An organization’s strategic vision drives internal change initiatives and the tactics it employs to react to market conditions. Change leaders ensure resources are spent wisely by driving work efforts documented in the plan, or as a response to lagging indicators of effectiveness. Leaders should focus on change efforts that have a direct impact on the strategic goals. Once the overall strategy is defined, change initiatives can be managed through formalized projects.
Change leaders strive to:
- Explore the characteristics of change (what is changing, degree of change, number of people impacted, who is impacted, timing, etc).
- Understand the context of the change (perceived need, prior experience, shared vision, competing initiatives, etc).
- Establish a vision of where the organization is headed.
