Change is the New Normal
The only constant in todayís work environment is change. Whether itís changing technologies, changing procedures, or even changes in leadership, it has become apparent that organizations are not properly prepared to handle the substantial amount of change they are facing.
We often assume that a change in our organizationís technology, process, or procedure will automatically improve performance. We become excited by the thought of change. In our search for a new tool or the silver bullet, we forget a key ingredient:†the people making the change. All too often, changes are pushed onto employees who arenít ready or willing to adopt them.
To help organizations move forward during times of significant change, the Wisconsin School of Business Center for Professional & Executive Development put together a quick-start guide. This guide helps organizations pull change from within their organization, identify which questions need to be asked before implementing organizational change, measure the impact of change, and prevent common mistakes during the change process.
