What we do
In many industries a company’s ability to change is becoming its license to operate. New technology, new distribution channels, off-shoring, changes in buyer behavior – just to name a few things – impact your business at multiple levels. Frequent and significant changes are required for you to grow and prosper for the long haul.
Soundview Consulting Group can help you execute changes successfully by:
• Focusing on change initiatives that are fully aligned with the company’s vision and strategy
• Ensuring that employees and managers are engaged, committed and ready for change
• Aligning company culture with change initiatives
• Making changes sustainable
Selecting the right change initiatives
Many companies initiate more projects than they can execute, thereby slowing down changes and losing potential benefits. Soundview can help you assess your execution capacity and im-plement consistent prioritization mechanisms, ensuring that you execute the right change initia-tives in the right order of priority.
Preparation for change
For a change project to succeed, you need to prepare your or-ganization. The employees need to know what will happen and why, and they need to buy into it. Soundview assist you in commu-nicating change initiatives effi-ciently, engaging your managers and employees, and working with company culture so it ends up supporting changes instead of working against them.
Building the right competencies in the organization is a pre-requisite for changes to become successful. Often training needs go well beyond the classroom. How to train and how much to invest in training will depend on the nature of the change and the people you need to train. Soundview can help you set up the right suite of training acti-vities and coach your trainers to ensure the best possible out-come of their efforts.
Often changes evaporate shortly after deployment. In the short term companies miss out on the benefits of the change. In the long term it impacts company culture and makes any change more diffi-cult to execute. Soundview can help you design and implement structures and processes that will maintain focus on changes until they have become the new normal.
