What we do

M ore than 76% of all change management initiatives fail to achieve their intended outcomes. At Challenge Advisory, our change management approach is deep rooted in behavioural economics. That’s why we succeed.

The drivers of change in the public sector are not due to competitive pressures but a need to do more, better, with less. Budgetary uncertainty, talent shortages, retirement, technology and changing citizen expectations are forcing governments to rethink and reorganise.

Successful change requires placing people at the centre.

Why delivering and implementing emotionally intelligent change management is not just the kind thing to do, it’s a strategic imperative which ensure sustainable, long lasting change.

Some of the reasons why change management fails

Successful change management in the public sector comes from adaptability and amenability in implementing change. The greatest obstacles to successful change are Siloing, flawed communication and the lack of buy-in.

A smarter way to approach and implement cost reduction

The effectiveness of cost reduction policies varies between the public sector and the private sector. We explore how the public sector can adopt a smarter approach to cost reduction and reduce the need for redundancies.

What we think

In the private sector, responsiveness to change is a modern competitive advantage. In the public sector, the need to measure and react to citizen feedback will exponentially heighten.

When leadership is truly invested in change, our models predict a 30 percent increase in stickiness. When employee contributions are valued, engagement increase by 24%. When change is emotionally intelligent, post program success increases by 22%. At Challenge Advisory, our data driven approach to change management has not dehumanised the process.
