Managing Change

Business transformation goes beyond strategic planning and project management, yet that is where many efforts stop short or fail. They do a good job of laying out intentions. But, for a constantly shifting playing field you need people to drive the change, keeping their eye on the ball as they adapt to new circumstances.

Your drivers are your change leadership team, champions, and ambassadors.  Each of these has a different role, pushing the agenda forward. I detail who they are and how they work together in Chapter 3 of Getting Change Right.

You must effectively master the art of turning every supporter into a change agent who owns the way forward.  This requires new management and leadership competencies, built around knowing how to involve and spark enthusiasm in the right people appropriately and effectively. These are not the standard competencies taught in most programs, but those specifically geared to getting change right.
