Change Management

Change Management

As the automotive and transport industries continue to move through a period of extreme change, many organizations that have been relatively stable for decades are being forced to evolve to remain competitive. Companies that work within these industries are typically large, complex organizations that may employ tens of thousands of people across the globe. As many companies have found, driving change through organizations of this type can be extremely challenging and requires not only a well-thought-out strategy but effective management and tactical execution.

At Ricardo Strategic Consulting (RSC), our consultants use their decades of change management experience to help our clients evolve to meet the new challenges of the automotive and transport industries while retaining the attributes that made them successful to begin with. To effect change in an organization, business leaders need to obtain buy-in from those employees whose roles will change. At RSC, we use our unique combination of technical and commercial experience to manage change across multiple client functions, from engineering and development through to supply chain and finance. We align this support with extensive project management capabilities, which is key for enacting lasting change in an organization in a smooth, orderly fashion.

Through our proven methods, deep industry expertise, and global reach, RSC provides our clients with alignment of the company’s culture, values, people, and behaviours to innovate, improve, and increase performance. Effective change management generates value for our clients through the sustained, collective actions of employees who are responsible for designing, executing, and evolving with the changed environment.
