The Politics of Everything

Jun 21, 2022

Bev Andrews is a change management expert. For several years now, I have worked with and witnessed the rise of the change management function in a range of organizations – from utilities to banks and all kinds of businesses. Usually communicating change takes patience, time, and a lot of nuanced approaches to get it going.

Change management draws on theories from many disciplines, including psychology, behavioural science, engineering, and systems thinking. And there are many different models to choose from.  A central idea of all change management theories is that no change ever happens in isolation. In one way or another, change impacts the whole organization and all the people in it. But with good change management, you can encourage everyone to adapt to and embrace your new way of working. Sounds easy enough.


My guest Bev has devoted the past 20 years of her career to delivering business solutions across a broad range of services in a diverse set of industries. Bev has extensive experience in Organisational Management – managing, developing, and facilitating change to achieve organizational improvement and transformation.

During her career, Bev has worked within organizations of different shapes and sizes, including those shown below. Bringing this experience to her business now, ASPIRE Change Management, Bev continues to provide the highest level of practical and empowering change management support, training, and advice to Australian businesses. 

Unlike other consultancies, Bev’s company ASPIRE specializes only in change management.  They provide end-to-end change management, which includes strategy, planning, delivery, and capability development. Working strategically and tactically, ASPIRE leverages your processes and tools and engages your employees on the journey.

  3. How can a business know if it’s getting change management right?
  4. A Harvard Business Review found 81% of the projects with effective change management came in on or under budget, according to the study. When change management wasn't as effective, there was a clear negative fiscal impact. The Harvard Business Review suggests 60-70% of all the change initiatives undertaken in organizations fail and a 2015 McKinsey study found the same kind of figures. What common mistakes do you usually see that may interrupt how change managers can bring their best to an entity?
