WHAT MAKES PULSCIPLINE™ DIFFERENT

 

We implement cultural change faster, cheaper, and with fewer headaches. 

Measurable

Progress is measured throughout the transformation process; we measure the effectiveness of the organization in managing the change, the progress made, and the momentum of change.

Structured

Since the cultural-change strategy and support platform contain all the needed elements, the resulting roadmap can tell you at any time if you are a week ahead or a week behind schedule.

Robust

The structure and roadmap are designed in a way that allows weaknesses of a previous action or step to be quickly corrected in following actions. This built-in capability results in a very robust change system that can handle effectively the inhibitors and surprises inherent in all change efforts.

Motivating

It creates a positive and supportive environment for personal and organizational change. 

Engaging

It fully engages leaders and employees in the change process. Everyone is aware of their role and work together as a team to achieve the desired changes. 

Comprehensive

The Pulscipline™ Change System can drive cultural change from A to Z. We help clients design a robust change strategy and then provide the guidance, training, and coaching needed to implement it.

WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY

A practical, seamless, and comprehensive system for implementing cultural change

Customer Description of Pulscipline™

"The [Pulscipline™] change method differs from anything I had heard of before, by being extremely “appropriate”: comprehensive whilst hands-on and realistic. As most HR Managers do, I know of Lewin, Beer or Shaw’s change models. I have read about different changes strategies, whether normative-re-educative, rational-empirical, power-coercive or action-centered strategy. But never before had I envisaged the global A to Z change process the way you do, integrating each factor in a logical and structured way. Resistance to change is treated with such in-depth attention that the inhibitors can get expressed (awareness is not enough!) and the proposed step-by-step attitude surely ensures success. The use of PulseSurveys is another element that shows concrete areas of focus with clear improvement priorities to be targeted, involving short and long term development plans. The method you propose is in my view structured enough to let no chance possible to failure but encompasses a wide and large scope enough to entitle the adaptability to any specific company or change process."
