How It Works
Organizational strategy is not enough.
Let us help you implement change throughout your organization.
Practitioners of various approaches to Strategic Management Initiatives encounter resistance and failure within organizations because most approaches are initially met with resistance and skepticism. Frequently they end up as another neglected tool in the management toolkit. The problem is that organizations too often take what they can easily understand from these initiatives and implement those while ignoring the rest. When this happens, an imbalance occurs between management’s approach to organizational change and their approach to individual behavioral change. Management’s approach to organizational change is usually intellectual while dealing with behavioral change is emotional. Frequently behavioral change is so challenging that it is pushed aside for tomorrow. Somehow, tomorrow never comes and everyone happily gets caught up in the technical and mechanical changes.
In order to successfully tackle process driven initiatives, we need to acquire more than just an understanding of the processes. To overcome potential resistance, we need to have a vehicle for addressing attitudes, skills and tools for managing, leading and motivating.
Measurable Management® is not a replacement for other initiatives but can be more aptly described as the missing ingredient. It becomes the vehicle to maximize the benefits from these initiatives and runs in tandem with them actually reducing the turmoil, changing the attitudes and oiling the mechanics of implementation. Not only will it run more smoothly, but its performance will be sustained for a much longer period.
The Lean approach for example, prescribes that management must see its role in a different light and be willing to teach, coach and step aside to observe as progress unfolds before their eyes. How many organizations can truly say that they have confidence in their management personnel to carry out these functions to a successful level? Measurable Management® provides not only the mechanism for implementation that such approaches need but also the method for delivering real outcomes in both organizational change as well as change in individual attitudes. This program will compliment and not conflict with other initiatives.
The various approaches to Strategic Management never come cheap. Significant investments must be made by organizations striving to improve and successfully implement their strategy. Measurable Management® ensures that the returns on these significant investments are maximized. Management’s awareness of the value of simplifying the approach to problem solving is the first step toward implementing process improvement and change management.
