Change is coming to the security workplace and achieving the benefits of those changes will not be automatic. This white paper explores how companies can implement sustainable changes within their workforce as part of a long-range operational plan, and shares some best practices for managing those changes.
Jobs will change, roles will shift, and different departments that rarely worked with each other before will need to become allies. The challenge facing companies today, as they consider adding technologies such as Unmanned Ground Vehicles (UGVs) to their workforce, is to better understand how change can be sustained. The best place to begin is by adopting change management philosophies that have been successfully used in managing change throughout the Information Technology sectors of business.
When a senior management team creates its vision for change and clearly communicates desired goals and objectives, companies have far less fall back and a much higher success rate. Adopting change management philosophies and developing
an empowered workforce, helps employees accept change while remaining productive, efficient, and better prepared to try the new approaches that will enable their company and themselves to be successful.
