Weekly Tip Thirty Two

A Formula For Change Management


Think of a change you are wanting to introduce. Apply the following formula to it:

Allocate up to 10 points to each ingredient (1 = Low; 10 = Extremely High).

 

NEED X DESIRE X CAPACITY = SCALE OF SUCCESS
(10) X (10) X (10) = (1000 MAX.)

 

Need

=

The degree of the need to change driven either by “pain” or “gain”.

 

Not only must there be an awareness of the need to change there must be a senses of the importance of that need.

Desire  

=

The will or motivation to change.  A need can exist but for one reason or another the motivation to tackle the change and make it happen might not exist.  Desire can be driven by fear (a problem must be resolved if we are to survive) or feast (we can do a lot better than we are at present).

Capacity 

=

The resources (people, financial, systems, equipment, premises etc). we can bring into play that will deliver the desired change.  Or, the resources that the organisation can acquire/draw on from elsewhere (and which it can afford).

Scale of Success 

=

A mark out of 1000 which will predict your likely scale of success.

Under 500 be cautious.  Where do you need to do more work to increase the likelihood of success?  Over 500 - on which area do you need to do more work? 

 

Use the formula to analyse previous successful and unsuccessful change initiatives.  What
caused you to fail or succeed in addition to the above?
