To an organisation doctor, each business is like a patient. When symptoms such as poor performance surface, the first step is to put a stethoscope (set of tools) on the organisation and conduct a proper diagnosis. Symptoms and cause are never the same.
The diagnosis is then shared with the organisation (patient) and a plan of change (treatment) is then agreed on. What is most important is that the plan of change is agreed to by the organisation and that the process starts and is motivated from within
Mergers and acquisitions are often an integral part of organisation change. Some change processes can achieve quick wins but on the whole, change is like going on a diet. It is usually a long term process which requires disciplined dedication
and commitment from within the organisation. Dr Parker is a specialist at facilitating change processes towards high performance.
