Sustaining Change in the IDD/Special Needs Workplace
The final change management step is to create the necessary culture and infrastructure in the workplace that will allow the persistence of desired change(s). These processes must be sustainable (i.e. not overly complex) and should involve continued change execution, measurement and improvement. This means leaders continue to champion well-researched valuable change efforts, require ongoing assessments that measure change effort(s) alongside predetermined goals, as well as radiating a belief in their staff that they can create ‘good’ change again and again.
After that, you will have a company culture that understands, embraces and effects change whenever needed. Since change is not going away you will have an organization that is ready for anything.
Change Management is a Cost Avoidance Technique and a Risk Mitigation Tactic
Change is unavoidable in the workplace and in life. However instead of resisting we can learn to embrace the challenge of change and make it work for us. Strong leaders with great integrity will be needed to avoid the unnecessary demise of many IDD service organizations during these periods of swift significant change.
