“Human behaviour is the most underrated element in workplace, social and environmental change”
Leadership of Change®
Change Management Body of Knowledge (CMBoK) Volume 6:
Behaviour change is a fundamental element and key success factor of employee and organisational change adoption. It is about facilitating and enabling the smooth transition of the organisation and employees from the current state ‘a’ to the future improved state ‘B’. Without full employee behaviour change, the organisation is unlikely to improve operating performance, achieve the targeted benefits or return on investment (ROI). The organisation’s investment will be lost, as will customers who expect continually improving products and services.
Behaviour change is something the change team, leaders and sponsor need to consider well before the start of training or before the change starts to be implemented. It must be a serious consideration at the early stage of change planning (a2BCMF® Step 1 - Change Definition). The leaders of the organisation need to consider employee behaviour change as part of the leadership alignment process. The leaders and sponsor need to ensure the employees are prepared for the new behaviours with the right motivation to adopt the new way of working and sustain the change.
