Change Insanity: Gambling the Organisation's Future

Updated: 7 days ago

Will your next future organisational change be successful?

“A sign of leadership insanity is repeating the same failed change implementation approach and expecting employee change adoption and organisational change success”

Our change history assessment© (CHA©) is used by change teams to review the outcomes of previous change programmes within their organisation. It provides organisational insights that can increase the likelihood of successful implementation through the analysis of lessons learned, mitigating previous weaknesses, and enhancing future success. It is important to learn from previous changes by performing structured analysis to identify negative issues and avoid repeating them on the next change. The insights from the CHA© will help to shape the change approach, planning, and resistance strategy.

I always look forward to seeing the answer to:

Question 28: Will future change management be successful?

On one occasion, the employees of the organisation scored 46.2%. This question provides fantastic insights that can help shape and make future organisational change successful. However, this requires the leadership team to articulate, model, and reinforce (AMI©) the next change. If they don’t, they might get better odds of change success by playing on the roulette wheel.

For future change success, analyse previous organisation change history, to mitigate previous weakness and enhance future success

 a2B Change Management Framework® (a2BCMF®) - Step #3: Assess Previous Change

The change history assessment© (CHA©) is performed during the 3rd Critical Organisational Change Implementation Step - Plan Phase:

A change history assessment© (CHA©) can provide organisational insights that can be used to mitigate previous weaknesses and enhance previous successes. Most organisational changes require key elements to be properly resourced and managed in order for change to be successful. These ten elements range from: People involvement, communications, and perceived future success.

Business Benefits: Assessing previous change history can provide data and insights as to what worked well, or not so well, in the past. This can provide guidance for future change implementations in order to improve adoption and benefits realisation.

Business Objective: Incorporating lessons learned from previous change history can:

Enhance Previous Change Success: Establish what worked well previously so it can be used to enhance future change implementation success.

Mitigate Previous Change Weaknesses: Establish what did not work well so the same mistakes are not repeated, mitigating previous implementation change weaknesses.

If an organisation has a history of change failure, future success will require a different approach
