Evidence-Based Change Management

A human-centric approach to driving and managing organizational change

Evidence-Based Change Management

Managing organizational change is complex and many recurring challenges have their roots in behavioral science. Evidence-Based Change Management (EBCM) offers a robust framework for navigating change by answering questions like…

  • What evidence-based strategies lead to successful and sustainable change?
  • How do you effectively communicate change to drive engagement?
  • Which behavioral factors influence employee resistance to change?
  • How do you deal with change fatigue?

At the heart of our approach is the alignment of change initiatives with the intricate dynamics of human behavior. Leveraging the latest in behavioral research, we tailor change management strategies to fit the unique culture and goals of your organization while making it more resilient and adaptable.

With over 47.000 employees across 168 countries, they rely on constant innovation to keep up with a rapidly changing world. We delivered a keynote combined with three workshops in which the attendants implemented the evidence-based change interventions they learned.
