Consulting: Universal Need
Beware! The track record for planned change is poor
- Only one-third of all major changes succeed; 67% fail.
- Only 23 percent of mergers make back their costs; 77%
- Downsizing works less than half the time; over 50% of
time it fails.
- 30 percent of reengineering projects succeed; 70% fail.
- Major new software applications succeed just 9% of the
time in large organizations; 91% fail.
Your concerns with your change projects are not unique. In
fact, they are shared with all change leaders everywhere.
And for good reason. Most change projects fail. A survey of
Fortune 1000 executives concluded that Resistance to Change
is the primary culprit.
Common mistakes executives make
Everyone gets hit by resistance. However, do not make
the common mistake most executives and change leaders
make of treating Resistance to Change as simply a Logical
Problem to be Solved with Rational Problem Solving. That will
only make matters worse.
There are both logic-based and emotion-based sources
of resistance to change. They each require diametrically opposed
methods for resolution. We will help you put the puzzle pieces
together to dissolve the resistance that is threatening the
success of your change project.
