Organizational Change Management (OCM) is often necessary for companies to minimize friction in their growth. Many organizations are starting to move from an unorganized project-to-project team design to a centralized continuous improvement strategy where constant change becomes the “new normal”. Change management drives the successful adoption and usage of change within the business, whether it be expanding the team or redefining roles, implementing new system(s), or optimizing the processes to become more efficient. The alignment that takes place during change management is important to build and manage current and future business effectiveness and long-term sustainability. When creating an OCM strategy, it’s important to understand key factors, such as employee sentiments, perceptions of effectiveness, and readiness for future-state, while having an open communication channel to discuss any concerns and issues.
