Evolve: The Art of Implementation®

Evolve helps leading energy and chemical companies deliver significant value in capital, production, cost, risk and growth, that continues to improve long term. We believe that consulting interventions should put clients on a different trajectory: a changed belief in what’s possible, with the capability and culture for ongoing improvement and agile response to new challenges. Operating with a growth mindset, Evolve believes that organizations are powered by their people and that they can achieve better, faster results. 

Evolve is built on the idea that sustainable change requires building new capability. If your people are going to truly learn, the answers have to be realized by them, which requires an approach that builds your organizational capability and ownership, something that can only be achieved if your people build skills through their own experience and your leaders own and drive the change themselves.  

Our clients are typically trying to implement change themselves, as they recognize that sustainable change requires building new skills and practicing new behaviors. They value external perspective but have seen mixed results with consultants. The challenge with doing this completely on your own is that you lack external perspective and because complex change is difficult, it requires specialist skills. To address concerns about the lack of engagement, ownership and sustainability that often comes with external support, Evolve helps you use the challenges you have today as the practice field to build your organization’s engagement and skills for implementation. 

Evolve’s proven methodology helps organizations design and implement their own successful change programs and our consultants are passionate about supporting your people through this process as they thrive, learn and grow. Evolve helps you build your program based on experience, insight and best practice in the energy and chemicals industry. Typical implementation programs supported by Evolve include business and cultural transformation, operational excellence, asset reliability, continuous improvement, capital project execution, turnaround excellence and organizational effectiveness. 

We are purposely built to help you address the typical implementation challenges of urgency, ownership, leadership, skills and culture. Achieving this requires an integrated approach across processes, systems, leadership and change.

Working with Evolve is a strategic choice to put your organization on a different trajectory: 

  • Results that continue and grow into the future

  • Systems and processes that continue to evolve and develop

  • Capabilities, behaviors, and culture to meet new challenges

  • Changed beliefs about what is possible

  • Motivation and confidence to continue the improvements
