It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is the most adaptable to change

Charles Darwin

The most human characteristic is resistance to change

Sir John Harvey Jones

This is a specialist training course for the people who are either leading of playing a significant part in or are in the midst of a change programme that has either stalled or is not delivering the anticipated results. If this is you then you are not alone. Research suggests that over 85% of change projects or programmes fail to realise the objectives agreed at the outset. Change projects are rife with problems. These are some of the most common causes:

  • Insufficiently compelling reason to change. Those that are impacted by the change whose commitment and action is required for the change to be successful are insufficiently inspired and/or active in making change happen
  • Insufficient active commitment from the leader or leaders of the organisation to make the decisions necessary to deliver the change
  • Insufficient, inadequate and inappropriate communication to all those involved to ensure those affected by the change are kept up-to-date with progress or lack of
  • Those charged with delivering the change agenda have insufficient resources (time, budget, people) and the right skill set to deliver the change
  • The obstacles to change that have been highlighted as priority risks are not handled. This includes key stakeholders who actively or passively block progress
  • Scepticism breeds when, despite the efforts at the outset, results are not forthcoming
  • Despite early success the programme becomes too ambitious and unwieldy
  • The changes fail to become embedded as business as usual via procedures, induction/training programmes and communication

Throughout the day the participants are invited to diagnose the root causes of the stalled campaign and consider the actions they will need to take in order to reenergise people and create the momentum necessary for change to happen. This course is focused on the people side of change i.e. deciding what has to happen to engage, enthuse and enrol people into a change campaign and once they are engaged keep them there! Time is set aside towards the conclusion of the day to consolidate their thoughts and plan the next steps.
