About ambitions, adaptability and execution power 

Many companies and organisations have great ambitions - a dream or vision, refining the strategy, improving the internal culture or implementing a new system. A lot of time and resources are invested in renewing and changing processes, systems and culture. 

The cycle is well-known: there is a need for transformation, an attractive perspective, plans are formed, working groups are formed, presentations are given and often external parties are hired to guide the desired change: Change management. And so the journey begins from point A - the current situation - to point B: the goal.


The only constant is poorly implemented change

However, actual results from many change processes are disappointing. Time and again, leading research confirms that in up to 80% of cases, a change process does not have the desired result. Despite impressive methods, step-by-step plans, visions and techniques. This high percentage of failed transformations has actually remained unchanged in the past 45 years. So it is not that the only constant factor is change, but rather that it is a poorly implemented change. And instead of ending up in point B, the organisation gets unfortunately stuck in point A’.


5 Success factors for Change

The reasons for this can be traced back to 5 critical aspects of organisational change that significantly increase the chances of success both before and during the process. These 5 success factors relate to Vision, Leadership, Adaptability, Power to Execute and Grip & insight:

• Do we have a clear vision and ‘real’ strategy? 
• Is our Leadership committed to execute? 
• Is our organisation sufficiently adaptable? Can we change? Are we aware of barriers & bottlenecks? 
• Do we have the power and the support to actually see it through & execute?
• And can we organise this in such a way that we keep on track and know when we are successful? 

Remember that in many cases, starting point A is in fact the unintended ending point A’ of a previous, unsuccessful transformation!
