Newswire: July 14, 2008 Facilitating Organizational Change

NewsWire
    TomMendozaTom Mendoza, vice chairman of NetApp, a storage and data management solutions provider, talked to The Economic Times about facilitating organizational change.
  • Change Is All About Leadership and Communication
    The Economic Times

    Mendoza contends that, “Organizations are usually resistant to change because they don't have a perspective on why they need to change or what the benefits of change are (or the risks of not changing). Change is all about leadership and communication and often needs new individuals in key areas to lead it.

    “A key to successful change is communication and recognition. Assuming that employees have pride in the organization and want to see it succeed, change can be continually implemented. Most successful change involves people at multiple levels being involved in the planning and communication process.

    ”The benefits of the change should be measured and shared along with the recognition of people and groups who have done the most to achieve the results.”

    More than technology, “The human element dwarfs others when discussing change. Leadership, communication and recognition throughout the process are essential for changing behavior.”
