Change Management Process
The RIMER... Managing Successful Change methodology is outlined in the following model. The RIMER Model demonstrates the interdependence between project management and change management.
RIMER is the basis for the Australian National Competency Standards in Organisational Change Management, registered by the Australia Government, and recognised internationally by all educational authorities that recognise Australian formal education qualifications.
Respond to a need for change
Recognise that the current way of doing things do not meet what needs to be done to meet changing circumstances
Remove the current way of doing things
Replace the current way with a new way
Restore the environment to business-as-usual.
The project itself may be minor, but the impact on the organisation may be major. If organisational impact is not addressed, the cost of the project may be small compared to the cost of poor implementation. This results in major losses that actually leave the organisation in much worse condition than before the project began.
Stakeholders adopt and adapt to change when those who lead the change:
RESPOND to their knowledge, areas of responsibility and their issues and concerns throughout the change
Keep them INFORMED of matters relevant to them throughout the change
MOTIVATE and inspire them to participate in the change
ENABLE them to make and sustain the change, taking care to remove impediments to their progress and provide them with the tools they need to make the change
RESTORE their confidence in themselves, their organisations, their leaders and their future and, provide time for recovery.
The Change Management processes used to achieve change can be learned in our Diploma of Organisational Change Management, Australia's first and premier formal career pathway for Change Managers,which is a Nationally Recognised Training Program.
Our Change Management Processes are contained in the 250 page RIMER ... Managing Successful Change Professional Edition Manual containing a complete change management framework of policy, strategy, process, procedure, 34 templates, guidelines and linkages that are licensed to students in the Course.
