Course Outline

OVERVIEW
Change is one of the few things that are almost assured in your working life, regardless of the nature of your business or your position. Times change, and organizations as well as work processes must change with them. Even though this is the case, change is challenging – and if it's not done right, it might not have the impact you envision. In this course, you will learn methods to use in gathering success factors from the sponsors and owners of the change initiative, build skills in developing initial statements of scope to support change initiatives, learn how to identify key stakeholders and stakeholder groups who must change and those who must be considered for inclusion to achieve desired change, and learn how to assess the Three Keys to Sustainable Change – discomfort, vision, and skills.
TARGET AUDIENCE
Individuals taking on roles in change project management and others who want to develop or refine their skills for leading and sustaining change in an organization
DURATION
0.6 hours
OBJECTIVES

The Keys to Sustainable Change

  • recognize the key initial outputs of a change initiative
  • recognize the RACI status of stakeholder groups
  • recognize questions that assess the level of stakeholder discomfort and effectiveness of vision in relation to a proposed change effort
  • identify and sequence steps required to determine and assess the skills needed to support organizational change
  • predict the success of a change effort based on readiness measures
  • determine an organization's readiness for sustainable change


OVERVIEW
Failing to plan is planning to fail. Change project managers need to understand the role of the guiding coalition, and the appropriate level of involvement it has based on the rigor of the change project at hand. They also must understand how to assign levels of influence, assess, and interpret stakeholder input. Additionally, you will need to facilitate the creation of a code for change - outlining the behaviors that will support the change and, in some instances, how members of the organization will be held accountable. The correct application of a guiding coalition, stakeholder influence, and a code for change will help make your change effort succeed.

  • determine the level of rigor and type of guiding coalition required for a change project
  • recognize readiness for change using stakeholder inputs
  • recognize best practices for facilitating the construction of a collaborative code for change
  • plan for successful change


OVERVIEW
Change is hard. As a change leader, you'll bump up against resistance, doubt, discouragement, and apathy that can quickly erode any initial success. Understanding why change is so difficult for people gives you an edge for answering resistance, overcoming skills and information gaps, and moving the organization into a new way of thinking and behaving. |n In this course, you will learn how to tie the three keys to sustainable change – discomfort, vision, and skill – to the deployment of change in a manner that succeeds and lasts indefinitely in the future. Discover how to communicate, motivate, and monitor change in order to weave it permanently into the fabric of the organization. |
