The Issue

Changing workplace practices, behaviours and processes whilst business is in full flow is a challenge for any organisation.

Harnessing the right powerbase, engaging at the right level, competing for people’s time and being clear about why the change is necessary is critical to securing & sustaining lasting change. They are fundamental for a new change, for one that’s being rolled out and to address change that wasn’t done well.
