What Is Holistic Change Management?

Change. It’s the one constant in our lives, and businesses are no exception. But designing an implementing succesful change initiatives can be tricky. Sure, you can implement a new software system including new AI-powered tools, but if your employees aren’t on board for whatever intrenal reason, it’s destined to fail.

This is where holistic change management comes in. It’s about taking a broad view, considering all the all the elements of your organization, to ensure a timely, smooth and successful transformation and change.

Why Holistic?

Traditional change management often focuses on a single element, like the technical aspects of a new system. But what about the people impacted? Holistic change management recognizes this human element. It considers alignment and possible misalignment as internal obstacles to desig and build a new externally and internally aligned AI-powered organizational design:

  • People & Skills: How will the change affect employees? Do they have the skills and support they need to adapt?
  • Business Processes: How will existing businesses need to change to accommodate the new way of doing things?
  • ICT-Systems: Does the existing technology infrastructure support the change, or are there upgrades or radical changes needed?
  • Culture: Does the company culture embrace change, or are there resistance points to address?
  • Structure: Is the current structure facilitating or hindering building the new AI-powereed company?
  • Business Strategy: how will the necesssary change strategy impact the existing business strategy?
  • Core Goals & Core Values: Do the core goals & core values of people in the company embrace change, or is this a critical element that has to be addressed?
