To be successful, any organisational change must first be fully defined and understood. To do this we use the Elements of Change methodology.
This clarity helps to engage the stakeholders necessary to make the change, and ensure that expectations are fully aligned.
We can guide your organisation through the change management process using the following steps.
A problem/opportunity or dissatisfaction – is there a problem that you are trying to solve or an opportunity? Or, are people dissatisfied with the current situation?
The vision or story (the why) – what does the future look like and do people agree with that future? This includes goals, objectives – we are here (current) and want to get to their (future).
A well thought about process to implement – explaining clearly to people how the change will be implemented. This is change management methodologies like ADKAR are used.
