Coaches will conduct 1-1s with upper management to train and educate them regarding the process or system change. Upper management will help facilitate lessons to teams and subordinates via detailed coaching resources. MEG coaches will be available to reinforce learning and training of lower-level teams.
Productivity will be measured through a series of factors depending on the organizational change, including but not limited to technology adoption, use of communication channels, and efficiency and timeliness of project submissions. Project management tracking software, regular check ins with upper management, and exit interviews post-change implementation will be used to establish sustainable systems and guides for the organization.
