What is Organizational Change Management?

Today’s leaders around the world cite culture and employee engagement as one of their top organizational challenges. They are in a position to identify and assess the need for change in their organizations as certain issues are only evident like a tip of the iceberg.

In order to kick start change management, leaders can do these two things.

  1. Constantly Ask Why? Why do we do it this way! If “That’s the way we’ve done it always” is the answer, it’s time to delve deep into underlying issues that are waiting to be addressed.
  2. Consult an expert from outside and allow them to experience your firm for a while. They might be able to bring out the existing flaws. New perspectives always end in benefits.

Factors contributing to failure:

  1. Management behavior does not support change
  2. Employees’ resistant to change
  3. Inadequate resources / budget
  4. Other obstacles

Organizational culture eats organizational change for breakfast, lunch and dinner- so, don’t leave it unattended.

Mind-set Shifts for Organizational Transformation

  • From profit to purpose
  • From hierarchies to networks

The most profound business challenge we face today is how to build organizations that can change as fast as change itself. – Gary Hamel

An Employee always tend to think and fear “My boss does not like me!” This mentality stops him/her from expressing his/her thoughts freely. This is a definite do-harm factor for the firm as suggestions from employees are valuable as they stem from their work experiences. Be it inter personal or even judgemental, an employee must be given a free hand to sincerely express his point of view.
