An organization that undertakes a transformation and its people goes through two distinct phases – the initial transition and then the transformation. This involves a lot of change for the people; a change in the way they way doing their day job, a change in the way their performance is measured and monitored, a change in the way interactions with customers and stakeholders are conducted, a change in the expectation from the organization etc. Change management largely speaks about how to help people and the organization manage these changes in an effective and smooth manner. It also brings to table a set of tools and best practices that will equip the people well in sailing through the transition phase and getting settled post transformation.
For an organization that is embarking on to any transformation, the toughest challenge is to identify :
Change management helps the organization in identifying the answers for the above questions and take necessary steps for mitigation and remediation wherever needed.
The criticality and importance of change management makes it necessary to have an effective change management leading the initiative along with the transformation team. Many organizations mistake change management to be a part of the project management and brings in an efficient internal project management team to handle change management. This poses two sets of risks
The internal team tends not to see or rather will oversee some of the not so evident risks and will tend to consider many things as business as usual (BAU)
Their inexperience in change management will lead to them not following all required steps of proper change management whereby the transition will become a rough ride for people which will result in sub-optimal results of transformation.
They may get pulled into the daily fires, and in the hurry and heist to put out those fires, they may tend to deviate from the newly deployed process and this can jeopardize the the entire transformation.
Hiring someone from the external world can also result in sub-optimal results or sometimes even a risky recipe that can lead to failures. A person coming from external world may not get adapted to your company’s environment and values that quickly. It will also take some time for them to understand the business processes and to establish good relationship with all stakeholders
The best approach under these circumstances is to create a team of an experienced coach / coaching team from the external world and a set of capable internal members during the initial period
