The Change Management Toolkit
The information and resources on this page are for anyone involved in change − especially those leading and managing change initiatives on any scale. They are presented as a series of steps, but change isn’t always linear or predictable, so the resources are really an aid to disciplined thinking rather than a set of instructions.
The change management toolkit sets out the things you will need to consider at all stages of a change process. It is presented as a whole or as bite-sized sections for each stage. Whether you are rearranging a team office or restructuring an organisation, you will need to think through each of these stages.
The Change Management Toolkit therefore covers:
- introduction to managing change: the principles and key things to consider
- why change? Why is change necessary? Starting to analyse the situation and options
- reasons and stakeholders: developing the rationale and engaging the people who will be affected and who will make it happen
- vision and communication: do we all understand what is happening and why?
- the plan: figuring out the practical steps that will have to be taken, and assigning clear roles and responsibilities
- how people experience change: the absolute most important factor: people experience change in different ways, and many will need help through the transition.
The practical steps that enable change are frequently arranged as projects.
