You’ve got a great vision. You’ve got a great team. Your plan is rock solid. What you are getting ready to do is going to greatly improve the position of your organization. You’ve received the blessings of the upper echelons of management and now its time to put the pedal to the metal. You’ve got BIG plans and HIGH expectations, BUT the question becomes, who’s leading the charge on change? If your plan hasn’t incorporated addressing and overcoming the impacts of change, then be prepared for some collateral damage. Invest some time, effort, energy and resources into managing the changes and transitions. This creates buy-in, support, and allows you to keep a handle on what could derail your plan.
