CHANGE MANAGEMENT

Change Management closes the gap between strategic direction in the board room and delivery of results on the shop floor. It pursues alignment between management's direction and how the plan is executed on the floor through consistent and quantifiable measurements ensuring the team makes the right decisions in a timely basis. In this fashion the message is clearly communicated and variances are addressed before it's too late and action cannot be taken.

The AMS Group does not sell change as a way to drive agreement and implementation because selling does not assure a sustainable process. We believe people need to understand what change means and give them the support and mentoring to cope with change effectively. When the team understands that they will be a functioning part of structuring that change - change can and will be sustainable. Change must involve the team; change cannot be dictated, however the change process can be facilitated and enabled.
