Withum provides change management consulting and user adoption services across multiple industries backed by our experience.
“It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives, it is the one that is most adaptable to change.”
Change Efforts Fail
Typically as a result of poor change management
Cause of Change Failure
Employee resistance and ineffective management
We focus on numerous areas throughout a change management consulting project including:
- Uncovering hindrances to effective communications.
- Assessing/Monitoring Change Readiness Behavior.
- Identifying Job Role impacts where change is critical to successful adoption.
- Developing effective Training Strategies.
- Establishing or amending Governance Strategy impacts once the change is live to maintain sustainability and report on value realization.
Increase Project “Batting Average”
Project Success: A project’s ability to meet key objectives, to complete milestones on time and within the allotted budget, and to achieve the anticipated returns based on investment in the project.
Develop Ownership to Sustain Change
Ownership: Take the mystery out of change and give it meaning and purpose by sharing information. This action breeds Change Champions, loyalty and empowerment as employees have vested interest in the change and a stake in the process.
Employee Resistance: An employee’s opposition to change or the effects of a change through actions or behavior.
Typical triggers that result in change management and user adoption programs:
- System Implementations (ERP/CRM, Office 365/Microsoft Teams)
- Mergers and/or Acquisitions
- Business Transformation
- Organizational Restructuring
- Cost/Workforce Reduction
- Process Improvements
- Strategy Realignment
- Policy/Procedure Changes
