Transformation projects, regardless of purpose or ambitions, have a tendency to miss initial targets defined. Often a lot of effort is invested in analyzing and designing change efforts, communicating a vision for new ways-of-working (involving lean, OpEx or other transformational buzz words) but when it comes to execution and reaping the benefits a large majority of projects fail to deliver. Managers get caught up in daily challenges, leadership shift focus to the next big improvement program and consultants have already left the building. Short-term focus on results will always lead to transformation programs missing to deliver desired improvements, and lead to even more frustration within the organization.
So how do you counter-act this? As all change initiatives involving human beings it is all about perseverance and making sure that the idea you want to spread in an organization is consistent at all levels.
Pretty simple and straight-forward guidelines, but still challenging to follow during a long transformation journey. But if you manage to stick to these simple advices your success rate will increase significantly.
