Change management programs are have now become a trend in today’s manufacturing industry which has resulted great numbers for the implementing organizations. With the success numbers going up, many organizations now have started to ingrain change management programs in their work cultures.
During any change management program, it is imperative for the organization to know the hard art as well along with the implementation processes. Whilst this, many companies face difficulties and ultimately fail in their conquest. In this blog for our Transformation Tuesday, we will be telling our readers about the hard side of the change management in order to have them prepared for their change management programs.
1. Time Span
Many companies believe in this myth that the longer the change management programs run, the more is the chance for their failure. The result is exactly opposite. In a research, it was discovered that longer projects are more likely to garner positive numbers than the ones who run for shorter time periods. Every company should conduct a review of the progress made after every two months and should analyze the discovered data to find the loopholes and areas of improvements.
Breaking down the entire target into fragments and scheduling them is another effective way which can help the organization in minimizing the risks involved and getting the optimum results from the change management programs.
2. Performance candor
Performance of an organization during a change management program depends entirely on how do the team members and individuals perform. It is very important for the leadership to clarify the roles and commitments of the individuals and teams. Also, defining accountability is a very crucial aspect in order to restrict the system from getting infected with chaos and inefficiency. Moreover, defining roles also helps the leadership in making the optimum use of an individual’s skills and efficiency in their field of expertise.
Engagement of employees and leadership at the same time is an important pillar in thrusting the change management processes towards success. The executives involved need to back up the entire processes in order to keep the system in loop. Furthermore, engagement from the leadership will ultimately encourage the team members to engage themselves in the process which will consequently result in green numbers. Increased engagement will also improve the communication mechanism of the organization and will motivate them for feedbacks.
In any organization, employees are already busy with their daily routine. Hence, during any change management program, it becomes very difficult for the leadership to generate efforts from the workforce towards change management process as well. It is really important to design the program and implement it in a manner that the workforce gets enough time and space to contribute towards the change management program along with the regular work load. It should be done in a manner where delays are avoided so that the team can stay on a cost efficient path.
Change managements are not easy to manage and needs an all round support throughout the journey. It is a delicated process that needs proper attention and full proof methodologies in order to produce better numbers and greener graphs.
