Eight-Step Change Management Process

Step 1: Urgency Creation

If the whole team in a company wants to lead the organisation in a successful path a change is necessary. Are you planning to make some changes? then you need to make others want it. You can create urgency around what you want to change. Use statistics and visual presentations to make them understand why the change should take place and how the company and employees can be a part of the benefits.

Step 2: Build a Team

If your way of the convincing method is strong, you will win a lot of employee in favour of a change. Now it's a time to build a team to carry out the change from the employee, who support you. Organise your team structure and assign responsibilities to the employees, and make the employees feel that they are important for the organisation.

Step 3: Create a Vision

Having a vision is a must while change takes place. The vision defines clearly to everyone. If you have a clear vision then your team members know why they are working on this change initiative and the rest of the employees in your organisation know why your team is doing the change.

Step 4: Communication of Vision

To implement the change deriving the vision is not just enough. You need to communicate your vision across the organisation. These type of communication should take place frequently and at important forums sessions.

Get the influential people in the company to support your effort. Utilize every chance to communicate your vision; this chance could be a board meeting or just talking over the lunch.

Step 5: Removing Obstacles

Every change takes place with some obstacles. Once you communicate your vision, with your employees you will only be able to get the support from your employees. Always, there are some people who resist the change.

No change takes place without obstacles. Remove the obstacles as soon as they appear. This will increase the dignity of your team as well as the rest of the staff.

Step 6: Go for Quick Wins

Quick wins are the best way to run the organisation on a successful path. By implementing quick wins, your team will have great satisfaction and the organisation will immediately see the benefits of your change initiative.

Now and then, make a quick win decision for different stakeholders, who get affected by the change process. But remember to keep the eye on the long term goals.

Step 7: Let the Change Mature

Due to an early declaration of victory, many change initiatives plans get dropped. If you haven’t implemented the 100% change, people will be dissatisfied when they see the gaps.

Therefore, complete the change process 100% and let it have its own time to get them integrated into the organisational processes before you say it 'over.'
