To be able to successfully perform change management in organizations is possible by transforming the employees and the company from the old to the new in a harmonious way. Change management will result in best ways when carefully planned. As an institution, you can successfully adapt to change with the right strategy planned to protect or even increase internal productivity, motivation and efficiency.

What is Change Management?

As a systematic approach, change management includes mechanisms that enable you to deal with the change of objectives and processes in organizations and to control this change. The main purpose of change management is to create strategies for the organization and its employees to adapt to change.

In order to be successful in today's world where innovation is the goal, individuals and organizations may have to keep up with the pace of the world, or rather adopt to change. Institutions can make changes in their job roles, organizational structures or technologies used in the company in order to increase performance and take advantage of existing opportunities.

This technological change and development will help increase the business volume and speed of the company. However, such changes actually mean a change in the way of doing business. If employees do not learn and adopt a new way of working and fail personally, the enterprise's initiatives may also fail. With the right planned change management, employees can easily adapt to innovation without compromising their productivity.

What are the Stages of Change Management?

As a leader, you can make the right plans and advance in a systematic setup so that your employees internalize the change. Change management basically has four stages.

1. Reducing the Possible Shock: When change is introduced in a company or organisation, the first reaction is often shock. Only a few people understand why change is necessary and some may react to their managers with resistance to change. To overcome this situation, you can start by making sure that there is healthy communication within the organization in the first place. You can answer questions to resolve ambiguities and encourage employees on how to deal with change if they need it. As people begin to get information, the shock may begin to wear off.
2. Coping with Fear: Once the shock wears off, it can be replaced by fear. People instinctively ask, “What will happen to me now?” They may have negative thoughts. You can allow employees to express their feelings and concerns. Their reactions can be personal and sometimes emotional. In this case, you can respond to your employees concerns by listening to them sincerely,
3. Acceptance: After employees express their fears and get answers to their questions as a result of successful communication with the leaders, they can begin to calm down and accept the situation. At this point, you can train your employees on innovations and support them in the way what the changes will bring. You can emphasize that every change is actually a new opportunity and increase efficiency accordingly.
4. Change: Now that employees voiced their fears and concerns, understood the truth, tested their limits, they’re ready for change. They can now focus on the new rather than their former positions. By thinking about the benefits they can provide to the institution, they can turn the process into a positive one and see the positive effects of the change.

Organizational Change Management

In order to be successful in corporate change management, you can plan the change management stages in detail and meticulously determine the goals that will make your institution successful. You can create your enterprise change management plan to make use of new technologies, manage the costs of change, and eliminate the disruptive aspects and risks of it.

This way, you can respond more efficiently to the challenges that arise during change and avoid the risk of disrupting the routine in the functioning of the institution. Creating and executing an effective change management strategy can help you minimize resistance to change and reduce the stress and anxiety associated with change.
