"successful change efforts in schools offer a sense of hopefulness that student learning can be improved through a genuine sense of community and teamwork that supports the implementation of new practices (relate). They also provide sustained learning to enable the acquisition of new habits of mind and behavior (repeat) and the development of new frameworks aligned with the innovation (reframe)."


We cannot sustain without relationships.

The Big Shift - How the world is changing and what business needs to do about it!

John Hagel explains in the first of a short series of videos, how the world is changing and what we need to do about it.  It links to his work with Deloitte's Center for the Edge, which conducts original research and develops substantive points of view for new corporate growth.

....so it not just that leaders need to need to change but businesses and organizations as well.  21st century leaders need to understand how these shifts (or the Big Shift as Hagel talks about it) are going to manifest themselves so they can either 'lead the change' or 'understand the changing context in which they must lead'.  Quite possibly both!

How to Set Productive Collaboration into Action

How to Set Productive Collaboration into Action | Business change | Scoop.it
Collaboration is essential for long-term innovation. Working together and sharing information enables employees to draw on expertise from the entire organization, avoid costly mistakes, and ultimately achieve a collective goal.

Yet many of today’s large companies still operate as siloed structures. While cubicle farms give a sense of efficiency and hierarchy, they prevent cross-pollination and dialogue across the enterprise. By design, silos prevent information from flowing outward; they discourage people from seeking out new ways to collaborate and build better ideas.

Diverging Conversations through Facilitation - YouTube

"Diverging Conversations through Facilitaton" is the title of a new book on the art of facilitation. Jan Lelie and Henri Haarmans (editors) have put together a very interesting number of practical cases combined with a number of clear theoretical essays on Facilitation. Well readable and very enlightening on the subject. A 'must read' for every facilitator and everyone who employs facilitators.
The preface written by Maureen Jenkins is used as a basis for this small illustrative video. "

Business Transformation: People. Process. Results.

Business transformation has taken hold across the broad corporate landscape, and there is a correlation between a formal process and transformation itself. Companies that have a formal process are more vigilant about assessing their business and operating models against their business strategy and are more active in transformation.

For this study, Forbes Insights, in association with KPMG, surveyed 910 executives at U.S.-based multinationals and banking or asset management firms. Out of 709 corporations, 90% of executives came from companies with revenues over $1 billion. Out of 201 banking or asset management firms, all had assets under management of at least $5 billion. 

Steve Bax's curator insight, October 15, 5:26 AM

Another very good scoop from Kenneth Mikkelsen here. Key 'take aways' for me are the reinforcement of some of the core principles of effective change within organisations. The research identifies the importance of elements such as: alignment of corporate culture, structure and early integration of metrics to the process. Although the shift is clearly to emergent rather than planned 'seismic' Kurt Lewin type change, the need for John Kotter's eight steps can still be seen in the issues from this recent study. There are some valuable findings on culture, decentralised companies and the need for collaboration across functions here too.

The success rate of organizational change initiatives

The success rate of organizational change initiatives | Business change | Scoop.it
In 1849, French journalist Jean-Baptise Alphonse Karr wrote what was to become a famous epigram:

Plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose – The more things change, the more they stay the same

Though Karr penned this with a satirical edge, his quotation holds true in today’s corporations. The more things change, the more they stay the same – because more than 70% of change initiatives fail, a figure so high it means that most change initiatives are doomed to failure from the start.

Nadella's answer was so stunningly off-base, it may well be career-defining. He quoted a male executive who said that the system works in the long run. He said that one of those "superpowers" women have was to have faith in the system and not ask for a raise. He suggested that he himself would reward and trust a woman more if she didn't raise a fuss. "That's good karma," he said. "That'll come back."

Effective risk management encourages innovation

Effective risk management encourages innovation | Business change | Scoop.it
Good risk management is imperative for managing change. It involves anticipating and diminishing threats; protecting sources of value. Good risk management enables an organisation to move forward, because the downside risks of change are contained; risk management provides a forwardlooking orientation. It allows organisations to focus their competencies on value creating activity.
David Hain's insight:

Innovation is not only about ideation.  You've got to pick the ones that create value at least risk.

Preach to the Choir to Catalyse Change!

Preach to the Choir to Catalyse Change! | Business change | Scoop.it
A catalyst model of change is about creating the conditions so people who want to change can connect with others like them to create purposeful choirs. Leadership is no longer about command and control or about moving human capital around the organizational chessboard. Leadership is about inspiring random collisions and connections in purposeful ways to solve real world problems. It’s about creating the conditions to catalyze engaged choirs both within and outside of the organization. A catalyst model of change isn’t about pushing ideas down trying to convert the uninterested masses it’s about pulling ideas up to find their choir. We need to catalyze self-organized choirs around the world enabled to explore and test transformational ideas and approaches at a scale equal to the scope of the social challenges we face. Go ahead and preach to the choir.

"Don’t waste time trying to convert those that don’t want to change, find people who want to change and preach to the choir"  ~ Saul Kaplan
