Kotter Enhancement - Phase 2 : Change Management Success

Kotter Enhancement - Phase 2 : Change Management Success | Change Management Resources | Scoop.it

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:

Excerpted:

   

Leaders committed to social change increasingly recognize the importance of “getting the whole system in the room.”   This means:  


  1. identifying the diverse stakeholders who impact and are affected by a problem
  2. creating forums where they can meet and share their respective points of view.

   

There are many approaches to bringing such people together, including Future Search, the World Café, and Open Space.


We call these approaches acting systemically because they facilitate communication among a wide range of stakeholders who might not have previously spoken or listened to each other.

  

...stakeholders also have individual commitments that often run counter to their espoused collective commitment.

  

...thinking systemically, people ...begin to see how they unwittingly undermine their own best intentions through their short-term actions.

  

They are moved to consider the question, “What might we have to give up as an individual organization in order to serve the system as a whole?”

  

Three options are listed in the blog post including this provocative example:

  

They might streamline or even close their own organization and shift its services to other organizations in the system who are better positioned to deliver them.
