Culture Assessment & Reporting

Situation

The gofastforward team built a survey with recommendations on where vision, values and strategy was not being realised across the organisation and why.

How the programme was delivered

A series of interviews representing every department and level of the organisation with subsequent detailed report, assessing quality of management and communications and quick wins available to the organisation.

The outcome

A guide on why change was not happening and a road map of what needed to be done to deliver required outcomes.


Management Development Programme

Situation

An oil and gas processing site was in the middle of a significant change programme. As a remote site, the site was being asked to align its processes, practices and culture with central, corporate policy.

How we worked with the client to identify development needs and gather input to design an intervention

Pre-programme site visits, interviews and 360° profiling informed the learning need and subsequent programme design from multiple viewpoints and offered a keen understanding of culture.

How the programme was delivered

A monthly programme of group leqrning and one-to-one coaching delivered over 6 months with learning application in the workplace reviewed after each module.

The outcome

Seen and unseen Issues were identified and addressed in strategic areas of the operation. The result has been greater communication , cooperation and productivity with significant gains in efficiency.

According to our client

‘gofastforward challenged our leaders to express their concerns and assumptions; to agree actions for improvement but most importantly to demonstrably shoulder the responsibilities of leadership on site in a manner that is entirely in keeping with corporate intent. I had high expectations of this programme, I’m pleased to report that those expectations have been surpassed.’
