Change Management


REwords.png

Change isn't always embraced; in fact, most of the time it's actively fought. Without the right capacity to manage and lead change in an organization, businesses face even worse fates if a transition is bungled and a mutiny seethes. Besides the direct impact on business results, there is an erosion in trust in leadership, lowered morale, and dips in productivity. The failure of one project weakens your ability to deal with future challenges and each one compounds the next.

A practical application of change management tools can help you power up internal processes and talent. As a result, you can adapt to the shifting landscape of business and better capitalize on new opportunities. Here are three factors we have seen change management directly and positively impact:


DISRUPTION:  Remember how a meteor wiped an entire species from the face of the earth without so much as a warning? Yeah, that's happening in the business world right now — and your only means of protection is is to manage the change before it manages you.

Leaders need to take an honest appraisal of what it will take to future-proof their business because for all you know, that next meteor is a lot closer than you think. Mammals, after all, survived and thrived once they learned to adapt, and the same tactic can be deployed by businesses to change the way they work, lead, communicate and engage, and to ultimately produce the type of resilience and results they desire.
 

As the meteor was to the dinosaur, what disruption is looming over the horizon that could drive your business into extinction? Change management skills can help you adapt and thrive in a volatile and uncertain climate.

Fear of the unknown is one part of the emotional journey individuals need to confront during change. Leaders need to consider such impacts and help equip their teams to compensate.

FEAR: There was a time in the corporate world when people could duck and hide when a new process or technology was rolled out. The ‘this too shall pass’ mindset, while unproductive, was a known response, and leaders knew how to deal with the challenge. Conversely, change in today’s business climate has all the intrigue, politics, and ruthlessness of a Game of Thrones episode. Hostility, fear, and in some cases, outright sabotage are part of daily life on a project. Organizations need change management skills now more than ever to help identify resistance and provide holistic solutions that engender confidence, trust and buy-in.


BENEFITS: Have you ever heard the saying "it takes money to make money?" If that's true with your project, you definitely don't want that vital investment to go to waste. So, if you're spending a ton on new technology or on a restructuring, why wouldn't you eliminate avoidable costs and mitigatable risks by leveraging change management? With a focus on the people side of the change, you create benefit realization insurance by eliminating retraining, rescoping, and rework.

Why allow rework, retraining, reboots, redesigns, relaunches, resistance, and regret in your projects? Change management can help minimize risks and help you focus on ROI and results.
