Ensure an IT or digital programme delivers the business benefits, not just the technology benefits.
Change Management addresses the human factors fundamental to success.
It helps understanding and planning, and to articulate the question of ‘what’s in it for me?’ for all participants.
Our methodology provides a tangible set of deliverables, including:-
1. Vision workshop
2. Business readiness assessment
3. Communications strategy and plan
A business which is motivated and genuinely ready, with communications, role changes, training and senior management / stakeholders all in place will embrace change more successfully.
We start with a change readiness assessment (CRA), often with board level engagement.
This helps your programme gain and maintain the senior sponsorship it needs.
We have years of experience managing change in uncertain environments.
The approach is systematic, with tangible outputs for every stage.
Our experts bring the approach to engage, communicate and plan the transformation.
