Struggling to engage your team?

Design an effective change strategy

The nature of change has evolved. It occurs more often, faster and is less predictable. Generational shifts (Gen Z, anyone?), technical disruption   (AI, anyone?) and the rise of hybrid and remote work, make traditional methods of managing change, outdated. We address the only constant  - people’s resistance to change due to feelings of uncertainty and loss -  with empathy and collaborative strategies. In that way, we ensure that your leadership efforts regenerate, and not drain, organizational vitality.

The Buildr Change Process

How do we guarantee that your push for transformation has lasting influence? By designing a process that unleashes your organization's inherent capacity to adapt. Click on the different phases to discover how Buildr will facilitate your change process.

1. Learn

We organize fast-paced workshops to map out existing ideas to go from the current to the desired state and start constructing the story behind the desired change. 

2. Engage

We organize an off-site workshop to align on our change objectives, perform an in-depth reality check, and plan initiatives to move forward in the desired direction.

3-6. Grow

We implement agile learning cycles of planning, execution, and review. By uniting people from diverse teams, we break barriers and merge insights, fostering an inclusive culture ready for growth. We start with trial-ready projects and learn along the way. This approach minimizes risk and prepares us for broader implementation.

5. Adopt

We focus on making the shift from pilot projects to organization-wide implementation. We align current operations with new processes, ensuring a smooth transition to the desired way of working, and organize targeted training and support to equip your people with the knowledge for the new processes and behaviors.

6. Embrace

We activate a network of change advocates to guide and reassure teams, cementing widespread adoption and cultural integration. This can take on a (hybrid) form of a center of excellence or a community of practice. After that, our direct involvement is no longer needed.

When applying change management in your organization, people feel prepared, equipped and supported.*

Frequently Asked Questions

Why is this a change process, and not a change model?

Viewing change as a process rather than a model makes the concept of ‘change’ more practical, adaptable, and relatable, aligning more closely with organizational change's dynamic and complex nature. One-size-fits-all solutions are never helpful. A process aligns more closely with the continuously evolving nature of organizations, making it a more effective approach to managing change.

How long does this process take?

It’s impossible to predict how long a change process will take. This highly depends on the changing conditions of people and teams involved. These conditions (for example, market challenges, social circumstances,…) can impact an organization anytime. A human is no island, so organizations are neither. That is why we prefer to work with outcome-oriented phases in the process, rather than try to predict the whole outline of it at the start.

How will I know that my organization is succesfully changing?

The process itself is never the goal. That’s why Buildr insists on setting what we call change OKRs that stress the people side of change in your organization. We prefer working with OKRs (a goal-setting framework with objectives (O) and Key Results (KRs)), since these best align with the agile (or scrum) methodologies we insert to measure progress during the growth phase of the change process.

Is this process linear?

In a way, yes, it is. Each new phase builds on the actions taken and lessons learned from the previous phase. Depending on your organizational context and conditions, we can take initiatives typical for a certain phase and bring it forward or push it further down the road.

Can this process fail?

Buildr can assure that the process and the change you aim for are managed at an expert level, yet can never guarantee a quick fix or easy process. It depends on the changing conditions of the people involved and the organization’s capabilities.

For what organizations is this process best-suited?

This change process emphasizes adaptability, collaboration, and continuous improvement. It is particularly well-suited for organizations with a mix of these characteristics:

  1. Organizations with high change readiness
  2. Organizations with a strong vision
  3. Organizations lacking alignment on vision
  4. Organizations uncertain about where to start with change
  5. Organizations undergoing significant transformation
  6. Organizations placing a high value on people and culture.
