Transformations, when managed properly, create a paradigm shift within the operating culture of the organization where they have been implemented. When managed poorly, they alienate senior management from the workforce, are normally introduced under duress resulting in compromised acceptance of the transformed environment, and ultimately in an expensive IT solution that is never fully integrated into the operating culture of the organization.
Menghrani GmbH’s Global experience with multi-year Organizational Change Management and Transformation programmes has resulted in supporting organizations through the key stages of transition and transformation:
- Preparing for change – identifying the need for change, gaining board level support, defining and agreeing measurable goals and timelines, and carrying out extensive due diligence from a technical, organizational, operational, commercial, legal, regulatory and compliance viewpoint.
- Managing change – assigning accountability, removing obstacles, managing resistors and risks throughout the processes of change. It is during this stage that the transition and transformation plans created during the preparation stage are employed.
- Reinforcing change – institutionalizing the changes through cyclical, incremental positive reinforcement with visible benefits for the workforce
