Together we find solutions for future work.
In our experience, today’s businesses see an increasing focus on change. We want to work smarter and better. We strive to improve our efficiency, to do more with less. Work carried out as integrated teams are preferred in the functional silos. Everyone wants to increase revenue and attract the best talents.
The motivations are many, and so are the number of change projects businesses undertake. These projects often aim to improve digital technologies, people’s work, or the profession’s processes. A common challenge for these initiatives is the time to implement changes and the struggle to make changes stick. The change process may take a long time to create value, and lasting changes are hard to deliver.
Our approach handles these issues in a structured and straightforward way: Break down the project into smaller parts and let your people select some of them for implementation. You will never get things 100% correct the first time, so prioritize speed. In this way, you get feedback that is needed to improve further. The quality of the change increases with iterations, and new parts of the change project can be selected for implementation. It should be clear to your people what benefits they get from the changes. Showing the benefits is one of the best ways to ensure uptake. It is also an essential first step to leave a capability for change with the organization.
A clear strategy for implementing your change initiatives will go a long way. Still, it is often not the entire solution. For more than a decade, we have developed technology designed to help with the challenges surrounding changing the way you work.
Among these are making sure that people have the information they need to perform tasks, creating best practices, and helping people work in the same way. Perhaps most noticeable is the tools’ ability to make changes stick within an organization.
One of the areas where our approach and technology have been applied is within Integrated Operation Centres in Oil & Gas. A common goal for these projects has been to make the engineer’s working days proactive. Our client stories contain several examples where the operators have made millions of dollars on cost reductions and added revenue.
