The key principle behind change management is to ensure transitions to future states for individuals, teams, projects and organisations are as efficient and straightforward as possible.
Change management is particularly important in today’s business environment, due to globalisation and evolutions in technology. As technology has made it much easier for stockholders, the media and the public to access information about a company, there is an increasing need for changes to be managed carefully and sensitively.
Moreover, for the company and its employees, the ability to adapt to change is essential. However, major changes to an organisation can be difficult due to the organisational structure and culture. Therefore, a vital component of change management is bringing staff on board to increase the likelihood that changes will be accepted and successful.
At Vision, our first step in implementing a change management process is to analyse the present situation in the company. If we prepared the present situation report, we will have full knowledge of this already. If not, we will need to analyse the key processes briefly. We collect information from data analyses, documentation, suggestions from interviews, non-conformity findings, customer complaints, quality control results, etc.
We make sure that we understand the company’s vision and targets and then define headlines for change. After that, we prepare a master plan and establish a project team and sub-teams. Vision’s tried-and-tested work methodology is then utilised to track the projects.
