There is one thing that you can bank upon in business: change is inevitable!
Not only will change happen, but change is also happening at a faster pace than ever before. Change will happen in one way or another, so businesses need to be proactive by preparing for it. Advances in technology, changing demographics and customer trends, updated regulations and global crises, all require a change management strategy to optimise performance.
A change management strategy can be defined as the way a business will approach and apply knowledge, resources and tools to address change in and around it.
The primary purpose of change management is to effectively implement new processes, products and business strategies to adjust to change, while minimising any negative outcomes. It is essential for businesses wanting to be competitive, grow and evolve, that they implement an effective change management strategy.
So what’s included in an effective change management strategy?
Following are some basic questions every change management strategy should cover:
This list is a good place to start but is by no means exhaustive. There are many factors to consider as you implement change to ensure successful and sustainable adoption.
The development of a change management strategy is a good first step to combat change resistance. Understanding who, what, when and most importantly why, can help those impacted by change better understand the context for change, the change itself and what’s in it for them.
This leads to a higher probability your changes will be adopted in the short term, and the change will stick over time.
