The world today is very different. Major change happens moment to moment— economically, environmentally, sociologically, politically, and organizationally. Given all this, we need to re-wire ourselves to be more comfortable with and open to change. We need to become more change-capable.
All changes, big or small, benefit from well-thought-out change management. It’s estimated that as many as 70 percent of change projects fail due to a lack of proper support and guidance. This is why change management companies have become a necessity for organizations of all sizes. Effective change management involves three broad phases: preparing for change, implementing and managing a change plan, and reinforcing the desired change by gathering and analyzing feedback, identifying gaps and managing issues, and adjusting changes as needed.
Keeping track of all the stages of change while implementing or tracking its efficiency is no cakewalk. Proactively, organizations have started subscribing to change management software to help them transition smoothly and thrive. These change management tools can be deployed to help reduce confusion and uncertainty, as well as aid in communicating the impact of changes throughout the organization. Ideally, it should be a blend of change management software, templates, training, and resources, as well as a core team dedicated to this end.
The change management process is all about how you get from Point A (the existing state) to Point B (your desired change). But to implement that change successfully, especially in the current climate where the stakes are high, the right confluence of tools and resources makes a world of difference.
