“Transform today for a sustainable future tomorrow.”
Business, agile & leadership transformation.
The revolution of networked information technology flattens the world, and connects everyone 24/7, to their jobs, families, friends, shops, worldwide events and more. We are becoming a worldwide village again.
Traditional models of organising, managing and leading are increasingly failing to provide sustainable solutions to the current environment which is marked by Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity, and Ambiguity (VUCA). Our environment and economy, are evolving like never seen before, faster and in more unpredictable ways.
We cannot rely on the past anymore to guide us into the future. It is said that most kids in preschool today will work in jobs or careers that don’t exist yet. And they will have to adapt their carreer, over and over again.
This new context asks for an other mindset of leaders, employees and mankind in general.
What does this all means:
- We = more & more connected: the world = flat again.
- World becomes increasingly complex and chaotic.
- The West no longer holds a monopoly on brain power or innovation.
- Knowledge is available anywhere in no time and at no cost.
- Information is abundant yet not always reliable or relevant.
- Technological innovations are just part of the game, and no longer make the difference with competitors. ‘Hot’ tech today, is in no time available at no cost. Old fashioned already tomorrow.
- Traditional leadership styles, management skills, mindsets and organisational structures no longer work in this context. Even education has to be reconsidered.
“Disruptive and game changing new business models are popping up, and will change the economic landscape forever”
“Current economic behaviors seems to get less predictable and change at an ever accelerating pace”
“The network and digital revolution is going so fast that we don’t have any clue anymore what the future will bring.”
True Value Innovators: “We are very passionate when it comes to helping companies, employees, teams, parents and kids to acquire the necessary new mindsets and skills to surf the powerful waves of societal, technological and business innovation.”
Quote Trans4Mation: “Traditional leaders, believe they can ‘manage’ the transformation process. Most leaders believe that Agile transformation are nothing more than using new project management tools. This is NOT possible. That is the #1 reason for the failure of organizational transformations (of any kind).”
Where can you make the difference?
Becoming future ready and staying future proof demands TODAY a different mindset of every company, all leaders ànd employees.
It’s all about creating on a continuous basis your own future: “You need to rethink your framework with new eyes, again and again, to stay relevant in the current (business) playfield.”
This means that beyond the normal operational innovation, strategic innovation becomes key: new (disruptive) business plan generation and vision building, as well as profound innovations of processes, communications, services and collaboration, are needed now.
TRUE ORGANIZATIONAL AGILITY
Figures confirm that leaders know very well that organizational transformation is needed. The word ‘transformation’ is everywhere. Companies are very busy with transforming.
Yet, there are very few successful agile transformations. Most fail. How can leaders lead real transformations that will bring about true organizational agility?
Some essential keys:
It all starts with senior management: highly effective leadership, both individual and collective, demands in this context, a different leadership mindset than ever before. Managers should become creative leaders, instead of just being reactive managers.
A transformation has to be guided by a comprehensive integral framework. It asks a methodology that embodies a deep understanding of the nature of organizational change: individual mindset transformation of leadership and employees, cultural change, system change ànd new practices/methods, are interconnected. You can’t change one without the other. Count in also the human development factor, and you understand that a transformation can only truely happen, when this lead by multidisciplinary experience.
Our mission?: “Helping organizations, teams, leaders and employees, as well as kids and society as a whole, to become and stay future-proof. Now and in the future.”
What?: “We facilitate strategic innovations and coach leaders in leading real transformations that will bring about true organizational agility.”
Our Social Responsibility is to learn children to stay design thinkers.
“We cannot predict the future, but we can learn you to shape it on a continuous basis.”
Every piece of the puzzle is connected:
True Value Innovators is an integral agile transformation company that doesn’t just focus on one aspect of transformation, but rather provides a systemic, integral approach that combines these concepts, from which one cannot work without the other:
- Business transformation based on Design Thinking.
- Agile Transformation.
- Leadership Transformation.
And of course, our kids are our future. So it is our social responsibility to teach our children these mindsets and skills, too.
We are NON TRADITIONAL TRANSFORMATION COACHES:
We are picky:
We want to help our clients achieve real and sustainable difference, and create true added value for all stakeholders. Therefore we only accept those assignments where there is a true intention from the top down to adopt a different leadership, culture, mindset and business strategy.
“When we don’t have the right team or we can’t make it available, we won’t take the assignment. We will not assign a collection of available consultants from our network for the sake of getting the deal and making money. We only assign True Value Innovators as a high-performance team, composed of those we believe and trust can make the difference for our clients.
Our goal is first and foremost: create true and lasting added value.
No, we are not naïve. Just very authentic, skilled, and convinced that our approach, expertise and mindset can create a better future for all. And of course, profitability is important. But profit is a result. Not the goal.
As a team of True Value Innovators, we have comprehensive expertise and experience in applying the integral agile framework and its related methods, techniques, and tools needed to future-proof any organisation.
More specifically, our expertise spans:
Foresight and Scenario Planning
Business Design Thinking
Business Model Generation
Value Proposition Generation
Self-steering Multidisciplinary Teams
Operational and Organisational Excellence
Comprehensive shop floor-to-board level business experience:
We have extensive business experience, at all levels of organisations including board membership. We too started out on the shop floor in operations, gradually working our way through management to the highest levels. Eventually setting up new companies and/or setting out to advise and coach others.
Coaching from experience, not books:
As a collective of motivated and mutually-supportive independent professionals (iPros) working together as highly performant, close-knitted teams, we experience first-hand both the challenges and benefits of agile, self-steering organisations. We are uniquely positioned to fully appreciate the struggles that traditional organisations and their various levels of management go through in learning and adopting the new mindsets and skills required to deal with complexity and disruption in the 21st century.
We fundamentally differentiate from other consulting companies in this. They may claim expertise in agile transformation but lack authentic real-life experience in what that means or requires, merely preaching to others what they have read in some books.
Expansive business & expertise network:
We have an extensive international network of True Value Innovators and like-minded advisors sharing our vision of the future. A network that gradually but continuously expands with each new business relationship.
Through that network we can provide our clients with access to a broad range of complementary expertise, techniques and methods that may be relevant to their business challenges, and help set up highly performant, self-managing cross-company teams.
