Abstract

The objective of the initial Organizational Change Workshop, conducted on behalf of a medium-sized family-owned business, was to reduce employee health costs. During the workshop, it was soon clear that the main cause of the problems was inefficient order-processing practices. The consultants correspondently revised their change approach. Previous experience was used (evidence informed), as well as information gathered during the complete assignment (evidence based), together enabling a successful re-organizational alignment and a subsequent reduction in health expenditure.
