Diversity, inclusion and change

I have the opportunity to work with diversity, discrimination and equality in smaller and larger organizations. Working with diversity can be demanding and an effective and supportive methodology is needed. We find that the use of The Four Rooms of Change is a powerful way to kick-start the analysis with a high degree of participation. And the action planning also takes place with the whole system in the room!
The Four Rooms of Change is a theory that deals with change, with what happens with people and organizations in transition and with how they can influence the change process by taking responsibility for their emotions and actions. Four Rooms offers the popular concept of “Diversity and Inclusion ” a whole new …

Transformation and change is business as usual

KPMG has published the Transformation Survey. In it we can connect the dots.

Business transformation has taken hold across the broad corporate landscape, and there is a correlation between a formal process and transformation itself. Companies that have a formal process are more vigilant about assessing their business and operating models against their business strategy and are more active in transformation.
Thanks for scooping it up: Kenneth Mikkelsen at LeadershipABC.

Complexity – Looking at the World through Different Lenses

I can highly recommend Don Tapscott’s speech at the 5th Global Peter Drucker Forum in Vienna:

Don Tapscott is one of the world’s leading authorities on innovation, media, and the economic and social impact of technology and advises business and government leaders around the world. In 2011 Don was named one of the world’s most influential management thinkers by Thinkers50. He has authored or co-authored 14 widely read books including the 1992 best seller Paradigm Shift. His 1995 hit The Digital Economy changed thinking around the world about the transformational nature of the Internet and two years later he defined the Net Generation and the “digital divide” in Growing Up Digital. His 2000 work, Digital Capital, introduced seminal ideas like “the …

Change agent skills and character

Change management is strategy’s evil twin. To master both the strategic and the human side of a project, is what separates the good project managers from the best.
When strategies and changes are implemented we tend to call it projects. Being a change agent is to master the art of engaging and changing people’s behavior, in order to achieve business goals or political aims. The mark of a true project manager is a combination of excellent planning skills, and the ability to build and maintain healthy relationships – in order to achieve goals, while upholding trust and respect.

The Change Formula

Ever wished for a simple recipe for change?
Beckard and Harris (1987) developed a change formula listing the factors that needs to be in place for a successful change to be implemented.
The change formula: C=[D x V x FS]
·    C is the change that will occur
·    D is the level of dissatisfaction with the status quo
·    V is desirability of the proposed change – the end state or vision
·    FS is the first practical steps of the change
·    R is the resistance to change
The multiplication signs imply that if any one factor is not present – or zero – the equation will add up to zero and the change effort will fail.
Although this formula is attempting to put a very complex matter …

Democratic design for change

At the core of every successful change effort I would argue that we find a democratic nerve center – an effort to bring key stakeholders on board through heavy involvement and giving everyone else in the organization who is affected by the transition the invitation to get involved and make themselves heard.
All to often we limit the work with designing the change to a small group of “chosen ones” leaving the rest of the organization on hold until they are hit by the tsunami “roll out” – a phase in the process where it’s hard or even impossible to make a positive contribution. Doing this we miss out on the collective knowledge and creativity in the organization and looses the …

Project Management vs. Change Management

The interfaces between project management and change management overlap, and they are certainly interdependent when it comes to successfully delivering value by supporting the strategic initiatives of the business.
To put it roughly the project management team handles the technical and administrative side of the project, whereas the change management team handles the people side of the project.Project management is key when it comes to initiating, planning, executing and monitoring the projects activities and deliverables. They ensure a strong solution design backed up with detailed project plans.Change management prepares the organization for the project impact, manages the transition from how we do things today to how they will be done tomorrow – and puts special efforts into reinforcing and anchoring the change into the …

Kan alla vara med i arbetet med den nya strategin?

Allt för ofta är strategiutveckling något som sker på översta våningen och utan direktkontakt med verklighetens nyckfullhet. Strategierna blir konstruktioner med kort livslängd och när de väl är formulerade försvagas de av organisationens inneboende friktion i den efterföljande implementeringen.
En del företag experimenterar idag med snabbare, mer agila arbetssätt inom tjänste- och produktutveckling och några få vågar sig även på mer öppna processer inom strategiutveckling.
I denna (pdf) mycket intressanta artikel i the McKinsey Quarterly skriven av Michele Zanini och Arne Gast kan vi ta del av några intressanta exempel på hur man kan utveckla en mer social och verklighetsförankrad strategiprocess.
Ett litet utdrag från artikeln:
”In 2009, Wikimedia launched a special wiki—one dedicated to the organization’s own strategy. Over the next two years, …

Make change communication work

Change is a fact of life. In companies, it is a natural response to competition and shifts in the socio-economic environment and a route to gaining advantage and building business performance proactively. But, for change to be successful, managers need to ensure that employees both understand and support it.
Employees, on the other hand, have to actively seek information and contribute to a constructive dialogue on change implementation.
Change in companies happens when people choose to change behaviour and stick to this new behaviour until it is really implemented. Change communication is about motivating people to want and embrace the change. At the heart of change communication is the ability to motivate leaders and employees to engage in change management.
Badly planned and …

Projektledning av förändring – en paradox?

En tid präglad av intensiv förändringstakt ställer nya krav på projektledarskapet. Bland våra kunder uppmärksammar vi fler och fler projektledare som vittnar om att de upplever en förskjutning av projektledarrollen där kraven på klassisk projektstyrning bibehålls samtidigt som kraven på de mer processuella och mellanmänskliga kompetenser intensifieras. En förskjutning som blir tydligare i takt med att projekten mer och mer relaterar till organisatoriska förändringar.
Många projekt mynnar ut i någon form av organisatorisk förändring. Man kan kategorisera projekt och graden av organisatorisk förändring i nivåer:

Förnyelse – fri förändringsprocess – Projektet syftar till att skapa det nya utan större hänsyn till det befintliga. Fundamentala och existentiella grunder såväl som dynamiska delar som produkter, tjänster, metoder, strukturer och kulturer skapas. Projektet präglas av en …
