Aligning Vision and Values
As a highly professional and convincing facilitator, Fast Forward managed to guide us through the difficult process of making the corporate strategy universe of our company both tangible and relevant to our employees. It is by no means an easy task to run 2 multi cultural sessions with up to 130 people from 12 different cultures - Fast Forward did this and did so with tremendous success. Looking at the feedback from the participants, Fast Forward managed to read the audience and thereby make the new vision, mission and values both understandable and appreciated. When dealing with everything from highly educated academics to blue collar workers, one must strike a fine balance - therefore it was clear to us from the beginning that we needed the support from highly professional process facilitators - Fast Forward and their skilled personnel was our choice and will most definitely be so again.
- Specific Outputs: Enhanced feeling of being part of "One Company" by the employees.
- Individual tasks now seen by the employees in a broader context (does it fit with the vision, mission and values?).
- Efforts more aligned than ever before. • More focus in the organisation – ("...we finally have a clear direction"...).
- Enhanced winner mentality in the organisation (..."we want to go places in this company!"...).
- Managers feel better empowered (..."now we can link our decisions up to an overarching goal!"...).
