Change management – it’s important for everyone
Change happens faster than ever before, and we are all expected to keep up. In today’s business world, being able to adapt to change is a quality any successful company needs. The increase in regulation, rapid advancements of technology and the most diverse workforce in the history the United States is causing massive change at an increased pace. As a result, to be successful you must be versatile. For this reason, change management is an important concept to understand and implement in your organization, among your team, as well as embrace individually.
Change management is the discipline that guides how we prepare and support individuals to successfully navigate change in order to achieve your desired results. With proper change management, colleagues understand why the change is happening, how it will impact them personally and what are the benefits for them when the change is implemented. The greatest importance of change management is that it provides strategies and proven techniques to ensure a return on the investment of making the change in the first place. Remember, companies do not change overnight; their employees change one at a time. Further, if employees are more open to change, they will be more engaged in the process of making it happen. When employees are more engaged, the transition can happen more quickly and efficiently.
Applying change management as well as project management is critical to leading change effectively. It is important to apply both. Far too often, I see organizations focus on the project management details, and completely ignore change management - the people side of change.
