Helping you improve the way you work
In our experience, today’s business environment sees 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 to the functional silos, and we want to increase revenue and attract talent.
The motivations are many and so are the number of change projects that businesses undertake. These projects often aim to make improvements within digital technologies, how people work and processes. Common challenges, for these initiatives, are the time it takes for changes to be implemented and hence the time to create value, the level of uptake in the organization, and finally, how the changes are maintained in the organization. Especially after the initial buzz has faded.
Our approach handles these issues in a structured and simple way. Break down the project in 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, which is needed to further improve. 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 important first step to leave a capability for change with the organization.
A clear strategy for how to implement your change initiatives will get you a long way, but 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 has 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.
