Companies around the world are implementing new systems, procedures, and organizational changes, driven by rapidly evolving business demands. These changes generally represent a significant investment.
Effectively rolling out new processes and systems does not happen by accident – it is the result of a clear, carefully planned change management process that ensures a team is well informed and prepared about both the “why” and “how” of the new ways of doing things.
Successfully rolling out new ways of doing business is mission-critical, particularly when they are changes that must happen quickly due to the realities of a new business threat or a pandemic like COVID-19. Change is often not something that can be deferred or delayed – for many businesses, it is happening now, whether they like it or not.
Given the expense of launching new processes and platforms, both in dollars and time, a good change management process ensures organizations achieve their return on investment. In fact, building change management capacity in your business is one of the wisest investments you can make in this uncertain time. An effective change management process is like insurance on expenditures made for new processes and systems. It will reduce the probability of significant loss and increase the probability of gains and returns.
Embedding effective organizational approaches to change management is not easy. The concepts are not difficult but understanding how to embed these practices into operations and work cultures is often challenging for busy organizations.
