The next challenge is ensuring that the change is implemented effectively and efficiently. There are several important aspects of implementing change in an organization. For example, it is important to develop a good implementation strategy. It is also important to involve the right people in the implementation of change.

The final challenge is sustaining the change so that it becomes permanent. It is very easy to stop doing what you have been doing until now or to do things in a way that is different from the way you have been doing them. 

Once people get used to the new way of doing things, it is often easy to forget why the changes were made and go back to the way things were done before the change was made. 

So to make continuous improvement permanent, it is necessary to maintain a continuous improvement culture in the organization and keep reinforcing the need for continuous improvement and change.

The plan should include the following steps, for instance: 

  • develop a good strategy for implementing change
  • involve the right people in implementing changes
  • decide on an approach to implementing changes
  • decide on how you will measure changes
  • Also, decide on who will be accountable for making changes
  • decide on how to evaluate your progress, and provide support for implementing the changes.

To be successful in implementing change, you need a comprehensive approach to problem-solving that includes developing a good strategy for making improvements, involving the right people in implementing changes, deciding on an approach to implementing changes, deciding what to change and how to make the changes, and creating a plan for implementing the changes.
