​​Orga​nizational Change Management

Many businesses face challenges as they try to accelerate the pace of change, embarking on transformation initiatives that often demand that their people bridge frighteningly huge current-to-target state gaps.

At Edgewater Consulting, we understand that success is both an art and a science.  Transformation leaders need to address the following questions, which speak to the art of success:

  • Does your organization have a framework in place to foster change (communication, collaboration tools; a training framework)?
  • Is there an agreed-upon process for facilitating alignment among stakeholders with different needs?
  • What is the state of employee engagement at your company? Who is burned out, checked out, counting down the clock to retirement? And who is revved up and raring to go?
  • Do you have realistic expectations of the business input required to support a technology-driven transformation? Do you have a backfill strategy?
  • Have you defined success in business terms, or are you just eager to “put in a new system?”

When considering anything unprecedented or record breaking, don’t put all your faith in science—and don’t devalue the many human factors that are very much a part of the art of success.
