Improving Change Management Outcomes
To establish a change management framework quickly and effectively, businesses, utilities and firms need a trusted partner with the right tools and resources to fully comprehend the magnitude of changes facing employees throughout the organization.
The Change Management Portfolio service will standardize your company’s change processes. Executives, managers and change practitioners work hand in glove with the 1898 & Co. team — learning new approaches and tools, developing strategies suitable for specific projects and teams, and training employees on new tools and systems.
The long-term goal of the Change Management Portfolio service is to build the necessary capacity to methodically manage change across the organization and understand the impacts of change on employees, clients and other engaged parties.
Organizational Change Readiness
Understanding the current state of an organization’s capacity to manage and execute people-centered projects effectively and efficiently is central to initiate the change journey. The Change Management Portfolio service builds on an organization’s current state before developing a strategic approach and tactical plan to foster resiliency, address organizational gaps and expand foundational change management knowledge.
Capacity Development and Training
Addressing gaps and identifying solutions requires a tailored approach. Managers and executives participating in the Change Management Portfolio service will receive highly customized trainings to establish and integrate foundational change management strategies throughout the organization. The suite of trainings includes Change Management 101, Project Management and Change, Sponsorship for Success, and Metrics that Matter.
Change Management Office
Despite unprecedented technological disruption, managing organizational change is a new domain for numerous businesses, utilities and public agencies. The Change Management Portfolio service leverages more than 60 years of experience in asset management, change management and leadership to help enterprises establish an effective Organizational Change Office (OCO). Utilizing a portfolio approach to change management, organizations can work smarter — focusing efforts on resource maximization and timing while improving outcomes and deliverables.
Change Plan Cloud-Based Platform
To effectively manage work across an enterprise, projects and tasks relating to change management should be understandable and accessible in a visual framework, such as a dashboard. These solutions make it easier to implement change in an organization by providing reports and metrics that management and executives can use for insight and strategy.
With a dynamic view of the right information, senior management can formulate data-driven decisions to establish project approvals, timelines, impacts and potential areas of risk.
