“It’s far easier to act your way into a new way of thinking than to think your way into a new way of acting.”
Organizational change management is not simply a good idea, if one is interested in remaining competitive and efficiently operational in today’s global climate of change, it is essential. Successful change occurs when organizations focus on, define, and institutionalize change to reflect missions, visions, and organizational values. By effectively managing change in a world of constant disruption with demand for response and innovation, institutions can innovate and remain competitive to meet the needs and changing environment of the world around them.
Change can occur at many levels and can take shape using many tools and approaches. Whether focusing on people, process, policy, or technology, change is inevitable. By fostering and managing change strategically, we help organizations intentionally build strong foundations and implement the use of best practices and tools to navigate their most challenging enterprise, unit, program, and project-level change initiations.
TSI fosters Organizational Change Management (OCM) in a very applied manner. Based on extensive research and best practices in OCM and refined by hundreds of projects, TSI has developed an entire methodology and pragmatic approach. This approach helps organizations manage change effectively so that client teams experience project success with minimum disruption.
Not only do we implement OCM strategies for our clients and organizations, TSI provides detailed training and mentoring on OCM, measures change readiness at multiple levels, and constantly monitors the levers, both from an individual behavior perspective as well as from an overall or group dynamic. Since TSI’s approach looks at OCM in relation to other improvement efforts (such as a process or performance improvement project, or a technology strategy or program management project), we have the opportunity to interweave it in other tasks and activities. This multi-dimensional approach makes it real and reinforces strategies to “make change stick”. Ultimately, our approach engages the people side of change to help stimulate sustainable change and build sustainable, meaningful relationships surrounding change initiatives.
TSI has assisted a number of clients proactively (and at times, reactively) address their most difficult OCM challenges. These projects have ranged from:
Organizational Change Management Methodology
TSI’s organizational change management methodology is our customized approach to manage change. The methodology has had such great success that several of our clients have purchased and adopted the methodology across their own organizations.
As illustrated by the diagram below, TSI has an extensive set of tools that facilitate the management of change to dramatically improve a successful implementation of technology, process and people change. The approach follows four main, ongoing and cyclical phases including:
The approach is not a purely linear, therefore strategies for managing change enter and shift through the various phases continuously. As the approach cycle through the phases, it progresses through several levels from “getting started”, “digging deeper”, to “moving to transform”.
Due to the intellectual property TSI has invested in our methodology, we intentionally do not share additional OCM details on our site. Contact us to learn more about our unique approach.
