DESIGN AND MONITORING OF CHANGE PROCESSE

Design

Markets are changing rapidly, resources are scarce, qualified employees are becoming increasingly difficult to find in the labor market, new technologies offer opportunities if you use your staff well ... - We live in a period of continuous change and the pace is accelerating. In many cases employees can no longer keep up with the pace of change. Therefore it is crucial to change the way changes are implemented. We need independent employees with initiative who do not "bear" change but rather shape it.

We support you in the design and implementation of change projects:

EXAMPLES OF TYPICAL CHANGE PROJECTS:

  • Cultural Change – Establishing attitudes in the organization that are essential for business success (e.g., an orientation of productivity, flexibility, teamwork)
  • Restructuring of the organizational structure in combination with personnel rearrangements
  • Establishing a modern understanding of leadership

OUR SERVICES:

  • Design of change processes (master plan)
  • Selection of change ambassadors or of a change team
  • Monitoring the process and expert support for the internal project manager
  • Facilitation of workshops and events
  • Implementation of large group methods such as open space
  • Support in securing the sustainability of achieved changes

 

DESIGN OF PERFORMANCE BASED REMUNERATION SYSTEMS

The implementation of performance based remuneration systems is a sensitve topic and demands careful planning and an open communication strategy. Even then it can happen, that during the implementation period the performance is decreasing, but afterwards it is recovering again.

It is important to differentiate between different target groups:

  • Top management
  • Middle management
  • Lower management

Dependent on the target group, the calculation method and the legal setup can vary. The range lasts from simple shemes of provision till complex forms of stock options or virtual company participations (e.g. in not public listed companies where no real change in ownership is intended).

Fo all models the following issues should be covered or fulfilled:

  • Low number of indicators
  • Easy recording of the indicator
  • Transparency
  • Interference of the targets
  • Achievability
