Workplace Change Management: Is It Really Necessary? - C&L ;

Until 15 years ago, a major change occurred seldom in the life-cycle of an organisation. If it did, it focused mainly on managing crises. These days, however, change happens as a systematic fact of life for most organisations. This article will highlight why Change Management skills are essential when organisational adjustments are made, and how C&L Skills Management can help your business make a smooth transition.

While the technical side of the change will most certainly be complex, getting people on board is an important, often overlooked aspect of the change process. After all, individuals will most likely have to do their jobs differently, and it’s the degree to which they change their behaviours that will determine the outcome for your business — controlling this human side of a process adjustment is called change management.

There are numerous reasons to employ effective change management on both large- and small-scale efforts. One of these is that organisational change happens one person at a time. New tools or processes are not enough to achieve organisational change; you need individuals in the organisation to adopt new values and begin working in new ways. This is achieved by implementing levels of awareness, desire for change, knowledge, ability and reinforcement.

Poorly managed change can also be costly to an organisation. Productivity can decline on a larger scale for a longer duration than necessary, managers may be unwilling to devote the time or resources needed to support the change, suppliers may begin to feel the impact and see the disruption caused by the change, and valued employees may leave the organisation.

To help increase the likelihood of success, change managers need the skills to make the most of the frameworks, models, tools and processes available to them. The product of their work needs to be integrated into other disciplines that help the organisation run smoothly. Change management training enables organisations to deliver results on each change more effectively and build competencies that grow the organisation’s capacity to tackle more changes at one time.

C&L Change Management offers a comprehensive Change Management programme that will teach you all the essentials on how to deploy a successful change initiative. After the course, you’ll be able to apply a holistic collection of analytical tools and practical approaches to change initiatives, and help build organisational awareness and capability in Change Management.
