Change Management

Many new systems and strategies fail before they have even been launched, due to poor change management procedures. Visions have lost steam in some organizations due to lack of ownership by staff. We all know that no ownership = no results and this is more evident when there is change involved since naturally most people do not embrace change easily. Even big organizations, that have years of experience, still fail at managing change effectively. Resources, including time, are wasted and the biggest challenge is that competitors will pick up the idea, implement it better and increase market share at the peril of the organization that would have tried first.


  • Create ownership at all levels within the organization before, during and after implementation of the change
  • Help manage expectations
  • Ensure that there is no unhealthy anxiety within the organization
  • Foster, cross functional team work for best results
