Change is something that happens constantly. In organizations and companies, change happens at an abstract level. Within a company, change is often a necessity. It is due to internal or external circumstances. It could be thrust upon you or the conscious decision comes from you to change.
There are a diverse number of drivers building the need to change including the current environment that’s changing. It could be driven by governments making new laws that require change in business operation, regulation changes within your industry or driven by economic change. Shareholders could demand increased returns on investment, employees, management and bosses needing change in how processes are currently executed.
It has become clear for organizational success that there are many roles that are executed to manage change. These roles are spanning the whole hierarchy of an organization, from its executives and top management to the workers.
Change management’s essence is to create strategies that enable people to:
- Adopt to change
- Continue to do things differently
- Feel differently
- Think differently
Once change is fashioned, these strategies will be action plans specifically created for different roles within organizations. These action plans and strategies provide an agenda and guidance for the successful execution of activities which drive utilization and adoption.

Effective training is imperative once you have the change message in the open. It is vital that your people know that they can expect informal and structured training to arm them with the needed knowledge and skills to operate smoothly and efficiently when the change rolls out. Training could include on-the-job mentoring and coaching or in-person training sessions or online learning modules. Key questions to ask within your organization would be:
Which training methods would deliver the best results within your industry? I NEVER implement a global approach as each client and organization has its own unique approach to change.
Another key question to ask is what skills and behaviors do you staff need to achieve the desired results?
