For a company to prosper, it must be willing to continually evolve. The more a company embraces change, the better its chances of success. Most business leaders understand this, but when the time comes for real change to be made, many fail to consider the effects of these adjustments on the company as a whole.
Change management comes in a countless variety of forms, and there is no single recipe for success, but effective communication is almost always key. It also helps if employees have the tools to continually manage change.
For this reason, many companies incorporate change management training as a mandatory part of employee development. Even with a trained workforce, the path forward isn’t always simple. A recent survey by Robert Half Management Resources found that 46% of top-level executives encountered serious obstacles in the execution phase of their change management efforts.
