Architecting a change management program is not easy and there are no silver bullets. It needs to be thought of early, managed often and is essential to any business initiative that involves people.
Effective change management begins with a wide-angle view of the people and processes upcoming changes will affect. Change has a ripple effect that spreads outward and touches multiple teams across the organization. Getting to those people before the change hits is vital if you hope to see the change implemented with minimal friction. Proving the success after the change hits them aligns leaders, builds momentum and increases the desire to learn and do things the new way.
Getting buy-in from business units and functional leaders up and down the line is key to introducing change that’s going to be supported, reinforced, and applied. Failing to do so is simply failing.
We help companies focus on fewer initiatives with a change management program embedded to achieve a sustainable difference.
