There is little gained from great business process improvement programs if the change management execution is poor. There are many circumstances in which change management can fail, from poor metrics, to poor motivation; from poor positioning to poor piloting. Change management is often perceived as a “soft” discipline whereas in fact, it is actually one of the most difficult. Done well, change management deploys a broad array of tools and skills, from capability building to hard metrics, from outbound communication to feedback loops.
Bevington Group embeds change management thinking at the start of all engagements. We engage with key decision makers and champions early in the design process, and draw on a great depth of experience to develop a detailed and attainable change management program. The Bevington approach is to create a tailored change strategy that is easy to understand, communicate and implement. Our approach encourages staff to adopt the changes as their own and make them an integral part of the organisation.
