Change Management


The Only Constant Is Change​

Manage change as if your future depends on it.
The future appears to be one of economic unpredictability, global instability, technology advances, and intense competition. Today's organizations must be able to respond quickly to rapid changes in markets, competitors, and economic situations.  Many boards have appointed CEO's and other senior leaders with the explicit mandate to navigate their organizations through change. This means that change is not only to be expected, it cannot be avoided.    
Managing change today is not optional.
Managing change is a requirement if an organization is to continue to thrive. Leaders must actively lead change efforts to align the organization and to bring about real change. It requires leaders to have a mindset of transformation and to communicate a compelling vision. Effective change management also requires executing a change plan that engages Associates, reduces resistance, and results in buy-in and commitment. Only when an organization manages change successfully can it develop the agility and flexibility to thrive in today's complex and dynamic environments.
Unfortunately, change initiatives are not always successful.
The data regarding the success of change programs is not encouraging:
  •   According to McKinsey, approximately 70% of all change initiatives do not achieve their objectives, primarily due to employee resistance and lack of management alignment. [1]
  • Other research indicates change initiatives fail anywhere from 50% - 60% of the time. 
No matter which research you choose to believe, common wisdom suggests that change management initiatives are successful less than half the time.  If managing change is no longer a luxury for most organizations, it's not a good sign that organizations are not having as much success as needed.

Successful Change Management 

Excellent change management programs outperform.
While data indicate that most organizations are not successful in executing their change initiatives, there is other data that suggest that if an organization can create and implement an effective change management program, the results are dramatic. A study by Google showed that organizations with excellent change management programs out performed those with none/poor change management programs by 30 percentage points.​ [2]
