Change Management

What are the essential characteristics of a change management process?

It may be simply stated as moving the business forward through a structured implementation of new methods of working and behaviour that create value and are embraced by employees and stakeholders.

Why change current practices?

Usually the actual financial and/or forecast position dictates that a different way of working is necessary if the business is to survive. The development of new strategies to combat a downturn in business fortunes will be required together with robust plans for their implementation.

Beware! Success may not materialise unless all appropriate people are supportive of the change and participate in the implementation.
