Identifying the North Star

Imagine the future in detail; how does it look like? 
Defining the North Star will guide all decisions through the transformation.  
Each transformation should have its own mission and vision fitting into your company’s overall strategy.

Go vs No Go? That is the question

Understanding the Case for Change and the value of the  initiative towards the business, a “Go vs No Go” decision must be made and communicated to the appropriate parties regarding the transformation.

Why should we change?

It is easy for people to go back to the “old ways” and ignore the transformation that just occurred, even if they were part of it.
The execution of an effective post-transformation support and training strategy, plus measuring the right success metrics, is important to making change permanent.

Let’s go Together

Small and large transformations following agile, waterfall or a mixed methodology, will face challenges.  The key is being able to foresee them, avoid them or solve them.  Nepanoa's transformation experts have seen it all and are ready to confront this endeavor with you, side by side.
