Five Actions for Organizational Change

Hal, over at Reforming Project Management, posts this entry on Five Necessary Actions for Organizational Change

  1. Be clear why change is necessary in terms that make sense to the individuals.
  2. Declare an initial set of standards for measuring performance and get agreement that people will set out to perform to those standards.
  3. Show how it is done.
  4. Measure, acknowledge, reward new behavior, and be clear on the consequences.
  5. Work with them on improving.
