A Blueprint For Change
Whether your project requires one consultant or ten, HR Transformations provides the proven talent with the skillset, tools and follow-through practices you need to achieve the change you want. We take a structured and practical approach to managing change projects such as business model, process or technology changes, workforce reductions or high growth, operational or structural changes, and more. Below are highlights of the change management services we offer.
VISION AND MEASURES FOR CHANGE
“If you build it, they will come.” A compelling vision of the future can motivate and inspire others by helping people understand the benefits of change — both for themselves and for your organization. We work with you to create a collaborative organizational change process among the right people in your organization, so that each person can clearly articulate the need for change and adoption measures, as well as describe what it will look like when the organization gets to where it needs to go.
CHANGE READINESS AND IMPACT ASSESSMENTS
Suppose the key decision makers all agree that organizational change is necessary. But how will individuals respond? Where might you find a reluctance to change and how can you minimize it? Anticipating reactions to an upcoming change provides critical insight into potential barriers. A change readiness assessment enables your organization to anticipate challenges to change and create strategies to manage or avoid challenges altogether. Our customizable approach to assessing and planning for change means we’re prepared to help whenever you’re ready to get started.
LEADERSHIP AND SPONSORSHIP ACTIVIATION, PLANNING AND COACHING
Leaders often need to quickly develop new and sophisticated skills when conducting business, structural and cultural changes. Only individual coaching can provide customized skill development within a tight timeframe. When it comes to change leadership, coaching provides a safe, objective place where leaders can explore ideas, vent their frustrations and push forward to maintain your project’s momentum.
“Form follows function.” This statement is just as true for organizations as for architecture. Organizational change often exposes the need to change tasks, processes, roles and structure. We collaborate with you to ensure that these elements are all in synch and complementary. Together we help you create a smart, functional design that works across your organization.
STAKEHOLDER MANAGEMENT AND CHANGE COMMUNICATION
Behind every change is a story. How you tell it can make or break your organizational change project. We help you get your story across through clear messages designed to reduce resistance and build buy-in. Whether you’re creating specific stakeholder management plans, an overall communication strategy or writing an FAQ, we have the expertise to tell your story in language that engages and motivates employees, managers, customers and other critical stakeholders.
Is your change project being derailed by a knowledge gap? Often organizational change requires employees to master new information and skills in order to perform their roles effectively. Our training programs are designed to bridge the knowledge gap by designing a training strategy, a training plan and a curriculum that creates new areas of competence in your employees.
Change often surfaces the need for a transfer of knowledge — shifting specialized knowledge or skills from one part of the organization to another. We help you identify the best way to transfer critical knowledge so that your organization can sustain the change into the future.
PROJECT TEAM EFFECTIVENESS
How do you keep project teams and steering committees working at peak performance through all phases of the change project? Success lies with your change leadership team, subject matter experts and senior sponsors all working together at a fast, efficient pace, yet not burning out. We help you to identify and support team effectiveness and avoid potential problems along the way.
After all is said and done, organizations want results. But how do you measure them? How do you determine if your change project has achieved its objectives? Using interviews, focus groups and materials review, we help you measure your project’s success. Most importantly, our assessment process will reveal any further adoption actions you may need to take in order to sustain the change.
