Don’t forget: Have some fun!

Make sure to involve the entire organization from the start

This kind of involvement tends to reduce employees’ resistance, which is always a very important factor in the success of any organizational change.

Your employees may have solutions that you won’t even think of, or they’ll be able to point out potential challenges before they become huge roadblocks. They are immersed in the different aspects of your business day-in and day-out, which means they can provide a truly valuable perspective.

When employees are involved in decision-making they are more driven to implement those plans to the best of their abilities
