Transformation Sprints - Authentic Change
Change is hard because people overestimate the value of what they have and underestimate the value of what they may gain by giving that up.
Transformation Sprints Mission: To facilitate culture, process and implementation, and get to the other side.
Formats: Business (enterprise-wide) Transformation, Digital Transformation, Leadership Transformation, Culture Transformation, Brand & Experience Transformation
Defined: Change management roadmaps, workshop(s) and interventions across five different transformational aspects, designed to surface and apply methods to create: change-friendly cultures. change-ready participants and change-adaptive teams to recognize shifts, reflect on and let go of the past, and enter into a “not knowing” period (what some refer to as “liminal space”) in which new possibilities, mindsets, methods and behaviors can emerge.
The Cygnus Difference:
Experience - no matter how talented, we get the difficulty in accepting change facilitation with people under five years of experience, our principals average 4x that
Rapid Delivery - transformation engagements can take forever, we're designed for building momentum and making progress in three months or less
Wide Approaches - each transformation situation begs a different path, we harness over 30+ approaches to change
Client Empathy - we are not the saviours coming in from outside, we know change is tough, we've been in your shoes before, consider us empathetic partners and allies
Skin in the Game - our DNA, core value proposition and performance metrics, are rooted in making the most impact in the least time
Options: Act sequentially to any one of our other Sprint engagements; occasionally turn a Sprint into an ongoing engagement Cygnus Marathon or Decathlon where Cygnus resources continues to guide effort.
Time-boxed company-wide sprints that avoid the temptation to do the big bang transformation and instead make headway on the areas of most urgent need and most impact potential, moving pebbles and boulders not full quarries.
Rewire your organization by plotting out a series of small steps to build new digital ambitions, inventory digital readiness, enhance e-skills and e-literacy, provide tools and communication and incubate digital engagement and accessibility as a day-to-day habit.
Successful transformation of organizations can often start at the top. It's a conscious choice - do you want to be better? Driving stronger self-awareness, synthesizing the complexities of the work past and ahead, letting go of institutionalized ways holding you back and building growth skills, is an important leader and executive team antecedent before being able to change others.,
Culture often eats even the best strategy for breakfast. It is the flywheel that either allows or prevents things to pass. It also can float below the surface. Our experts expose the potential for good that exists in your culture. Our sprints mobilize: the vision for change, the requirements for changing values, the skill sets to manage the change, the road map defining the future impacts of the change and the engagement forums., spaces and incentives to hard set positive changes.
BRAND & EXPERIENCE TRANSFORMATION
Customers are willing to pay more, repurchase more and advocate more for companies and brands that provide a consistently great customer experience. That's a winning trifecta’. Our sprints can quickly focus on top level, shared brand and customer-centric vision, middle level redesign, emphasis, streamlining and digitization of customer journeys and/or bottom level, customer insight, feedback and communication loops aimed to keep the customer experience front-and-center in the organziation.
