Change Management

Start the future now! Drive the change!

Getting started

navigation at work

Navigation at work stands for our holistic 360° approach on change and contains 3 key elements:

  • Change Strategy
    • As a starter developing a promising strategy determines targets, roadmaps/action plans and success metrics
  • HR and organizational development
    • On the next stage people beeing obliged to execute the strategy need to be motivated and  enabled, maybe educated and trained to do so.
    • The organizational set up needs specific adjustments to provide the company with the approriate framework.
  • Marketing & Sales
    • Change wouldn’t makes any sense if it won’t cause any economic benefit.
    • Now it’s all about customers and selling products and services.

Change managed by Germans with structure & passion – that’s no contradiction!

The most important emotion to drive change is basically anger. There’s no fundamental change or social or political revolution that could have taken place without people beeing angry about circumstances and environment they were living in. In business life anger is not constructive and productive!

What your business needs instead is

  1. Passion for your business!
  2. Motivation to start the change process!
  3. Discipline to accomplish your change goals!

But that’s not sufficient – to reach the safe port your business needs a clear direction, a sophisticated action plan and structured processes to execute. And that’s what Germans usually do!

But we are different: navigation at work stands for a combination of structure with passion and fun! For more than 60 years and in particular since the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989 we prove that change managed by Germans is one of the most exciting success stories of the business world.
