Success depends on lean and “outcome-driven” project management, collective decisiveness, proactive recovery plans and dedicated actions in alignment with desired with business results. Sustaining success depends on a high performance culture that adapts to changing business conditions. IMPAQ‘s unique approach impacts culture by increasing trust, breaking down silos, developing new habits of execution and establishing meaningful monitoring systems producing measurable business results within three to six months.
While each engagement is customized, IMPAQ uses a systematic methodology for executing business strategy and change delivered in five phases:
Phase 1: Accountability Assessment
Identify patterns of breakdown in execution between organizational levels and functional areas. Not only will the organization become clear on where accountability is breaking down, key habits of execution will be identified for development to insure even greater organizational success. The result: a clear strategy for executing business strategy that leverages change efforts and the organization’s culture to achieve business results.
Phase 2: Executive Alignment and Focus
Working session to build demonstrated alignment for the organization’s “Picture of Success” and prepare executive’s to lead and monitor organizational change and guide middle management. Executives will learn about the key strategies for increasing organizational performance, leading change and developing middle managers to be more effective change agents.
Phase 3: Middle Managers as Leaders of Change
Develop middle managers into a unified team of change agents responsible for achieving the organization’s priorities and deliverables as established by executives. Using IMPAQ‘s Agreements for Excellence System, middle managers will develop cross-functional collaboration and teamwork that breaks down silos and builds ownership for achieving business results. Middle managers develop specific strategies and actions to improve execution, relationships and deliverables – all linked to produce the organization’s priorities and business outcomes.
Phase 4: Increase Supervisor and Employee Accountability and Engagement
Implement a custom version of Accountability Based Leadership with middle management while Implementing the Power of Personal Accountability with all employees so all individuals develop a new standard of performance, communication and engagement linked to the organization’s goals.
Phase 5: Measure, Monitor and Transfer for Sustainability
Establish measurements that are monitored throughout phases 2 through 4. Also, develop internal change agents to continue the organizations “Accountability movement” to support improved and sustained results.
