Change Is Inevitable. Are You Prepared?
Change management is nothing new – but it’s difficult to get right. Back in 2015, McKinsey & Company acknowledged that over 70% of change management projects fail. However, the COVID-19 pandemic and the ongoing supply chain crisis made matters even worse, with BCG reporting that 75% of transformation efforts don’t deliver hoped-for results.
This suggests that companies large and small still struggle with managing change. One thing is clear: to survive and thrive in today’s fast-changing, technology-fueled world, you have to make technology change management part of your company culture.
