Corte works against a project plan that usually has 3-5 milestone events to align all elements of the design over a period of months. We find that longer efforts with more, short meetings don’t create the momentum to sustain real change in teams or organizations.
We use “design thinking” to involve appropriate stakeholders, create iterations of solutions, and to test solutions before implementing.
We recommend and plan for “discontinuous change” in which leadership selects a specific date to cut over to new ways of operating.
Though the design process is rapid, there is ample involvement and communication so that the changes are anticipated and implemented well.
Because we seek improved outcomes for all stakeholder, there are fewer barriers and roadblocks than in organizational changes that sub optimize results for one group.
The design principles that guide our process were developed over several decades and hundreds of organizational changes to create superior designs and drive better implementation.
