The Elements of Sustainable Change

One of the key goals of most organization’s is the ability to sustain beneficial change. When we deconstruct sustainable change we are left with five key areas:

Leadership and Management: know what to change and when to change (your leadership style and your processes)
Communication: understand what medias to use, how to use them and at what frequency.
Change Dynamics: know what to expect when those affected by the change start the process.
Risk Identification: understand what could go wrong and what you are going to do about it proactively.
Project Management: know who is going to do which step and when, during the implementation of the change.

The battle to insure that our organization understands and apply each of these elements is the challenge we face. When these areas have been addressed with your change strategies, you’ll be well on your way to the maximum return on investment your project can attain.
