Change Management Diagnosis

Change management diagnosis, in terms of responsiveness, readiness, impact, key results, and environmental intelligence is critical to achieve lasting results from strategic organizational change. Two primary change management diagnostics/ tools to assist your business in change management diagnosis for strategic advantage are:
• Strategy Awareness Profile, and
• Strategic Change Readiness Diagnostic

To rally your people and resources behind a strategic change or breakthrough performance, you need solid information on the depth of understanding your people have about the strategy or change, and address their key expectations and concerns. The Strategy Awareness Profile provides your organization useful insight in these areas.

The Strategy Awareness Profile covers issues such as:
• Understanding and insight on the strategic situation
• Effective alignment and shared purpose
• Buy-in of strategic drive and action plans
• Level of business-wide involvement and commitment.

The Strategic Change Readiness Diagnostic helps key stakeholders in your change effort to holistically explore your prevailing strategic situation, challenges and commitments. It gives you useful input and feedback on key areas needing attention to ensure that your strategic change management effort achieves desirable results.

The Strategic Change Readiness Diagnostic provides your organization vivid insight on the level of readiness and support for your strategic change effort. It addresses such questions as:
• How much is understood by stakeholders regarding your strategic situation?
• What are the stakeholders' concerns and expectations?
• What are the perceptions and orientations stakeholders have about the change effort?
• What tendencies are represented and how will they impact on your planned change?
• Is your business equipped for dealing with the ramifying effects and outcomes of the change?

Our approach for helping you develop your organization's Strategy Awareness Profile and administering the Strategic Change Readiness Diagnostic facilitates your people's ownership of, and commitment to, your strategic change effort.

Strategy and Change Management Commitment Roundtables

Strategy and Change Commitment Roundtables ensure that your change efforts are streamlined with your strategic challenges while promoting the commitment of key stakeholders in the change management process. The commitment of stakeholders in any change effort is, perhaps, the most important factor, after a vivid understanding and focus of the strategic situation and strategic drive has been communicated and understood. Driving this commitment requires paying attention to key human factors and aligning them to the strategic change imperatives you are dealing with.

With the imaginative and insightful ideas and tools your people employ during the roundtables, the Strategy and Change Management Commitment Roundtables help your business develop the responsiveness, organizational culture and leadership to make your change management attain your vision corporate-wide while promoting your people's actualizing attributes for high performance. Using the FEDARâ„¢ framework in a series of one-day strategy commitment roundtables helps your business facilitate its people's commitment to its strategic thrust and vision. This includes employing the TOP-TECH™ model to facilitate your people's collaborative skills for high performance.

Strategic Change Impact Review

Strategic change impact review is critical to achieving lasting organizational change.

How well is your business doing in its strategic change effort? How do you measure the success of strategic change in your organization? These seem easy to answer?......Is it not obviously a matter of measuring the change effort on impact of what your business considers to be strategic? Such a view is obviously simplistic...

A key limitation is when an organization has a narrow view on the results its strategic change efforts are producing or should be producing. One example of this is when an organization is unaware of the ramifying aspects of its change efforts just because its top management conceives measures of success in traditional terms in discontinuous environment. Another problem is when a business fails to factor in special interest issues or local concerns when using models of strategic change assessment.

For ultimate business performance, it is imperative that you take a strategic view of the results being produced by your change effort with an eye on insight and versatility. This means undertaking a systematic change impact assessment or review focusing on effective synergy. It means that you do an overall change impact assessment or survey in order to see what benefits and results in the long haul your change effort is producing. You do this periodically within the context of a total organization development framework.

What results and outcomes are your change efforts producing? How are your change efforts impacting your people, and the various organizational systems, subsystems and facets? Are the change efforts impacting on effective organizational synergy? You can find free articles on managing change at Prosci's Change Management Learning Center which highlight related issues.

Consider some change failure facts. Sometime ago, theodcompany.com featured 10 errors as the most common errors hindering a change program from achieving its long-term objective. The first five errors listed — including trying to fix a process rather than changing it, failure to focus on the business process, and settling for little successes or minor results rather than strategic ones — primarily deal with failure to create effective organizational synergy and alignment for sustainable high performance.

To assist your business in strategic change review producing insight for effective organizational synergy, we use a customized change-impact assessment tool deriving from an exploratory diagnosis or survey. This may be developed based on feedback obtained after strategy commitment roundtables or interactive sessions in your organization. The assessment focuses on the overall impact of any strategic change effort your business has undertaken organization-wide, or in some units or functions, advisably during critical phases of the strategic change process.

Change Management Workshops

Usually, change management workshops result from strategy and change commitment roundtables. They focus specifically on key issues identified in such roundtables and/or from the change management diagnosis. We adopt collaborative and consultative approaches to help your organization design theme, focused change management workshops and syndicate activities.

The workshops and syndicate activities are customized to effectively and efficiently address the unique strategic realities of your organization so as to make the change achieve your desired business objectives. The change management workshops are facilitated with the TOP-TECH™ model.

In addition, some of the OD Synergy Workshops™ and the methodology employed on the OD Synergy Workshops™ are effective for strategic change management.
