Scott Adams is promoted to General Manager of Effectus

For the last 11 years Effectus has built a strong presence in IT Management & Governance Consulting throughout New Zealand of which I am very proud. When we celebrated our 10-year anniversary I reflected on how much had been achieved, including founding the EPIC Innovation Centre, and I predict another fulfilling decade ahead of us with specific focus on supporting our customers with disruption and transformation.

I will now be focusing my energy on the Effectus work that I enjoy most; client relationship building and consulting, and to have time available for some other activities, so I decided a few years ago that I needed to prepare someone to manage the business itself. As of July, Scott Adams assumes the role of General Manager at Effectus after working for the company for six years initially as a Principal Consultant and over the past two years as the National Consulting Manager which required a shift to Christchurch from Auckland.

Scott and I share the same values, business ethics and ambitions for Effectus so we will be continuing to improve our ability to provide value for our clients through effective use of information and technology. I am transitioning Effectus to someone who I trust and like and look forward to working with him in his new role.

Effectus White Paper – Creating a Change Ready Culture

As digital technology solutions and vendor expertise continues to mature, managing the deployment of new software solutions becomes less risky from a technology point of view. At a reasonable cost, you can spin up a virtual environment to prove the concept, provide training, and prepare for production release.

This exposes the bigger risk – getting the value from the deployment. It is not sufficient to enrol your staff in a training course and presume that they will then be motivated and skilled enough to drop their old ways of working and to embrace the new.

whitepaper-circleStructured Change Management is the practice of helping people adopt a new way of doing business. Typically, SCM runs alongside a deployment project and focuses on achieving measurable benefits, increasing staff adoption and facility with new tools and processes.

“Only 15% of employers with little or poor change management achieved project objectives, whereas 94% with excellent change management achieved or exceeded expectations”

Appointing a certified change practitioner will help your technology project manage staff adoption, overcome resistance and to achieve measurable business goals – but how do you create a change-ready culture within your organisation?

This whitepaper provides some challenges for you to consider about how you, and your business can leverage structured change management practice to embed change-willingness in your culture.
