** *Institutionalizing Change Management
/ Module 1/* **

 

Over the last decade, the discipline of change management has emerged and
evolved. What was once an ad hoc, after-the-fact approach occasionally
accompanied by a communications plan or training plan has been replaced by
holistic, structured processes with complete toolsets for addressing change
management at the individual and organizational levels. The result of
improved change management has been greater success at delivering
objectives on time and on budget.

Now, leading organizations are taking the next step in the journey,
shifting their focus from project-by-project application toward
*institutionalizing change management practices, processes, capabilities
and competencies*. Instead of addressing change management one project
after another, these organizations are investing time, energy and resources
to build organizational change management capabilities and competencies.
Prosci calls this effort *Enterprise Change Management (ECM)*, the
structured and intentional deployment of change management across and
throughout an organization. With Enterprise Change Management, effectively
managing the people side of change becomes more than a business practice;
it becomes a core competency, competitive differentiator and cultural value
of the organization.

Institutionalizing change management takes a *concerted effort*. It
requires resources, budget, time and commitment. It requires treating and
managing "institutionalizing change management" *as a project * and *as a
change*. It is not enough to simply apply change management over and over;
there must be a fundamental shift and charter to make great change
management the norm. But when this shift occurs, change initiatives are
more successful and the organization as a whole achieves greater financial
and strategic success. Prosci is introducing

Institutional syndrome - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

** Institutional syndrome **

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

/Institutionalization can also mean voluntary or involuntary
commitment, the process of committing someone to a facility./

These walls are funny. First you hate them, then you get used to them.
After long enough, you get so you depend on them. That's
"institutionalized."

"Red" Redding (played by Morgan Freeman), /The Shawshank Redemption/

In clinical and abnormal psychology, *institutional syndrome* refers to
deficits or disabilities in social and life skills, which develop after a
person has spent a long period living in mental hospitals, prisons, or
other remote institutions. In other words, individuals in institutions may
be deprived (whether unintentionally or not) of independence and of
responsibility, to the point that once they return to "outside life" they
are often unable to manage many of its demands;^[1]^[2] it has also been
argued that institutionalized individuals become psychologically more prone
to mental health problems.^[3]

The term /institutionalization/ can both be used to the process of
committing an individual to a mental hospital or prison or to institutional
syndrome; thus the phrase "X is institutionalized" may mean either that X
has been placed in an institution, or that X is suffering the psychological
effects of having been in an institution for an extended period of time.

In Europe and North America, the trend of putting the mentally ill into
mental hospitals began as early as the 17th century,^[4] and hospitals
often focused more on "restraining" or controlling inmates than on curing
them,^[5] although hospital conditions improved somewhat with movements for
human treatment, such as moral management
