When companies embark upon a major change initiative, there is typically a short timeframe and numerous variables that need to be considered and managed effectively. Change leaders need to formulate a plan for how to seamlessly drive this change through their organizations, secure buy-in, and eliminate surprises to accelerate adoption. Change initiatives could include a shift in strategy, digital transformation, systems implementation, a joint venture, acquisition, strategic partnership, or division closure or reductions in workforce. In many instances, these types of changes are often communicated and implemented on fairly short notice with limited support offered. In contrast, effective change management requires a more holistic and integrated view.
For organizations to succeed, leadership and change managers should support people throughout the organization through their transitions from current state to future state. This requires a deeper understanding of certain key drivers needed to influence each person to embrace and adopt the change. When implemented in alignment with strategic goals and a human-centric approach, companies can significantly increase the likelihood of achieving and sustaining project success.
