Over half of all initiatives fail. A sobering thought, when you consider the millions of dollars and hours poured into projects, programs and change efforts over the last 35 years. Why? The human mind. Recent neuroscientific research unearths a telling truth: the brain experiences every change as a threat. Small wonder then that organizations struggle to sustain lasting transformation – their people are quite literally hard wired to resist it. Watershed CI strives to change this by considering people impacts at every stage of strategy execution, this is the core of our Change Integration™ approach.
Watershed CI’s Approach to Strategy Execution
Our consultants pinpoint risk from the initial planning phases through to the final stage, clearly delineating areas where the natural human inclination to resist may delay or derail strategic initiatives. Our change management approach guides individuals, teams and organizations through these areas, in real time and across the business. Our initiative management approach ensures projects and programs never lose sight of the dual impact and reliance they have on people for successful delivery. Since a focus on people happens early and consistently, our change integration™ approach integrates efforts and vastly increases the likelihood of end-user adoption, financial success and sustainability.
