This Harvard Business Review blog post summarises five questions that should be asked whenever you are planning a Change Programme:
- Where do we want to go?
- How ready are we to get started?
- What practical steps do we need to take?
- How do we manage the journey?
- How do we keep moving forward?
I felt they overlapped remarkably closely with the 5 requirements for successful change that I described in an earlier blog post (note this is the “5-box model” rather than the 4-box model”). The HBR article gives some US examples of businesses that have answered these five questions.
