Strategies Used by the Organization

In order to address the challenges that hindered the organization’s planning process and
forecasting, program evaluation was used a tool to gain insights on the key stakeholders’ perception
about the organization. The realization that the key stakeholders like clients and government
policymakers had full confidence with their progress made paved room for elimination of bureaucratic
processes and hierarchical leadership styles that hindered proper planning and execution of their
mandates.

The company shifted their focus from relying on mediocre results to coming up with ways to
satisfy the needs of their target audience and clients. Moreover, the move was to enable the
organization raise the confidence to a higher level. The formulation of key goals, their accompanying
responsibilities, and the activity timelines enabled the organization to streamline their communication
process and track the progress. Besides everyone was held accountable for the results produced in the
process of achieving the desired goals.

Recommendations

Step-by-step planning is essential for managing change in organizations. Lack of planning or


hindrance to planning may lead to problems thereby limiting the ability to achieve the desired goals and
restore confidence of the key stakeholders. Management teams in organizations must therefore
understand the need to design goals, formulate strategies on how to achieve them, and adopt
democratic leadership styles in order to reduce barriers and hold everybody accountable for their
actions.

Transitioning from old systems that focus less on the clients and other key stakeholders to a
new system that recognizes and strives to satisfy the needs of clients require every employee to be
conversant with their roles and tasks during the change process. Outlining areas of jurisdiction for every
employee can help mitigate the possibly challenges or difficulties that may be experienced during the
process.

Managers must get everyone on board in order to avoid the barriers that may come in during
decision making and implementation process. Conducting baseline surveys to get people’s opinions
regarding the organizational performance and their level of confidence may help making informed
decisions with the aim of achieving the desired goals. Moreover, explaining to all the concerned parties
the importance of every action helps in reducing resistance and reservations that may negatively
influence the implementation process.

Evidence Showing Board Members’ Shift

Unlike the old days when board committee members’ actions were constrained by hierarchical
leadership structures and decision making, they are now charged with guiding the progress towards the
organization’s goals. Moreover, focus on responsibilities, accountability to results, and constant
communications are key elements of true governance. The integration of strong connection, constant
communication, and consultant engagement supported the implementation process.

The act of board of committee and the directors allowing the transition plan to shift its timelines
until the organization gains stability was an act of true governance. Managing transitions involves the
incorporation of the relevant company culture while navigating through the promotions and handling
the issues of transparency and integrity with care. During the transition stage, the board of committee
ensured that the key elements are properly addressed.

Board members displayed mature relationships between them and the directors thereby
creating room for transparency and collaborations. They used such avenues to strengthens teams
understanding regarding the issue. Moreover, they used the findings of the baseline survey to
strengthen their relationships with the clients and other stakeholders.
