Knowing the influences on your organisation and feeling confident in deriving the right ideas -
this is what we do when defining a sound starting point.
How will the changes influence the company? Will the business be disrupted? What challenges will the employees face? Can the plans go wrong?
Let us take a close look at the system, understand the dependencies and take the right measures.
What is it that really drives your organisation? What helps drive your ideas and what are the impediments?
Culture is not easily decoded. Let us take a look behind the curtains to find the patterns.
We define the context in which your organisation is positioned in its respective environment. Finding out what the expectations are and which activities can be derived. Depending on your expectations the environment can be perceived beyond direct interactions. There are influences from society, technology and scientific research that could be interesting to analyse. The method we use is a combination of structured analysis and design thinking adapted to these requirements.
In any company that has evolved over time there will be many processes in place. Some will be in line with the purpose of the organisation, some with regulations and legal requirements. Some though, will just be there because of some assumptions or because someone thinks they are important. Some just survive because no one questions them. They might just be obsolete by now, or even worse entirely dysfunctional, thereby stalling the development of your company and your employees and siphoning energy away from your customers. How to find these processes? How to change them without jeopardising your business? With our systems analysis and design we uncover processes that are not focused on the purpose of your company and what purpose they serve, thus enabling you to derive insight for the most appropriate decisions.
CULTURE AND CLIMATE
Culture and Climate are two terms often mixed up. Culture has a huge influence on any change you want to initiate in your company. If underestimated, it can negatively influence the success of your projects and also change programs. The patterns of basic assumptions that are prevalent in your organisation are not easily uncovered. The method we use here is derived from Edgar H. Schein. Amongst others we analyse the gap between the way your organisation acts, how the processes are designed and the espoused values to find the real underlying patterns that drive your company.
