Top 7: 2022 Change Management Insights
1. Is a Digital Adoption Platform Right for Your Organization?
When an organization implements a new technology, a strong change management effort is needed to ensure seamless execution and adoption. To supplement those change management efforts, a digital adoption platform (DAP) can be a useful tool; however, there are considerations that must be taken into account first. In this eBook, Eileen George, principal consultant, and Ashley McNeil, senior consultant, discuss how DAPs can be leveraged as performance support for change management efforts during your next technology implementation for accelerated learning and adoption.
2. How to Approach Change Management in Supply Chain Planning Tools and Technologies
Global supply chain disruptions, inflation pressure, labor shortages, and more forced companies to rethink and reconsider their current tools and technologies in efforts to provide better supply chain visibility. While tools and technologies are meant to help companies better prepare for and respond to disruption, many fail when they adopt advanced planning tools and technologies… but why? In this piece, Sebastian Valencia, partner, and Andrea Weeks, principal consultant, discuss the importance of focusing on the people and implementing attentive change management initiatives to enable success.
3. Key Roles for Successful and Sustainable Change Management
Too often, when organizations undergo a change management effort, they fail. Whether it’s resistance to change, a lack of executive buy-in, or misaligned priorities, companies can find themselves struggling to adapt to new initiatives or adopt new processes. However, a focus on the people involved can help to mitigate this. In this piece, Shane Partington, director, walks us through key team roles for successful and sustainable change management.
4. Enabling a Return to Office Plan with OCM and UX Principles
Both during and following the COVID-19 pandemic, companies were forced to adopt new ways of working. For many, this meant offering hybrid or completely virtual options for employees. As companies continue to navigate and implement “return to office” plans, they should consider approaching their decisions through both an organizational change management (OCM) and user experience (UX) lens. In this eBook, Eileen George, principal consultant, and Sara Morris, senior visual branding communications, and UX/UI design consultant, explore OCM and UX considerations for companies bringing their employees back into the office.
5. Considerations for Organizational Transformation
As companies go through organizational transformations, they often have lofty performance or growth goals they’ve set out to achieve. As such, change management initiatives must be a key consideration. But change management efforts don’t always succeed, so how can leaders ensure they’re harnessing the maximum potential of their transformation? In this piece, Shane Partington, director, discusses five key facets to help companies ensure their change management efforts are embraced and sustained for long-term success.
6. A Disciplined Approach: Change Management for Regulatory Compliance
Change management efforts in the life sciences space have serious implications when it comes to ensuring compliance. In such a heavily regulated industry, these efforts apply to any change across the entire product lifecycle and are critical to ensuring there are no unintended consequences of any change. In this piece, Susan Shockey, principal quality systems consultant, explains the importance of a disciplined approach to change for regulatory, quality, and compliance management in the life sciences.
7. Establishing Change Management KPIs
Key performance indicators (KPIs) are critical for measuring any type of progress or success – including change management efforts. KPIs for change management efforts can help your organization reduce implementation gaps, make data-backed decisions, and track improvements before, during, and after change. In this piece, Clarence Thomas, principal consultant, explores change management KPIs and their importance for any change management plan.
