TIGO Self-Organization Practice: Change Management Workflow
Most managers underestimate how hard it is can be for employees to make even small changes to work habits. As a consequence they often lack patience, which sometimes results in resistance and possibly conflicts. Special attention should be paid to transition management as the change for the employees who will be outsourced is much greater than for the rest of the organisation.
There are many reasons why some change management projects fail in service outsourcing. Research, case studies and our own interviews point to the following
eight reasons as the most common why change programmes fail. They are in random order:
- Lack of formal change management processes.
- Poor integration with project management.
- Poor support from middle managers.
- Low priority for change management at senior level.
- No co-operation between customer and service provider.
- Change saturation.
- Poor transition between the two companies.
- Resistance from employees.
Service outsourcing creates many changes. For the employees who will be outsourced the changes are significant but also for the rest of the organisation service outsourcing will lead to many changes. This may lead to disruptions and resistance and possibly to project failure. A solid change management programme will steer the company safely through these changes.
