Thirty years of research by leadership guru Dr. John Kotter have proven that 70% of all major change efforts in organizations fail. Why do they fail? Because organizations often do not take the holistic approach required to see the change through.
However, by following the 8-Step Process outlined by Dr. Kotter, organizations can avoid failure and become adept at change. By improving their ability to change, organizations can increase their chances of success, both today and in the future. Without this ability to adapt continuously, organizations cannot thrive.
Dr. Kotter has proven over his years of research that The 8-Step Process for Leading Change will help organizations succeed in an ever-changing world.

  • 1. Leading Change Implementing Change Powerfully and Successfully
  • 2. Most major change initiatives— whether intended to boost quality, improve culture, or reverse a corporate death spiral—generate only lukewarm results. Many fail miserably. Why? John P. Kotter maintains that too many managers don’t realize transformation is a process, not an event. It advances through stages that build on each other. And it takes years. Pressured to accelerate the process, managers skip stages. But shortcuts never work. Why Transformation Efforts FailX
  • 3. Leaders Who Successfully Transform Businesses Follow Eight Steps Strategy To give your transformation effort the best chance of succeeding, take the right actions at each stage—and avoid common pitfalls. #
  • 4. Establishing a Sense of Urgency Actions Needed •Examine market and competitive realities for potential crises and untapped opportunities. •Convince at least 75% of your managers that the status quo is more dangerous than the unknown. 1 Pitfalls •Underestimating the difficulty of driving people from their comfort zones. •Becoming paralyzed by risks.
  • 5. Forming a Powerful Guiding Coalition2 Actions Needed •Assemble a group with shared commitment and enough power to lead the change effort. •Encourage them to work as a team outside the normal hierarchy. Pitfalls •No prior experience in teamwork at the top. •Relegating team leadership to an HR, quality, or strategic-planning executive rather than a senior line manager.
  • 6. Creating a Vision3 Actions Needed •Create a vision to direct the change effort. •Develop strategies for realizing that vision. Pitfalls •Presenting a vision that’s too complicated or vague to be communicated in five minutes.
  • 7. Communicating the Vision4 Actions Needed •Use every vehicle possible to communicate the new vision and strategies for achieving it. •Teach new behaviors by the example of the guiding coalition. Pitfalls •Undercommunicating the vision. •Behaving in ways antithetical to the vision.
  • 8. Empowering Others to Act on the Vision5 Actions Needed •Remove or alter systems or structures undermining the vision. •Encourage risk taking and nontraditional ideas, activities, and actions. Pitfalls •Failing to remove powerful individuals who resist the change effort.
  • 9. Planning for and Creating Short-Term Wins 6 Actions Needed •Define and engineer visible performance improvements. •Recognize and reward employees contributing to those improvements. Pitfalls •Leaving short-term successes up to chance. •Failing to score successes early enough (12-24 months into the change effort).
  • 10. Consolidating Improvements and Producing Still More Change 7 Actions Needed •Use increased credibility from early wins to change systems, structures, and policies undermining the vision. •Hire, promote, and develop employees who can implement the vision. •Reinvigorate the change process with new projects and change agents. Pitfalls •Declaring victory too soon—with the first performance improvement. •Allowing resistors to convince “troops” that the war has been won.
  • 11. Institutionalizing New Approaches8 Actions Needed •Articulate connections between new behaviors and corporate success. •Create leadership development and succession plans consistent with the new approach. Pitfalls •Not creating new social norms and shared values consistent with changes. •Promoting people into leadership positions who don’t personify the new approach.
