Change management entails thoughtful planning and sensitive implementation, and above all, consultation with, and involvement of, the people affected by the changes. If you force change on people normally problems arise. Change must be realistic, achievable and measurable. These aspects are especially relevant to managing personal change. Before starting organizational change, ask yourself: What do we want to achieve with this change, why, and how will we know that the change has been achieved? Who is affected by this change, and how will they react to it? How much of this change can we achieve ourselves, and what parts of the change do we need help with? These aspects also relate strongly to the management of personal as well as organizational change.
Many technology oriented consulting firms struggle when trying to address change management because it is more conceptual and deals with predicting behaviors and responses to change. Without understanding the impacts to the people that make up an organization when introducing change, and putting into practice strategies that will mitigate people’s natural resistance to change, it can be difficult to achieve success in any activity that requires change.
