Change Management

We usually start a project with an idea of what it is that we wish to achieve, build or create.  We have an idea of what the future end state is and why we started the project in the first place.

But how often do we get part way through our project, become disillusioned, frustrated or bored with it and its abandoned, left with the pile of other half completed projects?

Projects fail, when we fail to create a clear picture of what success looks like.

If you knew that a decision you were making for your business could constrain its future potential, would you do it?

Surprisingly business leaders make these decisions unknowingly every day.  This decision impacts your two most expensive business assets; property & people.

So guys, we’re just over a week into 2018……. How are your New Years resolutions going? Maybe you’re finding it difficult to resist the midweek vino’s you promised you’d ditch, those 5am wake up calls for the gym are repeatedly being snoozed or you’ve succumbed to the choc chip cookies in the office like us here at MARSDEN Collective.....

Over the last six months, I've been gathering insights into my own unique personality and personal values, the things that light my fire and drag me down.  One of the most recent "Aha!" moments for me, involved looking at my personal values and our Organisational Values and then digging a bit deeper in order to understand the 'behaviours' of these values.

How often have you been somewhere and instantly felt good about being there?  Somewhere you remember with a fondness that takes you back there?  Is there a particular coffee shop that you’re drawn too? Is it the smell of the brewing coffee, the friendly smile that welcomes you and asks “the usual?”, the gentle hum of the surrounding conversations, ambient lighting and interior detailing?

Get a Test Fit

Preparing test fits on your shortlisted tenancy options gives you a multitude of benefits before making a critical decision in your property acquisition process.  It provides you with the opportunity to visualise how your requirements fit into each unique building footprint and to sanity check your requirements, before you sign that lease; do we really need 6 meeting rooms?

A vision statement is sometimes called a picture of your business in the future but it’s so much more than that. Your vision statement is your inspiration, the framework for all your strategic planning.

A vision statement answers the question, “Where do we want to go?”

You now know how much space you need and your brand position, now where is that ideal space located? This is the perfect opportunity to set your business up for greatness and that means you have the opportunity to consider where your business would be most productive.

You’re busting at the seams, and you need to look for a new office space to house your growing business. As you’ve grown, you may have found your business model has evolved and your strategy is more focused.   The location you’ve been calling home just doesn’t fulfill all the needs of your vision, you not only need to move offices, you need a change of scenery.
