The implementation of change management helps to support, facilitate, and embed our organisational design and job architecture interventions. This is a process that ideally commences prior to the start of an organisational design / job architecture project and continues throughout and beyond the project’s lifecycle.

Why Change Management is required?

  • Studies estimate that up to 80% of successful project implementation is directly related to people related soft issues.
  • On average, about 20% of the time and effort is spent on developing a plan to address these issues.
  • The plans that are developed are often not informed by understanding of human behaviour, and are insufficient and ineffective in addressing resistance.

When do Change Interventions fail?

  • When there is a lack of a compelling case
  • Failing to understand what change really is
  • Failing to engage with employees
  • Ineffective implementation
