Organizational Change Management
Organisations need to recognise that change is the only constant to grow and thrive in today’s rapidly changing world. We at S&K recognise this phenomenon and approach change management from an employee and organisational perspective. We work in collaboration with our clients to develop a framework, strategy, plan, assist with the implementation and also measure its effectiveness at regular intervals. We help prevent the risk of the proposed change being ineffective in reaching the expected outcome.
Change has a profound impact on business operations and normalcy returns only after significant disruption to the way work was done. We encourage and support organisation’s leadership to craft strategies that embed change through effective communication of the benefits and value add that these interventions will bring to the business. We always promote business driven and people focused change programs to deliver a successful transition with minimum stress and maximum talent retention.
We establish success metrics and work with our clients throughout the execution stage. To drive adoption and enhance productivity, while aligning to your business objectives, we offer services in developmental, transitional, and transformational organizational changes. Whether the need for change is a result of broader economic or technological imperatives or aiming to transform Company culture, we adopt our approach based on the triggers, drivers and tracers of change.

Our Service Inclusions
Change Management Framework & Plan
We work in partnership with our clients to establish a bespoke framework that considers the organisation and employee perspectives. We anticipate areas of resistance and suggest interventions to embed the change. From conception through to implementation, we ensure the framework accounts for the complete change journey.
We identify primary, key and critical stakeholders and their change receptiveness. They are critical to the effectiveness and success of the change as through their support and advocacy, probability of success increases. To facilitate this, we develop a stakeholder management and engagement plan and work with each stakeholder throughout the duration of the change implementation.
We assess the organisation readiness for change and identify risk factors that may negatively impact the business and people during the transition. This is done primarily to shape the key areas of change management strategy and plan. We conduct multiple assessments to understand organisation’s change legacy, cultural maturity and the impact throughout the lifecycle of the change implementation.
A key contributor to successful change is executive sponsorship and communication. We work closely with organisation’s leadership to understand their communication style and create compelling messaging or getting the sentiment and the change initiatives across. We provide tactics and tools to senior leadership to be visible in leading strategic changes.
We create communication packs that aid in coming to terms with the new ‘ask’ from the organisation while focusing on their regular roles. We focus on clarifying outcomes while answering burning questions on the “why now´, “how will this impact me” and provide key signals to make sense of the anticipated “new normal” in work life of employees.
Change Management Implementation Support
We can serve as the facilitator of change and manage the people side of the change implementation. We assist companies through this process to ensure that they transition in an effective and efficient manner while ensuring key talent is retained.
Training & Performance Support
A critical factor for employees, line managers and stakeholders to get a concrete understanding of how the anticipated change will impact their role and institute the change is through training. Helping your employees move with agility through the ever-changing landscape of business is an important challenge and change management training for leaders can help them better manage transitions.
We develop learning toolkits that help them move with agility through the change and incorporate the change management principles into the planning and implementation of the initiative.
