1. Change Management: WHY?
1.1 In a world of change…
In today’s working environments, change is the only constant! In order for world class organizations to survive, they have to be flexible. Organizational change – at any level – is necessary to answer to global market competition, regulatory changes, social cultural shifts, reshaping of the business philosophy and rapid changing technology.
However, an organization has to be well aware that the management’s attitude towards the change will fundamentally differ from that of the employees. The management needs the results of the change, while the employees are wondering “What will this change mean to me?”
That is why you need change management: to reconcile management and employees motivation, to get everyone on the same wavelength!
Teams that use Change Management techniques have:
Reduced turnover and reduced loss of valued employees
Accelerated the implementation of the change
Reduced productivity loss and employee resistance
1.2 Why Nanjgel Solution’s change programs?
Nanjgel Solution change programs are well aware that employee resistance is the major reason why implementing changes fail. A lot of attention for this pitfall is thus required. The scheme below shows the method we’ve developed to tackle this resistance to change:

But getting everyone on the same wavelength and tackling the resistance to change are not the only reason for change management. In our organization, teams are becoming increasingly important. They exist in different forms. Technology and geography lead to 'virtual teams' that might never physically meet. Projects require rapid formation of teams for a short term activity, and increasingly team working occurs across departments.
Have you already asked yourself the question ‘how will we go about it?’ How do we tackle all these changes? “If you keep on doing what you always did, you'll keep on getting what you always got!”
Whether your objective is to get to know each other better, find solutions for difficult topics or work on your strategy, you will achieve much more if you use Change Management techniques.
For more than 12 years now, we have been studying the ever changing working environment of big companies. An elaborate and tailor made toolkit with change management techniques is the result of this. We are your expert partner in change!
2. Change Management: WHAT?
Change management is the process, tools, and techniques to manage the people-side of business change to achieve the desired business outcome and to realize that business change effectively within the social infrastructure of the workplace."
