who want to ignite
positive change in warp speed.
Do you recognize these situations in your company?
I kickstart changes, but my team seems to be dragging their feet, or worse, nothing's moving at all.
In the management team, we keep trying to tackle things the right way, but we can't seem to get it together. Nobody knows why.
Within the departments, things run smoothly, but cross-department collaboration is a mess. Areas providing internal services constantly feel overloaded.
We launch (too many) change initiatives. Often, they turn into uninspiring affairs, missing all deadlines or failing to deliver what's really needed.
We lack a solid decision-making culture. We have plenty of meetings, but too often, they lead to nowhere... or the wrong place.
We're missing an external perspective on what truly matters. Everyone sets their own priorities. Sometimes it feels like some folks here only do what they fancy.
Why do these issues persist?
Because we often fail to look at things radically honestly in critical situations, even though we know better. No time, quick-fix thinking, or organizational blindness leads to hasty decisions that are implemented slowly, painfully, or never at all.
You've probably experienced this in your company, right?
So, the all important question is:
Do you want to continue witnessing and accepting such behavior in your organization on a daily basis - we call it 'as usual' ... or do you wish for an organization that approaches organizational development 'radically honestly'?
"As Usual" Organizational Development
"Radically Honest" Organizational Development
= No clear decisions are made, and if they are, they are implemented slowly, painfully, or never at all.
= Clear decisions are made and executed with focus, leading to outrageously swift positive changes.
= Only those who have mentally resigned are happy (because they no longer need to feel guilty).
= Everyone is happy; they are freed from an extremely laborious, endlessly repetitive change theater.
Change Punk takes your organizational development to an unprecedented level
What is Change Punk?
Change Punk is the most radically honest approach to organizational development, based on the following three qualities.
Lazy: Those who are "lazy in action" - meaning they don't want to waste time and energy – consequently become creative and focused. Therefore, at the beginning of every complex change, laziness is the better busy!
Cheeky: Change Punk doesn't care about dogmas, fashions and trends. It's all about igniting "outrageously fast" positive changes instead of swimming in the "trendy hype." In other words, it's about shifting from being a "methods junkie" to a "complexity master".
Intelligent: Change Punk always keeps the task at hand, people, and the entire organization in focus, combining business administration with concepts from psychology (behavioral economics) and sociology (systems theory). This is the toolkit to master complexity!
To implement "radically honest organizational development" (= Change Punk) in companies, we've developed Change Punk thinking tools. These tools...
help uncover contradictions within the system arising from different expert perspectives (interdisciplinary).
unite various viewpoints (hierarchical and departmental) on common goals or desired change.
are always "multilingual" and as complex as necessary to serve the purpose, the people involved, and the organizational system.
