A Useful Guide to Effective Change

Authors: Ian Clarke
ISBN: 978-1-906460-01-3


This Useful Guide is used to determine and monitor progress of your change initiative.

It is a 'live' document and is suitable for you if you are in a management position, responsible for making organisational changes, and would like to maximise the possibility of the change going to plan.

What the Useful Guide includes:

  • all 7 stages of the change process - Conception, Story Telling & Defining Success for the Decision Makers, Making the Decision to Invest in Planning, Planning (which may include running a pilot), Making the Decision to Go Ahead with the Change, Implementation and Closing the Change Programme and moving to Business As Usual.
  • a process for recording actions that have been taken and need to be taken
  • a checklist of 124 closed questions. If you can answer "Yes" to each question you will almost certainly achieve the change you want. The more questions you answer with "No" the more you reduce the chance of your change happening in the way you require.
  • 62 notes which explain the thinking behind some of the questions.

  • Upon completion you will be able to:

  • maximise the possibility of your change happening the way you require
  • take all the appropriate actions necessary to make your change happen the way you want it to (change management)
  • track and record all the actions and decisions taken during the change process

  • Feedback

  • 5/5 - 'Really easy to work through with sensible, logical, progression'.
