Defining Change Management

There are plenty of complex ways to define Change Management. I try to keep it simple and easy to understand.

Good things often come in threes, so here is change defined by the ‘Rule of Three’.

Change Management is how we transform business.

We can change the person, the team structure and/or the organisation’s attitudes and behaviours.

We have to decide which of these three areas we are changing and then move from point X to point Y.  This is where the fun starts.

Change success can be defined in these three areas;

  1. Business Strategy or the Vision – this is about communication and leadership
  2. Business Process or How do we get from here to there – this is about motivating  people to go on the journey
  3. Organisational Behaviour or What the teams and people do next – this is about making change stick

Successful change project leaders recognise the above from the outset of every project.

Have a great week.
