When the winds of change blow, build windmills, not walls.
Let’s face it: The energy sector is confronted with transformations like never before, such as megatrends, digitalisation, cost pressure, and new business models. You say you are confronted by change? We say it’s all about change management!
Changes, upheavals and transformations have come to stay – this applies all the more to the energy sector.. Falling wholesale prices, globalisation, a tendency towards more flexible energy markets…the list goes on and on. What this means in concrete terms is that new approaches, strategies and business models must be developed.
Large energy providers and public utility companies have started to do their homework: A multitude of restructuring and transformation processes have been initiated and implemented in recent years, particularly in the fields of plant construction and infrastructure.
Unfortunately, “soft” topics such as communication with customers and securing the acceptance of employees are often at the bottom of the list of priorities. Empowerment? Involvement? Comprehensive change management? Not seen as important. Although these aspects provide the basis for successfully implementing changes, they are sadly missing.
A study conducted by BLUBERRIES revealed that the energy sector is bottom of the league when it comes to the multidimensional implementation of change processes. The study participants were critical of the fact that too few change management instruments were being used, while three quarters of the employees surveyed were in favour of more comprehensive focus on change management. Furthermore, it was found that instruments and methods do not reach those most affected by changes – neither executives nor employees. As a result, the opportunity is missed to actively involve those most impacted in transformation processes. All that remains are more or less unstructured change management programs that disappear as quickly as they came, wasting valuable human and financial resources.
We at BLUBERRIES are convinced that effective change management supported by the pillars of vision, communication, participation and qualification creates a win-win situation for everybody involved. So why wait? Together, we will find the right way forward so that the “wind of change” remains at your back instead of blowing in your face.
