Organizational change by its nature is unpredictable, as every organization is made up of unique individuals and presents its own distinct set of challenges. While the past decade has seen increased acceptance of the importance of organizational change management (OCM), the type of OCM used is a key factor when it comes to results.

Making Change Successful
Even in an ideal corporate environment organizational change elicits groans from stakeholders and employees; it results in obstructive behavior as people struggle to adjust, regardless of the benefits for those individuals and the organization itself. This causes confusion and resistance, which ends in initiative delays and derailment.
Evidence shows that having a visible and active change sponsor is one of the biggest keys to avoiding change resistance, so our experts work with leadership and other key influencers through alignment and coaching. We work one-on-one with change sponsors, engaging people on all levels, to create solutions that are the right fit for that organization.
