Develop the change management maturity of a change management office.
A global transport and logistics company had established a Change Management Office (CMO) with the purpose of increasing competitive advantage, by continuously offering a centralized and strategic approach to project implementation and processes, focusing on cost reduction and profit optimization. After three years without seeing much adoption and usage of solutions, the unit leaders recognized the need for structure, a common language, aligned business partnering procedures and more importantly, one common ground.
A Change Management Maturity Audit showed a low to medium score in the company’s maturity on driving changes. The main reasons were lack of a standardised methodology, low change management competencies and no integration with the project management approach.
Annual follow up on the change management maturity score development and continuous development of problem areas.
