Change Management Profile

By: Worldwide Center for Organizational Development
Vendor: ChurchSmart Resources


One of the key competencies required of people today is the ability to anticipate and respond effectively to change. The Change Management Effectiveness Profile will help the individual develop in this area as well as increase the skill base required to help other individuals, groups or entire organizations in implementing actions that successfully transform vision into reality. Whether change is incremental or organic, dramatic or step this profile is designed to help you build your skills so you can manage the change process more effectively.

This competency based self-assessment is designed to help identify current strengths as well as any areas that require development. It deals with responses in seven sub-categories:

1. Proactive thinking
2. Organization for change
3. Involving others
4. Visioning the future
5. Communicating clearly
6. Breaking from the past
7. Consolidating new learning

Each category contains 12 statements scored on a five point scale ranging from 'Almost Never' to 'Almost Always' in order to get an aggregate score which is then plotted on a histogram. This method visually shows areas of potential improvement so that efforts to improve change management skills can be concentrated. Interpretive notes are provided for each category as well as notes on the impact that your change management skills have on others and the organization. A Personal Action Plan is provided in the back of the booklet to help you commit to the improvement process.

Although primarily intended as a self-assessment the questions have been worded so this tool can also be used for 180 or 360-degree feedback (by purchasing extra copies of this booklet - one for each respondent).

To enhance the insights gained from this Profile and help with the development of the Personal Action Plan we have developed the 12 Page Skill Builder Booklet
