Organization Change Management (OCM)

The Change Management (CM) Group, which is a part of the Enterprise Transformation Services, assists organizations to plan, lead & manage human side of implementing strategic change. We help our clients to create an environment of successful change.

We partner with clients to design and implement change strategies and actions that are proactive and real-time and facilitate quick realization of business objectives. We provide systematic architecture for leading and managing change based on scientific change management principles. We work to build the clients capabilities to lead and manage change in the short-term and sustain the change in the long-term.

Case for Change

A survey of Fortune 500 executives revealed that 67% ERP implementation did not realize its full process and systems benefits due to failure to address change Management issues.

As per Gartner - Enterprises that fail to prepare and support their workforces for major and continuing organizational change will miss business objectives by at least 30% and will experience turnover rates of at least 20% annually for their key knowledge and leadership workers.

Many other studies also have revealed this.

A very common theme among these failures is a lack of understanding of the power of the collective human system to obstruct the progress of initiatives. The result has been to reinforce fear, defensiveness, and cynicism among employees toward change efforts. Over the long haul, a failure of change means that business strategies are not accomplished; resistance to change increases and the organization's survival is threatened.

The success or failure of any change initiatives depends on not only the business demand, strategic decision of top management but on attitudes, values, perception, beliefs of the people and their active participation. In change process human aspects play a crucial role in ensuring the change really happen.

Our Change Management Track is very comprehensive. In Large Scale Change ERP Implementations such as SAP R/3, Oracle 11i, Outsourcing, Business Process Reengineering (BPR), Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A); it runs parallel to the Large Scale Change Implementation Track.

We generally recommend Change Management Interventions for Technology Solutions / Large Scale Change Implementation with initiatives spread across the project duration. The entire change management track is generally recommended in three clear phases:

  • Pre-Implementation
  • Implementation
  • Post-Implementation

“Our sales force recommended a list of implementation/migration partners, including HCL. After a round of interviews, we decided to hire HCL. We were working against a very tight timeline and a lot of unknowns. HCL was able to articulate a migration plan that not only fit our schedule but removed a lot of risks. HCL brought in a team of experts. We are very happy to have worked with HCL and would do it again.”
