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 …

The end of competitive advantage

Many companies struggle to find their competitive advantage in their market as a part of the strategy formulation process. It has been the cornerstone of strategy since the day Professor Michael Porter described it in his 1979 article and launched the concept of sustainable competitive advantage.
Now, Professor McGrath says, “Strategy is stuck”.
Finding a favorable position in a well-defined industry and then exploiting a long-term competitive advantage in that position is not working anymore. The reason is that a position and its advantages are transient in the fast changing market of today. “We need to base our strategies on a new set of assumptions”, Professor McGrath continues.

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 …

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.

The Fun Theory

Change management is all about activating hidden ressources within the system in order to change behaviours. Play and fun is one of powerful way of doing it which this commercial from VW(or actually DDB Stockholm) visualizes.

Emergence – Complexity from Simplicity (1 of 2)

Emergent complexity can arise from simple interactions between agents following rules. The complexity that arises is suprising and challenges our assumptions about whether order comes from the top or the bottom.
