- Change is constant
- The pace of change will increase
- Most change initiatives in organizations fail
For decades now, studies have shown that as many as 85% of all change initiatives fail. This is true in new technology implementation, organizational restructuring, mergers, business transformations, outsourcing, process improvement programs, or other types of change. Why?
The most common cause of failure in organizational change are the people issues such as lack of leadership, poor communication, politics, lack of buy-in, etc.
Yet, most of the invested energy, time, and money is in the technical solution, not in developing cultural acceptance. You see the problem? A good solution that is not accepted will fail. The key is cultural acceptance!
So, what would be the impact and value of…
- Understanding why people ‘resist’ change and what to do about it
- The ability to develop a sense of urgency for change
- Helping people develop a collective vision of success
- Defining and communicating crystal clear objectives about the change
- Having a clear and agreed upon scope a project to avoid scope creep
- Defining clear roles and responsibilities
- Identifying the key behaviors necessary to support the change
- Creating a clear message to communicate the change
- Identifying and influencing impacted stakeholders
