A Lodestar is a “guiding light” that serves as an inspiration, model or guide.
LODESTAR Special Projectsact as catalysts for change and our experienced team can guide you through the complex process of managing the organisation during difficult times.
Change is inevitable in the current turmoil in world markets and economies as organisations have to react to fast changing circumstances. Of course, conditions change rapidly and organisations must adapt their business model to meet the future and not bury their heads in the sand.
However, major change in an organisation should be avoided, if at all possible, as it is extremely unsettling and disruptive for all stakeholders. Many organisations have admitted poor change management failed to achieve their objectives and had a detrimental effect on their business.
A major change initiative indicates the organisation accepts it is not fit to face the future and is a tacit admission that management strategy is flawed, with a danger that credibility and goodwill of the business will be severely damaged.
Organisations must encourage continuous change as part of their culture and plan for the long term future so they ride the economic, financial and technological storm and emerge in a strong position.
LODESTAR Special Projects can lead your organisation through the current economic turmoil with their experience of revitalising under-performing organisations.
