Organizational change management (OCM) focuses on the human side of changes within an enterprise, providing methods to address the impact that new business technology, processes and more can create within a company. Successful OCM frameworks help people to transition to new methodologies based upon their roles within a company, helping them to go beyond accepting changes to embracing how they can maximize enterprise successes. At CSS, we’ve found that effective OCM programs help companies realize an average ROI of 140%. Compare that to the average ROI of only 35% in companies with poor change management processes, and the impact of quality programs quickly becomes apparent.
At CSS, we combine the best organizational change practices with sound behavioral science, directing change operations at four levels: enterprise, division, project team, and individual. Contact us today to discuss your OCM challenges!
Organizational change management (OCM) is key in driving successful change. We’ve found that effective OCM programs help enterprises to realize an average ROI of 140%, allowing them to maximize the impact of initiatives. Compare that to the average ROI of companies with poor OCM processes—35%—and you can easily see the impact of highly effective OCM methodologies.
Strong OCM programs can align a company’s practices with its values, and can help to future-proof that organization from the impact of ongoing change, especially important in the ever-evolving, competitive environment of the 21st century.
OCM helps everyone throughout the enterprise to speak the same language and optimize the value inherent in the company’s technologies—and can save the company significant amounts of time and money. Organizational change does not happen on its own, so contact us online today to discuss your OCM needs.
We tailor our organizational change management (OCM) using these four business levels: enterprise/organizational; division, facility, or department; process/core or extended teams; and individual.
At the enterprise level, we establish accountability alignment and effective decision making procedures, and manage a project’s impact on organizational roles. At the division level, we quantify impacts, mitigate risks, properly prepare for transition, and more. At the team level, we focus on equipping teams for productivity, reducing stress and facilitating their ability to lead change long after the project is live. And, because the heart of OCM is helping people transition during change and maximize opportunity, we focus significantly on individual transformation to create a sustainable growth culture.
CSS recognizes how each project and its accompanying OCM needs are unique, so we integrate behavioral and neuro psychology into our methodologies. Please contact us online to discuss your unique OCM needs.
Change management is geared towards maximizing transitional successes based upon a company’s unique culture. So, a key principle is to have a thorough understanding of company culture and then create organizational change management (OCM) methodologies that dovetail with an enterprise’s culture, and align change from there. Buy-in throughout a company is the ultimate goal, but it’s vital to have buy-in from the top from the start. Does the executive team agree about the reasons for change and the need to implement OCM?
Then, the OCM strategy must include plans specifically tailored for the entire organization, as well as for divisions, teams, and individuals. The strategy should be designed to guide people through understanding change, accepting it, and then embracing it for maximum success.

Change management methodology is the approach taken to transition an enterprise, and the divisions, teams, and individuals within that enterprise, in a way that maximizes that company’s success. These methodologies are typically implemented when technologies and/or processes used within a company are being upgraded or otherwise improved upon. There are multiple models and approaches that can be used, with the most effective ones specifically tailored to a company’s culture, objectives, challenges, structures, and more.
Organizational change management (OCM) programs should be strategically created and implemented to maximum effectiveness. Here’s something to compare and contrast. At CSS, we have discovered how companies that implement a successful OCM program typically realize an ROI of 140%. Companies that use poor processes, though, average an ROI of 35%.
CSS has refined OCM methodology for more than 20 years, using best practices and integrating behavioral and neuro psychology into how we deliver projects. Contact us online!
