Define a realistic scope and ensure leadership is onboard
To enable transformation, we must work with a whole system at once.
To do so, we define the natural and immediate boundaries of the organisation, where we find it realistic to galvanise a substantial cadre of change-agents over a shorter period (12-18 months) to reach a tipping point and transform the culture.
The natural boundaries of the system, may be defined by the boundaries of a department or a function, a part of the value chain or a geographic location.
The only core condition for success is that the top leadership team within scope is willing to hold the space and become role models during the process.
