Helping you transform your business and reap the benefits that a ‘digital first’ mindset can deliver.
When change is managed well, an organisation can achieve its desired transformation quicker and be more effective in its response to other impacting and future changes. Considering the change maturity and the readiness of the organisation and its employees in advance of initiating a significant change initiative is crucial. How your employees respond and react to the proposed change cannot be underestimated as true change comes about when individuals in the organisation transition effectively from their current state to the desired future state.
Robust Readiness Assessment
Readiness assessments or diagnostics should be conducted across several aspects; organisational context, level of change impact and organisational change maturity. Out of these assessments the ones that are usually ignored as part of change preparation is the organisational context within the proposed change will need to take place and the level of change maturity. There is typically some discussion or light review at the start of the project of the level of the change impact in terms of the drivers for change, type of change (simple or complex), how many people are in scope (all Directorates or one service area) and to what extent the we think the change will impact on our employees roles and ways of working.
Benefits of Readiness Assessments
All the data gathered from the business change readiness assessments can be used in the first instance to help inform the right level of financial investment required for Business Change to be successful. This data also needs to feed directly into the project’s change management planning and is critical to the development of the change management strategy as it will be aligned to both the potential high level of change impact and the unique attributes of your organisation.
