Organization Effectiveness & Development
We begin each consulting engagement with a Discovery & Analysis process with your key people using our organizational blueprint, the Change Effectiveness & Sustainability Epicycle(CEASE).
The CEASE model helps our clients consciously assess, develop, and implement changes to improve organizational, leadership, team and individual effectiveness.
The CEASE guides our work with clients to assess what areas are having the largest negative impact on the organization’s performance, and then pinpoint, implement and align just those development activities that will close the performance gaps (i.e., improve measurable results).
This whole-system framework keeps clients from wasting resources by doing such things as:
· Implementing too many changes at once
· Selecting too sweeping of a change (or not comprehensive enough) to close the performance gap
· Selecting changes that have an unintended adverse effect on performance
· Selecting development activities that won’t have an impact at all in improving results.
Compatible with Baldrige, the items in white print on the CEASE are called Components of Effective Organizations. The alignment of these 9 Components of Effective Organizations create a high-performance organizational culture:
1. Customer & Market Focus
9. Information & Analysis
