WHAT IS IT?
When embarking on the road to embed a new organisational culture one of the key actions is to increase cooperation and communication amongst its many entities.
This requires human resources and an organisational wide mindset change. A change management process is required in order to align behaviour with the expected new culture as well as to develop change capabilities and tools within the organisation.
Detecon has long-standing experience in developing change management methodologies, tools and trainings as well as their implementation.
Challenges of Change Management
Transformation and change management projects often fail as the people underestimate the challenges that these projects entail. One of the key factors and at the same time one of the biggest hurdles is the attitude that needs to be changed.It is pointed out that people see the greatest challenges during the realisation of change projects in changing the people’s mindset.Attitude and culture, being factors of the emotional dimension, are the greatest challenges during a transformation. Whereas barriers created by technology and IT are only a small part of the challenges, they are often given an inordinate amount of attention during projects.
Challenges that Detecon approaches by using The GC Index are:
- Placing the right people into the right positions – A Solution by The GC Index could be to develop a common language to understand the impact of all employees and to organize them more effectively
- Aligning employees‘ individual capabilities with job requirements – A Solution by The GC Index could be to identify how employees can make a game-changing impact
- Aligning new colleagues with their team members – A Solution by The GC Index could be to facilitate the integration of the teams around the challenges. The teams need to keep talking to each other
Beyond the usage of the GC Index approach, Detecon identifies additional fields for cultural challenges:
- Combining human impact with digitalization and implementing the right technologies
- Fluid and agile structures to react fast to the increasing changes
- Lack of practices when it comes to digital change management / digital transformation
- Lack of digital skilled employees especially in the digital world may lead to technology barriers
