Current State – Pressures The people in the CO are currently working under the Current State – Pressures The people in the CO are currently working under the influence of a series of pressures. Staff perception of change is key to the success of change initiatives. Addressing these as part of the transition activities will assist in achieving a smooth transition to a regional structure after the removal of Title II funding. **Input from change management survey (almost 30 managers) in Honduras and from interviews with over 10 management level staff Sources of Current Pressure Description of Impact Regionalization • • • Undefined timeline and milestones for the overall process Timeline and activities that do exist are not communicated well Unclear transitional leadership Unclear understanding of regional roles (interaction and handoffs) Perception that communicated benefits of regionalization are not being realized ( ie. cost savings, attracting donors, etc) Perception that regional structure removes financial support from the COs Perception that regional structure delays operative process in the CO Causes staff to question how and where they fit in the organization’s future Increases day to day workload on staff Instills fear about future job security, some people leaving organisation Dependent on the rest of the region for activities; Long decision making process Removal of Title II funding • Generates anxiety about the future and image of CARE. Historically, Title II funding had been as high as 75% of the CO budget. • Anxiety over poverty reduction for beneficiaries in areas where CARE will no longer be working. • Unclear how costs will be covered after the funding is removed Large concurrent initiatives (Regionalization, Title II, new strategy, etc) • • • Budget Constraints • Reduced satisfaction with employee benefits because of long wait for a minimal salary increase and the removal of employee bonus • Decreases staff morale and resilience • Reduces career development opportunities because of lack of funding for training 10 • Generates anxiety about the CO’s financial situation © 2006 Accenture. All rights reserved. Many leads for many efforts; confusion around who has the answers Perception of unreachable leadership Decision makers and decision making process is not clear Priorities are not clear Requires proactive dependency management to ensure ongoing integration Dilutes the perceived importance of change initiatives
