Only 34% of planned changes meet leaders’ expectations and 50% fail. You know these statistics because, in spite of many “transformation” projects, they haven’t changed across industries and time.
Why does culture continue to make changes difficult? Aren’t new processes, structures, training, and leaders’ requests for agility, innovation, transparency, customer-focus, and empowered action, enough? What about all the investments you’ve made in “change management” activities and consultants?
The rubber has met the road, and the deep work of real transformation must now begin. It benefits from some of the tools of change management, but transformation is not something you do to people or the enterprise. It is there to unleash and can’t be “managed.”
McLagan has the practical and recognized thought leadership expertise to support both organizational and individual transformation. The secret is to grow transformation as a core capability – built into, not onto the enterprise. This requires a more ecological view of power, role-differentiation, problem-solving, and learning.
Transformation in society, supply chains, businesses, and people is the existential challenge of our time. It calls on all participants to be self-empowered, open to change and learning, and conscious about their use of power with others. And it calls for leaders who can transform themselves with their enterprises.
McLagan will help you unleash this kind of deep change by helping everyone — leaders and team members — to be conscious and competent participants in their own and the organization’s ongoing evolution.
