Change Management
Joachim Bentz
Lecturer of Kyiv School of Economics, Managing Partner of ISD Group

Why do most change and transformation initiatives, independent of company size, fail? Multiple reasons cause this failure but in its heart, we often see insufficient leadership. Often newly implemented systems (such as a new CRM or ERP) or organizational structures/ procedures are not accepted by the workforce and dammed to fail. We often see resistance in an organization and employees developing defense routines, boycotting new systems by e.g. running their old systems in the background. Consequently, the change initiative fails.

Successful change management requires changes to employee’s behavior, so there is a significant focus on people, culture, and behaviors needed to:
- prepare the organization,
- demonstrate the change and its benefits,
- encourage buy-in while working with objections,
- embed new behavioral norms and expectations around the change initiative.
