To bring about an entirely different approach, starting immediately.

 

These culture critiques are as common as complaints about the weather — and about as effective. How frequently have you seen high-minded aspirations to “change the culture” actually manage to modify the way that people behave and the way in which they work? And how often have you seen noticeable long-term improvements?

Seven Pitfalls to Avoid During Organizational Transformation

Seven Pitfalls to Avoid During Organizational Transformation | retail & Business topics | Scoop.it

leaders and their organizations suffer from fear of failure and practiced incumbency, especially when embarking on an ambitious change initiative.
 
The change journey is fraught with unknowns and the unexpected. Orchestrating organizational transformation in any large company is like launching a rocket into space. Much goes into preparations to be successful, but unforeseen factors like weather or wind pressure can affect the launch and flight path. A multitude of factors can misdirect the change program, resulting in delays, crashes, or becoming lost in orbit.
