Why and Where Do Organisational Changes Occur

Organisational Changes 1

Organisational Changes Are Inevitable

Organisational changes occur in companies of all sizes. They happen, particularly in the case of smaller and middle-sized companies. People learn to adapt to these new circumstances and work with them.

But what if you planned these changes? Wouldn´t that be better for all concerned? In the case of larger organisations, this is often the case. A planned set of changes can pay dividends.

A professional and experienced change manager could make your company a great deal more successful in various ways.

Who Are Responsible for Organisational Changes

Changes in an organisation have an impact on people. Employees are the ones that can make this change either a success or a failure.

Several people at different levels within a company are involved. At the top, it is the CEO and the board members.

Below this, there are division or line managers, sponsors, project managers, communication specialists, trainees, and other employees.

They all have different roles within the system. Either way, internal or external change managers can help any changes introduced run smoothly.

The Role of Change Managers

The most important thing is that change sponsors and appointed change managers create a situation in the entire organisation where there is awareness of change.

Their role is to describe and explain the change and why it needs to be made, and why it has to be done now. Part of this explanation will involve letting everyone know what will happen if the change is not made.

In that way, employees will see the change in a more positive light. When you create awareness of all this, you will start to create desire throughout the company.

Desire is a powerful tool for bringing about change. Let individuals or groups within the company or organisation know what personal benefits are in the change. Then they will work for the change instead of resisting it.

Time and Tools

You will need to involve a sponsor of the project and project and line managers who can support and coordinate the work with a change manager.

A professional and experienced change manager can increase the chance of success six times over. To achieve this, they must be involved as early as possible in the project.

Coaching and communication are important tools to implement changes. There are several coaching levels: Life coaching, Group Coaching, and Executive Coaching.

Change is one of the constants of life. Do you know how to increase the success of your project?

The starting point is defining your change strategy, preparing your team for a change, and developing your sponsor model. Then you must develop your action plan for change and implement it, bringing the changes to life.

After that, it is a case of reinforcing change, collecting and analysing feedback, finding gaps in the plan or resistance to it, and implementing any corrections.
