  4. 4. Change Management – A Timeless Double Edged Sword “Whosoever desires constant success must change his conduct with the times” “There is nothing more difficult to take in hand, more perilous to conduct, or more uncertain in its success, than to take the lead in the introduction of a new order of things” Nicollo Machiavelli (1469-1527) Renaissance Philosopher
  5. 5. Kotter and Lewin Eight Steps Process (Kotter, 1995) Three Steps Model (Lewin, 1947) Reinforce The Changes Refreeze Consolidate, Reassess & Adjust Create & Reward Short Term Wins Change Empower Others: Remove Barriers WORLD POLITICS Communicate The Vision technology Economic SHOCKS competition SOCIAL TRENDS Nature of Workforce Create A New Vision Form A Coalition Establish A Sense Of Urgency Unfreeze
  6. 6. We’ve Got The Concept! “More Than Half Of Organisations Attempting Transformation Programs Failed” (Kotter, 1995) “Change Management programs has a 70% Failure Rate” (Kotter, 2012a; Keller & Aiken, 2008; Miller, 2002) “60% Change Project Fail to meet schedule, budget and quality goals” (IBM, 2008)
  7. 7. Major Change Challenges MAJOR CHANGE CHALLENGES (Source: IBM, 2008 ) Soft Factors Hard Factors Changing mindsets and attitudes 58% Corporate culture 49% Complexity is underestimated 35% Shortage of resources 33% 32% Lack of commitment of higher management Lack of change know how 20% Lack of transparency because of missing or wrong information Lack of motivation of involved employees 18% 16% 15% Change of process Change of IT systems Technology barriers 12% 8%

  9. 9. What’s The Problem? “Change Is Complex” Lewin assumes change is Linear where in current environment its no more applicable (Burnes, 1996; Higgs & Rowland, 2006) “Network Is In” Kotter’s 8 Steps is based on organisation with traditional hierarchal structure (Kotter, 2012b) “Need For Speed” GE Successfully Implemented Change, But It Took Them 5 Years! Is it fast enough today? (Jick, 1995; Kotter, 2012b) “Leadership Ability ” ..or the lack of it causes failure in change execution (Merell, 2012; Higgs & Rowland, 2010; Aiken et al., 2011; McKinsey, 2010; Miller, 2002)

Challenges Relevancy Across Country  Studies UK & US Based Fit To Model  Organisations May Not Fit Into Discussed Leadership & Approach Model  May Not Be Easy To Map & Transform To Proposed Model  Culture & Economic Status May Vary Effectiveness In Other Countries Business Evolution  Affects Relevancy Of Frameworks CHANGE MANAGEMENT Accelerated Structure  Can’t Change Overnight New Structure Running Parallel  Reporting Line & Politics May Hinder Progress  Continual Monitoring Of Effectiveness Of Change Program
  43. 43. Summary • Change is complex • There is no “single recipe” for successful Change Management • Major considerations needs to be given to: – Change Approach – Leadership Behaviour – Change Accelerators • While recognising challenges, organisations could use proposed models as a start and modify accordingly based on organisation context • Even if company is having competitive advantage, should not have false sense of security and continue to change to remain a leader as seen in Apple’s case
