Change management means planning fundamental changes in an organization and implementing them in a structured process. Selected measures are defined in order to transform departments or even the entire organization from an initial state to a defined target state.
Change management plays a special role in the implementation of digital transformation. Many companies focus on digitalization projects. But they can introduce the best systems: If employees are not involved in the change processes at an early stage, thus promoting acceptance of the planned transformation from the outset, the system will not work on a day-to-day basis.
Change management should not be confused with just any change. It is not about changing individual processes – that would not be change in this sense. Change management is about fundamental change that affects the entire company.
It is based on systematic planning, implementation and control as well as special communication of the changes to ensure that the innovations are accepted step by step and are effective.
Successful change management includes …
- a clear objective,
- transparent communication and
- a high degree of adaptability as part of an iterative process.
