What are the different ways of communicating change to top management?

Ways to Communicate Change to Top Management
Jagdish B Acharya, Premium Member
I try to give some ways of communicating change to top management.
1. If the cost is low and advantages are high - Do it. Show it with enumeration of advantages discretely to boss.
2. If it is complex - Show it with further scenes and monetary advantages. If it clicks, it will be implemented.
3. If it takes longer to get results - Do it in small steps. Wait for management to know.
4. If it has been done in other areas with good results- Show those cases and suggest.
5. If it is totally new and untried - Develop further stages by simulation or hypothesis and discuss with top via a report.
6. If it has personal benefits for boss - Do not delay and suggest.

Upward movement of change unless recognized properly by the top management does not gain its sanction, since change emanates from top management itself. Tools and techniques suitable to organizational climate are to be evolved for resolution of conflicts of change management during the transition of change either upward or downward.

Change Top Management's Idea of What is to be Changed
Uwe Knaak, Member
When the idea or initiative for the change does not emanate from top management, then the first big hurdle is to manage a change of top management - namely a change of their thinking about what is to be changed.
As long as top management has not become ambassador or even better driver of the change process, full success of the change process will not be reached.
