Why change management is the cornerstone of organisational transformation

Oliver Bradley our consultant managing the role

In the modern world of business, change management plays an important role in delivering results and ensuring employees are successful. With rapid development in technology and new digital solutions, it’s all the more important that businesses know how to adapt their processes and use change management methods to pave the way for organisational transformation. 

Effective change management is crucial for the growth of any business. It’s essential for achieving long-lasting success and navigating through the “new normal”. Now’s the time for business leaders to assess existing models and evaluate what needs to be changed to keep moving their companies forward. We’re exploring some of the key areas of change management and why they’re so important for business transformation.

The Employee Experience


 Companies that want to endure must be skilled at organisational transformation. Effective change management remains integral to successful business transformation. While change management covers a broad range of processes, it’s always focused on the people. Change management involves maintaining a constant workflow while communicating seamlessly with employees. Thus, enabling them to remain motivated during the introduction of new tools and technology. Transformation in the workplace is vital for realising growth, and change management has a significant impact on employee engagement. Managing successful periods of change can increase employee morale and drive positive team-building. However, during this process of change, leaders must understand how to change their employees’ mindsets to ensure everyone is moving in the same direction.

Improving performance


The change management process is about positioning a business so that it can meet the challenges of constant change in a competitive environment. It’s imperative for staying relevant. Change management is intrinsic to business transformation, and a key advantage is that it has a positive and direct impact on performance. Change management encourages innovation and increases productivity, which in turn, leads to stronger business performance. If companies want to succeed long-term, leaders need to understand the importance of continuous improvement, upskilling and flexibility in the face of uncertainty. 

As change management strategies progress from defining the vision to target setting, every level of the company is affected, including employee performance. By implementing new methods, leaders can improve processes and the overall performance of their teams. "

Leadership and culture

Leadership and culture have a massive impact on organisational transformation. Modern leaders have a growth mindset and are able to think globally, developing full-fledged strategies that will serve the company for years to come. Therefore, leaders have a fundamental role to play in managing change. When businesses grow and change, this can often lead to much stronger leadership as managers will have to prepare for the responsibility, inspire their team and take on new initiatives. 

Right now, there are few skills more important than a leader’s ability to manage change and adopt new practices. However, it’s worth mentioning that despite the importance of change management, many organisations fail when launching new change initiatives – which is often the result of poor leadership and communication. That’s why it’s all the more important for leaders to be able to articulate their vision to employees to pave the way for concrete, systematic change.
