Organizational change management is a process that employs the tools and techniques of professional organizations, such as consulting firms, to help individuals and organizations adapt to change. The goal of this approach is to improve the process with which change is introduced and adopted throughout an organization. The aim of such efforts is to get people involved in making decisions about how the organization will respond to change and what potentially needs to be changed.

Exploring the concept of organizational change along with common mistakes made by leaders, we will examine methods that organizations can use to minimize risk while also gaining a competitive advantage. If you are looking to stay ahead of the competition and plan for the future, this session is for you!


What is change management?

Organizational Change has become an inevitable part of our business world, and most organizations are adopting new technology and procedures. But it is no good to leave the people’s side of the change. The financial success of these changes will be more dependent on how individuals in the organization embrace the change than how well you draw organization charts or process diagrams.

People are central to the success of any change. Change management builds on the principles of other disciplines like leadership and learning, by examining processes through which people can adopt new practices, values, ideas, and behaviors in a way that is mutually beneficial to all involved with the change.


The change management process:

Process-wise, change management consists of the steps taken by team members on particular projects. When it comes to change management strategy, it includes three main phases:


  1. Preparing for change:

The assessment helps determine the most efficient strategy.

      2. Managing change:

How changes management factors into the project plan.

     3. Reinforcing change:

The compliance audits and mechanisms deploy to cement the change.


Reasons for deploying change management:

Here are 10 reasons for deploying change management in your organization:

1) Handling the changes occurring frequently:

Successful organizations are often changed, and it is important to be good at performing change.

2) Aligning organizational practice with organizational values:

Organizations that appreciate the value of their people will benefit from these new change developments. 

3) Driving more successful change:

When businesses effectively implement change management, they achieve better outcomes and results.

4) Addressing the costs of poorly managed change:

Organizations usually have some examples of poorly managed changes, which creates stress and confusion. If under-delivered change is not handled properly, it becomes unbearable for an organization to progress.

5) Preparing the organization for the future:

Organizations and industries need to stay competitive with crucial changes that are essential for success.

6) Creating consistency and efficiencies in approach:

The institution is more effective when every employee has the same approach to implementing change management practices.

 7) The building needed internal capabilities:

Optimizing organizational change management with new learning technologies.

 8) Help to select critical projects and training the project team: 

Change management practice trains the organization’s project team to avoid any kind of consequences or unsatisfactory results. Building change management capabilities increases success on critical projects and initiatives.

9) Forming a Change Management Office:

Management often takes the step of building formal structures to control change. Creating a procedure, managing re-organizations, and training supervisors on how to handle change management are some ways they do this.

10) Adopting a common change management methodology:

By defining a standard for change management, organizations may better incorporate people into the change process. This can be done through a rigid training program, or by selecting an existing methodology and providing continual improvement to it. 



Deployment of change management training should start with considering the project as a “project”, which is managed. The “technical” side defines the future state and the strategies necessary to make progress toward that future state. Whereas, “people” side build support for change management by applying it in their own work.
