These are a handy review of change management approaches and thinking.   The first infographic, for example, offers 7 basic change management questions, yet helpfully puts them in context as "only a 1/3 of excellent global companies remain excellent for decades" and "when organizations try to transform themselves, even fewer succeed."  ~  Deb

Experiment with Organizational Change Before Going All In

Experiment with Organizational Change Before Going All In | Programme, Project and Change Management | Scoop.it
Your intuition is never enough.

Harry Cannon's insight:

How do you know your changes will work as intended?

more...
Karl Wabst's curator insight, October 13, 2014 5:30 PM

Many companies do not have a formal change process.

 

Mucking about with too many moving parts at once is a sure way to make things worse, rather than better. There is no way to prove a caused z, if you change d, e, f, and g at the same time.

 

When it all goes wrong, employees and management is left with scars and resistance to additional change. Worse, investors may lose faith in management’s ability to manage change.

 

Read a book on experiment design before launching a change project. After that, most of this article will be common sense.
