Symptoms of change saturation

Sometimes there are too many change initiatives going on at the same time, creating a change-saturated environment. In such a situation, some teams and employees may be more impacted than others by simultaneous change.

Individual behaviors

Change initiatives impacting the same teams may result in behaviors like disengagement and apathy, frustration and stress, stronger resistance to change, confusion and skepticism.

Project-level symptoms

If change saturation affects projects and project teams, it may lead to a lack of benefits and resources, unsustained changes and projects losing their strength.

Organizational results

At a higher level, change saturation affects the whole organization in terms of higher turnover, a decline in productivity, absenteeism, loss of focus and negative morale.

Building a Change Portfolio Management Capability is the best way to bring clarity and visibility to the portfolio of change currently underway, in order to manage its cumulative impact on the organization.
