While incremental and continuous improvement is necessary in any context, it is not sufficient for success in a fast-changing world. Organizations don’t achieve transformation by tweaking what they’re already doing. Slow and expensive are two words that are increasingly unacceptable; the need to do things differently has never been greater.
Kotter partners with clients to activate the whole organization in removing structural, process, policy, and cultural barriers to rapid progress. Whether through targeted innovation efforts or wide-scale re-organizations, new structures and processes are not outcomes on their own – they are methods for unlocking customer-focused results. By engaging beyond the C-suite and including people from across the organization, our work enables laser-focused teams to move with urgency, speed, and creativity, creating efficiency and positioning management systems to foster the speed and innovation required for success in the 21st century.
