Our Approach?

"If you only have a hammer, every problem looks like a nail"

 

Move! is not selling 'precast solutions or specific methodologies' because we think every organization is different, faces different challenges and needs a customized process to bring stakeholders together to understand the issues, come up with creative and innovative ideas to solve them and create the 'sense of belonging' to the community the organization is in order to turn these ideas into reality. We start from a number of principles and building blocks to design the partnership with our client-organization, the process as well as our own role in that process.

  • Collaborative Work Relationship: We work WITH and not FOR our customers. Our intervention is aimed at reinforcing customer ownership for the issues, for the action we take and for the eventual result and outcome.Approachcube3

  • Action Learning: It's not an 'all-inclusive holiday, it's an adventurous track. We construct and adapt the intervention as we go, based on what we learn from one step, we design the next one, in a way that a shared and deep understanding of the issues emerges.

  • We believe in Dialogical Organizational Development where all stakeholders co-create their own future and construct their shared ambition. That dialogue is the place where new ideas are generated and where the sense of ownership and contribution is built.

  • Involving Internal Stakeholders : In order to get sustainable results and enable the organization to continue the change effort over time, we involve all players from the very beginning (the initial analysis) and see the process as a 'track' to develop competencies, insights, and energy that allows them to be real contributors.

  • Focusing on added value & impact, not just on 'getting something done'.

  • Systemic: We focus on the organization as social system and on the relationships of teams and individuals that work together in that system. We look at all the 'levers' that can block or facilitate the expected individual and collective behavior and performance in the organization. We look at behavior as the result of 'individual talent' and 'contextual triggers'.

  • Induce Organizational Learning : Our intervention should not only have an impact on behavior and performance, but will also make the organization stronger, autonomous and enabled to deal with similar issues in the future. We want to develop the 'change and learning capability' of our client-organizations in such a way they are more 'self-sufficient' in developing their organizational performance and not 'depending' on consulting interventions.

  • Role Flexibility: Although Move! is in the first place a 'process consultant' we also take on other roles occasionally in an attempt to push the process further. We share our own experience as manager in organizations, we share our insights and expertise in Learning, change management, and strategic HR, we coach, challenge and trigger people.

  • Open, honest and candid : We believe that consulting and process facilitation are 'relational activities' and that they require a relationships in which feedback, challenge, open and full information, accountability, respect for the agreed upon ground rules are crucial to create lasting impact on organizational performance.
