The key to successful change is to understand what is essential to the customer. How do we make work processes more efficient and improve results? Activities should be done in a straightforward and customer-friendly matter, while keeping bureaucracy to the minimum. Successful change requires that people at all organisational levels understand the change drivers and objectives as well their own role to fulfil them. Personal understanding and commitment will lead to higher success rates and job satisfaction.
