The Value of Change Management
Change is inevitable. It’s going to happen. Managing change enables businesses to transform profits by transforming the mindset of business owners and employees from that of victimization to one of empowerment. Quite simply, managing the change that happens to a business is the simplest strategic step to take. Change can be “managed” by being strategic, deciding what changes to make and how to make them within the existing organizational structure. What is special about taking a proactive, empowered approach to managing change is that change is done successfully. A successful change can be defined by the value it creates for the organization. Change management creates value by “addressing the people side of change” as businesses adjust to new organizational norms created by making decisions (Creasy, 2017).
