Firstly, many organisations rely on a specific framework or methodology to manage projects and achieve their goals. However, as the business environment changes, such a framework may no longer be effective. The Enterprise Change Pattern can help organisations like yours move away from your existing framework. Adopting instead a flexible new approach, without limitations. One that is better aligned with your business objectives.
2. Introducing a new framework (safely)
Secondly, introducing a new framework can be a challenging process, which can disrupt existing processes and workflows. However, using the Enterprise Change Pattern can help you to introduce a new framework safely. By following the steps outlined in the approach, organisations can ensure that any new framework is tested thoroughly before implementation. In addition to this, any issues or risks are addressed before the change is made.
3. Introducing new ways of working
Thirdly, innovation is crucial for businesses to remain competitive, and introducing new ways of working can be a game-changer. However, implementing new ways of working can be daunting, as it may require significant changes to processes and culture. The Enterprise Change Pattern can help businesses introduce new ways of working in a structured and safe manner, where everyone is included and all voices are heard.
4. Creating a culture of experimentation in a safe way
Innovation requires experimentation, but experimentation can be risky. Our Enterprise Change Pattern enables organisations to cultivate a culture of experimentation in a safe way. By following the steps outlined in the pattern, organisations can test new ideas and concepts without putting the business at risk.

5. Engaging leadership in conversations about change in a way that pulls them
Leadership buy-in is critical for successful change management. However, getting support and alignment from leadership can be challenging. The Enterprise Change Pattern helps engage leadership in conversations about change in a way that pulls them in. Organisations can help leaders understand the need for change and the benefits it can bring by using the methods and concepts outlined in the ECP.
6. Introducing small changes that can be tested quickly (at the team level)
Change can be overwhelming. However, introducing small ‘bite-size’ changes that can be tested quickly, makes the process more manageable. The Enterprise Change Pattern can help companies to introduce small changes at the team level. Thus allowing teams to test these changes and provide feedback before wider implementation.
