Vision to Reality
Vision to Reality
“The less people know, the more they yell.”
– Seth Godin
Creating a vision for a project and turning it into reality is the main aspiration of the Infinity Group team for any project. Although, there is no doubt that the change will certainly be challenging to any organization. As a team, we put change management and communication in the forefront. It will almost always be a challenge to get everyone a hundred percent on board with change. However, it is not a challenge for our team to create space that is accommodating and an asset to employees.
Change management has flourished as a way to transition individual teams and organizations and how they work.
According to the Harvard Business Review’s article “Change Management Needs to Change.”
Most studies still show a 60-70% failure rate for organizational change projects. This is a statistic that has stayed constant from the 1970’s to the present.
As business partners, it has been always been important for us to listen to our clients. As a result, we establish a plan in the beginning that adopts a successful transitioning process.
Intensifying Employee Engagement. Use change as a way to increase employee engagement. That can lead to an increase in innovation and productivity. Explain upfront that everyone adds value and is important to the process.
- Communication. Emotions and personal ethics is the foundation of how people react to change. Therefore as business partners, it is of high priority for us to have discussions with our clients. Also, workspace designs are created based on the collaboration between our team and the clients input. It does not stop there. Because throughout the project, we provide weekly reports as well as weekly project meetings that pinpoint where the project stands and where it is heading.
- Implement Change Through Engaging, Not Managing. Engage with your employees rather than managing them when it comes to transitioning. It allows them to embrace the change. Create the “new” good and if you give them a vision of the outcome, then they can see the goal of a more conducive and productive workspace.
