KCS Refresh

KCS Refresh

If your KCS Practices need a review, our KCS Refresh will revitalize your KCS program. A refresh is vital if you are seeking to adjust and improve performance and to realize more of the KCS benefits.  You may have new team members or leadership or there’s been an organizational change. As  a result you may be seeing a decline in participation and quality. We are here to assist. We will arrange an on-site visit, and observe and interview. We’ll make recommendations, then work with your teams to build a tailored plan to get your program where you want it to be. A KCS Refresh can avoid a costly restart later.

 

Objectives:

  • Identify where old habits are re-emerging and good practices need re-enforcement
  • Assess program maturity
  • Determine changes needed to get your KCS program up to speed according to KCS v6 good practice.
  • Review where process and technology improvements can be made
  • Co-create a 12-18 month strategy, with your teams engaged

 

Outcomes:

Executive sponsors re-engaged

Benefits measured and communicated

Teams excited

Your KCS investment is maximized.

 

Whatever the program of work, we’ll ensure your teams have the confidence and understanding to manage knowledge well into the future.

Change Management and Coaching with Prosci® and ADKAR®

Effective coaching is proven to be of benefit in KCS Adoption. While technology and process are key enablers of the KCS methodology, KCS is first and foremost about people and their behavior. KCS Coaches are the change agents within the support organization; they model and promote the behavior change required for a successful KCS adoption.

 

The Consortium for Innovation (CSI) has seen greater success of KCS® adoption when organizations have used effective coaching and change management methods. The Prosci Method is known (by CSI) to be an effective change management method to increase the success of KCS adoption. The Catalynk coaching approach is underpinned by the Prosci® Change Management, Leadership Alignment and ADKAR® methods.

On-going Support and Mentoring

Alongside the training we offer, we find that KCS adoption is more successful if consulting time is available to engage team members for a hand-over and knowledge transfer.

 

We can assist with support and mentoring or to work inside the adoption or refresh project. We’re happy to review the options to design a package that works for your KCS journey.
