Best Practice? Who Says?

Best Practice? Who Says? | Leadership Change & the Future | Scoop.it

Warren Norton's insight:

The topic of 'Best Practice' has been a bugbear of mine for years.  As I see it, those using Best Practice, are following somone else.  The questions arise, "Does their BP suit our culture, style and needs?", "If we model ourselves on them will we ever be better than them?" and "What happens if they keep getting better - won't we always be following?".

Lot of sense here...I always think "good practice" is better, if we have to use the term.

John Michel's curator insight, July 13, 2013 9:37 AM

Despite the fact that world knowledge is accelerating – it’s doubling at the rate of about once per year – many have forgotten to put on their “thinking caps.”

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, July 13, 2013 1:19 PM

Best practice is best practice in one context, but not all. It provide some insight but we need to figure out what applies and what does not in a new context. Education, for example, uses the best practice principle and it is a mess.

Spot on. Sometimes employees really wish to take part and strongly believe in change effort but simply do not because they cannot. There is no time - or the change is not the priority. You need actual time put aside to be able to understand change and contribute to it - change leaders need this as well. Do have time budgeted for them on continuous basis as well. If you get the needed time to absorb the change you are more likely to dare, even if it means try and fail. Leadership showing they allocate time sends an important message. They communicate, make the effort to lead by example and make sure the early adopters are encouraged and given time to help others. Being active in bringing in change feels great. But not if it means too many sacrifices and impacts your personal life.
