Your change strategy will depend on the type of change you're trying to achieve, whether it's a developmental, transitional, or transformative change. Development changes often focus only on the people and processes involved in one aspect of the business. Transitional and transformational changes often require more radical changes affecting multiple departments or teams. Transient changes are changes at the level of the organization, such as mergers and acquisitions.
Managing changes at this level can be difficult, as you may need to hire people from another company or division to work with you. Development changes are changes to existing processes or procedures to make them more effective. With these relatively minor changes, you're usually working with a smaller team. Close-knit teams can be a gift or a curse.
If you can add them to your team right away, that's great. Careful communication can help you avoid resistance between one or two members, damaging the entire team dynamic. Transformational changes are those that seek to transform the company, its products and services or its ways of doing business. This change can be the hardest to achieve and the one that can cause the most resistance.
