Organisational Change Management (OCM) is a disciplined approach which focusses on how new technology and processes impact your people, and how they feel about it. In fact, it plays a major role in getting your people ‘over the line’ by making them central to your business transformation journey, rather than just being swept along in the slipstream.
There is a direct correlation between project failure and poor rates of adoption. However, when done well, OCM has a dramatic and positive impact on technology uptake and user engagement.
According to change management experts Prosci, a project with OCM applied has 6x more likelihood of meeting your objectives, is 5x more likely to stay on or ahead of schedule, and 2x more likely to stay on or under budget.
