Coverdale can provide a wide range of tailor made organisational development consultant services to meet the specific needs of your organisation. We can help at both the development and the implementation stages ensuring clarity and then delivery in the following areas:
Vision and strategy
Vision and strategy are talked about a lot and there are hundreds of books written on the subject. Why then is it so difficult to get right? Coverdale can help you develop real clarity of direction and then facilitate your thinking so that you choose the most appropriate strategy to succeed. We will then work with you so that the right things are in place to ensure successful implementation - where most strategies fail.
Most organisations nowadays have corporate values. They all look great, since no-one publishes values that don't look appealing. Living them is quite different to publishing them however. Words on a page are one thing, actions quite another. Coverdale can help you clarify and test your organisation's values and then help you bring them to life so that the leaders set the model and all the people in the organisation live the values.
Is your structure appropriate for what you are trying to achieve? Coverdale can help you with your thinking, ensure that the structure enables rather than disables your strategy and help you bring about a smooth transition that everyone understands.
Make the implementation of change successful, getting the buy in and commitment of your people. Coverdale can help ensure that the change management process is rigorously thought through and planned, and more importantly implemented effectively.
Culture change and organisational alignment
Is everything in your organisation in tune? Do you have the right culture and are the people and resources aligned to what you are trying to achieve? If not then it will kill your strategy. Coverdale can ensure your culture is appropriate for your structure and strategy and that your organisation and people are aligned in order to deliver your business aims.
Mergers, acquisitions and organisational integration
Most organisations will do financial due diligence on an acquisition. Finances and structures are often planned in detail after a merger. Why then do so many fail? Human due diligence is often overlooked. It is important to take a holistic approach to integration and ensure all aspects of the integration are covered to ensure success. Coverdale can help you ensure that your new organisation is integrated properly at all levels.
In any change it is critical that people are given the right skills and opportunity to develop the behaviours appropriate to what the organisation is trying to achieve. This is something that needs to be developed and will not happen just because it is asked for. Coverdale can help you clarify the appropriate behaviours required to achieve your business aims and then put a process in place that will enable people to develop the right skills for sustained behaviour change.
More and more in any organisational change the need for project management principles are needed. Project management structure, methods and culture can help deliver the results you need. Coverdale can help you with all levels of project management, including governance, methodology and skills.
