Changing the Way We Lead Change

Change management as a key business capability has not kept up with the realities of today’s fast paced organizations. Most of change management methodologies were devised based on hierarchical or project management methods, where major changes took place sequentially, and rather infrequently.  Many executives complain about change management efforts taking too long and not producing the expected results. The missing link is to apply stronger rigor to how change is both implemented and adopted throughout the organization.
 
Ardeshir Mehran will share his recent change management methodology that delivers stronger results in a shorter cycle time.  His work is based on the insight gained from harnessing the power of leadership alignment and accelerated execution through collective ownership. He will review a change data visualization tool, the application of his "3 S’s" model for change adoption; Speed, Spread and Sustainability to track the “stickiness” of change.  He will also share best practices for “localizing” change throughout the organizations.
