Studies show that only about one in three change projects are able to achieve the desired outcomes. Stated differently, two-thirds of organizational change programs fail to deliver on expectations. There are reasons for such a questionable track record. There are, likewise, ways for an internal change consultant to avoid such pitfalls and to improve their batting average. This session will explain the difference between successful and unsuccessful change efforts; and identify specific practices that a change agent can use to improve the success ratio; and provide concrete action steps to ensure that results acheived are sustainable.
