Change Management

Any change project has 4 clear stages
For successful delivery these must all be considered
Watershed Associates can help with any or all of these stages

Identifying options

Watershed Associates employ a range of techniques to identify opportunities for improvements. For example:

  • Strategy review
  • Process analysis
  • Performance measurement
  • Internal and external benchmarking
  • Planning the change

    Watershed help you plan any changes to ensure that nothing is overlooked. Planning should include:

  • Stakeholder analysis
  • Communications plan
  • Success criteria
  • Completion criteria
  • Risk assessment and mitigation
  • Project structure
  • Implementation

    Watershed employ the latest project management techniques to ensure that any change initiatives are managed through to successful completion. Success is assured through:

    • Regular progress and risk reviews
    • Carefully structured project board meetings
    • Involvement of all levels in the organisation
    • Open agenda meetings
    • Staff briefings
    • Staff newsletters & bulletin boards


    Watershed do not leave an organisation stranded. A carefully designed handover ensures that ‘business as usual’ can be restored as soon as possible. Success criteria are compared with the actual outcome so that learning points are captured for key staff in the organisation. These are compiled into a handover document, which ensures nothing is overlooked.
