Change management

Change management is necessary at some time in all organizations, so it is important for managers to hone their skills and familiarize themselves with change management theories.

Managers have to look at change management models and judge when change is needed and also adapt to changes outside of their organization. Therefore, change management is an essential skill for the modern manager.

However, one change management theory is that real and lasting change cannot be achieved without a radical change in the management itself.

The change manager should start by redefining the purposes of the organization in the context of fully analyzed external change. The next thing to look at is the internal changes that would be required if those purposes are to be accomplished. Then human resources must be dealt with, and that starts at the top.

You must ask whether the new purposes and internal reforms can be accepted and embraced by managers and staff. If they can’t, then more changes are necessary.
