In today’s business uncertainty, the ability to respond to change as well as manage people quickly and coherently is crucial to the survival of organisations.
Organisational change is inevitable in today’s changing business world and is complex due to the interdependencies between stakeholders, organisation and supporting technologies. The softer aspects of business change, such as changing behaviour, gaining buy-in of employees, developing staff capabilities, managing people risks and organisational restructuring, are critical to achieving the desired business outcomes.
It is not organisations that adapt to change, it is their people. However, there is a risk of the people element being overlooked in any change initiative. About 75% of all organisational change programmes fail, largely because employees feel left out of the process and end up lacking the motivation, skills and knowledge to adopt new systems and procedures.
The recipe for successful change management is well-known and deceptively simple – align the trinity of people, processes and technology with authentic leadership and effective business strategy.
