What is Change Management?
With any change, whether it is an ERP Replacement, Process Change, or a full Business Transformation, people must adjust. Change Management recognizes the challenges that go with change and works with the people involved to turn this change from a stress point to a productive and even exciting process.
Why Change Management is important:
It is a well known fact that change is hard. If change is imposed on someone, the likelihood of this being a successful transition is low. Unless they have been involved in the process and they will often resist change, whether it is process, technology, or both. This results in individual and company stress and lost productivity. For that reason, change management is often considered risk mitigation. Non compliance is common, which in worst case scenarios, can lead to outright project failure. With the right change management however, this risk is mitigated and can lead to a successful project outcome at the company and at the individual level.
Good change management includes getting people involved and motivated to be a part of this change rather than imposing it on them. Involving people in the process of change helps them understand the benefits of the change, the reason for the change, and how to manage it in a positive and productive manner.
