1.7 Best Practices

  • Confirm the accuracy of the organization structures based on the records maintained by first level managers and the customer Human Capital office
  • A Change Readiness Assessment involves the periodic assessment of how stakeholders are responding or engaging with the change. Note this is not a one-time assessment. If an organization’s leadership and management are driving the change in a modeled way, then they should see changes in readiness scores as the change process approaches
  • Industry standards and change management best practices provide multiple change models that can be harnessed based on preference or organizational needs (e.g., Prosci, Prosci’s ADKAR Change Model, Kotter, Lewin’s Change Model)
  • Change management’s end goal is shifting the organization from a state of resistance to acceptance. Utilize the Change Curve to better understand the stages of individual transition and organizational change. Top level leadership commitment and active support for the change effort drives the most impact when implementing any change
