Change management

Many things can be positively impacted at the start of a project. That’s when successful change management begins.

Developing and introducing new processes, structures, and methods require changes to how employees usually do things. Through professional change management, employees are prepared for new circumstances and supported during the transition process. A holistic approach involving all key people is vital to successfully implemented change projects.

The typical weak spots and challenges in large change projects include:

  • People who will be responsible are not involved early enough
  • Insufficient analysis of stakeholders and lack of information
  • Weak project marketing
  • Lack of success early on to further motivate those involved 
  • Training for new processes, methods and IT too narrow in scope
  • Clinging to unrealistic plans
  • Delayed escalation of issues

    Solutions from 4flow

    4flow consulting manages the change process in organizations for the entire spectrum of supply chain consulting topics and is a driver of change. With a proven solution-finding approach, acceptance in the organization for the new processes can be created, thereby ensuring implementation.

    Our approach takes place in three phases:

    Milestones in change management
    Milestones in change management

    1. Raise awareness of the coming change
    During this phase, the team is put together. It typically consists of employees from the organization and consultants from 4flow consulting. Strategy and vision workshops allow the team to work out the plan for the objectives directly with those who are responsible for the processes in question.

     

     

    2. Create acceptance
    The new plan is then worked out in detail with those responsible for the process. Milestones of change and appropriate communication measures within the company are defined. The new processes and systems are tested in pilot areas and their effectiveness is measured. With an effective communication plan, the change is supported and spread throughout the organization.

    3. Embed changes effectively
    During the final phase, the implementation of the changes takes place. All employees receive thorough training, and are an active part of the change process. A KPI system is introduced. The early wins can then be tracked and communicated.

    Changes are supported in all project phases thanks to appropriate communication activities about the progress of the project. If required, coaching seminars for managers and employees can be offered.
