What is Change Management for us?

  • Change Management, how we live it, is a situational approach supporting the movement/ alteration/ transition of individuals, teams, or organizations from a current state to a desired future state.
  • “People Processes” focus on managing inter and intra people dynamics, which naturally arise in a changing business environment.
  • On an organizational level Change Management summarizes all tasks, measures and actions that are designed and implemented to support profound, cross-functional and far-reaching, substantive changes (Business Change Process) related to organizations.

Change Management Process serves and pursues Business Change Process

What is a Business Change Process?

It’s a Business Adjustment with a considerable impact on parts or the entire organization. [PMI, Carve Out, Hard Restructuring, Reorganization, New Strategy and Organizational Alignment etc.]

A Change Management Process serves, facilitates, guards, sets the frame and enables (the implementation of) the Business Processes. The Change Management Process is connected to the Business Change Process. It is set up and designed to support and serve the Business Change Processes.

How the Business Change Processes and the Change Management intertwine:

The Business Change Process

1. Emerging
Awareness/
Consciousness
2. Intent/Focus 3. Planning Pathway 4. Implementation/
Execution
5. Control & Adjust
A Business Change Process starts with a felt- need, a wish to adapt or change something. This could include your business strategy, tactics, operations, set-up, organization, processes, market-approach, products or even your clients. This often starts top down in organizations with management perceiving a need for change or a sense of urgency to prepare for the future. Assemble a team, get it involved to pick up the idea and carry it further. Working out: Where we are now and where do we want/need to go? Defining and working out the necessary measures and actions that need to be implemented to achieve the desired aim. (Who needs to do what, with whom and when?) Project Management of Implementation. Executing the necessary measures and actions in the relevant organizations. Did the implemented measures and actions measure up to our intentions? Is there still a gap? What is needed to close the gap? Is the intention still valid?
If necessary the process would continue with step number 2. Intent/Focus again.
