How We Saved A Client 60% on IT Change Management CostsCASE STUDY
Let’s face it, “change management consulting” doesn’t have the greatest rep.
When I surveyed a group of engineers at a client recently, I heard the role being described as “useless,” “smoke and mirrors,” “harmful,” and even, “snake oil.”
Using Change Accelerator®, we were able to save our Fortune 100 high-tech client 60% on change management costs for a new HR onboarding software. Initially, they had planned to hire 2 additional change management FTEs to manage across multiple workstreams and regions being impacted by the change.
With our program, we were able to provide them a complete strategy and done-for-you tools. We worked across their project management office and change teams to reduce the workload significantly, requiring hiring only one extra part-time resource.
As planned, within 45 weeks, we deployed the new software globally across 7 regions, meeting and exceeding adoption rates and employee satisfaction goals.
What is Agile Change Management Accelerator®?
In short, it is an agile change management framework, toolkit, and customized coaching program. We provide companies a complete toolkit of adaptable templates, resources, and change management tools needed to run effective IT change management, in less than 1/2 the cost it normally requires.
But this is not a canned, one-size-fits-all “solution.” Since each company situation is unique, we work with you and your teams directly to implement the program effectively across your organization.
Our program is unique because it contains a comprehensive 360-Degree Organizational Assessment across people, processes, and technology. It uses best-in-class knowledge on how to make behavioral change successful and sustainable.
Beware of “Change Management Consulting”
The truth is, hiring “change management consultants” is a hit-or-miss. Finding the right person with the right skills for your specific situation is often a gamble, where you lose. That explains the alarming statistic that 70% of change initiatives fail.
Rather than wasting hours on developing change materials from scratch, our change management tools give you all of the templates, best practices, and resources you need. You can build your in-house change management capability successfully and efficiently, resulting in saving tons of money on IT change management costs.
