Organizational Change Management

We believe the number one cause of failed business initiatives is poor (or no) change management planning and execution. Regardless of the nature of the effort (merger integration, ERP installation, preparation for new regulation), the key to successful completion requires deliberate planning execution of organizational change management to optimize the effort and mitigate risk.

We believe in a relentless, pragmatic, action-oriented approach that includes:

  • Executive sponsorship from the start to completion, including significant
    executive involvement.
  • Communication planning and execution – leveraging various mediums.
  • Organization job / role impact planning and design.
  • Readiness planning and tracking.
  • Training planning, execution and measurement.
  • Rigorous project management of change management team.

Our Organization Change Management experts focus on the following key functions:

Change Readiness

Our Change Management consultants will work with you to plan for the impacted personnel during a major change (e.g., merger integration, system integration, major process change, etc) and implement change management tools and techniques.

Our team will assess overall change resistance due to:

  • Too many initiatives happening simultaneously.
  • Inaccurate rumors about the change.
  • Lack of employee/user buy-in (e.g., “there is no need for the change”).
