Any organization can move forward with small incremental changes, but building for the future in today’s rapidly evolving environment means taking bold chances and making insightful decisions.
A successful transformation delivers intended, significant and sustainable changes. And it is not easy to get right.
After the direction of travel is set, breaking down the plan into actionable priorities, setting the right pace and appropriate KPIs, empowering the owners of the priorities, putting in place a mechanism to cascade the seemingly daunting plan and building the momentum to mobilise the organisation are just some of the many elements in a transformation programme.
In addition to driving progress, do not under-estimate the X factor of the senior executives and the power of the influencers within your organisation. All these people hold the key to a successful transformation programme.
Delivering a transformation programme after some tough and uncertain time of a business has been a regular feature in my career in recent years. Do get in touch; happy to share about how we did it.
