Change Management


Change Management

Is your team agile enough to adapt to the ever changing playing field?

To paraphrase Darwin, our very survival hinges on the ability to change.

Change Management enhances that ability to change and survive in business by anticipating and facilitating people’s response to change and reducing the resistance that hijacks change initiatives.

Why bother? Why not “just do it”?

You are probably thinking to yourself “we don’t have time for this” or “we’ve never done this before, why bother now?” Fair points, but think about this:

  • Research shows that most people resist change. This is normal and to be expected.
  • Change resistance increases when changes are imposed on people who have no choice or voice.
  • When people are valued and empowered to innovate and contribute, their change resilience increases.
  • Can you really afford to forge ahead without taking your employees with you?
  • Can lack of support from your customers, suppliers and regulators sabotage your efforts?
  • What is the price tag if you have run the seemingly right project and delivered the seemingly right solution, but no one wants, needs or supports your enterprise? Can you really afford such a gamble?

Why Change Management?

Change Management mitigates the risk of non-acceptance by building change resilience, garnering user acceptance and creating active stakeholder support for those critical business changes.
