We help you to test out and adopt emerging, innovative management systems such as systems derived from Theory U, holacracy and the Teal model.
How can you adapt your company to a world that is becoming more complex? Do you have to learn to “do more with less”? Do you always have to “do better”? This race to the bottom seems to have hit the buffers. Commentators are saying that “there is something wrong with today’s organizations.” The evidence of this is a reduction in staff members’ commitment and an unprecedented level of stress within management teams.
Does the future look hopeless? No! There is a way of “doing things differently.”
In organizations that have been able to set out a clear and genuinely shared vision, a new trend is emerging to promote a management system based on trust and empowerment. Within these organizations there seem to be fewer short-term economic objectives. Even so, we can see that their performance often surpasses that of their competitors.
Despite the appeal of these models, few companies these days are managing to overcome the obstacles to a transformation of their managerial practices.
We can help you with precisely this. We have been involved in ambitious initiatives in several European countries since the emergence of this trend. It is an emerging area that is far from being firmed up and is still experimental but we are lucky to be one step ahead.
Are you interested in these approaches? Do you think they might add value to your organization?
Our experience shows that the shortest route to success in this area is practical application, even if on a modest scale, and experimentation. We have run labs and pilot experiments. Often, these experiences, although limited, have had such an impact that the organization has naturally applied its principles more widely.
