From Change Managers
- Change Managers find it difficult to illustrate the direct links between change activities and business outcomes.
- Change management is about the people. The data and tooling can help change managers facilitate and inform conversations with leaders – but they’ll never replace the role.
- There is consensus that the biggest gap for change managers is a lack of frameworks and tools that support activities from post go-live to sustain phase.
- Building organisational change management capability outside of the change team, either among project managers or leaders, is an emerging trend driven by volume of change and the current economic climate.
- Creating a single view of change is time consuming, labour intensive and instantly out-of-date.
- Benefit realisation is number one priority, with new roles emerging in the space. These roles are directly accountable for tracking and delivering on business case value commitments.
- The size of technology-related change portfolios and investment is large and only continuing to grow.
- Projects are very good at front-loading investment in solution design and readiness change activities, with a huge imbalance in post go-live investment, which is where the adoption/people risk lies.
- Reliance on external consultants to deliver change poses significant risk of draining organisational capability.
