Accelerating Change

 Why Does Change Fail?

  • People aren't inspired by (or aware of!) the new vision
  • Too few leaders champion the change
  • Individuals do not see progress along the way
  • Change is suffocated by barriers and obstacles
  • False victories are declared
  • New changes do not become firmly anchored in the corporate culture

What Are The Impacts Of Failure?

  • Cost and time overruns
  • Poorly implemented strategies
  • Failure to actualize synergies and benefits
  • Loss of market share
  • Plummeting morale, commitment, and enthusiasm
  • Talent drain

How Do We Create Successful Change?

  • Generate and celebrate short-term wins
  • Explicitly anchor changes in the culture

What Are The Benefits?
