Enabling Successful Change

Organizations are expanding to access markets in all regions of the world and every day technologies are introduced that stimulate new opportunities. Some industries are consolidating while others are now deregulated. Managing change quickly and effectively is a competency that is imperative, regardless of the size of the organization, for success in today’s marketplace. The change may be precipitated by a merger or acquisition, a new business model, a technology implementation, or a host of other catalysts. It is common knowledge that close to 70% of change initiatives fail, or worse, create a new set of problems.

a vast increase in the probability of success in managing change initiatives by intervening in the common and invariant dynamics that can thwart performance with any change initiative.

Why Change Initiatives Fail

A dive into the literature on managing change and the high degree of failed initiatives reveals a common set of reasons for failure. These include:

  • Resistance to change
  • Lack of executive alignment
  • No senior executive champion
  • Unrealistic expectations
  • Lack of cross-functional project teams
  • Ancillary stakeholders are involved too late
  • Project charter too narrow

Insigniam supports clients to produce intended results and achieve the benefits of enhanced competitive prowess by effectively managing change.

  • Original approaches to designing the change that include using design as a point of leverage for powerful implementation.
  • Leadership that positions the alterations so they are welcomed and embraced.
  • Install clear decision rights, accountabilities, leadership actions, and processes.
  • Origins of resistance are revealed and disengaged, and the concerns of people affected by change are constructively addressed.
  • Delivery of breakthrough business results, on time, with a workforce that is energized rather than burnt out.
