ADVICE AND COACHING
Personal guidance on leadership and change
F-action focuses on the organizational changes associated with the application of new technologies; more flexibility and self-organization, cooperation in the value chain and internationalization.
For complex projects with a strong multidisciplinary character and cross-departmental interests, an external project manager is often called upon. Project management through F-action offers added value if the organizational component, both internally and externally, is of crucial importance to the project success.
Organizations that want to increase the chance of success of projects benefit from professional support for the development of this competence. Together with F-action the customer determines which role projects play in the strategy and how projects can be designed. Then it is hands-on to work with the people who give content and guidance to projects.
In order to allow a new way of working to last, it makes sense to organize a steering role close to the execution of projects. This can be as project manager of a large project or as interim head of a project department. F-action has experience in leading teams with an emphasis on the competence development of people.
F-action offers training programs for project and program management that are tailor-made for the specific situation within an organization. Because the return on the learning effort is paramount, not only project managers are trained, but also clients, users and team members. If possible, the training courses take place in a project so that the lessons learned can be put into practice immediately.
ADVICE AND COACHING
F-action is passionate about projects and programs. Customers with complex issues related to this theme are welcome for an informal conversation. Our starting point is always; The more a customer can do, the better. Nevertheless, there may be a temporary need for guidance on specific themes. With our knowledge and network, we are happy to help you on your way.
You change easier from motion than from standstill
The founder of F-action, André Haverkort, has played a stimulating and organizing role in projects, programs and personal development trajectories in various roles over the last 20 years. His style is characterized by decisiveness, craftsmanship and contagious enthusiasm. André has a business background and focuses mainly on the business environment where innovation, product development and the use of technology characterize the playing field.
ORIENTATION ON COMPETENCE
Change has become a constant factor for many organizations. Temporary and long-lasting partnerships are created to respond to changing market or other environmental conditions. This places high demands on the flexibility of individuals but also on the systems and the way of organizing. F-action helps organizations and individuals develop these competences.
How do you create an organization that is outwardly oriented and can convert knowledge and creativity into applicable innovations and sustainable changes? According to F-action, the answer to this is different for each organization, but there are some basic principles that increase the chances of success. The key concepts are phonetically returned in the name F-action.
- Focus changes on the desired Effect that needs to be achieved.
- Organize the change so that people quickly get into Action and benefit from the results.
- Create an atmosphere of Affection so that people who use the change can trust not to be accounted for on their mistakes but appreciated on what they do achieve.
