our present day organisations. Changes succeed each other faster and faster. Sometimes they are very radical, (mergers, takeovers, restructuring, reorganisations, …) sometimes misleadingly innocent (new boss, new informatics, different ways of working, moving, teleworking, lean management,…).
We see that about 2/3 of the changes blatantly fail or at least require considerably more time than foreseen to reach the expected results. Although the direct and indirect economic cost – or social cost in the administration – cannot be calculated, it is probably huge.
The reason for this failure is almost always a flagrant neglect of the “Human Factor”. The impact on those who have to implement the change or are confronted with it, is grossly underestimated, even with seemingly minor changes.
L&AD ensures that your budgeted investment for the change is and remains under control.
