Theoretical Framework
What is Change Management?
Change management is an approach to shifting/transitioning individuals, teams, and organizations from a current state to a desired future state
Helping change stakeholders to accept and embrace changes
Change usually involves three factors; people, processes and culture

Why is change important to organizations?
“The Only Thing That Is Constant Is Change -” Heraclitus
We live in world that is constantly changing
Technological improvement, which is equal to change
A 2007 McKinsey study 70% reported that innovation was one of their companies’ top 3 drivers of growth

How should managers communicate change to employees?
John Kotter his 8 step change process
Clear and concise about the change
Emphasize on how important it is to change, highlight the advantages of the change against the disadvantages. Remove all obstacles hampering the progress of change, create short term wins and make the change in the end stick.

Introduction to Change Management Models
Various models to facilitate change. Such as: ADKAR, Change Accelerated Process model (CAPM), and Kaizen
Widely used in the field of change management
Each step is then seen as an individual element
A “new model” is put together using only the necessary steps to conduct the specific change necessary

Kotter’s 8 Step Change Management Model
Step 1: Create Urgency
Step 2: Form a Powerful Coalition
Step 3: Create a Vision for Change
Step 4: Communicate the Vision
Step 5: Remove Obstacles
Step 6: Create Short-term Wins
Step 7: Build on the Change
Step 8: Anchor the Changes in Corporate Culture

ADKAR – Aware Desire Knowledge Ability Reinforcement
Focus activities on specific business results
The model was initially used as a tool for determining if change management activities like communications and training were having the desired results during organizational change
ADKAR emphasizes that successful organizational change occurs only when each person is able to transition successfully
The ADKAR model has the ability to identify why changes are not working and help you take the necessary steps to make the change successful
As a manager, you can use this model to identify gaps in your change management process and to provide effective coaching for your employees

Awareness of the need for change
Desire to participate in and support the change
Knowledge on how to change
Action to implement required skills and behaviors
Reinforcement to sustain the change

CAPM - Change Acceleration Process Model
Leading Change
Creating A Shared Need
Shaping a Vision
Mobilizing Commitment
Making change last
Monitoring process
Changing Systems and Structures

Kaizen - Current change management model at Avery Dennison
The cycle of Kaizen activity can be defined as:
Standardize operation and activities
Measure the operation (find cycle time and amount of in-process inventory)
Innovate to meet requirements and increase productivity
Standardize the new, improved operations
Continue cycle

Elizabeth Kubler-Ross Change Curve
Elizabeth Kubler-Ross’ model focuses on the employees and their attitudes towards change
In the 1960’s Elizabeth Kubler-Ross developed a model explaining the grieving process from which the change curve was developed
Change managers can predict how performance is likely to be affected by the announcement and subsequent implementation of a significant change

Elizabeth Kubler-Ross Change Curve
Stage 1 – Shock and denial
Stage 2 – Anger and depression
Stage 3 – Acceptance and integration

How to evaluate successful change within an organization?
Key performance indicators (KPIs)
What is important often depends on the department measuring the performance
How to prepare a change management budget
Benefit of Project is based on the project’s purpose
Project Cost includes hard costs, such as hardware and software, as well as what are sometimes termed soft costs
Change management is one of the factors that has the most impact on the ROI of organizational transformation projects
Investments in change management accelerate the adoption of new tools and/or processes
In conclusion, investments in change management within the framework of organizational transformations are key success factors in optimizing the benefits associated with change
