Strategies for Change
Mt. Everest isn’t scaled in a day. It takes months and months of training adn planning. Once the climb does start, the climbers certainly don’t climb the entire thing in one day. They climb a bit each day and rest at camps along the way to regain strength for the next push. The same concept holds true in change efforts. We can’t accomplish the entire goal in one day. To keep up momentum and help make the challenge more palatable we must set up a series of short term goals, much like stepping stones, that will help us achieve our long term change goal.
Specific questions or items to address:
Read Step 6 “Create Short-Term Wins” and Step 7 “Don’t Let Up” from Kotter and Cohen’s The Heart of Change. First, review the feedback from your instructor on Part 6. Use any new information you gained from the discussion and feedback from your instructor to revise and improve Part 6 of your project. Next, compile Part 7 of your project, explaining the short term wins you can facilitate for your team. Use the exercise on in your reading to compile the first portion of Part 7, answering the questions provided in the exercise. You may find the area at the end of Step 6 under the “Create Short-Term Wins” header helpful in reviewing the key points of what to do and not do when setting short term goals. Be sure your paper touches on the key elements of each as they pertain to your organization.
Next explain what you will do to help ensure your change efforts don’t fade when you have accomplished your goals. How will you help prevent burn out? How will you help maintain the change once it’s implemented? You may find the area at the end of Step 7 under the “Don’t Let Up” header helpful in reviewing the key points of what to do and not do when not letting up on the change effort. Be sure your paper touches on the key elements of each as they pertain to your organization.
Be sure to include at least three scholarly references to support your assertions written in your own words, make sure that there are multiple paraphrased citations one each paragraph. Do not copy word for word from the course text or any other sources. Your submission this week is Part 7 of the final project.
