What is Change Management?

Change Management is all about preparing for and handling organisational change. To develop their Change Management qualification, the APMG have worked with the writers of the Making Sense of Change Management book to deliver a qualification which helps both organisations and their employees come to terms with the issues that may come up during the process of change. APMG is a globally recognised and respected provider of professional certifications such as PRINCE2 and COBIT.

 

Case Study
 

Multinational energy company Centrica were growing quickly. In just a few years, they had tripled in size, and they wanted to continue to expand consistently. To do this, they began to roll out a global management system to standardise processes across the organisation. It was important to get this right. Parts of Centrica were experiencing ‘change fatigue’ and employees were less willing to embrace change if they felt it was being forced upon them. In addition, regulations and policies had to be strictly adhered to, with employees staying up to date with all changes.  

To ensure successful adoption of the global management system, effective change management was needed. Centrica’s programme team ensured stakeholder engagement was a priority, keeping senior management in the loop and understanding their priorities. They also listened to their sceptics, considering their viewpoints and involving them directly in the risk planning process.

By implementing effective change management policies, Centrica managed to roll out their organisational changes with minimal resistance. They have continued to expand into other countries quickly and efficiently while adhering to the complex international regulations which govern the energy industry.

Bumper Guide to Surviving the Night Shift

Working the night shift can be an attractive option to some people, for reasons such as higher pay, a laid back atmosphere and even the fact that you get to avoid annoying co-workers…

For others - such as nurses, doctors and security guards - the night shift is more of a necessity which comes with the job.

Whichever category you fit into, there is a certain art to working the night shift and keeping your body and mind healthy and happy, so follow our handy guide to doing the night shift the right way, and feel your body reap the rewards…

1. Always eat a full, nutritious and satisfying meal before your shift

During the daytime it’s likely that the workplace cafeteria will be well stocked up with good food, however at night the food institutions may be closed. If you usually eat at cafés and restaurants around your workplace during the day it’s likely that these will be closed too, so be sure to fill up before work. Carry a few snacks as well, to keep hunger at bay.

2. Get your 8 hours

Although it’s tempting to stay awake during the day to run errands and spend time with family and friends, it’s just not feasible when you’re working nights; Be sure to get at least 8 hours sleep during the day. Granted the pace of work may be slower at night, but that doesn’t mean you can sleep on the job.

3. Invest in a good quality digital watch

At night, the body tends to relax naturally and you’ll be less alert, therefore to ensure you never lose track of time use a digital watch with a bright display to keep the time in front of you all the time.

4. Take time to unwind

When daybreak comes and your night shift is finally over - however tempting it may be - don’t collapse straight into bed! Relax and unwind for a while, read a book, have a bit of breakfast or do some household chores – anything to get your mind off work before you go to bed! Your body will tell you when you’re ready to sleep and your sleep will be more relaxed (and you won’t keep waking up wondering why you aren’t at work…)

5. Keep in the loop

Try to manage your shifts in such a way that you can sync with your family’s day and night schedules; attempt to check in with them as much as possible! This will give you a sense of normality and allow you to avoid feeling completely isolated.

6. Ease yourself in

If you work multiple shifts, try to gradually work towards the night shift. Go from day shift to evening shift and then to night shift so that your body adjusts to the work timings.

7. Use your daylight hours wisely

Just before your body starts winding down for its ‘night time’ (when your shift has just ended) you tend to be most alert and awake – so use this time wisely. Pay bills, make important calls, do chores and check your kids’ homework. This way, you’ll be killing two birds with one stone as you’ll be winding down and getting out of the work mind-set just before you go to sleep, plus you’ll be getting important things done – result!

8. Re-enact night time during the day

tIn order to ensure you get the best sleep you possibly can during the day, create a ‘night time’ effect in your house’. You can easily do this by utilising a sleep mask, earplugs and black out curtains or blinds. Also make sure anyone at home knows that so much as breathing too loudly will not be tolerated; you need to cheat your body into thinking it’s night time and you should be sleeping. Creating complete darkness and quiet and essential to making sure you sleep soundly.

9. Workout

Make sure you keep up some form of regular exercise; this will keep your body flooded with positive hormones and endorphins, keeping you happy, healthy and feeling good about life. You will also be able to sleep better, more naturally and deeply after a great workout.

10. Don't resort to sleeping pills

Although insomnia can feel like the end of the world, and you’d do anything to get yourself to sleep, don’t resort to drinks and sleeping pills to put you to sleep! This will lead to a vicious cycle that could lead to dependence on pills and drinks which you certainly don’t want. Once you have messed up your body’s sleep architecture and normal circadian rhythms, it’s a difficult thing to get them back in check. If you are finding it particularly difficult to sleep, use natural remedies or listen to soothing music. Stay away from activities that stimulate your mind just before bed as this is a sure-fire way to keep sleep at bay. Last but not least, no screens! Tablets, phones and laptops should be switched off and not looked at for a minimum of one hour before attempting to enter the land of nod.

11. Step away from the caffeine

However dearly you hold your steaming mug of creamy latte, caffeine is not your friend! Yes, it will give you an instant buzz and helps you get past that feeling of lethargy in the short term, this is often short lived and temporary! In the long term, caffeine disrupts your body’s circadian rhythm and often leaves you feeling even more tired after the crash. Plus it can be addictive and is a diuretic – you don’t want to keep waking up for the loo and disrupt any precious sleep. Don’t drink more than a cup or two of coffee in 24 hours.
