Transform middle management

When it applies

When an organization needs to mobilize the skills of its middle managers, motivating them and turning them into "changemakers" or drivers of transformation.

When traditional training sessions are not enough to drive an organic change of middle management.


Problem it solves

  • The difficulty of getting all middle management involved in a process of organic change, when everybody already has a full agenda and it is almost impossible to synchronize free time slots.

  • The need for people from other areas of the organization to participate (HR, Transformation Office, Innovation, etc.)

Added value by delibera

  • Asynchronous participation favours moving forward with initiatives without having to coincide in time.

  • Prior deliberation greatly enriches synchronous participation (in-person or digital) because it gives time to think, adding intelligence and perspective that lead to better insights. Defining the role of the manager with managers themselves, and building a clear and attractive narrative with them that sums up desired behaviours.

  • Facilitates the management of large projects through the Dashboard, creating “areas” for dialogue at different hierarchical levels.

  • Traceability of all contributions.
