We were a new senior leadership team that inherited an old staff complement. We had a new mandate and a group of people who were used to doing things a certain way. It was time for a change, but where to start? We contacted Anthro and they immediately had someone on it. First, they really made an effort to understand our unique situation, who the stakeholders were, and what problems we were trying to address. Once they had a good lay of the land, they worked with us to create a series of interventions which both re-energized our staff and got them to look at their work differently. It was incredibly useful not just because of its impact on our workforce, but also because it helped us translate our mandate into something our staff, from top to bottom, could understand. Now for the first time in a long time, everyone is pulling in the same direction.
Our bureaucracy had started to run away from us. So many forms, so many approvals, so much redundancy. We needed someone from the outside to cast a critical eye over our business processes and determine if what we were doing was actually necessary. It felt like, from the inside, we couldn’t see the forest from the trees anymore. We called Anthro and they really made an effort to understand what was going on before recommending changes. After all, you can’t just change things in an organization like ours. First, they carefully mapped out our most troublesome processes. Then we worked together to find more efficient ways of doing things. They were always careful to suggest changes that didn’t require new technology unless it was something that we already had. In the end, we managed to cut down the time it took us to complete certain processes by half. It was definitely worth the investment working with Anthro. They really get working in the international public sector.
