Make a decision is to embark on a path. "To choose is to renounce" the saying goes. It is therefore important to ensure that the road taken is one that will lead to the desired effects. Enterprises want to be sure that they will make their customers more than satisfied, that they will keep a step ahead of their competitors, that they will make the best use of their resources, that their teams will stay on board all the road along! Organizations want to make their business model more efficient, more in tune with the aspirations of all, more respectful of the environment, in short more sustainable!!
|Our support aims to accelerate the positioning of our customers on sustainable development trajectories, in an efficient and reassuring way.|
An end-user-oriented approach
To build a solution that meets the frustrations of the market, the most important thing is to put the end-user at the center of the solution process. Therefore, in all our actions and tasks for the benefit of our customers, we are integrating their own customers in the process. The ultimate goal is to simplify the lives of our customers' customers.
Thus, for example, we created Mobi33 by involving nurses and healthcare providers at each stage of the project, and by making them effective co-designers of this software which aims at facilitating the life of the home nursing.
An operational excellence approach
Making companies stronger, more agile, more excellent in their operations is one of the goals of the xFIVE action, thanks to a set of improvement tools (lean, agile, ...) integrated into the 2A2CI methodology.
An approach that takes into account the complexity of change
Change is uncomfortable by essence. Indeed, we must get out of our "comfort zone", either individually or collectively. The process of change is complex and requires a continuous effort. And it is all the more marked when innovation is concerned, as innovation implies that one takes risks by venturing into the unknown. And because every organization seeks to (re) balance its functioning, it is very likely that a change that is not managed may finally lead to a step backwards, a situation before innovation or even a failure of this one...
That is why we support our clients' projects with change management actions. A clear vision of what is to be obtained by the change, understanding the real problems that will remain if one stays without change, and the example provided by the success of similar changes are all key factors. We also ensure involvement of opinion leaders within the business ecosystem so that there is a propagation and training effect within the team, and for other projects.
The principle of this change management is summarized in the equation np * V * S > Ω, where P & n = problem and its nature, V = vision, S = success and Ω = resistance to change.
An approach that puts people at the center
To ensure that our support process is accepted and integrated by customer's teams, we rely on a set of methodological coaching tools developed with the support of our partners. It is indeed key to work on both individual and collective aspects. And, in order to organize and develop the capacity of multidisciplinary teams to trust, we work in such a way that the group of people in charge takes full consciousness of the collective force developed by building on individual strengths. By working on confidence-making processes, we ensure that the group synergy transforms the gathering of individuals talents into a team, a much more efficient alloy than the mixing of the components.
An approach that integrates sustainable development
Generally, one defines sustainable development as "development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs"
Rather than adopting the traditional representation of People - Planet - Profit axes in three interconnected sets, we prefer to set up an inclusive approach in three concentric circles.
This representation is indeed much more representative of the balance that is needed when the company builds "sustainably". Indeed, the heart of entrepreneurial activity concerns is that to create added value in a broad sense (PROFIT), but it is sustainable only when it takes into account the needs and aspirations of all stakeholders (PEOPLE) and incorporate all this while considering the finiteness of resources and the global environment (PLANET).
Our ambition is to enable our customers to integrate in a sustainable way into business ecosystems they nourish and feed.
Our involvement goes beyond simple project development. We want to set up, develop and complete complete chains, placing them in their economic, societal, environmental context, in a real approach of Circular Enonomy.
We want to ensure that the innovations of our customers contribute to a more just and sustainable world.
