your future is waiting
When you choose a future (re)make, it’s a decision to weight the course of events in your favour. It means changing the trajectory of your organisation to achieve an outcome that is outside the range of its current approach.
However, when anything is possible but nothing is certain, how do you know if a transformation is right for you?
it begins with a vision & purpose
As change makers, our premise is there have never been so many opportunities for business.
As change makers, we know there have never been so many opportunities for business. However, organisations often shortchange themselves with too narrow a focus or by underestimating the change process.
Without a clear vision and a vivid understanding of purpose, a transformation can quickly become a confused, misdirected and expensive project that leaves people feeling caught between the systems of the past and the uncertainty of change. All the while, the market moves ahead, opening the gap between potential and actual performance.
articulate the direction
You would be surprised how often teams tell us they are hesitant about change because the organisation’s language about the change is ambiguous and lacks a clear narrative about the change intentions.
It is not enough to have a vision of the future and a purpose for change unless you can convey them as a direction around which people can rally and a story people can tell.
If it’s time to revisit your vision and purpose (or develop them for the first time), we can help you articulate the change direction and bring your people on board.
diagnose the situation
We don’t take it on face value that what looks like a good idea initially is the right one to go with. Equally, we don’t assume that something that worked for another organisation will work for you just because they happen to be in the same industry.
Change cannot be left to guesswork. We work with you on a diagnostic so that data, not assumptions, informs our work. It means we can target the areas that will make the most difference and identify the potential stumbling blocks early.
We will focus your limited time and resources on achieving the best results based on the right solution.
design for success
Do your people understand what success looks like? What are the shared values and ways of working that are the bridge between your ‘today’ and your desired ‘tomorrow’? How will they be put into practice so they become your ‘rules of engagement’ for everyone in your organisation?
Organisations that develop their culture, capabilities and capacity around values – with their customers at the centre – are those best positioned to get real value from their change project.
Once expectations are clear, we work with you to follow an iterative, quality-driven process to ensure we aren’t addressing the right problem with the wrong solution.
drive for results
We target the areas that will make the most difference and we identify the potential stumbling blocks early – and continually check that we are on track.
Properly set up, your transformation will:
- Deliver on your significant goals, not just the incremental targets.
- Enable you to adapt when opportunities present themselves.
- Proactively anticipate and address risks and threats.
- Respond and adapt to shifts, trends and disruptions AS PART of the change.
- Replace or reinvent business models that are becoming unsustainable, due to, for example, rising costs, supply chain issues or legislative changes.
Just because the future cannot be predicted, it does not mean it cannot be managed.
working with us
Our aim is to make it easy for organisations to take advantage of all the digital era offers.
We provide you with tools and processes we have developed specifically for the dynamic digital environment. This not only demystifies the transition to new ways of working, it makes it easier to decide the options for getting things done that work for you. Then, as we work with you on your transformation, a transfer of skills from us to you happens. Your growing expertise empowers you to aim for and realise bigger goals.
Programs can be delivered 100% remotely when necessary, but typically involve a hybrid of in-person, platform-enabled collaboration and remote work.
At Meta Management, we know change, the drivers of change and how to leverage the power of change. We take the time to understand your business so that we can work with you on the right transformation solution
