A Change Management strategy can support an organization with responding to the change around it, whilst at the same time minimizing any of the negative effects associated with this change and capitalizing on the transformation.
Change can affect individuals at all levels both within and outside of an organization. Thus, it is safe to say that this template can be beneficial to all stakeholders from internal stakeholders such as employees, managers, and the owners, through to external stakeholders such as suppliers, society, the government, creditors, shareholders, and customers.
Devising a Change Management strategy can allow an organization to consider its focus areas and acknowledge the sort of change that needs to be implemented both internally and externally within the organization. It is extremely important to openly communicate change so that all stakeholders are aware of and understand the progress of change and are able to see the results of such change.
Change Management can help your organization to adapt easily to change, set and achieve goals in a timely manner and identify resources to meet this change. However, in order to do so, you must first consider what areas of the change do you want to focus on? Is this change internal or external?
Examples of focus areas for Change Management could include Performance, Resistance to Change, Business Accountability and Responsibility, and User Proficiency.
Objectives are actionable goals that can help you attain a desirable outcome in the future. You can create and set objectives with fixed timelines and measurable steps to achieve success.
Examples of objectives for the focus area Performance can be but are not limited to: Improve team morale, organizational resilience, commercial income line; Foster a creative environment to improve thinking; Achieve record revenues while increasing profitability.
You can break up the objectives into smaller chunks of goals you want to achieve by creating a few Key Performance Indicators also known as KPIs. What does a key performance indicator mean? Well, the KPI definition that we use is; a measurable value that shows the organization's progress towards achieving key business objectives.
Examples of KPIs to tackle the objective Performance can be but are not limited to: Improve team morale, organizational resilience, commercial income line, are Reduce the number of unauthorized changes and Improve mean lease time (in days) change for processes.
Creating Effective Projects will describe what you will do to accomplish your objectives. It is at this point in your strategic planning process that you will start to scope out exactly what actions you will take in order to achieve certain objectives. Projects should align to one (or more) of your strategic objectives and sit underneath them.
Examples of Projects to Improve your organizational performance could be but are not limited to Conducting a life cycle analysis of the change process implemented, Hosting a virtual event to celebrate rebranding, Promoting new values on the internet and in the office environment, Conducting brainstorming sessions to redefine culture, Working on establishing a new marketing campaign and offering markdowns or increasing prices.
You can create widgets that reflect set KPIs as a means of tracking performance indicators, as well as Project Management Dashboards that can facilitate tracking the progress of your projects. You can choose from a series of widgets that most clearly and best encapsulate the data you want to present and analyze, for instance, a line graph or a bar graph.
