WHAT WE MEAN BY CHANGE
Every project is a change. Every change is a project.
In today’s rapidly changing world, your business needs to adapt quickly to survive, let alone prosper.
Whether your business needs to integrate new IT software, or transition through a merger or a restructure, create a shift in strategic direction, or improve systems and processes, it must have the ability to change.
In business we call these major changes projects.
MAKE CHANGE HAPPEN. MAKE IT PERSONAL.
When delivering your projects have you ever experienced the following?
- Projects going over time – problems sticking to the schedule, budget and timelines?
- Managers and supervisors who resist the changes you need to make happen?
- People who critique the project even though they don’t fully understand the project or outcomes?
- People who say they are on board, but then ‘white ant’ the process behind the scenes?
- People who won’t even entertain the ‘new way’ of doing things because of how badly projects have been done in the past?
Research shows the number one obstacle to success for major change projects is employee resistance. For an initiative to succeed you need to make change personal. No project can be delivered on time and on budget without people to drive it.
Employees need to feel supported and encouraged to adjust their behaviours so that they can do their jobs differently. If these individuals are unhappy, disengaged or overwhelmed then your project is likely to fail. By properly integrating project management with change management you can create a positive foundation for change that will ensure you project’s long-term success.
