Approaches and packages
Modular packages and programmes that ensure teams can embrace and adapt to to change.
We are committed to making change happen, innovating and driving commercial and customer outcomes that are consistent with our clients vision and ambition. We know that to do this we need to overcome the challenges of change, transformation and growth.
Our modular packages and approaches help to set direction, simplify change, prioritise activities and outcomes, adapt and change direction when required based on evidence, fact and learning. Our approaches are above all pragmatic and are supported by coaching and team-building more than 'consulting'.
Adaptive, 'always on' engagement and coaching
Business leaders have known for some time that many change and transformation programmes often fall short their overall objectives. But what could make them more successful?
Adaptomy have designed new approaches to avoid some of the pitfalls of orthodox change and transformation. The first of these is our Adaptive Engagement Model (AEM). It's a less complicated approach with packages and modules designed to create focus and provide clear short and longer term outcomes.
Our approach engages cross-functional, inter-disciplinary teams early in the process to shape challenges and solutions and maximise buy-in. More than anything it's adaptable, able to change direction as more learning and outcomes are delivered. Essentially, it's a 'people first' approach.
We combine this approach with on-line and face to face coaching, collaboration tools and 'always on' work-groups to share experiences, build insight and transfer knowledge.

4 packages to accelerate change and growth
1. Phase Zero, 3-14 days
When it comes to getting started with any change or transformation, many companies find themselves starting with a 'point of pain or gain'. Although removing the pain or exploiting the gain might provide short term benefit, the pain or gain may only have been symtomatic or indicative of another root cause or a greater opportunity. Adaptomy Phase Zero is a short, intensive leadership programme to engage key stakeholders and 'hack' a 'base-line' strategy and plan and set clear priorities.
We use a combination of 'fast track' work-shops, on-line collaboration and adaptomy tools and road-maps to accelerate 'cut through' to more comprehensive, cohesive and complete change and transformation initiatives. These initiatives are positioned within our Adaptive Engagement Model (AEM) as one or more of modular programmes: Kick-start, Pathfinder or Accelerator

2. Kick-start, 4-6 weeks
Differential advantage will accrue to organisations that can build and embed new capability faster than rivals. Adaptomy Kick-start programmes are designed to drive change and transformations in strategically important disciplines, quickly. They focus on one or more disciplines, building capability and operating models in relatively short time-scales.
Adaptomy's tools and road-maps provide structure and systems to deliver deliver outcomes. Outputs include actionable strategy and change plans focused on the strategic disciplines in scope and a range of recommendations on next steps, up-stream or down-stream change or more extensive transformations required.
Although structured and systematic Kick-start programmes are not a 'one size fits all' approach. Adaptomy has used Kick-start programmes in many different industries on a broad range of disciplines.
In all of these programmes just-in-time feedback kept teams engaged, working closely with cross-functional client teams provided deeper more meaningful insight and buy-in. We were able to build a sense of collective effort and community, increase transparency and demonstrate clear progress amongst project teams, key stakeholders and sponsors.
"...change doesn't happen by accident it requires leadership, conviction, structure, systematic approaches and manageable programmes that help build capability and encourage knowledge sharing and collective buy-in - modularised approaches designed to avoid traditional transformation traps ..."
3. Pathfinder, 8-12 weeks
More extensive transformations need a little more time. Adaptomy Pathfinder programmes are designed to tackle tougher challenges without falling into the transformation trap of becoming too long and too complex. They focus on more complex challenges like cultural and technical change, scale roll-out, re-organisation, larger scale or more challenging operational change. To embed significant change one or more Pathfinder programmes may be required, each of these focused on delivery specific outcomes.
Throughout Adapatomy Pathfinder programmes particular attention is payed to behavioural support, emphasis on direct association and reinforcement, role modelling, leadership transparency, authenticity, coaching and development of cross-functional team-work as well as building structured operating models and capability in strategic disciplines.
4. Accelerator, 12-24 weeks
All Adaptomy programmes are continuously monitored and there may be several Phase Zero, Kick-start and Pathfinder programmes running simultaneously. Part of this monitoring effort is to spot programmes that can be merged or accelerated with additional resource or simply improved by specialist intervention. There may also be external influences, change in market or operational circumstance that offer or need acceleration. In these cases adaptomy re-shapes active programmes or creates new programmes, often 'in-flight' to re-set objectives and outcomes.
This is pragmatic approach that recognises not all outcomes and circumstances are predictable and complex change often requires several changes in focus and direction. It emphasises the need for structured, systematic approaches to help develop new capability and flexibility to foster clear leadership and implement effective behavioural models to resolve complicated operational challenges.
