Change Management

Done well, change management can enhance business performance. Sia Partners UK helps our clients by ensuring that the complex elements of change are managed effectively and by supporting them through the transition phase.

What is change management?

Change Management is the discipline of preparing individuals, teams, and organisations to transition to a desired future state. Change Management consists of planned actions and activities to ensure benefits are realised and time and cost impacts are minimised, whilst developing self-sustaining mechanisms for long term success.

How does it help?

Many industries are undergoing increasing levels of change as companies look to optimise their asset portfolios and transform their operating models. While the pace, complexity, and scale of change is increasing, companies often lack the internal skills, experience, and appetite to manage it effectively. You might be involved in a large scale IT-enabled transformation, an organisation restructure, a growth strategy, a process efficiency project, or a behavioural change initiative. If you are currently facing any of the following challenges, you might benefit from improved change management:

  • The change or business leaders are not aligned to the same future state vision or do not feel a shared responsibility for the business outcomes
  • Stakeholders are not ready to adopt the new ways of working, or are performing less effectively because of change-related distractions
  • You need to accelerate the realisation of benefits resulting from the change
  • Your organisation has a history of failed change programmes or projects, or a culture of resistance, or
  • You are involved in a critical programme or project that is high-profile and / or high-risk

Sia Partners UK can help you manage this change successfully to achieve the anticipated benefits.

 

 

 

What is the method?

Our Change Management toolkit provides a pragmatic and flexible framework, underpinned by guidelines, templates, and tools, for use on your change initiatives. Our clients and consultants use the toolkit on a daily basis, so you can trust that it works. One of the toolkit’s strengths is that it focuses on the quantitative measurement of change activities in their effectiveness to deliver business results. This helps you avoid a tick box mentality and change for changes sake and, more importantly, drive real business results.

What is the impact of doing it right?

Change management is of vital importance to any successful change. But, unfortunately, it is also one of the most overlooked and under-funded elements within programmes and projects. A comprehensive and effective change management framework will ensure that you:

  • Plan your change effectively to ensure it achieves what is set out in the business case
  • Prepare your business for implementation to mitigate the risk of things going wrong
  • Carefully manage your stakeholders and prepare individuals and teams for the change
  • Communicate in a way that both informs and engages your workforce
  • Reduce the risk of losing key individuals (along with their knowledge and experience) during the change journey, and
  • Realise your benefits and achieve improved performance as soon as possible
