It is being offered by Oakwood Management Consulting, an experienced team of transformation professionals who have, both individually and together, successfully delivered change programmes in many industry sectors all over the world.
The Inside Job™ is a complete support-solution to deliver successful, sustainable and self-sufficient corporate change.

Every day, your nominated staff members will be supported based on their needs and that of the project so that your change programme has the best of both worlds: the skills and expertise to deliver successful change (provided by us) and the knowledge of your company and the context of the change (provided by your staff members).
As their confidence grows, we will further enhance their knowledge and skills through accredited training programmes and development coaching.
This bespoke mentoring will be provided through to the successful and sustainable completion of your change project ensuring that you have the best outcomes possible.

First, you will not receive the benefits that you were expecting and that is bound to make an impact. Second, there will be an impact on your staff. If you have been talking about the positive benefits that the change was going to bring, but have then been unable to deliver on those, they may be left feeling that successful positive change will not come to their company. Even if the staff didn’t fully support the original change programme, its failure would cause a deep and sustained blow to corporate morale. This is likely to increase your turnover of staff (particularly the high performing staff) and cause a drop in productivity throughout.
To be successful when managing change, there needs to be both an understanding of the company (and therefore the context in which the change needs to be successful) and the skills and experience needed to implement change successfully in a variety of different contexts. This allows future issues to be anticipated before they occur, and helps keep the change programme on track when problems arise. Entering into a short-term contract with an Interim Manager may provide the skills and experience but not the understanding of the context of change. The Inside Job provides a complete support service that will complement the internal knowledge and understanding of your nominated staff member, and will upskill them to deliver self-sufficient change and transformation management.
Most training courses are theoretical, and graduates of these training programmes still need to make a lot of mistakes before they discover how to effectively apply the knowledge they have learned. In addition, most training courses are confined to just one aspect of managing a change programme i.e. project management, change management, programme management. The Inside Job is all about the practical application of knowledge and the development of skills in a variety of complimentary areas. Alongside on-the-job training and coaching, we provide a range of proven methodologies tested in a variety of different sectors globally.
