Change Management Frameworks

This week, we’re continuing our discussion on establishing expertise in the workplace, with a focus on change management. We explore how to ensure your advice is followed using proven frameworks such as ADKAR and the McKinsey 7-S model. These frameworks will help you navigate and manage change effectively, whether you’re in healthcare, business, or any other field.

In This Episode, You’ll Discover:

  • What is change management?
  • Challenges in implementing change in healthcare and business settings.
  • Detailed breakdown of the Transtheoretical Model (Stages of Change).
  • In-depth exploration of the ADKAR Model.
  • Comprehensive look at the McKinsey 7-S Model.
  • Practical tips for applying these frameworks personally and professionally.

Key Takeaways:

  • The Importance of Reinforcement: Post-launch support is critical to address any issues that arise and ensure the change is sustained. This involves monitoring progress, providing additional training if necessary, and making adjustments based on feedback.
  • Understanding Your Audience: Tailoring your approach to the specific needs, motivations, and readiness of your audience is essential for successful change management. Knowing what drives and concerns your audience can help in designing effective interventions.
  • Using a Combination of Frameworks: The best chance at managing change successfully is by using a combination of frameworks. Frameworks like ADKAR, McKinsey 7-S, and others help set the foundation, but relying on them solely is a recipe for disaster.
  • Frameworks are a Starting Point: Frameworks help set the foundation for change management by providing structure and guidelines. However, they are just a starting point, and flexibility in their application is necessary for success.
  • Change is Complex: Change management is inherently complex, and no linear model will ever fully apply. There has to be “freedom in the frame” to adapt and respond to the dynamic nature of change.

Join Becca and Andrew for an engaging discussion that not only highlights the challenges professionals face in asserting their expertise but also provides actionable strategies to overcome these obstacles.
