Enhance the methods in which a company implements change within both its internal and external processes
We will implement the concepts of change management and train all employees how to accept, embrace, and sustain change. Our process of aligning an organization’s people and culture with changes in systems, strategies and structures has proven results in multiple organizations globally.
Change management is a critical part of any initiative that leads and enables people to accept new processes, technologies, and values. Our set of activities helps people transition from their present way of working to the desired way of working.
- Change management is the process of aligning your people and culture with changes in your business strategy and organizational structure. It helps prepare our key stakeholders to accept, embrace, and adopt the changes.
- Change management is the effective management of a business change such that executive leaders, managers and employees work together to successfully implement the needed process, technology, or organizational improvements.
The Stakeholder Analysis tool is used to plan the required change management activities for any initiative.
As part of every transactional, transitional, and transformational initiative, stakeholders will go through many key changes. The goal of our Stakeholder Analysis tool is to identify all stakeholder and associated processes so that we can ensure they are supported. The degree to which we enable stakeholders to effectively move through each transitional phase will determine the overall effectiveness and success of the change.
Once populated, this tool will be used as a key input into planning change management activities such as Communications and Training Development, which aim to minimize disruption and maximize organizational benefits. Change initiatives are frequently adapting to organization needs which means that the stakeholder scope can expand and contract. The Stakeholder Analysis plan is a living document that is continually updated and revisited throughout the life of the change project.
The first step is identifying all stakeholders that the initiative will directly or indirectly impact.
The second step is to identify each change that the stakeholders will be experiencing. Focus on what Employees are starting, stopping, and doing differently throughout and after a change occurs.
Equipping and developing the Communication Plan also outlines ways to facilitate communication between project stakeholder groups to meet theses specific objectives:
- Establish effective communications to assure the timely completion of a quality project that adds value and supports the organization’s business objectives.
- Facilitate consistent delivery of information to project stakeholders to reduce the risk of misunderstanding, rumors, or surprises .
- Build awareness, acceptance, commitment, and ownership in the project.
- Foster a feeling of teamwork among project stakeholders.
The goals of any communication plan should be as follows:
- Communication must be timely, relevant, and accurate.
- Messages must be consistent, regardless of the sender.
- Communication must increase awareness and understanding of the project.
- Communication must be two way; feedback must be encouraged and acted upon.
