Our team works with you in three complementary major service areas. Read all about them below.
Praxis Northwest, LLC brings a uniquely powerful solution to help organizations adjust to changing technology, market demands, government regulation, or resource constraints. We do this by helping our clients make and fulfill the promises necessary for their success.
Using our promised-based approach to organizational change, we help our clients integrate the roles of motivation, coordination, learning and collaboration to successfully meet challenges in:
As climate change, soaring energy costs, water resource concerns, carbon emission management and other environmental issues become critical components of corporate and government strategy, increasing numbers of organizations are launching sustainability initiatives to address them. Recent studies point to the importance of taking an integrated systems-based approach for these initiatives to be successful. A sustainability program crosses departmental and functional boundaries, requiring new levels of coordination and collaboration inside the organization, as well as with external customers and suppliers.
To meet these challenges, we use frameworks like The Natural Step and Environmental Management Systems to help an organization define its sustainability goals and targets and to establish the desired projects. We then link these goals and projects to individual and organizational commitments, using our proven method of promise-based management. This provides a comprehensive, organization-wide sustainability strategy that produces measurable results, is responsive and flexible in the face of a changing business and regulatory environment, endures over time, and improves morale and productivity.
Process Design and Improvement
Organizations are successful to the extent that they are able to fulfill promises to their customers, suppliers, stakeholders, and among their staff. Yet many process improvement projects focus only on how information or products move within and among organizations. How people work together, and why they need information and goods, is overlooked.
By helping organizations and teams consider the people-making-promises dimension of their work together, we provide our clients with tools and a common language for transforming their working relationships (both within the organization and with external partners), their information flows, and ultimately the quality and value of their products and services. This approach also bolsters the vital trust among managers and staff required to produce outstanding value for customers.
Praxis Northwest designs a customized solution for each client — because each has a unique set of concerns and challenges.
In more than 18 years helping our clients succeed, Praxis Northwest consultants have worked side by side with executives, managers and staff at all levels in the Pacific Northwest and worldwide, to produce positive organizational change.
