Transformation programmes

Do you need to increase speed in change? Are you lacking resources, competence or agility to meet changing circumstances? We believe that agile transformation programmes with high people engagement accelerate change and increase your odds to truly transform your business.

Are you on top of your transformation?

We at Verona Consulting will bring substantial knowhow and experience to accelerate your change. We are proud to support growing and renewing companies as well as some of the largest corporates in Finland e.g. ABB in their transformation journeys. How do we do it?

  • Agile program management – Transforming your business to enable your strategy is not an easy task! It goes without saying that planning is required prior to starting a transformation and plans need revisiting along the way. Therefore, agile transformation program management is essential.
  • Customer-centric processes and Lean – Today’s Lean thinking brings Lean principles to the core of the organization’s strategy, management model, programme execution and culture. At best, continuous improvement is part of the organization’s values and it is enhanced with visual leadership, active leader participation and knowledgeable Lean community.
  • Change leadership & people engagement – Transformation is not a technical exercise. People are in the centre of your successful transformation. They are the engine and the target of your capability development. Excellent transformation requires inspirational and practical change leadership.
  • Benefit Realization – A rigorous yet focused benefit realization model and tracking ensures that you stay on top of your transformation and enables you to gain measurable results.

Leadership and culture development

Is your organizational culture or leadership capabilities hindering you to transform at speed? Do you need to take action to bring your leadership to the next level? We believe that strong organizational culture that is aligned with your strategy results in better performance.

Verona Consulting can coach your leaders, managers and experts to build up their competencies to lead in changing circumstances. We will guide and coach you to sustain change.

How to succeed in building a strong leadership capability and organizational culture?

  • Leadership and organizational development – Succeeding in a rapidly changing operating environment requires modern leadership and the ability to constantly renew. Building a strong leadership capability, including leadership processes, competencies, systems and behaviors, and agile management model create a sound foundation for improving your business performance.
  • Strategic competence development – Growth and renewal require the clear definition of needed future strategic leadership competences, assessment of the level of competence and systematic development. Clearly focused development actions to the critical few, most impactful competences and behaviors will efficiently drive your change as well as strategy execution.
  • Leadership and training programs – Leadership competencies are a corner stone of capability development. Good leadership and continuous learning attracts talent and is a competitive advantage for the company. Tailored leadership and training programs for leaders, managers and experts will strengthen wide-ranging leadership skills, influencing and co-operation skills and ability to lead change in management teams, transformation programs, projects and multiple areas of expertise.
  • Coaching – Coaching for groups or individuals is a learning process where skills, methods, behaviour models and practices are learned. Together with other leadership development, it strengthens leadership skills, improves decision-making ability, builds acceptance of organizational change and ensures continuous improvement.
  • Culture shaping – Many organizations forget the importance of people and culture. Culture is intangible, multi-dimensional, and complex: culture development requires a change in action and behaviour that ultimately changes underlying beliefs, norms, and values. Yet shaping organizational culture is often required to improve employee experience, bring sustainable results and sustain change.
