Organizational Change Management: Cultural Fit > Victor M. Font Jr. | Programme, project and change management | Scoop.it
To fully realize a change management strategy, make sure the change fits your culture. You’ll also need detailed reinforcement and communication plans. Cultural fit is as individual as companies themselves. Every organization has its own variety of cultures and sub-cultures. Most businesses establish a target company-wide culture through their mission statement, vision, values and leader …

Navigating Change: How CFOs Can Effectively Drive Transformation

Navigating Change: How CFOs Can Effectively Drive Transformation | Programme, project and change management | Scoop.it

Today’s CFOs are increasingly required to partner with CEOs to drive transformations in their organizations. Indeed, a previous Deloitte CFO Signals™ survey of CFOs from major North American companies found that on average CFOs aspire to spend about 60% of their time as a catalyst for change and a strategist in their organizations.⊃1;

 

Yet, many CFOs who aspire to the catalyst role are often ill equipped to go beyond the numbers and effectively drive organization-wide change that improves future company performance. This excerpt from Deloitte’s CFO Insights examines sources of resistance to change and provides some practical tools for CFOs to diagnose and navigate change efforts more effectively...

Change is like an iceberg. It is futile to keep pushing against what is above the surface – the things we can see and control directly, such as rules, policies and procedures. Shifting the volume and weight of what lies below the surface – our habits, attitudes, beliefs and values – is the real secret to making change happen.

The truth about change

The truth about change | Programme, project and change management | Scoop.it
The reason change so often fails is that we resist letting go of old ideas and beliefs. But you cannot change and remain the same. Change means the letting go of the old and encouraging something new to develop. And that's as true for organizations as it is for individuals.
