Change is Challenging – Change Management Doesn’t Have to Be
The Northridge Group’s State of Customer Experience 2023 research report reveals a surge in preference for online agent chat versus phone amongst 18-35-year-olds—the first time online chat has eclipsed phone!
Organizational change is not static, it is ever-evolving.
When effective change management and disciplines are not defined within the organization, the bottom line can suffer. Significant changes to operations (such as those impacting people, process and technology) are best handled with thoughtful change management strategies, carefully crafted communications and an approach of continuous improvement.
The Northridge Group offers well-tested strategies to prepare leaders to lead through the implementation of upcoming consequential changes. Our solutions include:
Initiative impact analysis
Assessment of the timeline for change
Project planning support
Appropriate action management – carefully crafted communications/messaging
PMO set up and support for implementation of change
Skill-building support for impacted staff
Development of a consistent approach for addressing continuous improvement within the organization
Intervention and/or course correction for unsuccessful change efforts
Our strategic approach to effective communication leads to successful change management.
We help clients master the art of consistent messaging to address changes within their organizations. Effective communication positively impacts change management processes. Improvements to technology, processes and behaviors are beneficial to organizations and changes often allow businesses to operate more efficiently. However, change is not always welcomed by the employees who are impacted.
Carefully crafted and expertly delivered messaging can ease the transition and ensure acceptance. Appropriate action management allows business leaders to reduce unnecessary stress and conflict and improve employee engagement throughout the change process.
The Northridge Group’s change management strategies ensure successful outcomes for our clients.
A well-implemented change management process yields many benefits to a business such as decreasing staff turnover and minimizing the impact of the changes on employees.
