Tools for successful change management

change management

The emergence of new technologies, strategic reorientation, implementation of new processes, management of disruptive and ambitious projects… Change management is an essential passage that still poses a major challenge in terms of agility and management today. By deploying and promoting the adoption of key and suitable tools, you encourage employee buy-in and facilitate a smooth transition. Discover some of these key tools, designed to harmoniously orchestrate change activities.

Change management: an essential asset

The global pandemic has profoundly altered the relationship some employees have with their work and their company. For instance, Gartner’s 2016 “Workforce Change” report showed that 74% of employees were keen to support their company’s organizational changes. This figure drastically dropped to 38% in 2022. This paradigm shift poses a real HR challenge in terms of management, long-term employee retention, and recruitment.

At the same time, there is a rapid and explosive deployment of new technologies such as artificial intelligence, Big Data, the Internet of Things (IoT), automation and robotization, and the digital twin. These technologies demand great agility from companies across all sectors. This tension makes change management indispensable and, while it requires the implementation of a real strategy to succeed, it can be facilitated and accelerated by setting up internal tools that will ease the support and digital adoption of employees as well as the planning of innovative and ambitious projects.
