Preparing for Change

Posted by: Rod Kurtz on October 31, 2008

An essential part of preparing for change is examining your corporate culture to discover any impediments to change. Realize that some of your company’s traditions and practices may need to be revamped to meet new needs. Also keep talking about change so that employees think in terms of change and help make it happen. Next, make expectations clear. Key employees should know that embracing change is part of their responsibility. And monitor company procedures and systems to be sure they support change. Finally, plan ahead for the biggest change of all: your retirement or exit from the company and development of new leadership.
