Executing Change in the Organization

In today′s fast–paced environment, organizations put a premium on leaders, managers, and employees who can react and move quickly in response to changing conditions and pressures.

Executing Change in the Organization offers consultants and trainers a comprehensive toolkit for conducting workshops for executive leadership teams, project management teams, managers, and individual contributors. The four workshops are designed to help participants put in place the structural framework and tactical components needed to successfully execute change. The Executing Change in the Organization model can be used successfully for a variety of situations including incremental change, such as new business systems, functional refocus, and market demand for new levels of performance; or transformational change such as mergers and acquisitions, moving from product focus to service focus, and implementing new business models.

Executing Change in the Organization package includes an introduction and discussion of the role of the consultant, facilitation instructions, and Participant Workbook for each of the four workshops. The package also includes a wealth of assessments, surveys, exercises, templates, charts, and flow diagrams specifically developed for the four key audience groups who affect, lead, implement, and institutionalize change.

Executing Change in the Organization is the hands–on resource that will give consultants and trainers the competitive edge for driving change successfully within any organization.

Executing Change in the Organization incorporates nine overarching themes:

  • Providing structure and clarity

  • Assessing readiness, risk, and style

  • Planning and organizing the project

  • Measuring results

  • Adopting and localizing change

  • Viewing the landscape

  • Establishing the linkages

  • Examining the environment

  • Predicting the outcomes and success
