The ability to change is a critical competency for successful organizations. Many things that can influence and trigger change initiatives include: downsizing, corporate growth, acquisitions, mergers, a change in senior executives, need for innovation, implementation of project management and quality improvement initiatives. Organizational change can usher in a host of unwelcome and unavoidable side effects and result in the need for the organization to improve productivity, increase morale or re-define the culture.
Change initiatives require careful implementation. It will be apparent when strategic change is effective because it will be evident that all levels of staff have incorporated the change in everything they do. To get there requires that staff understand the changes necessary and commit to implementing them.
Business Improvement Architects will take you through a process that includes the identification of behaviours necessary for change to occur, the process of managing the change journey and the measurement of staff against the behaviours they will need to demonstrate that will demonstrate the extent to which they have embraced the strategic change.
