- Organizations underestimate the importance of the people side of change. Often, the people element is addressed at the last minute – an ineffective and inauthentic approach.
- Many people perceive change management as a complicated, overwhelming process.
- Change may be complex, but change management doesn’t have to be. Simplify complex change by breaking it down into manageable milestones.
- People are always looking for what is new in change management. However, existing models are not broken – the problem lies in the execution and a lack of focus on the people impact.
- Tying change metrics to performance metrics for managers and leaders is an effective way to ensure that someone has accountability for sustaining the change post-implementation.
Impact and Result
- While change can be complicated, change management does not have to be. Break change into digestible components to make it manageable.
- Take the time upfront to be planful about change. Assess readiness and stakeholders to create a customized, relevant, and detailed action plan to effectively address change.
- Develop change resiliency in employees to increase their ability to adapt to change.
