The biggest roadblocks to a successful implementation of change
One of the biggest roadblocks to a successful implementation of change in a business is getting the people “in the trenches” to not only understand what is coming but also to agree with what’s happening.
Traditional change management attempts have involved a one way top-down approach in which management informs the employees of their strategy and they are left to implement the changes.
Without a well thought out communication plan, this left little room for a conversation on the issues surrounding implementation or ways to improve the process.
Organizational change management through social media strategies
Organizing for change through social technologies
When used as systematic part of business change management, social media initiatives can help break down the barriers that the traditional top-down forms of communication built.
Social media initiatives can provide what previous change management strategies have neglected or implemented poorly – a sense of ownership among employees, as well as a spirit of genuine collaboration and community.
Tools such as blogs and online forums can greatly reduce the time it takes to gain interest and acceptance among the employees.
Social media is an important addition
Social media is an important addition to a traditional change management program, one that can dramatically increase the acceptance of change and advance an organization more predictably toward its business goals.
Collaboration and social media tools can reduce the time an organization needs to navigate change programs and deliver a better change experience from the employee’s perspective. Carefully managed, social media and collaboration tools provide a powerful platform that can help companies successfully manage change.
