“When it comes to the result of business operations, we exceeded our goals last year. Our strategy is now realized genuinely in our daily work, and we perform well in all focal areas. It is clear to the people which activities are important and when; managerial work has become clearer and taken a step forward. People have really committed to using BEAT-change management platform. The response rate has been over 80% throughout the collaboration”, says Climecon’s CEO Tommi Uksila.
FROM CHANGE MANAGER’S PATH TO CLARIFYING THE STRATEGY
“We had quite little previous experience of using consultants in strategy work. These few experiments did not give much rise to new ideas; rather, they helped us to perceive how things should be. It was important to us to now understand and learn how things are realized in day-to-day life. I needed a model for clarifying the strategy into concrete action. The Trainers’ House Impact Map contained everything essential exactly for this,” Uksila says.
STRATEGY INTO EVERYDAY ACTIONS
When the collaboration began, Trainers’ House and the management team of Climecon together crystallised what the strategy is as an objective and most important activity that can be proven.
“As the collaboration proceeded, we learned about the BEAT. Having used BEAT, I have to say that it is more than just a platform – it functions as an excellent management tool. With BEAT, we were able to increase transparency, demolish silos and all the people now know each other’s key activities,” Uksila says.
Working together is fun and extremely productive. I particularly like the fact that there is expertise in all areas, regardless of who you are talking to,” Uksila commends.
