Change Management for Digital Transformation.

Change management is crucial in digital transformation; it goes beyond just deploying new technology. It’s critical to focus on corporate culture, engaging people, and strategically contextualizing the use of new tools. True success is achieved by shifting the team’s mindset and work practices. Managing change means putting people at the forefront, addressing resistance, and promoting training and support. Change management serves as the bridge between humans and technology.

How to manage change management?

Addressing change management challenges requires a strategic and inclusive approach. By fostering clear communication, direct involvement, ownership, and immersive processes, organizations can navigate the complexities of change more effectively. Does it seem like a given? No, don’t take it for granted, quite the opposite! Did you know that 68% of failures in digitalization processes (source: Gartner) are due to the lack of an internal change management process? The temptation to think that technology can address human-related issues is one of the greatest risks in digital transformation projects. To overcome all of this, we have identified 4 pillars that cannot be ignored.

Enhance Communication with All Stakeholders

Clear and continuous communication is essential. It’s important to articulate the reasons behind the change, the expected benefits, and how it will affect each stakeholder. This transparency helps in building trust and reducing resistance.

Engage Directly Through Co-Design Workshops

Create platforms for direct engagement, such as co-design workshops, where different parts of the organization, departments, and silos can interact. This allows for diverse perspectives to be heard and incorporated into the planning and implementation phases, fostering a sense of collective purpose.

Empower Solutions with Ownership

Recognizing and rewarding contributions is vital for cultivating a new mindset. When individuals or teams feel a sense of ownership over the solutions, their commitment to the change process intensifies. Acknowledgement and appreciation of their efforts encourage a more engaged and proactive stance towards the transformation.

Implement Live Processes

Beyond theoretical discussions, live processes like team-building events or think tanks can energize the change process. These activities provide real-life contexts for stakeholders to experience the change, understand its implications, and contribute creatively to overcoming challenges. Such immersive experiences help bridge the gap between theory and practice, making the change more tangible and meaningful.
