he dynamics of the market forces companies to realize fundamental readjustments to the demands of the changing environment. The classic lone leader is overwhelmed by these dynamics. The increased work in teams has accelerated the ability of businesses to tackle complexity in a secure manner. In the future, however, many companies will have to learn completely new organizational capabilities: e.g. cooperation in horizontal, non-hierarchical and cross-sectorial networks, in which individuals and teams work together in a new and dynamic way to solve problems or to handle emerging tasks.
Companies have to realize more and more: regulated and standardized processes are not helpful anymore to solve the problems of today’s economic reality. In such times, companies need the ability to form task-oriented networks – again and again. But the associated dynamics also need stabilizing forces to be productive: shared values, identity and linked community.
Linked Community is an essential resource of any business and is caused by a variety of unglamorous interactions, which form a powerful force over time. We see the development of strong Communities as one of our most important missions.
Powerful Communities are characterized by their strong belief in their abilitie to handle difficult situations even in times of uncertainty and insecurity. They trust themselves to reach demanding objectives and to be able to implement difficult solutions because of their joint efforts. This collective power can be developed and trained in a systematic way.
There are various possibilities to develop that power within a company or business-unit. They depend on the situation and the specific tasks and can be integrated fruitfully without major change management programs.
We support companies in the following issues and events:
- Development of cooperation between business units or regions
- Strengthen the cooperation and relationships with partners and customers
- Improve cooperation between central departments and local units
- Increase performance after reorganization
- Form cross-functional teams
