THE CHANGE AHEAD
FOUR CHALLENGES OF CHANGE
You have a reason to start the change: you are waiting for some benefits.
Do you know how to reach these benefits by defining and leading them?
The change takes place in everyone’s mind. Change planners and leaders should see the person behind the stakeholder group.
Does your change plan seem to be logic from the individual’s point of view?
In climbing the CRUX means the most difficult section of climbing or mountaineering route. If you can solve the CRUX, you should be able to finish the route.
It’s the same with change. The CRUX of Change is usually actions between the current state and the target state.
There is one more important part of change management. It’s the working hours needed to spend before the change is ready.
Do you have good practices to avoid the resource trap?
PHASES OF CHANGE PLANNING
Before you can effectively lead anything, you must have a clear picture of the change.
Change is always linked to the particular culture and circumstances. Before change planning it’s crucial to analyse the conditions of change.
Now you have a clear picture of the change and the circumstances where it will happen. You have now good conditions to start the change planning.
