I have been meaning to tackle this issue for some while now, because I have to admit that I do not fully comprehend the concept “organisational culture change,” so I am using it as a bit of a learning exercise. I have also seen a few articles on the subject of late and I wanted […]
My article called 70% of Change Management Initiatives Fail–REALLY? has now hit over 5950 views along with 66 Likes and 21 Comments on LinkedIn. In the main, this failure rate stems from none other than McKinsey and Company who since 2006 have surveyed some 6,800 “CEO’s and senior executives” who had experienced a significant performance transformation […]
Queen sang … We are the champions, my friends, and we’ll keep on fighting ’til the end. We are the champions, we are the champions, no time for losers, ’cause… A fitting anthem for Change Champions I think which is what this article is about… Change Champions as a network of individuals who are appointed […]
I recently contributed to a thread about models and methodologies on LinkedIn and said “Are we making change too complicated? Isn’t it just is a simple matter of getting from A to B and ensuring your people join you on the journey! Just a thought!” In an update I posted regarding my article 70% of […]
Since Monday, 9th January 2015, my free Flevy download Practical Framework Approach to Change has been downloaded over 500 times.

The level of interest shown has spurred me into writing […]
So now to tackle another much debated change subject–that so-called 70% failure rate. How many times have we seen LinkedIn posts and discussions talking about this subject? As many as Change Management Methodologies, Project Management vs Change Management, and Change Management Certification!!! Before we start in earnest on the subject, let just have a look at some of the […]
Just as a “starter for 10,” when you type in “Change Management” as a search string into Google, you get in excess of 2 million hits. I have published many of my previous articles, because the issues I have tackled all seem to be the subject of continuing debates on LinkedIn and this one is […]
Another much written about and discussed subject is change resistance, so here is my take on the subject. Let me start by saying that life is all about change. From a personal perspective, we change continuously from the day we are born to the day we die. While some of these changes happen as a […]
First of all, let’s start with the word “professional.” Well, I tried searching Google and found this one in Business Dictionary: Person formally certified by a professional body of belonging to a specific profession by virtue of having completed a required course of studies and/or practice. And whose competence can usually be measured against an established […]
As a “seasoned” Change Manager, I have been involved in many diverse projects focusing on managing the business aspect of technology implementations; e.g. ERP (SAP, Oracle, Microsoft Dynamics), Core Banking Systems, Business Intelligence, Case Working and Knowledge Management solutions, and the like. To this day, I continue to be asked why is there a need […]
What is Business Readiness and Adoption? Would you talk to someone who isn’t paying attention? Would you make a movie if you didn’t know who would watch it? So why do projects often deliver to a Business that isn’t ready to receive or adopt! Business Readiness and Adoption is a measure of preparation. A business that is […]
