Change Management Strategy
The Change Management Strategy is a tool that provides a high level overview of what is changing, including the scale and complexity of the change, as well as your approach to successfully managing the people-side of the implementation.
You should always develop a change strategy for each initiative and share it widely with your stakeholders and project partners. This ensures everyone is aligned and on the same page about the size of the change, key details of the change (including the reason for it), and how everyone should approach it.
Below is an example of the elements of the change strategy we use with our clients.
This section gives a brief overview of the strategy as well as a list of supporting documents (and sources of information)
Nature of the Change
This section goes into detail about what is changing, why, and how complex it will be. This is important for you to decide your approach
Change Management Approach
This final section describes how you will approach the change - e.g. will you roll it out in stages? use a pilot? or all at once in a big-bang?
