Manage a Transition Group Representative of the Whole for Your Workplace Transition 1119

by Stephen Hobbs in wellth movement  | 11 Comments

Workplace transition requires the involvement of a transition group who works horizontally across the verticals. This group has to see (make sense of ) the whole to manage-lead (or make recommendations for) the transition. That is to consider, explore, and encourage efficient, effective and relevant organization of work because of the reason for the transition. 

This article is the second of 10 exploring Workplace Transition (Workplace Experience - #WPT, #WPX) ... where in workplace terms "transition (internal) is about the organization response to change (external) - knowing "change surrounds every challenge" (Dr. Linda Hines). Herein challenge is about the hindering and helping complementarity of challenges.

Manage a transition group representative of the whole  

Important points for this article include:

  • encourage dialogue about the concepts and practices of implementation - innovation - inspiration - insights  
  • consider naming the group in words that express its outcome 
  • explore the characteristics of team appropriate for the transition group  

Dialogue about Implementation - Innovation - Inspiration - Insights 

While setting-up, during, and closing-out the transition group remain attentive and "intentive" to the use of the terms and concepts associated with

  •  Implementation
  • Innovation
  • Inspiration
  • Insights

In doing so you encourage IT = I Transition ... because it's important each member AND the group transition as well. Herein you have five "eyes" to see (sense) what's happening.

Name the Group Suggesting the Outcome  

Because the transition group is about "transition," it's helpful/useful to group members and more so to the "stakeholders" of the transition to have a sense of the outcome (a reminder) of the transition group's involvement in their organization of work.  

During a merger & acquisition transition, the transition group called themselves CART = Competence Action Review for Transition. They were tasked with encouraging staff & customers in their locations (dealerships) to appreciate and engage in the transition to a hybrid management-leadership system (blending the best of what is with the best of the new company) while sharing the new name and the branding story. The storyline was about acquiring new competence necessary for the business movement to ensure continued profitability.

Include the Appropriate Characteristics of Team in the Organization of the Transition Group 

You've established a group - those involved understand its mandate - and your moving forward. 

An important element of the "people navigation" of the group is to use the appropriate characteristics of team to improve, focus, and strengthen the group approach. 

The transition group is short-lived. Therefore, assigning resources (time, effort, and money) to creating a team is counter to the group's mandate. 

Instead ... consider developing and sustaining a GREAM - the choice between group and team
