The greatest risk during periods of change is that internal stakeholders are to used to how things have been done in the past. This can create unseen opportunities for problems to arise - particularly in the areas of workplace culture and management systems. Examples of critical change periods include:
Reviewing current status and systems and developing a sound change management plan with respect to an individual businesses strengths and weaknesses can help to avoid financial loss, market rejection, culture crash and high staff turnover.
The change management process always starts with a professional and experienced review of your organisations management systems and procedures.
The process ensures you account for unseen risk factors and maximise potential benefits of organisational evolution.
Stakeholder engagement typically starts at the top, with the board, shareholders and executive team and can be heavily biased.
Comprehensive stakeholder engagement seeks input from, and communicates, to stakeholders at all levels, from management, to long term employees and even new hires.
