Abolishing Myths: 7 Levers to Achieve High-Performance Culture

Abolishing Myths:  7 Levers to Achieve High-Performance Culture | Change Management Resources |

Culture is hot. ...we have observed a markedly increasing emphasis on culture.   Case studies are how to achieve sustaining transformational change via  Boston Consulting Group


Leaders ...want to know how to spark the behaviors that will deliver results during the transformation—and sustain them well beyond. 


Leaders trying to reshape their organization’s culture are asking: How can we break down silos and become more collaborative or innovative? Others, struggling to execute strategy, are wondering: How do we reconnect with our customers or adapt more proactively to the new regulatory environment?

Leaders overseeing a major transformation want to know how to spark the behaviors that will deliver results during the transformation—and sustain them well beyond.

Those involved with a postmerger integration grapple with how to align the two cultures with the new operating model—and reap the sought-after synergies.

And those simply seeking operating improvements often ask: How can we become more agile? Accelerate decision making? Embed an obsession for continuous improvement throughout the organization?

Deb Nystrom, REVELN's insight:

The Boston Group full article highlights a path through complexity, featuring, Corference Board style, a list of levers:  1) Leadership, 2) People and Development, 3) Performance Management, 4) Informal Interactions, 5) Organization Design, 6) Resources and Tools, 7) Values (beliefs, ideas, norms.)  

It reminds be very much of the venerable 7S McKinsey model that I've referenced for years that stands the test of time.  ~  D

Transformational and Culture change in business have become the focus on how to keep an Organisation on top of it's game.

John Wade: pragmatic support for law firm leaders's curator insight, September 29, 2013 5:23 PM

Some great insights into why some organisations are better able to implement and leverage change better than others.

Harish Maru's curator insight, March 6, 2014 8:17 PM

Culture in an organisation reflects the values of the society. For example in India society is paternalistic. In business context it will result in limiting some person or group's liberty or autonomy for their own good.


How an Indian business organisation leverage this value to achieve high performance? It will be futile to go against this social norm.

Why Traditional Business Transformation Don't Work, & A New Co-Creative Model - Innovation Playground

Why Traditional Business Transformation Don't Work, &  A New Co-Creative Model - Innovation Playground | Change Management Resources |

Over 60% of companies out there are operating from a dated business model. 20% are operating with a mental model that had expired more than 5 years ago.

Business transformation traditionally takes the form of unfreezing to refreezing and bridging the gaps in capabilities, mindset and performance.

The transformation model featured in this blog post by Idris Mootee has a strong future orientation, uses Design Thinking principles, and features a tangible, collaborative co-creation process.

A high-level view is captured by the following formula: Successful Brand-Driven Business Transformation = P+N+C+M+I+F

P = Develop a perspective of the future(s) informed by strategic foresights (both customer and technology contexts) and deep organizational insights;

N = Develop a co-created brand narrative that inspired people re: possibilities and purpose at the core of the story;

C = Develop a compelling case for the need for change developed and shared by all executives, investors, employees and B2B business partners;

M = Map - Develop a practical means to tie innovation (roadmap) and projects to the desired future(s);

I = Design an incentive systems that are aligned to identify and encourage appropriate behaviors compatible with the desired future;

F = Develop feedback mechanism for each stage of the process to monitor progress and provide input for continuous improvement.

Kotter Enhancement - Phase 2 : Change Management Success

Kotter Enhancement - Phase 2 : Change Management Success | Change Management Resources |

Author Ron Koller describes Kotter's classic article on Why Transformation Efforts Fail provided his "8 Errors" which became "8 Steps."  Standing by themselves, these 8 steps have not curbed the high failure rate.  

However, the steps can add value and lead to CHANGE SUCCESS if enhanced.  This post describes the enhancement necessary to turn Kotter's Step 2 into a winner.  It is based on 20 years of experience with change management success & a few change management failures.  I hope you find it helpful.

Here's a nugget from the full post:

A truly representative advisory group is more powerful than you think.  They are able to use their role as "representatives" to deliver realistic news to the leadership team regarding the employee and middle manager perspective of the change initiative.  

Deb Nystrom, REVELN's insight:

Large group methods and a Whole-Scale change perspective make a SIGNIFCANT difference in the results.  ~  D
