Critical Ingredients for a Successful Change Initiative

You’ve been asked to:
•    Lead a large or small scale change initiative
•    Run a part of the change initiative or
•    Sponsor a change initiative.

If so, then you can’t miss this presentation.

Yesterday, change initiatives had predictable project plans and measurements. The workplace and market place were stable and predictable.  Employees were stretch but not overloaded and the company’s values embraced stable, predictable processes.

That was before.  Today, VUCA (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous) is the best description of the world of work.  Today, VUCA has become the “New Normal”.

So how do you step up and add value to the change initiative? Success means leading (without a title), connecting, making things happen and creating order out of chaos. If that’s what’s required how do measure results and what you need to do differently to make sure the essential building blocks are in place for success.
