Change management

At Forvis Mazars, we believe in creating lasting success through strong leadership that can guide a business through times of change.

In an era of accelerating change where companies face constant disruption, change leadership is essential to ensure your organisation stays ahead of the pack. By having a robust change leadership strategy in place, organisations can adapt to new technologies, new business models, and industry change.


Our approach

When businesses go through major change or transformation, earning buy-in from employees is crucial. The greatest success comes when you place your people at the centre of everything you do. To ensure a successful transition for your employees, we create a vision they can understand and embrace. Our goal is to paint a clear picture of the changes they can expect and lead them through those future uncertainties. Successful change happens when people are transparent about the reason for change and committed to the outcome. 

We believe in a work style that is proactive and collaborative. Our professionals' leverage years of deep cross-industry knowledge and consulting experience, equipping you and your team with the professional strategies, techniques, methods and tools required to effectively lead your organisation through change.

Our involvement can span from working with the board on an initial strategic change readiness assessment to creating and implementing a communications plan with organisational leaders. We differentiate ourselves by delivering practical change that our clients experience. We can also help build KPIs and other metrics to provide high-level feedback on progress.

At Forvis Mazars, our ambition is to help clients deliver lasting change. As a global organisation, we are able to solve our client’s change challenges in a holistic manner, leveraging our international depth and reach while also offering local market knowledge. Beyond the cultural aspect of change, we also have the expertise to communicate directly with the operational areas of your business, whether that's legal, audit or IT departments. This ensures we achieve complete buy-in from those experiencing and actioning the change.


Our services:

  • Change readiness assessments and stakeholder engagement.
  • Change management planning, design and development.
  • Communication strategy, planning and execution.
  • Digital tools for management of complex consultations.

Our tools and solutions

Our approach to change management, while rooted in current academic research, is also founded upon practical change techniques and tools that help drive sustainable change. We also conduct leading-edge research such as Board Leadership of Corporate Culture in Europe in association with Board Agenda and INSEAD, which highlights the mismatch between words and actions at board level on cultural change.
