Do you have the six top contributors to successful change in place?
The greatest contributors to change management success are outlined in the latest study by Prosci® - a global leader in change management research. Participants in Prosci’s® 2012 benchmarking report on best practices in change management identified the following factors as the greatest contributors to overall change management success:
- Active and visible executive sponsorship.
- Frequent and open communication about the change.
- A structured change management approach.
- Dedicated change management resources and funding.
- Employee engagement and participation.
- Engagement with and support from middle management.
Effective change management can make or break a project. Prosci’s® research has shown that, compared to those with poor change management, projects with excellent change management are:
- 79% more likely to meet or exceed their objectives;
- 55% more likely to be on schedule; and
- 31% more likely to be on or under budget.
With so much depending on change management competency, an understanding of what’s behind successful change is key. Prosci®’s Change Management Toolkit, developed through extensive research, helps business change leaders and managers of change ensure all the drivers of successful change are in place. Focusing on the people side of change, Prosci®’s methodology aligns the three components of sponsorship, project management and change management, minimising resistance as employees move from old ways of working to new.
