In the latest episode of the HR on the Offensive podcast, hosted by Chris, the focus is on change management and change analytics. Joining Chris are two LACE change experts Ed Sparks and Liz Bailey, as well as a special guest, Colin Sloman, the Chief Strategy Officer at Cognician. Cognician is an activation platform that focuses on mindset, behaviour change, and skills development, with a strong emphasis on measuring and analysing outcomes. Change analytics involves defining specific outcomes and behaviours to drive change, designing challenges or interventions, and tracking and measuring the results.
Do change managers need to analyse data better?
The importance of data-driven change management is emphasised, and the need for change managers to possess analytical skills is highlighted. Liz mentions that while many change managers recognise the importance of analytics, there is often a challenge in interpreting and utilising the data effectively.
How can analytics be utilised in change management?
Colin explains, data can be gathered upfront to align leadership and gather insights about expectations and outcomes in order to make better business decisions. This allows for course corrections and adjustments throughout the change process, rather than waiting until the end to measure success.
Where will change and HR be in the upcoming years?
Colin believes that HR is shifting towards becoming custodians of people, human performance, and behavioural science, and highlights the impact HR can have on business outcomes.
