A large government-owned water supplier engaged Nous Group to build change management capability to deliver its vision and strategic goals. It wanted to develop this capability in its employees and contractors and find an approach that could be integrated into the fabric of their day-to-day operations.
The methodology needed to suit a technical workforce with a strong engineering background. We consequently leveraged our proprietary change management methodology and toolkit, tailoring it to suit this large, complex water utility’s needs. Through workshops, consultations and working sessions we adapted the toolkit to fit with existing processes, language, culture and norms.
We taught the methodology to change coaches from across the organisation and formed a ‘community of practice’ to ensure internal ownership and championship. We built capability through tailored training, action learning and one-on-one coaching to build the coaches’ confidence and skill. This community consequently took on responsibility for refining the change approach over time so that it continued to align with business needs.
Change coaches immediately and consistently applied our leading change approach to projects across the organisation, resulting in demonstrable improvement to the client’s return on project investment.
