8th Critical Organisational Change Implementation Step - Execute Phase
Developing New Skills and Behaviours:
This step is about Developing New Skills and Behaviours by performing a gap analysis of existing skills and behaviours at the current state ‘a’. Training can then be provided to close gaps for employees, to ensure adoption of the change and alignment with the new way of working at the future state ‘B’.
“If you do not change employee behaviour, you will not get organisational change and performance improvement”
Business Benefits: Most change requires improved skills and/or behaviours, so employees and the organisation can operate at the new level of working to ensure adoption, improved performance and benefits realisation.
To evaluate existing skills and behaviours, identify skill and behaviour gaps, select available courses or design new courses to ensure employees operate effectively and efficiently in the new way of working. For your organisation to deliver a good service or manufacture good products, the employees must have the right skills and behaviours.
a2B Change Management Framework® (a2BCMF®)
The a2B Change Management Framework® (a2BCMF®) is a structured and disciplined approach to support organisations, leadership teams and individuals going through a change, the transition from the current ‘a’ state to the improved future ‘B’ state. The a2BCMF® has three phases and ten key process steps. Each phase provides change strategies, principles, analysis and tactics to move from one phase to the next.
The framework is based on over thirty years of international change experience and brings together leading practice in change, people and programme management. The structured programme approach, processes, techniques and tools focus on overcoming the failures of previous change by incorporating ten key steps and success elements for achieving organisational change. It supports strategic change implementation in terms of context, content and process. The framework is a comprehensive management model that allows executives, managers and change practitioners to successfully deliver and achieve organisational change. It requires a holistic approach and some steps can be performed simultaneously.
