According to Harvard Business School professor John P. Kotter, around 70-80% of all transformation projects fail. Despite the multiple studies, trainings, and trials done on the subject, no one has truly figured out how to transform successfully. Such an ambitious goal is a gamble for the whole company. You need to clearly define the goal and avoid any uncertainties along the way.
KNOW WHERE YOU ARE ON THE JOURNEY
The most common cause for failure is an ambiguous target. Without anyway to measure or track your progress to the goal, you can’t course correct along the way to make sure the company is moving in the right direction. This realization led us to develop a tool that acutely measures success within Rhythmix— the Haufe Success Score. With regular measurements that populate simple data visualizations, the tool ensures that your company’s orientation isn’t lost during the transformation project.
NO HALF MEASURES
Going from a classic publishing house to a digital pioneer, Haufe is no stranger to successful transformations. Our insight comes from a place of experience. Sustainable transformation only succeeds if you account for a company’s three dimensions: organizational design, people empowerment, and technology. This is a core tenant found in all our solutions; and the Haufe Success Score is no different. Each KPI is only considered successful when it reaches a target threshold at the organization, employee, and technology dimensions.
Iterative success checks measure the performance of Rhythmix. Due to the adaptive Design of our solutions we are able to constantly readjust so we can accelerate our approach and ignite success.
SETTING THE STANDARD
The measurements occur not only during but also after the Rhythmix process to ensure your current state and desired goal match. With this gathered data from a vast amount of companies of various sizes and industries, Haufe has at its hand an enormous amount knowledge about transformation. This allows us to determine an industry standard that companies can measure themselves against.
