An improved management approach for more efficiency and lower costs
For a business to be successful for the long-term, it is necessary to take a strategic, adaptable approach to management, one in which all your employees can help your business achieve its goals and overcome obstacles of all sizes.
This often requires a company-wide shift in management perspective, as many businesses tend to restrict their strategic-thinking processes to senior staff. This is where change management comes in: evolving your management team’s approach and practices so that employees at all levels will think strategically to help your business function as one coordinated, seamless operation.
Effective change management involves breaking cycles of behaviour. It requires unity of purpose not only from business leaders but also from key managers and front-line staff. At Blueshark Consulting, we know that almost half of all change management programmes end in failure. This is because leaders:
- try to do too much at once
- don’t take their staff with them
- plan projects poorly or implement their strategy in piecemeal fashion
To avoid these pitfalls and give you the best chance of success, we use a six-step process that can implement change in any business.
