The Change consulting Group on change strategy

DO CHANGE BETTER. FOR THE WORLD. FOR OURSELVES.

“The greatest test will be our willingness to embrace change”South African President Cyril Ramaphosa, 13 May 2020

The Change Consulting Group (CCG) is a proudly South African owned and managed company with a global client base and offices in Cape Town and Johannesburg, South Africa and a branch in Sydney, Australia. We service a client base in Africa, Europe, the United States and Asia Pacific from these locations.

Founded in 2002, we are strategy and organisational development consultants with particular expertise in managing the scale and complexity of the leadership, technical, cultural and structural change that is increasingly being introduced into large organisations by The Fourth Industrial Revolution.

We are of the view that the COVID pandemic is the greatest global change event of our lifetimes and will have profound socio-economic, political and organisational ramifications for years to come.  COVID provides both opportunity and challenges for organisations and CCG is acutely aware of the immediate and changing consulting requirements of our existing and new clients.

Our practical approach during this difficult period is to balance a short term focus on saving lives and managing cashflow, with a longer term review of strategy and operating models that focuses on innovation, re-invention, and growth, as appropriate.

Initially I brought CCG in to assist me with a mentorship programme that would target future leaders in our organisation and define our succession strategy for the marketing department.  This proved so successful that further programmes were formulated to extend other departments in the company. Not only is CCG visionary in their approach, they also made the experience fun.  Highly recommended."
