2 Below are some facts based on research conducted on managing the resistance to change: 500 executives said that resistance was the primary reason changes failed in their organizations. In a similar study, 80% of CIO's surveyed said that resistance was the main reason why technology projects failed - not lack of skills or resources, but that touchy-feely human reaction of resistance and a lack of engagement. –Resistance to change is only part of the problem... management's reaction to resistance also contributes to failure. If management resists or ignores employee resistance (or lack of engagement) - there is a higher propensity for failure. In the 2005 Best Practices Report put out by Procsi (a change management research firm), they identified the top five reasons front line employees resist change: –Employees were not aware of the underlying business need for the change –Lay-offs were announced or feared as part of the change –Employees were unsure if they had the needed skills for success in the future state –Individuals were comfortable with the current state; they wanted to maintain the personal rewards and sense of accomplishment and fulfillment provided by the status quo –Employees felt they were being required to do more with less, or do more for the same pay Bureau of Labor Statistics: –During times of major change, gossip goes from 19% of our day to 40% –We drop from being 60% efficient to 15% efficient –Organizations loose, on average, 2 hours of productivity per employee per day
4 Change Levers (What do we have to manage…). 1. Communication – Articulating vision & business case. Building an understanding of new capabilities and expectations; inviting dialogue and feedback. 2. Learning – Development of new, sustainable skills and capabilities. 3. Leadership & Ownership – Building the alignment of leaders and team members to own program outcomes. Business ownership for the “what and how” 4. Work Design & Talent Management - The architecture of teams; alignment of roles with new capabilities and expectations. Proactive alignment of talent management efforts to the changing business requirements. 5. Business Readiness & Measurement - Understanding organizational impacts, enabling readiness, measuring progress and risks. Help ensure benefits are realized and sustained. Transformation Agenda: “Ready” the environment for changes. Creates individual engagement & personal accountability for change. Partner with Business Units, PMO,HR, Corporate Communications, Finance, etc. to build conscious competence for leading change.
