Foquz on change

Foquz supports companies with their change processes. We provide an analysis of your opportunities and capabilities for change, together with insight in threats and (personal) resistance. Based on this analysis and client feedback a change strategy is proposed. The planning, execution and evaluation of a change program (such as a reorganisation) can be part of our service.

During the analysis all aspects regarding the change are examined and taken care of. The figure below illustrates the 'levels of change' which can be addressed in your situation and from which an approach per level/mix of levels is customised. Foquz supports change from the behaviour level up to and including the customer level.

My name is Dick Tiemessen, founder of Foquz. After my study Industrial Design Engineering at the Delft University of Technology, I worked at KPN in various roles in project-, change- & innovation management for 12 years.
In this period I found out that the (insight in the demands of the) customers and the (resistance to change & the ambition of) employees are critical success factors in change and innovation.

My approach to change is customer and employee oriented; making full use of the most essential driving forces in sustainable change & innovation!

My experiences in the Telecom and IT sector brought me an interim management position in the Civil Engineering sector. At this moment I'm managing the project portfolio and facilitating the restart of a small international organisation.

'We from Foquz' refers to a strong believe in teamwork. Depending on the needs of the customer and the situation at hand, other experts will join the Foquz team.
