Embrace Holistic Change Management
Change management is essential to ensure that the initiatives in this strategic plan are implemented successfully. Effective change management creates awareness and understanding about change efforts, improves employee engagement, and decreases stress and fatigue. This helps stakeholders embrace, adopt, and become proficient in executing the implemented changes in their day-to-day work.
As change management must be applied throughout AIR's Transformation, no specific initiative falls within this foundational piece of the strategy. Instead, change management will be proactively integrated and communicated across implementation plans to identify and manage the people side of change efforts. The following foundational action is necessary to support the implementation of the strategy.
Develop an enterprise change management program. This includes implementing a scalable change management methodology. It also includes identifying and developing organizational change management capabilities and competencies to improve results and outcomes of initiatives.
