Why Experimenting the Winning Combination can be disastrous?

Change is the necessary phenomenon for any business. Perhaps, this is the reason why it is necessary for the business owners to be careful regarding while implementing the change in strategy. This article, will guide you through the complete procedure for the effective Change management process.

Why Experimenting the Winning Combination can be disastrous?

This is an era of continuous innovation. Many startups tend to constantly innovate and experiment their ongoing strategies. It is good as far as it is benefitting the business. However, there are few instances where a complete change in the strategy has resulted in the failure of the business. Therefore, while implementing the new strategy in the business, the business owners shall stay careful about it.

If the things are going smoother, they are already in your favor. At such crucial stage, a major change can overturn the things against you. Hence, the business personnel shall implement the change if and only if it makes a constructive impact on the business.

What to do prior to the implementation of the change?

The Competitor Analysis is perhaps the simplest and cost-effective strategy of working on a change. Your rivals might have tried many strategies for the success of their business. It is easy to get their data and results from the web. This will prevent yourselves from experimenting with your own business.

If any strategy of your rival is getting successful, then in such case you shouldn't resist yourself from adopting it. Whereas, the competitor's mistakes are the best things that you can learn from. A major change in your own strategy not only disrupts your workforce but also affects the performance of your business as a whole.

How to implement the change in the strategy?

Completly reversing the strategy which you are currently following and which is getting you success can make a major impact (either positive or negative) on your business. Thus, one shall not implement the change as a whole. But, should implement it step by step. In the industry of public relations, it is a crucial step. Any major disruption can take away your target audience from you!

Prior the implementation of the change in strategy. One can learn the lessons from the businesses under the same niche. If the change you are opting for is new, then you shall go through the whole procedure of change management and its implementation.

As stated, one shall measure up the possible impacts that the change can make on the strategy. Furthermore, it is necessary that the change is scalable and one shall discuss the predictions with the fellow teammates. Gathering a public opinion is also a good idea if your industry is dependent on the large audience base.

Measuring the impact of Change in Strategy

After the successful implementation of the change in the strategy, you shall test and compare it with your other strategies. For this, it is utmost necessary for you to have all the necessary data and statistics. However, we would recommend you to compare the strategies only after a relevant period of time of the implementation. Because calculating and comparing it too early can provide imprecise data. Hence, you should wait and then calculate so as to get the accurate data.

What's more, it is essential to consider some factors while measuring the change. Such as, checking whether the impact is due to earlier strategy or because of the new one? You should also take a note of the both positive as well as the negative aspects of change while measuring the impact of change.


In the end, I would just like to recommend. If your business is going in a good flow, it is not a good idea to disrupt it with anything. Let it go with the flow, unless and until it stops paying back.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.
