PART IV: CHANGE MANAGEMENT - COMPONENTS OF THE STRENGTHEN YOUR CORE PLAN - WILLIAM EASTMAN
Many years ago I had the good fortune of working with John Kotter who is considered the foremost expert on organizational change. We took his book "The Heart of Change", which was an academic review of effective change strategies and created something for business owners - "Our Iceberg Is Melting".
One thought before we start, you need to review PART III and those 4 Episodes (57-60). That show covered the big issues and today we are going small. Also, the shows we covered this week in Finance (Episodes 61-64), Operations (Episodes 65-68), Customers (Episodes 69-72), and People (Episodes 73-76) provide the details contained in the change plan.
EPISODE 77: Summary
The following 8 Steps reflect how the companies that were able to make change work for them. I have used it many times over the last 18 years with my clients and companies.
EPISODE 78: Initiating the Change
Let's start with consolidating these 8 Steps into 3 Phases. The first is the prework you need to - as we covered last week in PART III: CHANGE MANAGEMENT - STRENGTHENING YOUR CORE PLAN.
EPISODE 79: The Burning Platform Team
The second phase is to build the team that is going to support the change. Having your people involved will ensure better thinking and commitment to make it happen. If you have few employees, they will be part of the Guiding Coalition and Action Teams. If you are alone - then you have the load. The steps don't change, just the dynamics.
EPISODE 80: The Plan
The third phase covers the last 4 steps - Empowering for Action, Generating Short-Term Wins, Consolidating and Accelerating Change, and the New Culture.
