Strategic Change Interventions

There are occasions when organisations in their growth journey struggle with the overall mediocre performance, such that with immense difficulty the business simply reaches break-even. And at times, long-haul sustainability becomes a question, and immediate survival is the only thing on the mind. On the other hand, productivity is at its peak. However, the leadership is clueless on what next? And how? Or, even better, leadership aspires everyone in the organization to display its brand values or refine it and cascade but don't know how to do it? Lastly, values and principles that might have protected for a long time have become a shackle?

These situations are an alarm to a systemic issue or concern and pose as a barricade from achieving blockbuster performance. Dāntotsu’s specialised Strategic Change Interventions approach has helped organisations emancipate and manoeuvre.

The desired change is achieved through whole systems thinking, engaging stakeholders in designing and implementing methods to achieve swift transformation, and building internal capabilities to champion the revolution. The board categories include:

Culture Creation

Where employees do not identify, or exhibit being belonged to a common identity to progress and excel

Culture Re-engineering

Where identity/culture is present in bits and pieces, re-assessment is required to equip it with the current context to stay relevant in competition and perform

Culture Excellence

Where the culture exists, however, it needs to be aligned to the vision, and desired behaviours to be identified to channelise collective efforts and productivity towards achieving the vision
