Organizational Change Management

Organizational Change Management (OCM), is about managing an organization's cultural make-up during a organizational-level change initiative. OCM strategies generally lead to cultural changes at the end of the change initiative.

Organizational Culture is a heavily-loaded word and means a host of things that includes:
  • The behaviors rewarded or discouraged in the organization
  • Top management team's energy levels and behaviors - this is influenced by the top man himself (the CEO)
  • How vocal employees are at management and other meetings
  • The emphasis (or over-emphasis) on business ethics
  • Whether employees come on time and leave on time, come on time but stay late, or come and go flexibly
  • Jargons and keywords most often used in the organization - again the CEO leads everyone on this
  • What happens on days when most of the top management is away (for off-site meetings, etc.)
