Step 2

ASSESSMENT

We start by doing a complementary assessment of your organization’s current likelihood of success of your strategic goals

Strategy execution is hard. Every organization has different needs and maturity levels when it comes to executing strategy. To ensure that you and your organization receive a customized and personal onboarding, we typically start with a 30-minute Assessment where we help you to map out strategic focus areas and your financial potential. During the Assessment, you answer our evidence-based survey with questions about your organization. The report that’s generated is the first step in getting your strategy actionable.

Our strategy experts are here to help you take the first step.

BREAKING DOWN YOUR STRATEGY INTO AN ACTIONABLE BUSINESS PLAN

We know that our onboarding process works. We see the change happen in teams and organizations. It’s right there, in Howwe: Teams accelerating towards their goals, sharing best practices, focusing on what’s important.

Together with the CEO and management, we start by creating a business case and by interviewing key persons in the management team. As a next step, we conduct workshops with all teams in cascading order, and thereby support each team in setting measurable and prioritized goals and connected activities. Along the way, we support leaders in your organization with our Leader Forums – recurring group meetings to discuss progress, what challenges may have arisen, and to learn from each other.

Together with the CEO and management, we support you in setting measurable and prioritized goals and connected activities. This is done in a structured process and cascaded all the way through the organization.

Step 4

ANCHORING YOUR GOALS

The ‘Why’ is often just as important, or even more important, than the ‘How’. That is why we at Howwe Technologies help you get your message out to the entire organization in an engaging and efficient way.

Within the first few weeks of onboarding, we film short videos with the CEO, head of HR, or other key persons and produce inspiring videos that are distributed via a company direction page inside Howwe. Reach everyone with your message, and make sure everyone understands what your top priorities are and why they are important!

Here’s why Orbit One chose Howwe.

Step 5

TECHNICAL KNOW-HOW 

The CEO and all leaders in the organization are key to making the Howwe way of working a success in the organization. That’s why it is crucial that they master the software. Our onboarding process includes a technical crash course if needed (most users find the software intuitive enough not to need this), and further video tutorials and step-by-step guides are always just a click away.

TEAMS GO LIVE

As soon as goals and activities are set, teams go live in the application. What this means is that from then on, they will conduct weekly Acceleration Meetings and report their achievements in Howwe.  With a dedicated customer success team, going live is a breeze. We continue to support the leaders in your organization with coaching during the first months, to ensure that every single employee in your organisation becomes an expert at executing your most important goals.

AND REPEAT…

After just a few weeks, the entire organization is onboarded to the platform and the way of working. From then on, what remains is to maintain the relentlessness in the execution. Setting aside a few minutes every week for Accelerations Meetings and to report achievements is basically all it takes.
