With expertise spanning the human capital value chain, we deliver integrated solutions that enable the alignment and engagement of people with organisational strategy.
We recognise that changing behaviour – embedding new people practices and ways of working – is key to any solution developed. Our human capital services include:
MAC has more than 25 years’ experience in working with organisational transformations and supporting leaders at all levels to lead transitions and navigate change. MAC’s key ability is to integrate appropriate change initiatives and architecture into the fabric of their project design and beyond.
Building change leadership capability to better navigate change in a shifting environment is an essential factor in the success and sustainability of projects. Influenced by some of the great thinkers in the change arena, and incorporating exciting advances made in neuroscience, MAC’s systemic approach offers a practical and measurable approach to navigating change during organisational transitions.
Our work in this space has enabled us to develop many tried-and-tested tools and methodologies, and an appreciation that there is no ‘one size fits all’ for successful organisational change. MAC’s philosophy is that navigating change is not the role of a select group of specialists, but a core skill that can be developed and nurtured in leaders at all levels across the organisation.
Human Resource Management
Our approach to human resources (HR) is pragmatic in that we design solutions that meet ‘best practice’ design criteria and, at the same time, account for a client’s specific environment and needs. This involves aligning corporate strategy with business results in each area of the HR value chain, as well as within the Organisation and Human Capital Performance Framework.
Recent assignments have focused on human resources strategy, performance management, rewards management, job design and employee development, specifically at supervisory and management level.
At MAC we have experienced consultants who coach clients and colleagues on methodologies, provide practical guidance on technical issues, deliver facilitated design, and provide quality assurance on deliverables. We are competent in the application of popular models in HR design.
A critical assumption shaping our transformation work is that, ultimately, culture drives strategy and that culture is demonstrated through a consistent pattern of behaviours in an organisation. Working systemically and understanding the link between shaping culture and sustainably transforming organisations is key.
Our systemic transformation framework highlights our approach and broad range of capabilities to support the transformation and implementation of new strategies.
Fundamental to our approach is the ability to work across the system and not only on one of the elements. Developing elements in isolation, without aligning the other levers, often leads to unintended results, or transformation not being achieved.
