Calibra-tion on the Move

by on June 1, 2010

We had the opportunity to present our organizational change and transformation framework for the first time at Ethier Associates ( on May 19. Ethier is a consulting firm specializing in project management, business process innovation and business analysis, bringing business improvement through people and technology. We highly respect their work and we were honoured when they asked us to share our ideas at one of their Learning Forums – organized for their consultants as opportunities to explore new ideas and enrich their own experience and learning.

This was the perfect opportunity for us to start sharing our combined ideas for change and culture management and what building capacity is all about. We had about 20 people attend the session, including Ethier’s partners.

The subject of the session was “Understanding and Leveraging Organizational Culture and Change”. We presented our change methodology, our full-specturm model of change management, and the organizational culture work we are embedding in our practice and introducing to the Calgary market.

Our presentation focused on how to sustain change in organizations by focusing beyond the project to embedding change management, organizational culture practices and capacity development at all levels. In our presentation we referenced the book ‘Titanic Lessons for IT Projects’ by Mark Kozak-Holland. The importance of understanding the causal architecture or as many factors, context and history of a problem is critical to creating long-standing and sustainable solutions.

It was a great experience for us and the presentation was well-received. We are looking forward to more opportunities to present our work to other colleagues and organizations in Calgary. We’re excited about this work and want to share it!
