Change the Way You Lead Change: Leadership Strategies That REALLY Work

Overview

"Popular wisdom suggests that about 80 percent of all change initiatives end in failure. More alarming still for top managers, a 2005 BusinessWeek survey of 1,087 corporate directors found that 31 percent of CEOs fired by their boards were removed because they mismanaged change - more than any other reason given. Why is this happening and why do we need another book purporting to have "the answer"?" "Herold and Fedor have spent the last ten years pursuing this question through a series of studies that have examined more than 300 organizational changes and over 8,000 individuals who have lived through them. They asked executives to think of an unsuccessful change initiative and to identify the key factors that were responsible for the failure. They found that, while almost all advice about organizational change focuses on a few steps applied to a single change, few people actually lived in a "one change at a time" environment; rather, they lived on a "roller coaster of change," with overlapping changes being driven by different events, led by different executives, and originating from different parts of the organization." In other words, change is never a stepwise or easily prescribed process. Rather, it is messy, complicated, and its outcomes are easily swayed by a host of factors. In this context, leaders need to develop and utilize realistic frameworks for organizational change. They need to implement a holistic change model that defines and justifies the proposed change and that takes account of both the abilities of those who will be asked to lead and carry out the change and the context in which the change is to occur.
