A change management consultant can help businesses through rough periods. However, if you've never considered hiring a change management consultant before, you may not understand what exactly one does. Change management consultants can help with corporate culture change, transition management, strategic planning, organizational structure and restructuring, executive coaching and human capital management, among other things. Learn more about these key terms to determine how a change management consultant can help you make the most of your business.

Strategic planning

Strategic planning is important for any business. It involves setting a mission statement and goals over the next two or three years. Businesses need strategic planning to decide what types of products and services they need to develop. A change management consultant will help businesses focus their strategic planning.

Organization structure

The organization structure is how a business functions. It specifies who does what job and which managers people report to. Occasionally, businesses need organizational restructure to become more efficient. A change management consultant can determine whether your business has the best organization structure possible.

Culture change

Culture change focuses on changing the attitudes of workers. Employees that have a negative attitude may cause others within the organization to feel negative. Change consultants analyze your corporate culture and drive any necessary changes.

Transition management

All businesses go through change, but some employees have a harder time dealing with it than others. In particular, during a buyout or merger restructure, change consultants can help with the transition management to ensure that workers adapt more easily.

Executive coaching

Executive coaching helps the executives in an organization perform better by offering one-on-one advice. Some change management consultants specialize in executive coaching.
Harvard Business School explains what an executive coach can do for you.

Human capital management

Human capital is the people in an organization and the skills that they have. Smart companies aim to manage their human capital well and try to encourage growth among employees, which benefits both the employee and the company. If things are starting to go awry, contact a change management consultant to help you get back on track.
