‘People are at the heart of change.’
People’s values and behaviour all work for and against change in organisations. People issues have proven to be a mitigating factor in most change programmes. Success or failure of a programme is often determined by an organisation’s employees.Understanding why the change is happening and what the changes mean for the organisation’s people can dramatically improve their co-operation and receptiveness to the change. Working collaboratively at all levels within an organisation is a key factor in delivering change effectively.Fear and confusion can be managed effectively through communications with the organisation’s employees during and after the change. Managing employees pro-actively will result in a better working environment increasing productivity for all within the changed organisation.
