The client’s problem
A large company in the UK energy market, while expecting a period of growth and transformation, was determined to improve and align their capabilities across the entire group as part of its long-term strategy.
Furthermore, the client faced different and competing approaches to change management as well as a significant change management challenge in orchestrating the necessary structural changes and preparing the entire group for the change.
Oleto Associates formed an extended working team consisting of both client key stakeholders from across the group and experienced management consultants from Oleto Associates. The project was structured in two separate, yet interdependent workstreams with detailed week plans and deliverables. The first track focused on designing the new organisational setup for the first centre of excellence and included activities such as, defining and selecting the preferred organisational scenario and creating the go-live implementation plan. The second track developed a group-wide change management toolkit for future change initiatives and included content such as group core beliefs, practical guidelines & principles, templates and examples. Both work streams followed an iterative approach in which alignment with group executive management and other group key stakeholders was ensured throughout the process to achieve buy-in as well as an efficient process.
A well-implemented new organisational setup with onboarded employees, a clear and uniform approach to planning and executing future change management initiatives, and an aligned leadership team dedicated to cross-functional collaboration.
