Developing a Change Strategy
The key stage in any management of change is the development of a change strategy. It is here that those leading/organising the change can:
- invest time and effort in really establishing and defining what changes are needed, what the outcome will be, and what risks and disruption might take place.
- formulate a set of actions/initiatives which will stimulate those changes.
- start the process of communicating about for the changes.
This stage should establish three things:
1. What are the key change issues?
The issues that we face that make the change necessary or desirable? These are the things that this change initiative will attempt to address or resolve.
2. What will be the likely outcome of these changes?
What sort of organisation or operation will we look like? What should be the mission/vision?
3. How are we intending to tackle these issues and changes?
What is our overall plan of action or programme of events?
