JLBC LEADING THROUGH CHALLENGES

JLBC Setting the pace

When orchestrating strategic change within an organization, you must consider timing carefully. If the rate of change is too slow, the process may run out of momentum; if it is too fast, you risk creating stress and burnout.

Aim for a sustainably fast pace at which your major initiatives will have started to produce measurable results within a year—even if the whole process is scheduled to take much longer. Steering significant organizational change is hard work: typically, there is a trough in visible results just at the point where you need the most effort and commitment from all stakeholders. Investors, in particular, may lose heart in this trough period, so they need to be regularly reminded of the benefits.

Plan in “quick wins” throughout the process of change—achievements that have high visibility but require little effort. Celebrate and publicize these successes, and drip-feed messages about how project milestones and results achieved so far are bringing the vision nearer to reality.
