Change as a factor of survival
Change is learning - learning is change
Excellent Change Management is more and more becoming a key factor for the sustainable success of a company. On the one hand, we have the mega trends such as globalization, demographic changes, on the other hand we have the increasing complexity of products and processes, acceleration, changes on the job market and environmental regulations leading to a steady need of adaptation in the companies. Changes must be coped with permanently by the firms in order to survive and remain competitive, because fast:
Adaptation to new conditions secures advantages of competition.
Adaptation to new consumer needs secures market shares.
Adaptation to and use of new technologies secures profit margins.
Reality shows that most changes are often perceived as threads and not as changes. Market niches and wealth might fall vanish. The loss of power and consequently the loss of security causes worries and anxieties. Only the future will show if a change will be successful or not. There is no guarantee of success. Astonishingly, it is more difficult to learn in an altered way than in a new way.
Reason for failure in change processes:
Too many changes at a time
Conflicts between interest groups of the change process
Insufficient integration and information of the employees concerned by the changes
Blocking and prevention of changes due to the daily business
Missing controlling and monitoring of change processes lower the chances of success of change processes
Understanding change means stearing change
Similar to the course of a team development through the four respectively five phases and the non-existing possibility to leave out the storming phase, the process of change follows a concrete and clear pattern that can always be observed again. Profit by our experience and our know-how to initiate changes more quickly and in an easier way in order to achieve better results.
