LONDON — I am not sure who else really does this. It’s the essence of what we do. We help organisations to ensure that their programmes work by managing change and communications.
Quite often we are called in to help with programmes like business transformation or HR / IT initiatives, when they have started to go wrong. Or sometimes we are invited at the outset of new change programmes like brand or values renewals.
The strange combination of skills that we bring to a job are communications, strategy, planning, organisational development, leadership communications, change management, employee engagement and more.
Some of our clients are communications directors. Some or heads of internal communications and some are programme managers who know very little about communications. We often work with strategy, IT and HR managers. Sometimes it’s Chief Executives.
The biggest problem with programme change communications is that most programme managers don’t know that they can have it. People who have programmes to plan and company initiatives to manage, get well underway before they realise that they can and should manage communications and change effectively.
If we could get access to every corporate change programme we could save the economy billions. Maybe that sounds like an over-statement. Maybe it is. But to us it seems real.
Wanted: Programme managers needing programme change communications.
