Keys to Making Change Real

Real change is change that makes a difference and is sustainable or regenerative over time. There are 5 major keys to making change real including:

◾ A clear and compelling case to be made for why the change is essential for the future of the organization
◾ A clear and compelling vision for the future state of the organization that engages both the head and heart
◾ Ownership and commitment to the change from a critical mass of key stakeholders, both within and outside the organization
◾ A robust roadmap for moving to the vision that usually encompasses changes in values, systems, processes, and behaviors
◾ Honest and transparent truth-telling about the gap between current reality and the vision; this allows for both celebration of successes and ongoing recalibration of the change roadmap

Given the above, creating change needs to be approached with a comprehensive systems perspective that accounts for all of these elements. And to help with all of this, most organizations need assistance.
Why the Consultant Matters

As all know who attempt to create change, it is rarely easy to accomplish on one’s own. In one’s attempt to achieve that which is truly vital, it is all too easy to get off track and be distracted by the tyranny of the urgent. When setbacks occur—and these can be predicted in any major change effort—there can be great value in having support in place to help absorb the lessons and make the needed adjustments. And there can also be great value in having someone who has been through the change process and brings a level of clarity and understanding to the elements that make difference between real change and disappointment. But to provide that support requires someone with a unique set of skills and experience.
