Having the Energy to Change Organizational Culture


One of OrgMapper’s client, a European energy company – with more than 43,000 employees based in offices around the world – faced critical challenges of the highly regulated market, and also managing the impact of digitalization on the day to day operations.

In order to keep up with the pace, they acknowledged that traditional change models had not so far had the required impact, and had also not been demonstrating the results quickly enough. They researched available solutions and providers, focusing on tools that could support organizational change.

In this case study, we share with you the complete project – including the detailed problem the client faced with, the business advantage of network science Team OrgMapper provided, and the impact of Influencer identification on the environment.


Two years ago Values in Action was about shaping the culture of the Health Service Executive (HSE) Ireland. The new approach aims to build the desired health service – from the inside out – making the health service a better place for staff, patients and service users. In order to achieve their goal, HSE partnered with The Chalfont Project, developers of the Viral Change™ methodology, to create large-scale behavioural and cultural change. The Chalfont Project and Maven 7 are strategic partners. Maven7 – OrgMapper provided Organizational Network Analysis solution in order to carry out a social network analysis on a target population of over 4,000 people, as part of Values in Action.

In this case study, you will find detailed information about the background of HSE, their pain points and the solution The Chalfont Project and Maven7- OrgMapper provided. Further, we share best practices with you concerning Influencers in action.
