Culture is complex, intangible and hardwired. By changing the paradigm and focusing on integrating the collaboration system, you get all the benefits of unified, effective daily performance in just months.
Culture is a hugely complex system of values, symbols, habits, traditions and many other elements that are a part of our very identity. That is why focusing on culture has been a highly inefficient approach.
Collaboration on the other hand is a much simpler system, made up of very tangible processes, and not so hardwired in people. That is why integrating it is so much easier and effective. And, lets be honest, what we need in a merger is people collaborating effectively and productively across functional, structural and other boundaries, as quickly as possible.
Your collaboration system is made up of four elements: People engaging in Activity, using Technology to connect and provide Outcomes.
At the Operation Level of collaboration, we integrate the way people operate processes and technology, replacing assumptions, team habits and individual "common sense" with formal models of operation.
The result is full integration of daily collabroration of the separate teams in just weeks.
At the Outcomes Level of collaboration, we integrate the way people set and manage objectives. All the teams come under a unified model that guarantees clarity, visibility and ownership of obejctives.
The result is that everyone delivers the expected outcomes on time.
Give us 20 minutes of your time and we'll transform the way you focus the integration of your Human Systems.
