Change is disruptive by its very nature and the impact is felt throughout the business and beyond. Managers, workers, suppliers and shareholders will all be impacted and their perspectives must be carefully considered and addressed.
Sustainability and competitiveness is dependent on a company’s adaptability. However, as the old saying goes ‘people don’t like change’ and approximately 75% of all change efforts fail. Poorly designed change programmes can fail to galvanise the support of your employees which can be extremely costly. It is common for organisations to lose clients during periods of transition.
Causes of change include:
Mergers and acquisitions
Challenging trading conditions
Outsourcing and other workforce changes
Client requirements forcing diversification
Strategic redesign commanding new skills
