1. Perceive

Critical analysis of the status quo of the organization and change. This phase builds on insights from key stakeholders and identifies what is needed to create clarity and get people excited about and aligned with the transformation.

2. Envision

In this phase, the goal is to create an 80% draft for the target picture – the so-called “OneGoal”. The entire management team is involved and the transformation plan is drafted.

3. Architect

The OneGoal is finalized, and structures for implementation are prepared. This includes forming a dedicated transformation team that drives the actions in the evolving transformation plan.

4. Kick-off

Now the task ahead is to bring all employees along to inspire them to follow. This involves well-orchestrated communication and building the systems to align the whole team with the OneGoal. Focus checks constantly calibrate the path.
