How change is meaningfully managed, at an organizational level, has never been more crucial, yet misunderstood.
Among the many considerations, three main components that must serve as anchors for today's change management plans include:
- Understanding that change is no longer piecemeal: communications must be understood from the aspect of how they fit into a world of continuous change, not as part of a singular effort
- Factoring in today's world of work: there is a massive amount of up-skilling taking place - how are your messages helping keep your workforce up to speed?
- Appealing to the masses: message perception amongst baby boomers vs. millennials is vast - and where perceptions vary greatly, confusion breeds exponentially
A new normal, no longer defined by risk, fear and avoidance but rather by possibility, agility and opportunity, mandates that we not just manage change, but rather embrace it.
