Why Is Change Management Crucial for Business Revamp?
The consequences of change always impact employees. Therefore, it is essential to have their support during your business revamp initiatives. Due to the insecurity and uncertainty it creates, employees are often reluctant to change. Leaders must act as change agents to drive the company toward success and demonstrate that they can deal with new challenges.
Business Revamp Initiatives: How to Manage Change

Create a detailed strategic plan, list goals, and plan how you want to achieve them. Additionally, consider the budget for the business revamping process and the resources you may require. Ensure your strategic plan includes measurable impacts like savings, incentives, and other valuable data.
