2,000 Executives Weighed In On Embracing Change. These 7 Keys Were Most Important

2,000 Executives Weighed In On Embracing Change. These 7 Keys Were Most Important | Good News For A Change | Scoop.it
Through their research, McKinsey studied the organizations that scored the highest and found these seven traits of "good implementers."

1. Ownership and commitment to change.
If you're going to have a shot at sustaining change, you'll have to assign clear, organization-wide ownership. This includes every department at every level across the organization. Although it's a tedious process, ensuring that everyone has a role and is a part of the big picture is vital to driving commitment.

2. A prioritized set of changes.
Tackling too many changes at once will bog down your organizations and lead to employee burnout. An operational or strategy shift doesn't happen overnight.

It can take months if not years before the benefits of organizational change are realized. To streamline the process and save employee's mental bandwidth, roll out a prioritized list of changes in succession.
