The most common mistakes in Change Management

Change is never the easiest thing to do. Thanks to our long experience in change management and the various projects we have carried out with our clients, we have put together the most common mistakes in a change process so that you can avoid them.

The 5 Phases of Change Management

Today, digital skills are vital for almost all jobs in modern economies. digital technology is not simply influencing how we go about our lives – it is transforming traditional structures, methods and assumptions about how we communicate, learn, work and live.
In the face of such transformation, the reality is that 44% of Europeans still do not have basic digital skills while 79% of Europeans go online regularly (at least once per week) and all projections are that a majority of forms of work will require digital skills in the near future. To remedy this situation, developing the digital skills of the EU workforce is essential; and to take up this challenge, the European Union created 2 different frameworks that can be used to assess and develop digital and entrepreneurial skills: the “DigComp” and the “Entrecomp” frameworks.

CHANGEx the learning platform dedicated to Change Management will soon be available in English

After the launch of the French version in mid-March 2021, this summer we will present a new release of our learning platform, CHANGEx, this time in English. This constitutes an important new step for the online learning platform, as English speakers will now be able to benefit from the same solid theoretical background and practical tools as the platform’s first users.

Design thinking – just a buzz word or an opportunity for everyone?

The “design thinking” methodology is not new – but in recent years it has made its way into the most diverse business domains. One of the reasons for its success is that it clearly focuses on the end user. In an iterative process, assumptions are continuously questioned in order to gradually approach the “right” solution. This process is usually divided into six phases; in the following article we will go into more detail about the change resistances you may encounter.

The 5 roles of internal communication in a change management context

Role n°1 of Internal Communication: not to make the project fail – Still too many of our clients contact us just a few weeks before the launch of a project that will structure their company. This is the nature of this type of project, which is so demanding and multifaceted: often the technical side takes precedence over the human side. Let’s do something to change McKinsey’s figure, which estimates a 70% failure rate for company transformation objectives. And internal communication is a success factor that must be used to this end.

Has Agile failed?

Companies often refer to Agile as a way of responding more accurately to customer needs, as a means of working more transparently whilst empowering employees to assume further responsibility for their actions. Whereas the advantages that come along with an agile approach may seem promising, numerous companies fail to implement it as a valuable way of working.

How to communicate the need for Change and boost your Change project

It is a truism to say that the rule for organisations is to change continuously. It is also well known that resistance to change is regularly observed, causing most change efforts to fail. Even when the need for change is apparently straightforward, people may resist for various reasons. Therefore, this article will highlight aspects that can help change leaders to effectively communicate the need for change and mobilise their employees to make change happen.

Change – An Opportunity to Thrive

“The 33-year average tenure of companies on the S&P 500 in 1964 narrowed to 24 years by 2016 and is forecast to shrink to just 12 years by 2027.”
This is one of the outcomes of a recent study on industry change, mergers and acquisition activities and disruptive start-ups, raising questions around what change management actually means.
