Organisation models that were previously valid are beginning to become defunct.
We are facing an outlook of generalised change. We have transformed from being an industrial society into a knowledge society and this entails a major change in many aspects of our day-to-day reality.
Setting out the best strategy or benefitting from the best infrastructure and processes does not suffice unless the people responsible for delivering strategic initiatives and day-to-day operations are committed and motivated along these lines.
We at AddVANTE help you to develop the essential methods and capabilities needed to promote changes in the three basic aspects underpinning a smart organisation: people, the organisational culture and its means of relating internally and externally.
Key issues we address
Developing the essential capabilities needed to improve creativity and operational efficiency of your professionals and management team.
Organisational transformation through organisational efficiency, management of change and professional development.
Innovation and evolution strategy solutions that will help you to innovate in a continuous, cooperative and systematic manner.
Achieving greater operational skill through innovation.
Developing leadership models for the future of the organisation.
Improving communication by reinventing relations with clients.
Capacity to analyse and integrate a range of unconventional viewpoints to address problems.
To align ourselves with the goals of our clients we apply our own methodologies
which use new trends for management of constantly changing environments with solutions for innovation and development without interrupting day-to-day operations.
Our client experience enables us to align our approach with your company lending a new perspective, sharing your ambitions, working to understand your business circumstances and offering support in the primary strategic decisions affecting your human capital.
Unlocking cultural resistance
Distribution company with more than 25 direct public sales points with a history of success and continued growth lasting more than 45 years.
Owing to the recession, a fall in consumption and evidence that consumers were changing their patterns, while other competitors were being more dynamic to adapt to these changes, the company had been undergoing a major reduction in its market share.
Although the strategic plan carried out by the company suitably identified these challenges and put forward a host of initiatives needed, they were blocked in a de facto manner owing to lack of full conviction by the management and key members of the organisation.
In an internal meeting held by the management committee, one of the founders of the company ultimately said what many were thinking: “Things have always gone well to date and I honestly don't think it would be right to change anything. This situation is only temporary and we should solely wait until it has passed. Trying to face it will only generate further problems.”
Formed by three people, the AddVANTE team organised a number of workshops to identify the beliefs and fears leading to the cultural resistance to change and drew up a map of existing conflicts and the methodology to address them.
Keys to success
Aligning all executives and key staff in the company and establishing the swift, effective engagement of the changes needed with full success in terms of the targets set.
