What Is Startup Change Management?
I successfully completed a number of different traditional ‘corporate’ business administration and change management courses with corporate change management methods and tools when I worked at ABN Amro (for IT professionals, International Business Administration and a European Executive MBA) and obtained a PhD in Business Administration & Knowledge Management in 2001 at digital transformation of financial service providers (see here).
They were all excellent Action-learning courses and I have had a lot of use in the corporate world and still with large clients that have to become small, ‘Lean’ and ‘Agile’. Why? Because you learn how to provide corporate organizational advice and how to do corporate change management.
But during a crisis like the Covid-19 crisis, you need ‘startup change management’ soft- and hard skills and different entrepreneurial methods & tools to be able to change the organisation of a startup fast as part of crisis management.
What is startup change management?
Startup change management is an integral approach to prepare, support and assist individuals and startup teams in implementing startup organizational changes in a holistic way, including during a crisis like Covid-19.
Central to to challenge of founders of startups is how to start and stay ‘Lean & Mean’ with the help of ICT, with a virtual organization. Why? Because by nature, startups are alreay ‘Lean’ & ‘Agile’ and they want to stay that way!
You need completely different methods & tools, different entrepreneurial tools, to change existing startup organisation, the existing startup business model, the existing startup revenuemodel and last but not least, the existing startup business ecosystem in an integrated way….. and fast.
