You’ve got a major change that has to be done in an accelerated fashion. Leaders are saying, “this better be a success, or else.” People feel disconnected and disenchanted with major change initiatives that seem like just another fad:
Transformational Initiatives - Engage your whole system as you bring together diverse stakeholders to design a solution and co-innovate their future.
Roadmapping - Create a clear visual tool that helps all stakeholders see how and where they proactively engage and collaborate over the course of your initiative’s life cycle.
Project Implementation - Leverage the best of both project management and change management practice to implement your programs efficiently and effectively. Synergize your people by leveraging their talents.
→ Disrupt the status quo. Whether you are implementing a 1-3 month change project or a large scale 1-3 year initiative, transforming organizations and revitalizing communities does not have to be complicated. Empower the people and stakeholder groups vested in your success with proven tools and customized solutions guided by the change formula [DVFS>R] to streamline your strategic planning and implementation.
Are your meetings full of lengthy reports followed by random questions and postponed decisions? Are your people frustrated that their time isn’t used wisely?
Meeting Facilitation - Flip mundane report-filled meetings into engaging work-sessions where people solve problems, innovate solutions, and move to action more efficiently.
Conference Design & Delivery - Create meaningful engagements they’ll remember. Inspire attendees through engagement approaches from Open Space and World Café to Collaborative Arts.
Training & Workshop Design - Take your training programs and translate them into active experiences with enduring learning that energizes your participants through sound curriculums.
Whole-System Events - Bring your whole organization or community into the room to create a desire for change, an inspiring vision, action plans, and the supports to ensure follow-through.
→ Bring any size group into a room and have them leave 3 hours or 3 days later, owning the co-created outcomes. Get the best use of your and their time when you are together in-person – to do the work that matters. Accelerate change and enable space for creativity and emergence of the wisdom in the room through collaborative arts. Invigorate your conference, meeting, or event in a way that meaningfully engages your collaborators without pricey gimmicks.

Virtual Change Management
Leverage Technology to Do More over Space and Time
Your team is dispersed and it’s hard to consistently meet face-to-face and project managements spreadsheets give you a headache:
Virtual and hybrid [online+onsite] meetings and large group engagements - Leverage video conferencing, digital breakout rooms, and virtual collaboration platforms to enable effective meetings even when half the team is joining virtually. Connect rooms full of people across the country and conduct productive work sessions with co-owned outcomes.
Customized project and program management that fits YOUR workflow - Maximize the effectiveness of dispersed or co-located teams with the the right combination of tools from Asana, Trello, and Monday, to G-Suite add-ons and calendar integration - without the need for costly one-off software solutions for your organization.
→ With digital collaborative technologies, do the work that matters when you are together in-person or online. Maximize cost- and time-efficiency with virtual collaboration tools and methodologies. We support any event, project, or initiative with the best of virtual program management and project implementation practices. Save time on travel, updates, and project management meetings by connecting dispersed people and teams virtually.
These services are used throughout the core service offerings explored above:

Blended Arts Solutions and customized Arts Design and Facilitation.

Leverage the methods, models, tools, activities, and most importantly the people that represent our community of knowledge - the Collaborative Change Library - for your organization.
NEXUS4change services do not seek to give you ‘our answer’ to your issues, but rather build your capacities to achieving the mutually desired outcomes of the people in your organization through purposeful sharing, learning, and creating their desired future together.
