Success Stories for Organizational Change
Organizational Assessment
Organizational Change

When one of the world’s leading consumer healthcare companies underwent a consent decree due to quality issues within its supply chain, Gus Prestera worked with its senior leaders within manufacturing, technical operations, and quality as well as various regulatory compliance organizations and hundreds of external quality consultants to implement an organizational assessment process.  He advised dozens of quality teams and their HR business partners at multiple sites as they learned and used his process and tools to define the future state organization in terms of competencies, resource capacity, headcount, and organizational structure.  Through this work, they established a sustainable supply chain organization and laid the groundwork for competency-based hiring and training.

Engagement Survey
Organizational Change

Senior leadership at a division within a mid-sized pharmaceutical company became aware of morale and turnover issues in the wake of a major re-structuring. They wanted to conduct an engagement survey to find out the extent of the issues and gain insight into how best to address them, but they wanted it to be something quick and compact, not a lengthy process with cumbersome surveys and reports. We customized a streamlined survey for them and designed a compact report that was organized in layers, enabling them to start with a high-level dashboard, then drill down as needed. We also provided recommendations for how to address the gaps uncovered by the survey.

Values-Driven Cultural Change
Organizational Change

The CEO brought in to effect a turn-around of a global manufacturer recognized the need to change not only its business strategy but also its organizational culture. Building on the new core values and core competencies that the Executive Committee established, we designed a change implementation process and built a variety of change communication pieces to support it. We produced online courses to teach people how to live into the values and managers how to promote change adoption; facilitated a leader workshop to kick things off; and facilitated quarterly sync-up calls to keep the conversation going.

Team Facilitation
Organizational Change

In support of a CEO who was looking to drive a cultural transformation, we designed and facilitated a series of workshops with his Executive Committee and the extended leadership team. All of the workshops included elements of team building as well as hands-on activities to help them learn new ways of collaborating and implementing their business strategy. These workshops were coupled with one-on-one executive coaching, change management initiatives, and specific performance improvement interventions, so that the workshops were “plugged into” and complementary to the broader transformation efforts, amplifying their effects.

Helping HR Drive Change
Organizational Change

Working with HR business partners at a regional healthcare system, we implemented a talent review and success planning process that incorporated our Three Kingdoms model. We trained these HR professionals on the process and on best practices for facilitating the process with the business leaders they supported and prompting the right conversations to take place between leaders and their employees. We then coached the HR team as they implemented the process within their respective client organizations. Their adoption of the process led to improvements in accountability, employee engagement, performance, and professional development.

Communication & Pull-Through
Organizational Change

In support of a company-wide cultural transformation, we develop a change plan and built a variety of communication and pull-through tools. Communications included videos from the leadership team, talking about what the change meant for them personally, as well as posters, signage, and other communication pieces. Pull-through tools included a manager playbook, giving leaders a step-by-step guide for how to facilitate change conversations with their teams. We also created resource lists, containing links to books, articles, videos, and other elements that managers could use in their team discussions.
