a2B Change Management Framework (a2BCMF) Step #3: Assess Previous Change


3rd Critical Organisational Change Implementation Step - Plan Phase

a2BCMF Step #3 – Assess Previous Change

Assess Previous Change:
This step is about Assessing Previous Change to achieve future change management success. This involves analysing previous organisation change history to mitigate previous weaknesses and enhance future success. We use your data to improve future change success.

“To achieve future organisational change management success, analyse previous change history to mitigate previous weakness and enhance future success”

Business Benefits: Assessing previous change history can provide data and insights as to what worked well, or not so well in the past. This can provide guidance for future change implementations in order to improve adoption and benefits realisation.

Business Objective: Lessons learned from previous change history can:

❖ Enhance Previous Change Success: Establish what worked well previously so it can be used to enhance future change implementation success.

“If an organisation has a history of change failure, future success will require a different approach”

❖ Mitigate Previous Change Weaknesses: Establish what did not work well so the same mistakes are not repeated, mitigating previous implementation change weakness

The a2B Change Management Framework (a2BCMF) is a structured and disciplined approach to support organisations, leadership teams and individuals going through a change, the transition from the current ‘a’ state to the improved future ‘B’ state. The a2BCMF has three phases and ten key process steps. Each phase provides change strategies, principles, analysis and tactics to move from one phase to the next.
The framework is based on over thirty years of international change experience and brings together leading practice in change, people and programme management. The structured programme approach, processes, techniques and tools focus on overcoming the failures of previous change by incorporating ten key steps and success elements for achieving organisational change. It supports strategic change implementation in terms of context, content and process. The framework is a comprehensive management model that allows executives, managers and change practitioners to successfully deliver and achieve organisational change. It requires a holistic approach and some steps can be performed simultaneously.
