Eight steps to successfully implement change
DECIDE WHAT TO DO
3 - Develop the Change Vision and Strategy
What would the equivalent of becoming nomads and being "free"?
Is that are better future attractive enough?
Do we have a credible path to achieve that goal?
Is there a guide like the seagull, or a role model to learn from?
SET THE STAGE
1 - Create a Sense of urgency
Do we have a strong "why" for our change?
Are enough people convinced we must do something?
What is our iceberg or bottle model to help others see and feel the need for change?
2 - Pull together the Guiding Team
Do we have a core group of penguins who share that sense of urgency?
Are they working well together as a team?
Do they need to do a team building exercise (Squid hunt)?
MAKE IT HAPPEN
4 - Communicate for Understanding and Buy-In
Do we have communication tactics like ice-posters and talking circles?
Are there enough participants from every rank of the organisation helping us communicate the message?
5 - Empower Others to Act
Who are planners and scouts who believe in the vision and want to help make it a reality?
Have we made it clear where we want and need their help?
Do we have enough?
Is there a plan to deal with the barriers to success?
6 - Produce Short-Term Wins
Have we given the scouts a first goal that they can reach fast enough to win over the skeptics?
Can we organise something like a heroes day to recognise the contributions of our heroes and celebrate progress?
7 - Don't Let Up
Have we raised the bar for the next wave of scouts?
Which meetings are no longer needed and can be cancelled, so we don't exhaust ourselves?
What else can we do to keep the momentum going?
MAKE IT STICK
8 - Create a New Culture
Are we putting those who have helped make change happen in leadership roles?
Have the scouts been rewarded?
How can institutionalise change?
