Strategy & Change Management
Change management is the systematic approach and application of knowledge, tools and resources to deal with change.
It involves defining and adopting corporate strategies, structures, procedures and technologies to handle changes in external conditions and the business environment. Effective change management goes beyond project management and technical tasks undertaken to enact organisational changes and involves leading the "people side" of major change within an organisation. The primary goal of change management is to successfully implement new processes, products and business strategies while minimising negative outcomes.
To keep pace in a constantly evolving business world, organisations often need to implement enterprise-wide changes affecting their processes, products and people. Change is a fact of life in businesses today. It can be difficult, and people often resist. But to develop an agile workplace culture, organisations should follow a systematic approach to managing major change. Organisational development experts have established approaches for successfully navigating through change.
HR should be involved in major organisational changes from the beginning.
