If your workplace is like most, you might feel the pressure to innovate your way of working and leverage new technologies. Unfortunately, like in most organisations, people have reached their limit for change. Yes, change saturation and fatigue are real.
But whilst we need to pivot, change and transform faster, most businesses still grapple with how to manage change.
In fact, the low median success rates for change, between 19% for cultural change to 81% for strategic change, show that organisational change management needs a facelift.
The good news is:
93% of our surveyed clients were able to sustain and evolve changes in-house with the plan, tools and consulting provided by Approach Services
Our 6C’s Change Management approach makes evidence-based and practical Change Management accessible for small to large organisations. We are almost 5 times more affordable than the Big 4 consultancies

A structured yet flexible way to manage change and create real results
We understand the risks of business transformations. You might be worried about the additional stress and mental health issues, a drop in performance or customer satisfaction, higher turnover and loss of talent or conflicts and problems leading to siloed unsustainable changes.
From change strategy to communicating change and everything in between– our team of expert consultants can make it feel easy. We focus on the right levers for the human side of your project whilst keeping an eye on the hard side of change management.
Our 6C's Change Management approach deploys a modular structure:
The Co-creation workshops deliver your visual transition roadmap
The Co-Sensing observations deliver the impact and risk assessment
Co-planning delivers a Change Management plan closely integrated with your project plan, outlining communication, sponsorship, training, coaching and resistance management.
The EXCELerate Change Leadership Program delivers empowered Change Leaders
The Change Advocacy mapping and training amplifies your change activities
Our monitoring and accountability system delivers feedback to inform course Corrections
It was a delight working with Scitech, a well-regarded non-for-profit challenging their status quo with a bold strategy transition. The strategic transformation was highly dependent on behavioral changes. As an added challenge Scitech had never applied change management to any project yet. Approach Services delivered the entire executive, leadership and change champion change training. At the same time, we deployed a change specialist and change manager within the PMO to establish best-practices change management. 95% of all surveyed staff were extremely satisfied with our services.
Alliance Against Depression
The Alliance Against Depression (AAD) approached us to develop a Change Communication Plan and schedule covering an 18 months project to communicate the community-wide change to 120 stakeholders across different organisations and 7 channels from social media to events. The communication plan and schedule were developed within 4 weeks and rolled out successfully across the relevant stakeholders throughout the community. We ensured the project lead had all tools, strategies, and skills to communicate the change effectively and implement the plan.
Approach Services was engaged to assist with a 12-month internal communications strategy project that needed to break down a complex story. The overall aim was to 'change the conversation' across the whole of Alzheimer’s WA and gain buy-in from all stakeholders for the cultural change. The scope of work had a very tight timeline. We worked collaboratively to deliver game-changing work. The result was an effective rapid change plan combined with a communication plan and schedule tailored to all 200 stakeholders across the organisation.
