Change management

Leading a change management portfolio is not an easy task. There comes a lot of resistance from all corners the moment you announce a change or rather much before. The moment you declare a beginning of efforts for development or deployment of a change, the resistance starts popping in. This all creates a lot of distraction and could become a major cause of delays for your initiation, development, efforts and deployment. To handle it carefully you need to learn some tactics so that the whole gamut moves in a right direction in a very positive manner. This definitely can’t happen if momentum is not synergized and the efforts are not synchronized.

To be a successful change manager, here are few suggestions that I gained from my own experience:

  • 1. Change is universal phenomena and there is no life without change. This is the only constant of life and profession. Resistance to change mars your growth for sure.
  • 2. When the change is significant stay focused on the change without going negative against individual inhibitions.
  • 3. Show the broader picture of change in their own language to the relevant stakeholders to get a go ahead.
  • 4. Keep it plain, short, simple and crisp without deviation from the main topic.
  • 5. Take top management in confidence before approaching others.
