In a recent LinkedIn post entitled “It’s About Connecting people”, Airbus CIO, Luc Hennekens, makes a strong case regarding why it is critical for them to empower their employees with the right tools to facilitate collaboration, boost productivity, and deliver a better work/life balance.
At the heart of their digital transformation is their recent adoption of Google Cloud’s G Suite. While we certainly view the Airbus adoption of G Suite as a significant step in the right direction, this move in itself will not guarantee a successful digital transformation. There is strong evidence that any meaningful and lasting change must be supported by the constant mapping of human connections between different parts of the organization to identify and strengthen the most beneficial ones, while eliminating the ones that waste valuable company resources.

This week, we are starting a new conversation about organizational culture change. We have invited Bernie White from New Zealand to join our conversation that will be held in the upcoming weeks. Bernie is a partner at Better Change, our strategic partner consultancy specializing in “helping people change for the better every day” in New Zealand. He is an expert in organizational change management and will share his experience about a cultural change project that took place in a large public service department in New Zealand.
It’s the first week of our four-week conversation about the importance of influencers in organizational change management, which has always been difficult to achieve and even more challenging to manage.
