All business problems are human problems…

…and this is especially clear when organisations seek to create value through large-scale change. Change initiatives are complex and challenging, not just because of the high-stakes business decisions, innovation, and execution that need to happen, but also because of the powerful human and system dynamics at play. Those dynamics are often why such efforts fail to deliver the value intended.

Human dynamics can either constrain or accelerate change. So it’s not enough to have a well crafted business solution. Your ability to deliver real value hinges on your capacity to unlock positive human change, to shift behaviours and mindsets, engage and partner with the people who will drive the change, and empower them to lead together towards a clear shared and purposeful ambition.

Our Approach

Define the ambition

We partner with you and your team to understand the challenge at hand, clarify what’s at stake and what’s most important, and create a clear, ambitious picture of a sustainable future.

Surface insights

In team working sessions, we deep dive into your ambition, surfacing the tensions we’ll need to address and generating breakthrough insights and ideas to fuel real progress.

Unlock the change

Based on these insights and ideas, we build a roadmap and get the change in motion, including decisions and actions as well as the changes in ways of working, culture, and behavior that will unlock the human and system dynamics in your organisation.

Build on your progress

At every step of the way, we partner with your team to work through tensions and challenges together, making course corrections, and building on your progress as you create real value through sustainable change.

Why partner with BRIDGE

We’ve lived it: Clients trust our consultants because before we were consultants, we ran global businesses, led engineering and product development organisations, and successfully oversaw large-scale acquisitions. We’ve walked in your shoes and understand the pressure you face to deliver change that creates real value.

We’re experts in how people get great things done: We bring a fundamentally different approach to change compared to management consulting firms. Our approach is human-centred because it’s not enough to just have a well-crafted business solution. To make great things happen, it’s essential to also engage and mobilise the hearts and minds of everyone involved.

We partner with you throughout the journey: We aren’t just there for solution development. We partner with you throughout the whole journey, from solution to reality, until you see real business results and the change is embedded in your organisation’s DNA.

We enable you to sustain the change: We don’t hand you our solution to your challenges. Instead we partner with you to develop your organisation’s capacity to generate breakthrough ideas and rise to the leadership challenge, so that you can sustain the change yourselves.

HOW DO WE GET STARTED?

“The first thing I want to understand is what “great” would look like. What are you really hoping for? What are the most important kinds of change you’re looking to drive, and how would those changes create value in your business?

Then I want to explore what’s been in the way so far. What will need to change to achieve your ambition? People often have surprisingly clear answers to these questions, and those answers can help us quickly get on a path that will lead to breakthrough results.”

Common challenges we hear

We’ve set a new strategic direction to turn around our business, and we need to quickly orient the organisation toward executing the new strategy. It feels as if everything needs to change at once, from priorities, objectives, and capabilities, to culture, incentives, and ways of working.

We’re embarking on a significant acquisition and we need to quickly integrate our two leadership cultures, figure out what to keep and what to change, and build a culture that enables people from both businesses to be their best.

Innovation is the lifeblood of our business, and our innovation engine has slowed down. We need to break through the constraints of our current thinking and fill our pipeline with fresh and meaningful ideas that will win in the marketplace.

We’re restructuring our organisation and need to develop new ways of working and capabilities and strengthen cross-functional leadership and collaboration to deliver the value we need to create.
