BT Group create Strategy and Change unit with a seat on the ExeCo!

BT Group create Strategy and Change unit with a seat on the ExeCo headed on an interim bases by a McKinsey & Company Partner.... 

This move underscores the crucial relationship between strategy and change, essential for achieving not just meaningful, but sustainable transformation. 

I have long argued that relationship between strategy and change is vital when you are you trying to achieving not just meaningful transformation but sustainable transformation. A well-defined strategy alone is not enough; effective execution through robust change management processes is equally vital. By combining hashtag#Strategy & hashtag#ChangeBT Group emphasises the importance of clear communication, stakeholder engagement, and organisational agility in navigating successful, complex transformations - a challenge many organisations struggle to address.

Here's why aligning Strategy and Change Management is such a powerful move:

1️⃣ Integration of Vision and Execution: This alignment ensures strategic objectives are actionable and effectively executed across the group.

2️⃣ Minimising Resistance to Change: Consistent messaging fosters employee buy-in and engagement at all levels, mitigating resistance effectively.

3️⃣ Optimising Resource Allocation: Better alignment ensures investments support strategic goals and defined outcomes.

4️⃣ Enhancing Organisational Agility: Integration drives prompt responses to market dynamics, customer needs, and emerging opportunities.

5️⃣ Sustaining Transformational Efforts: Ongoing change management efforts reinforce new behaviours and align actions with strategic goals, ensuring sustainability.

BT Group's move goes beyond rhetoric; it operationalises the interdependency between strategy and change management. As someone who has held a global leadership position as Chief Transformation Officer, I understand the challenges of bridging the gap between strategy and execution. This alignment addresses this challenge, reducing waste and maximises the impact of change initiatives.
