Change Management Resistance-Management-Tool

#1 Toolkit for Identifying, Managing & Overcoming Resistance to Change Management

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

We’ll dive into the resistance-to-change management 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 organizational change resistance management tool helps you assess stakeholders to identify, understand, and effectively address resistance to the change initiative. 

When you first open the change resistance management tool it will automatically populate the individuals that were scored with a “Low” receptiveness on the stakeholder analysis tool. As you’re managing your target audience for resistance, you can adjust any of the three metrics (Receptiveness, Influence, and Availability) and have them also automatically update in the stakeholder analysis tool.

This is one way of many in which OCMS Portal has been designed to save you valuable time and keep you engaged in critical areas. You can always narrow or expand your stakeholder target audience, leaving you with the ultimate freedom to tailor your assessments.

OCMS Portal is a learning resource, you can access tool related video tutorials and important resources such as documented guides.

OCMS Portal is also a companion while you conduct your change management activities and the business change resistance management tool is there to help you identify common key reasons for resistance and deploy an effective resistance mitigation plan.

In the readiness to change management tool you’ll be able to:

1. Quickly populate the tool with your desired target audience.

2. Assess stakeholder by 3 core attributes: Receptiveness to the change, influence, and availability.

Resistance Receptiveness, Influence, Availability

You’ll first assess “Receptiveness.” This helps you gauge how open a stakeholder group or individual is to the proposed change. Assessing “Influence” next is crucial. Why? Because it helps you understand how much power an individual or group holds in the context of this change initiative.

Lastly, you’ll assess their ‘Availability”, which is all about the stakeholder’s accessibility and how easily they can be reached or involved in the change process.

3. Identify and select multiple key reasons for resistance or easily add your own

4. Seamlessly send out the OMCS Portal resistance assessment survey to have results automatically populate the resistance management tool

5. Gauge automatically calculated risk levels for each stakeholder as they are assessed for resistance

6. Review and edit an auto-generated resistance plan that gives you detailed recommendations customized to that individual’s assessment.

The outputs of the change management resistance management tool provide valuable insights that enable you to mitigate resistance that may interfere with successful project adoption. Understanding where resistance is coming from is crucial for addressing it effectively.

Not all resistance is equal. Some resistance may be minor and can be easily managed, while others can be significant barriers to success. Performing a change management resistance assessment helps you gauge the severity and potential impact of resistance, allowing you to prioritize your efforts. It also helps you begin to understand your target audience’s interests, needs, concerns, and expectations. This is essential when tailoring appropriate communication and engagement strategies.

In today’s fast-paced world, staying competitive is the key to success, and our business change management resistance management tool in our cutting-edge OCMS Portal All-in-One suite is here to make your life easier.
