The Change Management Checklist

With or without digital technology, all markets are changing rapidly. Change Management is therefore an essential approach for any company that wants to remain competitive. Change Management brings together the processes that will facilitate the adaptation to change within organisations.

Change Management: who is in charge?

All project leaders are concerned by Change Management, not only those in Human Resources or Communications. Successful projects include a Change Management component that enables players to be mobilised and the resistance to change to be addressed effectively.

Change Management: what is at stake?

All companies, large and small, are concerned.

People first

The success of any change relies on the human factor in companies. To do this, the mechanisms of understanding and assimilation must be taken into consideration. Indeed, Change Management is most effectively applied with pedagogy.

Bringing meaning

The strongest lever of Change Management should be based on the analysis of ways of working. This raises 2 questions:

  • Pourquoi doit-on changer ? C’est la dimension liée à l’extérieur de l’entreprise,
  • Pour quoi change-t-on ? C’est ce qui va changer dans l’entreprise.

Supporting digital transformation

The subject is top of mind for all management committees. Digital transformation is integrated into the strategy of 40% of companies and for 60%, it is a medium-term priority.

Change management enables teams to be involved in the changes that the company is undergoing or will undergo. Teams take ownership of the new provisions and can thus turn them into a new source of added value.

Resistance to change: the taboo obstacle

Change = resistance to change, is human. We are afraid of what we do not know.

The basis will therefore be:

  • La compréhension des avantages à passer à un nouveau modèle
  • Le deuil de l’ancien modèle
  • Faire ressentir les bénéfices du nouveau modèle par des groupes tests
  • Propagation à l’ensemble de la société
