Your business plan establishes a structure for your company, and your change management strategy should ensure that the business plan is effectively communicated when change is required, maintaining employee focus and understanding. A company that plans for planned change in a way that allows employees to ask questions becomes a part of the process and sees how the changes will almost certainly benefit those impacted and see a better chance of succeeding.
