OCMS Portal - Change Analysis

All-in-One OCMS Platform

Business Impact Analysis Tool

Hi and welcome to OCMS Portal. Today we’ll provide you with an overview of the Change Impact Assessment tool.

We’ll dive into the change impact analysis tool’s core features that contribute to making OCMS Portal the best All-in-One organizational change management platform by simplifying and streamlining the change management process.

The change impact assessment tool is designed to help you analyze how employee groups will be uniquely impacted by a change. It is part of “Phase 1: Assess” in the OCMS Portal framework.

When you arrive on the Change impacts analysis tool for the first time it will be empty. You’ll start by adding your first change. OCMS Portal is a learning resource, and you can access tool related video tutorials and important free resources such as documented change assessments and impacts guides.

OCMS Portal Free Resources

OCMS Portal is also a companion while you conduct your change management activities, the change impact analysis tool is there to help you identify risks and challenges associated with the change.

In the tool you’ll be able to:

1. Quickly add new unique changes to your project

2. Identify the specific target audience impacted by the change. In the OCMS Portal change impact assessment tool, you can identify specific target audience by individuals as well as by groups. The benefits of identifying change impacts by employee groups allows change leaders to understand how to prepare and support employees through change.

3. You can easily detail the current and future state of what is changing and quickly specify the type of change or create your own. A change can have one or more types. For example, a change involving new cybersecurity procedures, might include the types “compliance” and “policy” meaning the change is impacting both areas in the organization. Designating change types helps leaders understand which types of changes are impacting their departments or regions.

4. Seamlessly determine the impact level on the target audience. A “High Level of Impact” demands significant audience attention and action. Why? Because it is highly disruptive, to the current state. A “Medium Level of Impact” requires focused attention because failure to address it leads to reduced adoption or performance.

In addition to High and Medium impacts. A change can also be classified as a Low impact. A “Low Level of Impact” needs minimal attention. Impacted audiences may notice but would likely adapt on their own. Failure to adopt has no significant impact on performance.

Change Impacts - Adding new project changes

Projects will typically include more than one change. For example, a software adoption project may include a technology change and a policy change. These changes can also impact different groups.

You can create and edit as many relevant changes as your project requires. All fully editable by your change management team. By performing a change impacts assessment and assessing the impact levels on the different groups, you prioritize resource allocation easier. Determine where budget, manpower and time are needed the most.

You can make use timesaving features such as our import function, allowing you to effortlessly upload your change impacts details into the tool. As well as being able to print your change impact assessment to present to higher management. The results generated by this tool make up the essential building blocks of your OCM Plan.

Main features of the change impacts tool

As a Senior Change Management Lead, I have successfully delivered transformational business, social and culture changes that impacted hundreds of thousands of individuals across the Federal Reserve Bank, Intel, Accenture, Cisco, Apple, Deloitte, Capital One, Fannie Mae, AIG, HSBC, and other organizations.

Throughout my change management career, one major pain point I have heard from hundreds of practitioners has been a lack of a consistent, standardized, and best-in-class assessment template and tool that can be used to assess any kind of change including business impacts, software or technology change impacts, social changes, culture changes, process changes, policy changes, and even climate change impact assessments.

And so, as a Pioneer of best business, social, and organizational toolkits and a strong advocate of the global innovation community I decided to work with OCM Solution (formerly AGS) Designers and Developers to launch the #1 top-ranked Business Impact Analysis Template below that any change practitioner, organization or consulting firm can use, irrespective of experience.

Change Impact Assessment Matrix Tool FAQ

How do you write an impact assessment?

You would begin by assessing the impact a project will have on organizational groups, job roles, and external stakeholders. It’s important to fully understand the project so you can identify who is being impacted and how.

Using a change impact analysis tool, you will then want to enter data on your impacted groups and indicate the level of impact each one has. Not all groups are impacted equally in many cases.

Generate reporting on who is being impacted, how they are being impacted, and the severity of the impact. It’s helpful if you are using tools for impact analysis that generate analytics automatically for you.

What are the different types of impact assessment?

When doing a change impact assessment using impact analysis tools, there are different types of assessments you can do, depending upon the level of detail needed.

Different types of impact assessment include:
• Organizational-level impact assessment
• Stakeholder-level impact assessment
• External stakeholder impact assessment
• Agile project impact assessment

What information should be included in a change impact?

You should at minimum include the following details:
• Organizational groups or individuals being impacted
• Names of job roles being impacted
• Current State (Pre-Change) processes
• Future State (Post-Change) processes
• The level of impact

What is the impact assessment of a project?

A project impact assessment evaluates which groups of people in an organization will have to change the way they do things due to a project that is happening.

A project impact assessment template can also look at which external groups will be impacted by a company project, such as customers and vendors.
