Change Management Tips
An article featured on smallbusiness.co.uk by Ben Lobel provides the top 5 things to consider to turn change in your organisation into an opportunity for future success.
All change within a business has an impact but managed correctly change can become an opportunity - if not, it can create problems. BDG's Change Consultant, Andy Swann, gave Ben his top 5 tips:
1. Put people first: when people thrive, organisations thrive too - keep in mind that people are the one variable that businesses can't do without.
2. Consider the impact: change could affect your leaders, your team or your customers. Understanding this will help to identify potential areas for extra attention in advance.
3. Give everyone ownership: people connect best when they feel part of the process - whether a company restructure or workplace redesign. Let your team in, ask their opinion and involve them.
4. Communicate: if everyone knows everything there are no nasty surprises at the end.
5. Think differently: don't manage change the way you believe businesses should - manage it with the personality of your own company. Remember it is all about creating a meaningful connection that leads to positive adoption.
These tips form the basis of a great change management programme and if you create your own around this framework your experience will be a positive one.
There are some amazing things you can do to implement change successfully - if you need ideas or support in your business change, contact Andy Swann at BDG.

New London Architecture (NLA) exhibited a major Insight Study as part of WRK/LDN which examined the changing nature of work in London and its impact on the future offices and spaces of the city.
The exhibition focused on the very best examples of how architecture is improving London’s working environment, including a case study of BDG's refurbishment project at Sea Containers - a relocation for Ogilvy Group UK and MEC.
BDG were fortunate to attend a private tour of the exhibition, hosted by Peter Murray, Chairman of NLA.
