Why Change Initiatives Fail and How to End up in the 25% that Succeed
A Day with Dr John J. Scherer
Everyone in business today knows that a high percentage of change initiatives fail to produce the intended result. This should be a startling fact, yet Big Five Consulting firms continue to:
Sell these projects to clients who pay huge fees for what happens — and for what doesn’t happen
Plan and carry them out the exact same way, regardless of the result, with little or no modification to their process
Act as if they don’t care.
Most surprising, all of this does not seem to bother Shareholders or C-Level execs, who never question the method or the ROI.
As a leadership and change-facilitator for the past 40 years working in many industries and across national cultures, this on-going pattern is hard for me to understand. It seems like it requires a truly forward-thinking and innovative executive to break out of the default and explore a more-successful — and ironically, a more proven — way doing things.
But that is exactly who will be in the room on March 12, 2019, when we gather at system worx for a day of exploring how to have your change initiatives end up in the 25% that succeed.
In dialogue with you, I intend to share my/our approach to major changes called ‘Changing the CHART + Changing the HEART, a summary of what to do — and not do — to increase the chances that your next change initiative will deliver as intended.
Anyone who is responsible for leading change.
