Change management process to combat stagnation

In a business climate where things are continually changing, organisations don’t have the option of standing still.

Businesses must adapt in a continually changing and eclectic marketplace in order to maintain a competitive advantage.

Failing to adjust your operations in light of a new competitor, technology, and the broader economic outlook can have severe consequences, including a reduction in profit or perhaps even systematic failure.

As such, business leaders must take a proactive approach to ensure that all facets of the organisation are functioning in line with their business objectives.

This may involve changing management models, the company culture, the key performance indicators, or other business processes.

The success of these changes will depend on the effectiveness of the change management process that the company follows.

At 1ovmany, we’re experts at business transformation and can help you to get the organizational structures that help to unleash the potential of each and every team member and create a bright future for your business.

On this page, we’ll take a closer look at the change management process, including handy tips and how we can help you.

The Change Management Process

Businesses utilise change management when they want to change or alter some or all of their operations.

There’s no shortage of things that companies can change; some are small, such as a component of their internal processes, while others, such as technological infrastructure, company culture, or the company hierarchy, are larger in scope.

Whether large or small, the change process must be managed effectively.

An agile transformation will only be effective if it’s done correctly; if it’s mismanaged, rushed, or simply not well-thought-out, then even slight changes can have a negative impact on an organisation.

Ultimately, the goal of any change management process is to make the business better tomorrow than it is today, through subtle or wholesale changes.

It’s the quality of those changes that’ll determine the outcome.

It’s the role of change management to successfully guide the business into its new state, from the beginning (the current conditions) to the end (the new conditions).

5 Tips For an Effective Change Management Process

You can’t change an organisation, even a small part of it, over night. It takes time and is process-oriented.

Below, we’ll run through 5 tips for ensuring a smooth change management process.


You can’t change anything unless there’s a cultural agreement to do so.

Before diving into the ins and outs of what will change, you need to understand why things must change, and then communicate that understanding to all the key stakeholders, from the management team down to employees.

This helps to remove potential tensions and other problems that may present an obstacle when undergoing an effective change management process.

The Vision and Plan 

It’s one thing to know something must change. It’s another to actually do it.

After the 'what' has been established, business leaders must think about the 'how'. The management strategy for change must be visionary but also realistic.

The plan should detail the strategic goals, how the effectiveness of the change will be measured, the steps that’ll be taken to make the changes, the scope of the change, and the overall cost.

Implementing the Plan

Once you have a detailed, step-by-step plan, you can begin the journey towards organisational change.

At this point, the management strategy should shift from planning to support.

The company’s leaders should offer help and guidance to employees that’ll allow them to make the change, as well as keep an eye on any potential obstacles that may thwart success.

Ensuring the Changes Run Deep

You can’t change an organisation without everyone pulling in the same direction.

This is especially due when trying to change something as significant as the company culture.

Reaffirming the need for change with the employees will help to prevent the company from falling back into its old ways.

Keep in mind that some employees can be resistant to change and may require more assistance. The more integrated the employees are into the plan, the easier it will be to manage.

Reviews and Changes 

You can change a component of your organisation, but that doesn’t guarantee that it’ll be successful.

All management projects contain an element of risk, and change management is no different.

It’s important to establish metrics by which you can measure the success or failure of the change and make adjustments if necessary.
