"Mark’s practical approach to building teams that focus on ‘collective execution’ to optimize coordination is essential for people geographically spread and blended between the office and virtual space. Without building cross-functional ‘team habits,’ organizations would be left to operate in silos undermining future success.”

What Our Clients Say

What Is Change Management?

Change management is any processes or projects done by individuals or a team within an organization to enact change within that organization. This can be done for almost any reason, including:

  • The need to update technology within the organization
  • The need to improve culture, attitude, or retention within the organization
  • An initiative to improve diversity & inclusion
  • An organizational change after a merge or acquisition
  • An immediate need to increase profit, hire new employees, or downsize to avoid closure
  • New direction within an organization because of new management or a change in external drivers
What is a Leadership Team?
Why is Leadership Teamwork Important?

Why Is Change Management Important?

Change Management isn’t always important. If you are making small incremental process improvements, it’s not critical. However, when you are dealing with a complex change, change management is essential. 

This is especially true of organization-wide, transformational, enterprise systems, and personnel changes, because success depends on people at all levels taking ownership of their new roles and changing their behavior in a way that considers and leverages others.

Frequently Asked Questions

You can’t. You need a good assessment. The difference is a B STATE approach accomplishes this in days or weeks, not months. With B STATE, we formulate the picture based on the external business drivers that must be addressed. Then our gap analysis considers the best path and initial targets to get immediate progress and refine our approach before launching into the next phase.

A B STATE approach never goes for buy-in up front. Practically speaking, people don’t buy-in until they have evidence that what you are proposing actually works. Instead, we focus involvement. We involve people in painting the new picture. We involve them in identifying the critical challenges. And we involve them in identifying and creating the initial priorities and actions that will make a difference. This type of involvement is what people crave and it creates immediate ownership and enthusiasm for taking action that will produce results

Here are some real quotes from leaders of organization that thought the same thing.

“My staff was burned-out and overwhelmed, but by using the B STATE approach, we not only accomplished our goals, but we saved 4 hours per person per week in meeting time. For 150-person function, that was the equivalent of getting 15 extra bodies a year for free.” – Defense contractor IT group – EVP. “By going through a structured approach to our planning, we were able to overcome challenges and open our Hospital Cath Lab one year early, which gives us a year’s worth of additional revenue and the ability to serve the needs of our community. – Rural Health System CEO
The initial two-days putting together the picture of success, new habits of execution, the B STATE roadmap, and initial priorities, cut three months of time off the construction of our first indoor theme park. Theme Park VP

Not at all. We help you install and customize a systematic B STATE approach to your change management. We also appear at critical stages to set up the system, make sure it functions as a part of your normal leadership process, and set up the follow-up and measurement to make sure you are successful. Then we transfer the B STATE System to you so that you can use it for other efforts down the road. We empower you to manage your change rather than creating “consultant dependency.” However, we are not hit and run either. We are always available to help you accomplish the business outcomes you have targeted.

Yes, we do. If you agree the roadmap is practical and do your part, 97% of the companies we work with more than attain their goals. That’s how, after 35 years, we can make that guarantee with confidence. In the few case that companies don’t, we are on board to make the adjustments with you to get there.

Results are static, but the ability to grow and respond to the changing environment can be built into your culture and serve you for years to come. Most organizations use their B STATE strategies, cultures, and team systems for 3-15 years after the initial implementation.
