As a leader of change, you will need not only to develop
strategies, but also to project what will happen to
various other parts of the system as a result. Whether
one begins at the onset of the planning process or is
trying to make mid-course corrections, there are key
questions to be addressed:
- How can we ensure that
what is planned will be well implemented and achieves
the original intention?
- What is the best way to start?
- How can we keep getting better at what we do and build
those improvements into subsequent plans?
- What would scale and sustainability look like?
- What steps can we build into our planning and
implementation to increase the likelihood of sustaining
the desired change and expanding its reach?
This handbook is designed to help you address these
key questions throughout the change process. It includes
six tools, a brief description of the underlying
concepts of each and suggestions on how to use the tools
and the resulting data. The tools are appropriate for
any change circumstance: examining the organization
internally, the external environment or even as a
self-assessment of what you need to do to carry out each
action step. pdf
