Key change management trends

In the seminar, Mr. Brian listed 6 trends that he had observed across various industries and public institutions:

1. Managing multiple changes while delivering short-term results

Changes was seen as something with big impact and should not happen frequently, now it’s normal for the business to change and has a thought out plan to manage it. Leaders and their teams are tasked with leading and participating in multiple changes in order to achieve their annual objectives.

2. Organisational agility is the “Holy Grail” of effectiveness

Many organisations aren’t set up for flexibility. This has unknowingly lead to static thinking and rigid behaviour in the interest of consistency and efficiency.

Organisational agility is a mindset enabled by structures, roles, processes, technologies and behaviours. It can only be attained through adjustments to how people work.

3. Leaders are expected to play a greater role in change management

Leaders have always been expected to lead the change. What is changing is how “leadership” is defined. The “tell me what to say” style of management is rapidly declining; all successful leaders must be fully engaged and personally commitment.

4. Disruption is desired

Many leaders want to utilise the disruptions that changes brought in order to gain a better competitive advantage. It is more likely the case if you want to win against highly innovated competitors that offer higher-end products.

5. Behaviour-led culture is a primary enabler of performance

There is a transition from a process-focused approach to a behavioural one. The belief that changing behaviours is the way to change people’s mindsets is coming back into popularity. Cultural behavioural norms are being assessed and new ones are being considered.

6. Consistency through centralisation continues to be popular

Organisations are continuing to centralise their strategies, decision making and business processes to ensure the engagement, consistency, and efficiency. Power is shifting from business units to the central body to align groups and benchmark performance.
