RCI will partner with you to offer a tailored selection of tools, methodologies, and solutions for any planned change initiative.
We strive to ensure that you develop the internal capabilities required to successfully manage change, now and in the future.
Use this diagnostic tool at the beginning of a change initiative to evaluate and learn where your organization stands in its ability to change. From this tool, we then develop a customized approach to change management based on your company's results to increase the likelihood of sustainable and impactful change.
Managers and supervisors are your boots on the ground during any change initiative. It is imperative that everyone is on the same page and communicating effectively with subordinates during any time of change or uncertainty. Training on various talking points regarding the initiative as well as communication strategies can be instrumental during a period of transition. Additionally, this training facilitates a portion of the change initiative and serves to get members of management on board and educated as to the reasons the change is occurring. If additional support is needed, RCI has skilled coaches to offer one-on-one or small group sessions.
Managing change is not a one-way street. Employee involvement is a necessary and critical part of managing change, and feedback from employees is a key element of the change management process. Analysis and corrective action based on this feedback provides a robust cycle for implementing change. RCI can facilitate employee feedback sessions, as well as develop corrective actions independently or alongside you.
Communication is a vital component to any change initiative - without a good communication plan your initiative will most likely fail. Our experts will work with you to develop a comprehensive communication plan and will assist in delivering this strategy throughout the organization.
Resistance from employees and managers is a normal human response to change. However, persistent resistance can threaten a project. The change management team needs to identify, understand, and manage the resistance that occurs throughout the organization successfully to have a favorable outcome. RCI can help with resistance management and provide the tools used by managers and executives with the support of the project team to manage employee resistance.
Over 70% of change initiatives fail. Transforming your organization and culture requires a broad perspective and holistic approach to addressing and sustaining change. In addition to analyzing strategy, structure, systems, processes, products, and technology, RCI focuses on the mindset, behaviors, and culture needed to drive and sustain change.
Change which is implemented at the unit or subunit level can be regarded as incremental change. Incremental changes are introduced or implemented gradually and are adaptive in nature. It is based on the assumption that these small changes will ultimately result in a large change and establish the basis for forming a much healthier and a robust system. It even offers an opportunity to an organization to learn from its very own experiences and create the adaptive mechanisms for meeting the ultimate organizational vision.
Organizational change initiatives can be frustrating and take a long time. Therefore, it is essential to recognize and celebrate milestones once they have been reached. Taking the time to celebrate is important because it acknowledges people’s hard work, boosts morale, keeps up the momentum, and neutralizes skepticism about the change effort. Celebrate your successes to recognize and reinforce the efforts of employees.
