Change is constant

20 April 2009
Whatever your situation at work at the moment, change is bound to be part of it. In fact, it’s probably part of it all the time to a lesser or greater extent, which is why Alan Stevens’ advice about change management should come in handy at any time. In the latest issue of the magazine, he explains that a period of upheaval - when handled correctly - can bring benefits for your organisation. Stevens says the four key things to do are: point out how the change will benefit individuals or the organisation as a whole; be clear about what is changing; anticipate people drawing incorrect conclusions about the change; and make the change as easy as possible to accomplish. Have you got any further tips for other readers based on your experience of change?
