Setting Up a Responsibility Matrix: 4 Steps

Incorporate the responsibility matrix in the project rules. 
The responsibility matrix becomes part of the project rules, which means that once it is accepted, all changes must be approved by those who approved the original version. The advantage to this change management process is that the
project manager is always left with a written document to refer to in the event of a dispute... More

Change Defined

"Change is the window through which the future enters your life." It's all around you, in many types and shapes. You can bring it about yourself or it can come in ways.

Jack Welch's 5 Strategic Questions   

Why Change Management?

"The future is coming so fast, we can't possibly predict it;
we can only learn to respond quickly." 
~ Steven Kerr

You can bring the change about yourself or it can come in ways that give you little choice about its what, when, and how. Fighting against change slow it down or divert it, but it won't stop it however. If you wish to succeed in this rapidly changing new world "you must learn to look on change as a friend – one who presents you with an opportunity for growth and improvement."9

The rate of change in today's world is constantly increasing. Everything that exists is getting old, wearing out and should be replaced. "Revolutionary technologies, consolidation, well-funded new competition, unpredictable customers, and a quickening in the pace of change hurled unfamiliar conditions at management."7

New Survival Strategies

In today's tidal wave of global economic, technological, and social change, that name of the game for you and your organization is survival.

If you are going to withstand relentless and constantly growing global competition, you need to be different and radically change the way of doing business. You need to create a new management model, switch from management to leadership, manage change, build trust, drive out fear of failure and create productive partnerships in which everyone can offer their unique knowledge and talents. If you know how to help your organization to do this, you can make a decisive difference... More

Anticipate Change

Being able to anticipate that which is likely to occur in the nearest or remote future gives you an edge over others who simply go along with whatever happens... More



Harness the Power of Change

Discontinuities of the new rapidly changing economy offer unlimited opportunities to those who can grasp them. For truly adaptive firms, a rapidly changing environment becomes a strategic advantage.

Understand that change in never over. See your organization as a winning team of rafters that strives to win a race in white waters of a rough river. Embark on your brave 'Change Management' boat and ride the waves of change that come relentlessly from different directions in different forms.

Learning SWOT Questions

Change Before You Have To

Deal with change in a proactive manner. Success in business doesn't come from feeling comfortable. In today's technology-driven world, business life cycles have accelerated exponentially. The challenge is to keep a step ahead of changing market conditions, new technologies and human resources issues... More

A Clue to Successful Change Management

If you wish to manage change effectively, you need to understand that the way people behave is a balancing act – they balance the forces that act upon them. Some of these forces are trying to get people to change their behavior and others are trying to restrain or limit that change.

Look at your own experience: at times you've fought against change and there have been circumstances where you've accepted it willingly and with enthusiasm.

"When you've accepted change it was usually because you believed that what was to come was more attractive and interesting than what you had. This gives you a clue to how you can manage change successfully," says Phil Baguley, the author of Performance Management.

Why Change Fails: 8 Common Errors

Create Change for Improvement and Competitive Advantage

Change creates opportunities, but only for those who recognize and seize them.

Yet, discovering and seizing an opportunity is not enough. You must experiment with various options, ask learning SWOT questions, adapt strategies and keep innovating this way. Simulation games, such as Innovation Football, are to help you prepare to win and exceed the initially desired results... More

You have a choice of instruments to motivate your people to embrace change. Performance-incentive levers are especially useful in driving those who lack direction or initiative. You may also encourage employee feedback on where and how the company can take corrective action and reward employees for their contribution... More

How To Overcome Resistance to Change: Kore 10 Tips

Keep People In The Know

MAKE decision, NAKE decision.

"Transformational leaders empower others by keeping them "in the know," by keeping them fully informed on everything that effects their jobs," says Brian Tracy. "People want and need to feel that they are “insiders,” that they are aware of everything that is going on. There is nothing so demoralizing to a staff member than to be kept in the dark about their work and what is going on in the company."... More
