Tips for implementing change

Get external support where you need it

This step is the most complex part of reviewing your operating model and you're likely to need external support, such as legal, procurement, consultancy or HR.

Create a 'roadmap' of the major changes

Map out what the major changes are, when they will happen, and how they link to your different current processes.

This could include changes to structure, roles, training needs, governance and reporting and/or purchasing new systems.

Get the right people internally to own different capabilities

The change won’t happen unless you make sure the people leading the different capabilities know who they are, and understand what they need to do.

Ask each of them for an action plan which shows how they'll implement the change.

Don’t be the leadership team that announces a big change and then leaves it to others alone
