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 …

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 …

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 …

A minority can change the whole

Scientists at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute have found that when just 10 percent of the population holds an unshakable belief, the majority of the society will always adopt their belief. The findings were published in the July 22, 2011, online edition of the journal Physical Review E in an article titled “Social consensus through the influence of committed minorities.”
“When the number of committed opinion holders is under 10 percent, there is no progress in the spread of ideas throughout the system. ”It would literally take the amount of time comparable to the age of the universe for this size group to reach the majority,” said SCNARC Director Boleslaw Szymanski, the Claire and Roland Schmitt Distinguished Professor at Rensselaer. “Once that number …

Emergent change in Egypt

The Arab Spring is an amazing example of emergence in the process of change. This speech given by Riyaad Minty, Manager of Al Jazeera Network’s social media initiatives, shows how people using social media to connect and communicate develop the needed critical mass to successfully overthrow the government of Egypt.
Complexity theory and studies of complex adaptive systems tells us that the amount of connections between the agents or the parts is a critical factor enabling emergent change. In this speech Riyaad Minty tells us how Twitter together with Al Jazeera enabled (or facilitated) the Arab Spring.

For further reading I highly recommend Margreth Wheatly’s article on emergence and social innovations.

A sense of urgency

We may have top management support, a great team driving the change and a well equipped toolbox but it won’t help much if there’s no real sense of urgency.Often referred to as “The burning platform” it is the fuel that’s going to get people on all levels in the organization moving and keep going when the going get’s tough.As managers, it’s first of all our task to discover – not develop – where the true source of the “reason why”, our raison d’etre, is. And if it’s not really there, you better backtrack a step or two or prepare to push the car all the way home…So how do we raise the level of urgency? In my experience, there could be several …

Using emergence to take social innovations to scale

I have just rediscovered Margaret Wheatley’s work,  as I tend to do now and then. This article introduces how emergence as a change theory, offers methods and practices to accomplish systems-wide change.
