Clement Boye's curator insight, November 14, 2013 1:20 AM

La joie est un mot qui me passionne. il est sentiment, valeur, émotion état et intègre tout en lui , l'amour, la vie, la paix, l'estime de soi, le plaisir, le bonheur, la tendresse et la liste est sans fin, je suis fasciné

Eva Rider's curator insight, November 14, 2013 11:24 AM

There is much wisdom in this advice and a reminder to listen to our feelings, instincts, intuitions before tossing them out to join the herd.

Leading change can happen with passionate people - Kotter applied

Leading change can happen with passionate people - Kotter applied | Programme, Project and Change Management | Scoop.it

Kotter's 8 step process is applied in this case study example, happening now with NetApp.

  

NetApp’s staffer and post writer, Mercedes Adams, a 3rd year Guiding Coalition program manager describes her two year experience as a part of an advisory group, in this case named the guiding coalition team, to help accelerate change leadership. I heard Rob Salmon and John Kotter speak at the ACMP 2012 Global Change conference (described in other posts on this stream) regarding their transformation project in process.

  

Note:  Sometimes this approach creates a parallel organization, which can cause problems, and sometimes it's exactly what an organization needs.  Another approach is a collateral organization (temporary, ever changing ad hoc change groups.)  We'll see how the chips fall as Dr. Kotter's advisory team approach helps NetApp over the next few years.  ~  Deb

  

Excerpts:

  

in 2009, Rob Salmon and the Field Operations leadership team decided to pair NetApp’s winning culture with an innovative framework for successful transformation that leverages the urgency and passion of employees across the business.

In addition to the members of the Guiding Coalition, hundreds of volunteers, subject matter experts, and change leaders across Field Operations collaborate with the members to drive changes into the culture.

  

NetApp is a rapidly growing company which has thrived through major changes over its 20 year history.

  

The Executive Vice Chairman, Tom Mendoza has a video blog, Tom Talks.
