PULSCIPLINE™ Cultural-Change System
100 % Success Rate
RESULTS OBTAINED WITH PULSCIPLINE™
Pulscipline™ provides the structure, support, and methodology to help organizations go from their current culture to their desired culture.
Pulscipline™ has a 100% success rate in achieving the change objectives when applied as a complete integrated system. It generates sustainable improvement in the culture, leadership, and results of the organization.
In order to achieve the cultural change objectives, the Pulscipline™ methodology develops organizational capability in the following areas:
Increases an organization's agility and ability to manage change
Develops the change-management skills Top Leaders need to successfully
direct their organizations through change
Dramatically increases leadership competence at all levels
Increases engagement of employees
Creates a working environment that brings the best out in people
Strengthens the competitive advantage of the organization
Builds leadership systems critical for implementing change
and sustaining high performance
Generates significant and sustainable improvement in results
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.
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.
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.
It creates a positive and supportive environment for personal and organizational change.
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.
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.
We implement cultural change faster, cheaper, and with fewer headaches.
KEY FEATURES OF THE CHANGE SYSTEM
Contains the methodology to identify and eliminate inhibitors of change in the design phase and during the transformation process.
Contains the methodology needed to achieve the cultural-change objectives, and if needed, to restore damaged working environments.
We use a coaching-intensive training program to develop the leadership and change-management skills leaders need to lead their teams through change and overcome the first wall of inhibitors.
We use a PulseSurvey to measure the human and cultural aspects of change. The PulseSurvey measures areas, such as; employee buy-in, strength of inhibitors, implementation effectiveness, progress made, and momentum.
We provide key leaders with coaching throughout the transformation process. These periodic coaching sessions, which we call PulseStrategy Sessions, are used to review the strategy and determine the next step actions to move their function through the next step in the transformation process. These sessions are critical for developing competence in leading organizations through change.

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."
HR Manager, Innovative Silicon SA
