what is change management?

The terms 'change' and 'transformation' are used to describe the process of moving from one state to another. A desired change can relate to different areas—e.g. structure, organisation or culture. Therefore, a change can range from a small project to a merger. While organisational development focuses inwardly on people, processes and structures, the economically based change management approach focuses more on strategies in addition to processes and structures; above all, it permanently considers the environment. However, we question whether change can be 'managed' or whether it is not rather a question of change accompaniment. In our workshops, we combine the attitudes, approaches and tools from organisational development and change management.

why change management?

In today's world, where everything is in a constant state of change, it is important to win employees over to change projects. They should be supported in shaping change projects and in following the path of change.

 

The following four topics illustrate why projects fail:

 

  1. Resistance from managers and employees

  2. Lack of project management

  3. Too fast a pace of change

  4. Unclear objectives and vision

 

The main reason for the resistance of some managers is the fear of losing influence and status. Resistance on the part of employees is due to their feeling that they are not being sufficiently accompanied emotionally when it comes to the change.

 

Only the holistic accompaniment of the change with targeted consideration of the known reasons for failure can lead the change project to success.
