What is a Change Model for Restructuring & Should You Use One?

All businesses need to go through one kind of change process or another from time to time.

If you started a company a long time ago and never implemented any changes and never tried to adapt to new situations on the market, then you’re probably on the verge of failing.

That might sound cruel, but it’s just the way it is. The only constant in life changes, as it has been observed by Heraclitus, a well-known Greek philosopher.

It seems that what Heraclitus said a long time ago is still relevant today. And, what’s more, it doesn’t apply only to life in general, but to practically every aspect of our lives, including the professional one.

To cut to the chase, this is a truth that all businesses need to be aware of if they really want to succeed.

The good thing is that most companies are aware of it, which is why they frequently go through organizational change, as explained here.

Those changes don’t happen at random, though, and business owners don’t simply leave things up to chance and hope for the best.

There are restructuring models that they can follow in order to get better results.

The fact that you’re here tells me that you’re interested in learning more about those models, with the goal of figuring out if you want to use them or not.

Well, I am now going to answer some important questions for you and help you make that decision.

What is Organizational Change?

Before we get to talking about those models, I need to be perfectly sure that you know what kind of adjustment we are talking about here in the first place.

The organizational change aims at reviewing and, of course, modifying structures and business processes. In order to survive on the market, you need to adapt.

And, adaptation won’t be possible if you keep sticking to those old processes and management structures.

What is a Change Model for Organizational Restructuring?

I suppose that the above has made it perfect clear what organizational change is. So, we now have to proceed to talking about those models that I have mentioned.

As explained already, business owners don’t just let things be and hope that something will get better in their organization all on its own, without them having to even lift a finger.

Instead, they often use certain models for change, models that have been around for a long time and that can help them guide the whole company through the process and come out as the winner on the other side.

There are, of course, numerous different models out there, and some companies are even known for developing their own ones. Those aim at making the restructuring process easier and more successful.

Are all of those models successful, though? That is the million dollar question right there.

We cannot deny the fact that all of those have their own values and some great strengths, but we also cannot help but wonder if relying on those is really the right thing to do at all times.

Well, to put things simply, just like they have great strengths, all of these models also have their own weaknesses.

Should You Use One?

Does the above mean that you shouldn’t use any of these models, then? After all, if they are lacking in certain aspects, shouldn’t you be worried about them harming the actual restructuring process?

That is quite a valid concern and I am definitely not going to argue against the fact that you should be worried about the models causing some harm.

The truth is, though, that you should be concerned only if you blindly follow all the steps without thinking for yourself.

To say it differently, all of these restructuring models have their value, as we have explained above already.

It would definitely be unfair of us to completely dismiss them and claim that they cannot be of any help.

It wouldn’t only be unfair, but it would also be completely wrong, since there is no doubt that they can be of great help during the process of organizational change.

What you have to keep in mind, though, is that not all of them will work for your particular company, which is why you should be careful when choosing the right one for you and you should always use your common sense in addition to following what the specific model has to say.

How to Select?

If you’ve been reading carefully, then you know that selecting one of those models for you won’t be easy.

The most important thing to do here is to think carefully about what your business precisely needs.

Then, take your time to research the different change management solutions that exist and figure out which one would fit those needs the best. And, once again, don’t forget to use your common sense.
