Culture’s Critical Role in Change Management

Culture’s Critical Role in Change Management | Change Management Resources | Scoop.it
A new survey shows that when executives fail to focus on culture, their change initiatives founder.

...it is easier to act your way into a new way of thinking than it is to think your way into a new way of acting.


  
________________________________


Excerpted:  ....those who work with and within their existing culture to change critical behaviors have more success than those who try to change their culture.

     

Said another way, it is easier to act your way into a new way of thinking than it is to think your way into a new way of acting.


....Overall, change initiatives are only adopted and sustained about half the time, our survey shows. But when companies tap into the energy and emotional commitment that are bound up in their cultures, change initiatives are far more sustainable.

Deb Nystrom, REVELN's insight:

More about Booz Allen's approach to change management within culture is in their report:    2013 Culture and Change:  Why Culture Matters and How it Makes Change Stick.  ~  D

Do they follow these 3 forms of commitment?
  • Want to = Affective

  • Have to = Continuance 

  • Ought to = Normative
    
Ron's (author & researcher) main line of inquiry will be "which of these forms of commitment result in the highest level of sustainable performance?"

The Classic Change Commitment Curve, Daryl Conner's 8 Stages | Change Thinking

The Classic Change Commitment Curve, Daryl Conner's 8 Stages  | Change Thinking | Change Management Resources | Scoop.it

Many imitators, one original (from the 80's.)


Daryl Conner's Change Commitment Curve has been copied in many places.  This post clarifies the orgins of this classic, and often copied, with a word tweak or two, model.


Another rendition of it is listed in this recent blog post focused on managing resistance via Daryl Conner's 1993 book:  Managing at the Speed of Change.


Daryl's research from long ago spotted consistent patterns.  His model highlights a fairly predictable path organization members must travel when managing their own anxiety around change.


This path typically moves along the timeline:

  • Uniformed Optimism (blissful ignorance)
  • Informed Pessimism (informed anguish)
  • Checking out
  • Overt (public)
  • Covert (private)
  • Hopeful Realism (coming to terms)
  • Informed Optimism (realistic support)
  • Completion
