Once in a decade, some changes will happen in an organisation, and more recently, maybe once a year. But today’s digital workplace changes are taking place on a monthly, weekly, daily and even hourly basis.

So how do organisations are undergoing constant changes, and how they are managing both the long-term strategical challenges and the daily tactical ones?

What is Change Management?

Change Management resembles an umbrella because it covers all types of processes implemented to prepare and support organisational change. These range from methodologies applied to resources, business processes and all other operational aspects of a project. Change Management often refers to a change control process when working on a project. That is, the process of changes in scope to a project are formally approved as a change management system.

Change management isn’t merely about projects and organisations. You’re preparing, equipping and supporting team members in your organisation to adopt a change. This leads the project in a successful path. Yes, change can happen anywhere and at any time, change management offers a structured method that can control your project. But it is necessary to manage that change by the strong leader. To execute the best plan and respond to change, first, a clear definition of change management must be understood.

Different Types of Change Management

It is important to categorise change as occurring in three distinct categories. By splitting the large subject into small subsets of change it becomes more manageable.

Individual Change Management: 

People are the main cause of all change. You can change the procedures, but if you don’t address the human in the room, then you’re not going to change anything. To get people to change, you must know your core part. How and when should training be offered to help the organisation with the transition? The tools of this trade are psychological; even neuroscience can help with finding the right angle to steer a person from one behaviour to another.

Organisational Change Management: 

The people in your team are the core target for an effective change, there are larger organisational issues you must address if you want to create real change in a project. To execute this plan first identifying the groups that require change and how they must change. Then create a plan that addresses these components of the project, which includes making everyone aware of the change, leading and the change through some other method like training, coaching that change in congress with the management of the whole project.

Enterprise Change Management:

Taking a setup from the organisational change is to deal with the complete enterprise. You’re more likely to execute change on the micro-level, as strategic engagement with change has been applied to the very workings of the organisation. It creates an agile organisation, able to stay flexible and adapt quickly to changes as they occur.

According to John Kotter’s Change Leadership process

  1. Create Urgency
  2. Form a Powerful Coalition
  3. Create a Vision for the Change
  4. Communicate the Vision
  5. Remove Obstacles
  6. Create Short-Term Wins
  7. Build on the Change
  8. Anchor the Change

To deliver successful change management, organisations need to follow multiple techniques. If an organisation is undergoing some constant changes, then agility needs to be a living, breathing part of the company culture.
