About MOVE

MOVE: Achieving convincing results in challenging projects faster and at less costs

If a company has to work out a new strategy, a reorganization concept, a cost reduction plan for a business or a sales increase program, often many employees or departments have to be integrated and to find a good solution together. Unfortunately, such projects with many participants often end up in endless meetings, few results and even less implementation commitment.

MOVE is an intelligent working and moderation method for conferences and workshops that allows you to work out convincing solutions in projects with many participants very efficiently, fast and target-oriented. Compared to classic moderation and project management approaches, MOVE saves significantly costs and time and even creates a higher motivation amongst all participants. MOVE is based on Prof. Stafford Beer´s kybernetic approach from his classic „Beyond Dispute: The Invention of Team Syntegrity“.

Whether it is a strategy workshop, change management, a concept development task with many participants or a roll-out-planning for a project across departments – in challenging projects, MOVE is the fastest and most effective way to transform a large group of people into committed and convinced actors with an intelligent action plan.

How it works

The basis of MOVE is a special, information-flow-optimized multistage power communication process which is based on Prof. Stafford Beer´s kybernetic approach from his classic book „Beyond Dispute: The Invention of Team Syntegrity“. A group of people is put into the special process for 2 or 3 days to systematically work on a company challenge or a problem that has been clearly defined in advance. Within the process, the main challenges and measures for the solution to the problem are identified by the team as a whole and transferred into meaningful and implementable action plans.

The work process itself consists of a cascade of several precisely planned and moderated power workshops dealing with aspects of the initial company challenge or problem. These moderated sessions are precisely planned and limited in time and based on target-oriented rules of communication.

Within the process, the entire know-how and problem-solving competence of all participants is systematically collected, combined and mutually inspired. This is reached through an intelligently organized exchange process of  participants and topics.

In this way, best possible, comprehensive and consensus-based solutions arise, which are of astonishing acceptance and implementation efficiency. Simultaneously, MOVE enables an immediate cross-departmental consensus for the solution and creates a strong will for change and implementation in the team.

The power communication process is based on the latest knowledge regarding stable communication structures in nature and has already been applied very successfully in the US and Europe in numerous projects.

MOVE is a real alternative to classic moderation and conference approaches such as Open Space, World Café or RTSC-Conference. MOVE focuses consequently on creating tangible and implementable results instead of having “coffee rounds” without any results.

MOVE allows involving 12 to 42 people simultaneously and effectively in a solution creating process at projects, workshops and conferences.

Case studies

MOVE has already proven its convincing power in numerous projects. Moreover, MOVE has become an innovative moderation method for workshops, change management as well as project, management and strategy conferences.

Here you will find some typical application examples:

Strategy development for a global company

An industrial company group requires a new growth strategy for its European business. Thanks to MOVE, a 22-head team of managers and experts of the European business group identifies the strategically important core projects and works out concrete action plans within only 2,5 days. The strategic evolution and growth start successfully.

Increase in profits in industry

An industrial company in crisis is threatened by massive losses. A turnaround plan is quickly required for the current business year. With MOVE, an 18-head team of managers and experts defines an effective program for increasing profits within only 2,5 days, which is implemented immediately with high motivation. Thanks to MOVE, the company returns to the profit zone within only a few months.

Sales optimization to increase turnover and profits

A company is several millions behind its turnover and contribution margin targets. With MOVE, a work group made up of 14 experts from sales, marketing and productions works out a powerful COMEX re-diagnostics concept in only two days. The turnover and contribution margin gaps can be closed successfully in the following months.

Increase in production efficiency

A company in the packaging industry has to lower production costs in the plant due to a difficult margin situation. With MOVE, a work group of operations and sales specialists works out an action plan for the most urgent measures to increase production efficiency in only four work meetings. In the implementation phase, the production costs can be lowered significantly.

Increase of work place attractiveness

A company in the health industry requires a concept to increase work place attractiveness and employee satisfaction. With MOVE, a team of 20 members develops a comprehensive package of measures to improve the situation within 2,5 days. After only a few weeks, the spirit in the company improves noticeably and the satisfaction of the employees and working efficiency increases.

Roll-out-strategy for a new target process

A leading European outsourcing service provider has designed a new target process for the preparation and implementation of his services. The process itself has gained a broad general acceptance. However, there are different opinions how to implement the process into daily business. An interdisciplinary management team of 15 department managers works out a holistic roll-out-plan for a successful implementation with MOVE within 2,5 days.

Reorganization of group organization for marketing & sales

A large regional utility company has different business units such as energy, water and telecommunications, which all serve the same customers, but independently from each other. The 30 project team members – managers of different business units – meet for 2,5 days to develop a concept and a road-map for an integrated customer communication approach.

Think tank for a union

A union of the healthcare sector has to determine its strategic core objectives and core projects for the following years. The working group of 21 participants consists of selected board members, which are honorary active in different regions, as well as of members of the union´s head office. With MOVE, the strategically important cornerstones get defined and transferred into an action plan within just 2,5 days.
