Transformation is the process of changing an organization's culture with a goal in mind.
That goal (or goals) will differ depending on the organizations.
For example, if could be:
- making operational changes to optimize costs and / or maximize efficiency,
- becoming more agile by implementing a self management framework at organizational level, or
- switching from physical offices in 2 locations to distributed teams worldwide.
No matter the approach you choose, organizational transformation processes are usually costly, long and complex because there are a lot of moving parts that need to be considered.
Measuring the success of change management throughout the project is key to stay on track and keep improving.
Drawing from the experience of a specialized coach in transformation is often recommended, especially for transformation projects that involve a large number of people.
