For all new processes and system functions, it is critical to ensure that the staff of an organization is properly prepared and trained. Linea employs the Prosci change management methodology to determine the best strategy for ensuring that individual projects or entire modernization efforts are well incorporated into company culture.
Linea staff took their benefit and insurance experience along with an understanding of the current staff, employer, and member-readiness and existing intellectual capital within the organization, and used Prosci's standard, structured approach to assess the organization and create a plan for transition. Our team gathered information through stakeholder interviews and analysis. We conducted a change impact inventory and performed a staffing needs assessment.
Based on our analysis of the information gathered, we created an Organizational Change Management (OCM) strategy, a communication and training plan, an employee engagement and resistance management plan, a sponsor roadmap and coaching plan. Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) for the projects were also identified. All of these artifacts drove training and new system acclimation.
