Being ready for change should be an enduring capability. A strategic thing that you create and actively develop to sustain and improve your organisational change readiness on purpose. Change is triggered by many things and is something that happens increasingly frequently throughout organisations. Knowing how you will respond and thrive is an essential foundation for success whether you use a trusted partner or not. Otherwise you risk being a hostage to the future, not being aware or ready to respond as issues and opportunities arise. And for small businesses in particular there is less capacity and less resource available, so having every part of your organisation ready for change can make a real difference to success.
Disruptive changes (bumps in the road) can come from all directions. The most prevalent at present is the digital world driving organisations to examine how they can work through digital transformations. Such transformations give way to the realisation that the digital world will change constantly and, therefore, organsiations will need to be ready to work and thrive through more rapid and more frequent change.
