Most situations offer opportunities, and changes invariably create new ones.
When we are the ones driving the change, we make sure we know and communicate the reasons for changes to all involved and/or affected. We clearly communicate the time-frame for the project, as well as advertise how much benefit will be gained from the initiative. We are clear about eventual downsides as well, trust is key to get people onboard.
We need to be ready – agile – to adapt plans to the company needs and market changes. We seek support and adoption to the new processes and keep everyone motivated and moving along with the project.
