Organizations need to move their enterprises to a more economically efficient and sustainable model. Traditionally, change management consultants work with a senior team to first clarify the organization’s vision. The challenge, however, is this team does not have all of the answers. IPI’s positive change management model works by employing the collective wisdom and knowledge of the your entire organization and using this to inform the vision.
Positive change is about taking action and doing things that move your organization toward its vision of a better future. When this vision is shared among those responsible for making change happen, implementation time goes down and engagement and performance go up.

It also reveals that solutions generated or adapted from inside organizations are much more likely to work than those imposed from experts on the outside. Appreciative Inquiry, Rapid Strategy Development, Positive Deviance, Rapid Prototyping, and other strength-based change methodologies are some of the tools we use in partnership with you to facilitate positive change.
