Change is not only inevitable, but also must be initiated.
To train in change management, consider the intensive change management training course from pdtraining in Auckland.
Change symbolises both deterioration and progress. To achieve progress, changes must be planned, initiated and managed. Organisations that predict changes and prepare to take advantage of them are able to record higher growth than others, sustain themselves in difficult times, and maintain smooth functioning of processes at all times.
Professional Development Training for Unexpected Changes
An organisation needs to be prepared for unexpected changes that may be favourable or unfavourable. Favourable changes need to be used to maximise the benefits they can provide to the company. Unfavourable changes, on the other hand, can be tackled through professional training, effective management and backup strategies.
Training in change management prepares an organisation for sudden, unexpected changes. It includes:
- Preparing a change management strategy
- Identifying support systems that can be used in case of a sudden change
- Identifying communication channels that may be used for a sudden change
- Predicting effects of change
An organisation that is prepared for both predictable and unpredictable changes gains an edge over the competition and steadily cruises through rough waters.
Adjusting to Changes through Professional Development Training
It is important to remember that nothing is permanent. Organisations that adjust to changes the fastest, survive the longest. Accepting changes, preparing for them and adjusting a work culture accordingly is necessary for the growth and sustenance of an organization.
An example of a sea change that has affected many organisations around the world is globalisation. Globalisation and technological developments have impacted the way we work and interact. It has brought in changes in communication, work environment, business strategies, salaries, infrastructure and more.
Globalisation has also given rise to multiculturalism. To adapt to this new change, organisations are training their workforce in workplace diversity, and how to communicate with people of different cultures. Organisations that deal with employees, customers or business partners from different countries need to professionally train their employees in communicating with people of different cultures. Such changes can be adjusted to through professional training.
Change must not be resisted or feared, it must be expected and used for achieving positive growth. Organisations that have an effective change management system keep evolving, using new methods to not only adjust to changes, but to bring them about. Six Sigma was developed by Motorola in 1986 and today organisations all around the world are using the methodologies of Six Sigma for process improvement. Organisations that initiate change, adjust to it and are prepared for it are the ones that grow, influence and lead.
