Step-by-Step Change

‘Step-by-Step Change’ is an ‘out-of-the-box’ solution from the Change Factory, which is aimed at customers who need support in managing their change initiatives.  It is based on an industry-proven approach consisting of nine stages with supporting tasks, each of which provide guidance, hints and tips, action lists, templates, checklists and real-life examples. 

The example provided here is for Stage 2 (‘Understand Your Objectives’) of ‘Step-by-Step Change’, which focuses on ensuring that the objectives of the planned change are fully understood as well as recognising the gap that currently exists.

The image shows the outline change process, together with a list of example tasks. The assets supporting this Stage ensure that your objectives are formulated using sound principles, are achievable and have measurable targets and that any identified improvement options are appropriately filtered and prioritised.

Benefits of the Method

Some of the benefits of using ‘Step-by-Step Change’ are:

  • Faster mobilisation: customers have reported up to three months faster mobilisation of their change teams compared to conventional approaches;
  • Greater efficiency: following a standard approach with common templates and examples will make your change initiatives more productive;
  • Reduced learning curve: practitioners will get up-to-speed faster since ‘Step-by-Step Change’ is intuitive, easy to learn and supported by a wealth of practical tools;
  • Learning from experience: unlike many proprietary methodologies, ‘Step-by-Step Change’ can be adapted and extended to incorporate your own tools, examples and learning.

These benefits ensure that a change team can focus their attention on realising early benefits from the planned change rather than waste time building their own change management toolset.

We can tailor your own version of ‘Step-by-Step Change’ often at no extra charge using our Tailoring Service.

There are also a number of training modules provided (see Training Overview) as well as other support (see Other Support).
