Change Management is the discipline that guides how we prepare, equip and support individuals to successfully adopt change in order to drive organizational success and outcomes.
What is the Value?
Change Management drives project benefit realization and is necessary whenever a project’s results and outcomes are dependent on individuals adopting and using a solution.
Including Change Management in your initiatives:
- Increases probability of project success – 6x more likely to meet or exceed expectations.
- Enables the project team to advance from current to future state with minimal productivity loss, employee dissatisfaction, and resistance.
- Addresses the human factors that can impact your return on investment – the speed of adoption, ultimate utilization and proficiency.
- Builds change competency into the organization.
Consultation: OBT’s change professionals utilize Prosci® research, along with years of real-world experience, to help organizations move changes forward effectively. OBT supports change sponsors and project teams in achieving change objectives by partnering to:
- Share best practices for managing change.
- Develop strategic recommendations, including timelines and potential action steps around communication, sponsorship, training, coaching, and managing resistance.
- Empower managers and supervisors to guide each employee’s individual journey through change.
Facilitation: OBT’s change management consultants offer facilitation and training throughout the year, as well as by request. Work with one of our change professionals to design a custom workshop for your team, or leverage our existing workshops or training offerings.
Please visit our Facilitation and Training page for more information.
Implementation and Integration: Are you looking for something more than consultation? Consider bringing an OBT change professional into your project team. An embedded change manager can help draft communications, serve as a resource to keep sponsors on track, and integrate change management activities into your project plan.
