About Us

Innovatie

If people within your organisation don't follow through on their own change adoption, the company as a whole will not integrate the changes the management has laid out for them. New structures or processes will ricochet. Making the personal transitions of your people measurable and managable, will aid the company in its transformation. 

Change

Innovation is a means of creating value and staying relevant for your customers in today's non-stop changing world. There is no one right way of excercising innovation but it requires of different way of think for a new age of digitization, evolving technology, intangible global processes and volatile but complex interactions. 

Business Legends identifies three key elements in chaging and innovating your organisation

Emotional Change

The deepest layer of resistance is often hard to share with colleagues or managers. Its manifests as an insible wall, not being able to point to why a change won't be accepted in your organisation. Our Change Coaches offer an independent, objective and unbiased antenna that leads to a better grip on change and innovation.

Cognitive Change

People or teams in your organisations have valid reasons for not wanting to implement a change. And the arguments never seem to stop. Cognitive resistance should be listened to so that reasons can be opened up for new strategies to change.

Behavioural Change

Identifying Change Parameters, tracking them, extracting meaning, creating a sense of urgency and ownership for them and iteratively change behavior: that's what our Coaches thrive on! We pave the way for your organisation's succes.

Orientation

As an organisation it’s important to know where you stand in the field of innovation and change. You must define why you want to innovate, in what way, how, via what structures and with what people or partners. A myriad of questions need answering and Business Legends help you with that. Depending on your situation we can offer an IQ (Innovation Quality) or CQ (Change Quality) scan. After that, we help your organisation with creating scenarios, defining targets, your unique value creation goals, plotting your direction and developing your own unique vision and approach on innovation.
