Business Readiness & Adoption

Home Strategic Consulting Business Readiness & Adoption

Large-scale initiatives that involve significant change often fail. The most prevalent reason for failure is not broken processes, implementation challenges, systems issues, or organizational structures, it is people resisting to adapt to new ways of working.

Change management should never exist in a vacuum. It is imperative that employees understand that the goal for any change is to improve the business in a meaningful way, while ensuring the certainty of desired business outcomes. The success of any initiative depends upon the readiness of the business to accept it. At St. Charles, we look beyond the traditional confines of change management and emphasize business readiness.

Our approach to business readiness is visible and practical, and most importantly, aligns to the strategic business objectives that facilitated the need for change. Our key Business Readiness elements include:

  • Linkage to broader initiatives to leverage organizational momentum
  • Use of role transitions to build understanding – what to “start, stop, and continue”
  • Enablement and performance through just-in-time information, training, toolkits, etc. with a focus on ensuring desired outcomes

We don’t go it alone. We know you have internal change teams and we are adept at collaborating with our client’s in-house expertise to use their approaches and tools to drive change. Additionally, we bring a proven methodology and wide range of tools that can be tailored to your needs and incorporated into the overall approach of the internal change team.

Effective change management is a process for ensuring the sustained success of a new initiative or endeavor.

It is infused into the process and results from a combination of strategic planning, project management, business process engineering, organizational assessment and design, communication, training and development, performance and process support, and program evaluation.

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.
