Changing structures and procedures in order to achieve strategic corporate or operational project goals are often unavoidable and at the same time complex. We accompany our clients in the strategic corporate or operative project context. We develop clear target visions, suitable structures and strong rollout concepts in order to implement these with the needs-oriented integration of the crucial human factor.
Change Management: It is about mindset.
Your company is currently undergoing an agile transformation? You are about to meet the digital requirements and lead your workforce in new directions? Are you relocating your processes abroad (offshoring, nearshoring)? Or maybe you are merging with another company?
Even if the answers to all these questions are different, they always involve big changes and challenges: lack of commitment and communication of the management, resistance and fears on the part of the employees, lack of ability for the new tasks or experience in implementing the change. We consider these challenges as an opportunity for the next development step of your company.
Change Management: Yes, but with methodology and diplomacy.

At Ventum, we combine our expertise in management methods with a deep understanding of the cultural and organizational change that accompanies every change initiative. We support you in achieving your company goals and contribute to improving organizational performance by involving your employees. This is how we jointly ensure the sustainability of the changes.
In order to give your employees and the company orientation, we develop a corporate mission statement together with you. This forms the framework for your vision, mission and corporate values. We help you to master the various areas of tension in the development of your mission statement, to preserve what has been approved and to add new elements relevant to success. This is how we set the guard rails for your strategy. This describes the way to achieve the long-term goals and come closer to your vision. At the beginning we support you with the examination of the strategy in the business context and accompany you then with the contentwise elaboration. Together with you, we develop concrete measures to implement the strategy, considering "hard" and "soft" factors.
„Any change, even a change for the better, is always accompanied by drawbacks and discomforts“. (A. Benett)
Every change in a company triggers uncertainties, fears and resistance among many employees. Therefore, any change processes must be carefully planned and introduced. Together with you we develop a change and communication concept that provides the employees with the answers to the questions WHAT, WHERE and HOW. It describes the usefulness of the change measures as well as concrete steps for their implementation. The change concept serves as a guideline for management throughout the entire change phase and helps you to deal with resistance, among other things.
In order to ensure a sustainable acceptance of change and to give employees an orientation in the change process, it is indispensable to include them in the change design process. Transparent and regular communication plays a core role here. We define all target group-specific contents, communication media and phases in a communication concept together with you. In order to enable your employees to cope with the changes, we develop appropriate training measures and accompany them with workshops, training and coaching. At the same time, we ensure that your company's top management continuously accompanies and supports the change process.
Our strength lies in the networking of our fields of competence. For our comprehensive consulting approach, we draw on internal expertise in the areas of Agile Enablement, IT Service & Transition, Business Process Management, Project Management as well as Training & Coaching. Through this approach, we achieve sustainable change in cooperation with you.
