Engagement

Engagement stands for successful Change Management in Leadership, Innovation and Strategy - through the consistent involvement of all relevant Stakeholders.

Constant change is the new normal. Which leads to new opportunities – if only you can see them!

Martin Weigert (Contributer to t3n, "Weigerts World Column")

The digital revolution is bringing deep and lasting societal change, and is impacting in particular on the business world. The precise role human beings will play in future isn’t easy to predict – but we can be confident that it will be significantly different.

Human beings possess unique and powerful abilities – creativity, intuition, emotional intelligence for example – that enable us to help shape change if we are truly empowered to live up to our full potential.

This is what Engagement is all about.


The Human Factor

Engagement focuses squarely on the Human Factor. It taps into people’s accumulated experience and knowledge – and unleashes their creative potential, their ability to shape and anticipate.

  • If companies create the space for creativity and intuition….we don’t just foster a more people-driven culture, we create something that is ultimately more successful.

    Tim Leberecht (Entrepreneur, Marketing Guru and Author of “Business Romantics”)

Empirical

Combining an empirical with an exploratory approach, existing knowledge is collated, structured and analysed; new ideas are generated. This forms the basis for transformation into strategic action plans.

  • An empirical-exploratory approach is useful for innovation processes at a product and service level. It also has immense relevance at the corporate level, helping organisational development processes.


    Bernd Oestereich (Co-Author "The collegial-style Company")

Involvement

The involvement of all relevant stakeholders – being heard, group conceptualising and ideating collaboratively – leads to lasting levels of higher motivation and a deeper-rooted buy-in to company decisions.

Companies often don’t really notice the ideas their employees have – which is the worst possible thing you can do, it’s totally demotivating.

Linus Dahlander (Professor, ESMT Berlin)

Flexibility

The Engagement process is relatively simple but eminently flexible – completely tailorable to differing objectives. Depending on the context, business unit or particular business situation, the process can be comprehensively adapted without losing any finesse or Impact.
