Change management 'requires company-wide engagement'

9 May 2011

Companies that are seeking to achieve maximum benefit from their change management initiatives have been advised of the need to ensure full engagement with the programme across all corporate levels.

Mario Fonseka, corporate training expert and a member of the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants, stated that a key objective of change management is to minimise resistance to transformative initiatives.

This can be accomplished by ensuring a clear and compelling vision for change is communicated and explained in full to members of the organisation, who should be shown the benefits of the programme, he told Asian news publication the Daily Mirror.

Projects should be given visible leadership from an executive level, while feedback and active participation is to be encouraged and acted upon.

"This will help create a continuous engagement of one's employees and will help in gaining their continued commitment," Mr Fonseka explained.

Last week, Catherine Smithson, managing director at consultancy firm Being Human, told the International Business Times that this process can be facilitated by deploying change management staff in human resources departments.
