Summary of Leading Successful Change
8 Keys to Making Change Work
Here’s a plan to follow when you know your organization must change.
Change experts Gregory P. Shea and Cassie A. Solomon have helped promote successful change in financial services, professional services, manufacturing, health care, telecom, information services, education and government. They discuss – sometimes a bit repetitively – the two essential requirements of organizational change and the “eight levers of change.” They clearly explain the best way for organizations to plan and manage change using their “work systems model,” which relies on creating change scenarios and demonstrating new behaviors. getAbstract recommends their approach to executives at companies of any size.
In this summary, you will learn
- Why most change initiatives fail,
- What two vital requirements organizational change demands,
- How to use the “work systems model,”
- How to use scenarios that show change, and
- How to foster the right new employee behaviors.
