Enterprise Change Management (ECM) is the practice of building your organization’s change capacity and capability – your muscles — so you can proactively enable change for competitive advantage.
Unfortunately, few leaders responsible for managing change come equipped with everything they need to lead their organizations through change consistently at the enterprise level.
Your leaders face the challenge of creating and implementing the governance needed for transformation to take hold and succeed. They also must procure the right resources to manage change, whether technological tools or outside help. Finally, they must have their fingers on the organization’s pulse to know if employees are experiencing “change saturation.”
In other words, leaders have a lot of work to do to promote change as a capability, not a liability, within your organization. Building an ECM capability can help.
Enterprise Change Management for the Future
A good ECM program begins with a commitment to build your change capability not only for one project but also across multiple projects and even across the enterprise. It requires you to think through your methodology and tools, training approach, and integration with program and project management. It may demand greater commitment to process improvement or operational excellence.
The bottom line: ECM is work. But just like the work you do to build any muscle, building your change muscle has benefits. Happier employees. Better processes. Greater consistency. No more re-creating the wheel for every new project.
After all, in a world of evolving hybrid work models and increasing dependence on automation, ignorance of ECM and sound change management principles is not an option. The only option is to keep building your organization’s change muscle.
Our goal is to help you build a comprehensive roadmap for developing your enterprise change management capability and then act as your guide and partner on your journey to execute your plan.
