The Monthly “Change Insight” Book Tuning: Change Management Logic & Methodology Aug. 2020

Predicting and preparing the next level of digitalization is an iterative learning and changing continuum.

Change is inevitable, organizational change has become a common practice within an organization, but too often changes are made as a reaction to outer impulses, crises, and demands. This is the bureaucracy’s way of meeting the challenges. 

A digital transformation is achieved via dynamic Strategy-Execution-Change life cycle management, though it is not all linear steps, but an iterative, ongoing, and up-going change continuum.

        Change Management Logic & Methodology 

Change Management Logic and Methodology Upon the increasing pace of changes, the reality is that there are a lot of things that can go wrong and it is not always easy to identify what is important. With rapid change and fierce competition, the organizations that have hit the heights of success in the digital world aren’t those that have determinedly followed the old models and ways of thinking; it’s those that adapt to the business dynamic, and have forged a new path to solve problems and conduct business transformation.

Improve Change Capacity by Taking Multidisciplinary Management Approach Digital transformation represents the next stage of organizational maturity which will improve how the enterprise works and interacts with its ecosystem and deals with the challenge of “VUCA” digital new normal. It requires accelerated digital mindsets and takes a multidisciplinary management approach to improve the change capacity of the business and unlock business performance.

Navigate Through Change in a Structural Way The effects of an increasingly digitized world are now reaching into every corner of organizations and varying aspects of our societies. In fact, the exponential growth of information and continuous disruptions throw the challenge for businesses across sectors to respond and adapt with faster speed. Going digital is more like a journey than a destination by navigating through changes in a structural way. Predicting and preparing the next level of digitalization is an iterative learning and changing continuum.

Can You Manage the “Shade of Gray” to Drive Progressive Change? In today’s “VUCA” –“Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, and Ambiguous” business environment, the rate of change has accelerated, indicating that business leaders must learn how to break through the industrial constraints and limitations, gain the great awareness of business ecosystem intricacies and systemic value of organizational processes and capacities, etc. The level of business resilience and maturity depends on how they can manage the "gray area" effectively and strike the right balance of business transaction and transformation.

Change Management Steering Instruments and Methodologies Change is the new normal with increasing pace. It is nevertheless true that change itself has become unpredictable and evolutionary. If you are not clear on why you are changing or If change is implemented with no clarity then you are doing a change just for change's sake Statistically, about 70% of change initiatives fail, rather, they fail to meet stakeholders’ expectations. Forward-looking organizations should have a set of changing steering instruments, systems, and structures in place prior to implementation in order to improve the change management success rate and build the differentiated business competencies.

Blogging is not about writing, but about thinking; it’s not just about WHAT to say, but about WHY to say, and HOW to say it. It reflects the color and shade of your thought patterns, and it indicates the peaks and curves of your thinking waves. Unlike pure entertainment, quality and professional content takes time for digesting, contemplation, and engaging, and therefore, it takes time to attract the "hungry minds" and the "deep souls." It’s the journey to amplify your voice, deepen your digital footprints, and match your way for human progression.
