How to energise your change project or program for success

Once your priority change projects and programs are clearly defined, it's time to move on an iterative journey of Leader Led Change, in order to successfully deliver each change initiative.

Project – program

Run your project or program efficiently

We developed an iterative journey to make sure that leaders lead and enablers enable. During the delivery of your project or program, 5 perspectives are continuously monitored to resolve barriers for change.

These perspectives are aggregated in our Transformation Project/Program Scan, a practical tool that:

  • enables teams, in simple language, to take those actions that ensure change sticks.
  • generates a mindset of continuous learning within your change project or program and accelerates the delivery of business impact.
  • empowers project and program teams to continuously work on both the rational and emotional side of change implementation.

Crack the nuts

As you will typically encounter obstacles along the way to deliver your projects and programs successfully, our scan helps you to identify which ‘nuts’ you have to crack.

It measures the energy profile of a project or program at hand, using the Leader Led Change approach with the five perspectives. The report indicates where you are currently gaining and draining energy.

“By using the energise for success approach to focus on organizational, project-based and individual readiness of all those involved, we were able to crack many nuts in the change process.”

When we started five years ago with ‘Advancing Energy Together’-strategy, we knew that we would only succeed if we could get the whole organization on board. And because everyone worldwide now speaks the same ‘language’, we are increasingly supportive of each other in this transition.
