Successfully master developments with change management
Salad or burger? A little under 20 years ago, McDonald’s started the new millennium facing a substantial crisis: enormous competitive pressure and the bad health image of burgers, chips, etc. saw sales figures sink. Management took the bull by the horns: going against the previous corporate philosophy, they put their faith in salads, fruit and healthy dishes. In this way, they not only changed the bad image of the company, but acquired new target groups at the same time. An exciting example of clever change management.
Changes are complex and trigger emotions
At the same time, the McDonald’s example provides an idea of the massive effects radical changes have on the departments within a company. From Purchasing and Processing to Production, Sales, Marketing and even Customer Relations, core workflows need to be reconsidered and tested. So it is no surprise that not all employees react with enthusiasm. Some are at a loss and wait to see what comes next. Others are shocked or even angry.
Are important changes upcoming in your company? If you are in a position of responsibility, it’s a good idea to be prepared. And even better if you know what to do because you are familiar with the typical change workflows and processes. Find out more here:
