Transformational Management Expertise
A major global pharmaceutical organization engaged Pinnacle to drive the change management aspects of an ERP system implementation. Pinnacle increased user commitment and leadership and helped the company overcome cross-cultural and commitment challenges for users in nine different countries.
Change is a constant in modern life. Technology is continuously changing; so are ideas and attitudes, and the relationships between people and organizations. In business, the behaviors and practices that were good enough to make a company successful a few years ago just don’t measure up to current needs. An organization needs to change to prosper.
But… most attempts by organizations to undertake significant change do not reach their goal—from 50% to 70% do not reach their goals, despite all the planning and investment.
Pinnacle services employ proven approaches at all levels of employee engagement and positions of authority. Time-tested methodologies and tools applied throughout the change lifecycle ensure success and address key elements such as:
- Create an appropriate cadence of targeted communications
- Proactively manage sources of resistance and build consensus
- Address cross-cultural considerations and create a shared change vision
- Coordinate efforts among teams and ensure congruence of messages and behaviors
- Support the flow of information employees need to make smart decisions
- Help preserve and transfer the learning gained from the change effort
A progressive financial services firm hired Pinnacle to assess the impact of process changes resulting from facility consolidations. New processes, roles & responsibilities and training programs were developed and implemented in conjunction with reengineering efforts across several SBUs and locations.

Integration of a series of acquisitions by a consumer goods conglomerate, lead to concerns over how to best manage an evolving, multi-disciplinary workforce. New mobile work policies and cultural changes were also being implemented. Pinnacle designed programs to gather and measure the impact of the changes and the level of staff engagement. We facilitated workshops, town halls and other tactics to materially increase knowledge transfer and employee commitment.
