Change Management is the process, tools, and techniques used to manage the people side of change to achieve the required business outcome. Proper change management focuses on the human impact of the change.

The structured process of identifying needed changes (diagnostic), then building a structured implementation plan, while identifying the impacts on people, processes, and organizations required to imbed and sustain the change successfully.

Our focus is what is best for the client, so we will be by your side, helping, advising, and working with you to make change successful, long term, profitable, and sustainable.

Although the journey towards change can be challenging at times, the benefits of instituting change management are worth it. At Meraki International, our process is designed to reduce the time required to effectively implement change.

Our Process

Step 1: Assessment/Diagnostic

What’s the problem? Are we making the right change? Do we the right level of sponsorship for this change? Is the sponsor bought into the change and fully understand his/her role?

Step 2: Impact Assessment

Who and what is impacted by this change? What is the level of impact?

Step 3: Build a Change Plan

Build the change plan fully aligned with the project plan.

Step 4: Prepare the Organization

Communicate, communicate, communicate. Train and educate. Build a change coalition team.

Step 5: Implementation

Step 6: Embed the change

Build in audit practices, create evergreen plans. Ensure the changes stick and become part of the everyday norm.

Step 7: Reflection

Reflect, learn from the implementation and improve!
