Change Management

Contrary to general beleive, organisations do change, People do. ​

When your organization undertakes projects or initiatives to improve performance, seize opportunities or address key issues, they often require changes; changes to processes, job roles, organizational structures and types and uses of technology.

 

However, it is actually the employees of your organization who have to ultimately change how they do their jobs. If these individuals are unsuccessful in their personal transitions, if they don’t embrace and learn a new way of working, the initiative will fail. If employees embrace and adopt changes required by the initiative, it will deliver the expected results.

For many organizations, a five-year strategic plan—or even a three-year one—is a thing of the past. Organizations that once enjoyed the luxury of time to test and roll out new initiatives must now do so in a compressed period while competing with tens or hundreds of existing (and often incomplete) initiatives.

 

In this dynamic and fast-paced environment, competitive advantage will accrue to companies with the ability to set new priorities and implement new processes quicker than their rivals.

Lean Transformation

We transform organizations by creating together a new way of working. 

Cotiam believes that lean is much more than a “toolkit” or a methodology for removing waste.

We completely transform how companies operate, focusing in particular on creating a culture of continuous improvement and a new leadership approach. We instill new routines and behaviors to unleash leadership capacity.

 

A true lean management enterprise feels like a very unique place to work:

  • Employees at all levels understand the organization’s vision and translate it into action every day,

  • Managers develop people with the expectation that everyone should contribute to the best of their ability.

  • Everyone sees problems as opportunities to make the business stronger.

  • Employees understand their customers, and seek to meet their needs as efficiently as possible.

These “management disciplines” correlate to tangible skills and ways of working that people and organizations can learn—which, over time, constitute a new company culture: how people behave and think.

Cotiam's sourcing and consulting teams can work with you to identify your needs, then provision the right consultants to adresse it 

Digital Transformation

Digital transformation = Business transformation through digital technologies. 

Digital transformation is the integration of digital technology into all areas of a business, fundamentally changing how you operate and deliver value to customers. It's also a cultural change that requires organizations to continually challenge the status quo, experiment, and get comfortable with failure.

Digital transformation is imperative for all businesses, from the small to the enterprise. That message comes through loud and clear from seemingly every keynote, panel discussion, article, or study related to how businesses can remain competitive and relevant as the world becomes increasingly digital. What's not clear to many business leaders is what digital transformation means

Digital transformation is a key initiative for enterprises that want to reach new customers and offer greater value via technology. Changing user expectations, new modes of engagement, and the need to improve responsiveness are the main factors driving companies to update outdated processes and develop new applications as part of a digital transformation strategy.

But in order to deliver on the promise of digital transformation, organizations must also modernize their infrastructure to support speed, scale, and change. Traditional monitoring and alerting strategies simply don’t provide the visibility and agility needed to operate in today’s elastic environments running on the cloud and in containers.

Agile Transformation

You have heard about Agile’s benefits, and you know that the risks of not adopting an Agile approach today can be huge.

 

Adopting agile is never about adopting agile practices. It’s not even about adopting an agile culture.

 

While those things are important, if you don’t achieve better business outcomes, adopting agile is not worth the investment.

 

Your journey toward greater business agility starts by identifying what outcomes are most important to your company’s success. This knowledge helps you lay a foundation for making decisions about how to tailor your approach and guide your transformation to measurably show progress toward your critical business objectives.

We start by helping you take a look at what your company values from a planning perspective and comparing that against what your customer values from a delivery perspective.

 

Organizations often find themselves operating in ways that don’t align with the goals of their customers. They might try to adopt agile to get things in sync, but end up out of alignment with how the rest of their company does business.

 

Getting everyone working together is a process that can be planned and executed with clearly defined goals and measurable outcomes.
