  • In management and decision making, buy-in (as a verb or noun) signifies the commitment of interested or affected parties to a decision (often called stakeholders) to 'buy in' to the decision, that is, to agree to give it support, often by having been involved in its formulationThe process of lobbying for support for part of the influential group before suggesting an idea, arguing a case or submitting a report.In the sports world, buying in is a significant aspect of players/participants accepting goals and direction from a coach, leader or program. "Buying in" becomes synonymous with commitment and dedication. In the Spring of 2007, two film makers, Tim Breitbach(Dopamine) and Ralph Barhydt, started producing a film entitled, "Buying In" that explores the social issues of buying in based on the success of the boys' and girls' high school basketball teams at The Branson School, in Ross, California, who each won the State Championship in their division in 2007.
  • Orchestrating Buy In

    1. 1. Orchestrating Buy-In<br />The DNA for<br />Successful Change<br />1<br />
    2. 2. What is buy-in?<br />2<br />
    3. 3. Buy-In<br />The alignment of thought to action.<br />“I am, buying into that idea!”<br />“Count me in!”<br />“Yes, I agree, let’s get it done.”<br />“I understand.” <br />“I getit.”<br />3<br />
    4. 4. Lao Tzu Tao Te Ching<br />“The way of subtle influence”<br />Superior leaders are those whose existence is merely known;<br />The next best are loved and honored;<br />The next best are ridiculed.<br />Those who lack belief<br />Will not in turn be believed<br />But when the command comes from afar<br />And the work is done, the goal achieved<br />The people say, “We did it naturally.”<br />4<br />
    5. 5. Sixth Century Buy-In<br />The best leaders are unknown, the people say they did it themselves naturally.<br />Conversely the leader did not seek fame<br />The leader did not seek acclaim<br />The leader lead others to accomplish the objective as if it were their own natural way. <br />5<br />
    6. 6. The agenda<br />Personal<br />5 Ws<br />Avoiding failure<br />Winning<br />Success looks like<br />Case Studies (B2B)<br />Consumer (B2C)<br />Change review<br />Board of Directors<br />The Toughest Buy-In<br />Back to Business<br />Setting up for success<br />6<br />
    7. 7. Personal life<br />Getting the Family, Spouse, Children to buy-in.<br />7<br />
    8. 8. Start with the end in mind.<br />Who will benefit if you are successful.<br />How will they benefit if you are successful?<br />How will they acknowledge this benefit?<br />How will it be measured?<br />8<br />
    9. 9. Family<br />Everyone with a family (that is all of us), have experienced the challenge of trying to get one member or an other of the family to buy-in.<br />Maybe it is the children<br />Maybe it’s a grandparent<br />Maybe it’s a in-law<br />Maybe it’s a spouse<br />Regardless we have all shared the experience.<br />9<br />
    10. 10. Techniques<br />The two most common techniques are<br />Persuasion<br />Edict<br />Business reported these results from similar techniques:<br />81% used persuasion or edict. Persuasion failed 53% of the time , Edict failed 65% of the time.<br />Informally, I have surveyed audiences for their results, the similarity of results is striking.<br />10<br />
    11. 11. What Works?<br />Thinking about your own experience would you agree:<br />Seeing it from their point of view – helps<br />Talking about what good happens for them when they buy-in – helps<br />Uncovering the risk as they see it – helps<br />Experiencing a small success at the change helps -<br />11<br />
    12. 12. Removing the Training Wheels<br />1st reaction – I can’t.<br />I will fall.<br />I will get hurt.<br />Someone will see me fall.<br />They will make fun of me.<br />I don’t know how.<br />You promise you won’t let go?<br />12<br />
    13. 13. Did YOU?<br />Did you YELL?<br />Did you Demonstrate?<br />Did you Support?<br />Did you encourage Failures? (fail fast, fail often, fail cheap)<br />Did you stand by and watch as they got it wrong?<br />Did you allow them unlimited Opportunities to get it Right?<br />Were you the biggest FAN?<br />Did you encourage every small success?<br />So what is different NOW?<br />13<br />
    14. 14. The Wheels Came Off<br />And they never looked back.<br />They found their own balance.<br />You never got the credit, nor did you try to take it – it was always about them<br />You never reminded them of what they owe.<br />You encouraged them to take the next risk <br />A ride to the end of block ~ alone.<br />14<br />
    15. 15. Orchestrating Buy-In<br />Family • Board of Directors • B2C • B2B<br />Regardless of the stakeholder<br />The steps are the same<br />Start with the end in mind.<br />How will they benefit from the success?<br />How will they acknowledge the benefit?<br />How will it be measured?<br />“When you help enough other people get what they want you get what you want.” ~ ZigZiggler<br />15<br />
    16. 16. Why Buy-In?<br />Most change initiatives fail –<br />From Buy-outs to <br />Cost reduction to<br />New incentive plans<br />Estimates vary from 70-80% of change initiatives fail to meet their expectations.<br />Most common reported cause – lack of buy-in.<br />16<br />
    17. 17. To avoid failure - <br />17<br />
    18. 18. Start with the end in mind.<br />Who will benefit if you are successful.<br />How will they benefit if you are successful?<br />How will they acknowledge this benefit?<br />How will it be measured?<br />18<br />
    19. 19. The Reorg. is fairly straightforward.<br />19<br />
    20. 20. Success Rates Depend<br />On the criteria used<br />Generally financial performance and shareholder value issues are constructed to be successful<br />Behavioral change, like client satisfaction or management behavior, has proven to be somewhat less successful <br />20<br />
    21. 21. Failure factors<br />Half hearted or No Buy-In from stakeholders<br />Paralysis by analysis<br />Consultants silver bullet syndrome<br />Wrong measures<br />21<br />
    22. 22. Even good ideas fail<br />By the time we finish this presentation, over 46 businesses will have ceased operations. <br />3 will have filed for bankruptcy<br />By the end of the day 2.1 million new businesses will have followed their lead. <br />22<br />
    23. 23. The GAP<br />“91% of business people are as confident <br />as ever in their ability to make decisions.”<br /> – Dr. P. Nutt (818 surveyed)<br />The book Business Think; p.16 & 17 outline why these decisions fail<br />2/3 never explored alternatives<br />81% used persuasion or edict. Persuasion failed 53% of the time , Edict failed 65% of the time.<br />7% considered long-term priorities <br />23<br />
    24. 24. Stinking Thinking<br />Thinking is the nucleus of business ~ it drives not only what gets created and launched, but also what lives on. It’s the “big bang” that sets everything else in motion. If you want to change your results, you must first change your thinking. <br />~ Dave Marcum, Steve Smith & Mahan Khalsa from business THINK<br />24<br />
    25. 25. It is not always easy to see<br />What you need to see.<br />The old adage measure twice<br />Cut once was sound advice.<br />When it comes to <br />Orchestrating Buy-In<br />Don’t leave stakeholders guessing.<br />25<br />
    26. 26. 60% of Statistics are lies<br />In a report on more than 40,000 organizations, Martin Smith reported in his book Success rates for different types of organizational change published success rates vary widely depending on the type of change.<br />26<br />
    27. 27. How to get off on the right foot.<br />27<br />
    28. 28. Silver Bullet <br />The consultant Silver Bullet approach <br />The consultant is smart<br />Therefore if the consultant tells us what he knows we become smart<br />Problem solved <br />Not so fast – <br />Transfer of knowledge is not DOING<br />DOING something different is what counts.<br />28<br />
    29. 29. The 5 ws<br />29<br />
    30. 30. Success is in the 5 Ws<br />What<br />Why<br />Who<br />When<br />Where<br />30<br />
    31. 31. What?<br />Starting with the end in mind – what needs to be different? (Be very specific)<br />When you get what you want what will it look like? (seek specificity) <br />Who will know? (exactly by name / title)<br />Why is it important? (To whom is it important?)<br />How will it be measured? (give me an example)<br />What will be result for the participants? (How do they know this is meaningful work?)<br />31<br />
    32. 32. Why?<br />Why does this particular thing need to change NOW?<br />Who is being impacted by the lack of this change? (Specifically what is the impact?)<br />Who will be impacted when the change in completed? (Besides you who else?)<br />When does this need to be finished? <br />What is it costing us not to change?<br />32<br />
    33. 33. Who?<br />Who made the decision to seek this change?<br />Who else was involved in the process?<br />How were they impacted?<br />Who needs to be involved in making the change happen?<br />What is expected by this individual as a result of this change?<br />How will it impact anyone involved or effected?<br />33<br />
    34. 34. When?<br />When did you first notice the need for this change?<br />How did that occur?<br />When does the change need to be in place?<br />Why is that the target date? Or Result?<br />Who will know? When will they know? How will they know?<br />34<br />
    35. 35. Where?<br />Where has the need become self evident?<br />Where shall we being?<br />Where shall we engage others? How shall we engage others? What is in it for them?<br />Where will we first notice the change impact? (LPI)<br />Where will we acknowledge the results?<br />35<br />
    36. 36. Using Questions<br />The Socratic Method: Socrates used questions to get his students to see the lessons he wanted them to learn. <br />This method works for all type of learning experiences. <br />It is particularly powerful when employed within experiential learning opportunities.<br />Often it is useful to gain clarification by asking example questions – like the ones that follow.<br />36<br />
    37. 37. Evidence Questions<br />How will we know if we improve brand loyalty?<br />How did we become convinced we were losing client trust?<br />What specifically pointed out that quality was down?<br />What will we observe to know business acumen has improved?<br />37<br />
    38. 38. Specificity<br />Success or failure of your Orchestrated Buy-in may often be determined by the degree of specificity you were able to solicit during your step up, assessment or evaluation.<br />Good beginning beget good endings.<br />38<br />
    39. 39. winning<br />39<br />
    40. 40. Winning<br />Teams win when they work together.<br />It is easy to stop a single individual on a mission.<br />It is more difficult to stop 100 people with a passion for an objective.<br />40<br />
    41. 41. How does the Coach do it?<br />Consider how the coach does it.<br />Explain the rules<br />Practice new things off the field<br />Encourage<br />Demonstrate<br />Re-think everything<br />41<br />
    42. 42. Another Voice – Dr. Paul Nutt<br />Ohio State Unv., Fischer College of Business<br />356 Companies studied<br />19 years <br />“more than 50% of all decisions failed; they were quickly abandoned, only partially implemented, or never were adopted at all. “<br />42<br />
    43. 43. Confidence UP Success DOWN<br />If the numbers are statistically accurate – one major cause of failure in any change initiative is the decision makers unwillingness to seek advice, or question his/her decisions once made.<br />Often the real challenge is WHY are we making this change?<br />43<br />
    44. 44. Hire the whole unit<br />Jack Stack reported in his book The Great Game of Business that he learned the value of engaging the employee wholly. <br />He asked the question, why just pay for the worker from the neck down?<br />When you get their head in the game everyone wins. <br />A believer in the power of buy-in.<br />44<br />
    45. 45. Are we fooling ourselves?<br />Here is a question that should be asked by someone with every change initiative undertaken.<br />Followed by – is this the right RISK to be taking now?<br />Well thought out answers to these two questions can avoid many of the failures of other change projects. <br />45<br />
    46. 46. Ballpark to Boardroom<br />When we examine the companies that win consistently we find many similarities to sport teams that win consistently.<br />Why?<br />No “I” in team <br />Everyone knows how to keep score <br />Everyone knows what it takes to win all the time<br />46<br />
    47. 47. David Nadler<br />Author of Champions of Change<br />Difficult to create value afresh<br />Corning – 150 yrs old<br />Committed itself to innovation<br />Resisted defining itself by products<br />Defines itself by ways it develops products<br />47<br />
    48. 48. When buy-in works<br />Everyone wins<br />48<br />
    49. 49. Innovation<br />Statistically companies that innovate are 5X more successful than their competitors.<br />Companies that learn to create patentable solutions are 20X more successful.<br />It is not about the patent – it is about the process<br />49<br />
    50. 50. In every case BUY-IN WINS<br />Examine any of these issues and you will find team effort, and employee buy-in.<br />Ask people at Corning what they do… <br />Corning is the world leader in specialty glass and ceramics<br />Jack Stack’s company <br />Started with D/E 800:1 – share value $10<br />Today D/E 6:1 – share value $310<br />50<br />
    51. 51. More Buy-In Success<br />Michelin <br />D/E 8.3:1<br />D/E 1.6:1<br />Diesel Mechanic Shop (14 man)<br />Took 5 min. out an hr. effort <br />Added $4K a week to the net profit <br />51<br />
    52. 52. More Buy-In Success<br />Bank <br />Trained employees – within a week<br />Existing customers brought in new customers<br />Attorney<br />Trained employees and Partners<br />Referrals increased 30% the following month <br />52<br />
    53. 53. More Buy-In Success<br />Professional Svc Firm<br />Held one meeting<br />A/R was reduced by 50% within 90 days<br />Manufacturing Firm<br />Does Innovation Workshop<br />New product captures 90% market share <br />53<br />
    54. 54. Buy-In Works<br />Our examples can continue – <br />The point – Buy-In Works<br />It works to create an unstoppable force <br />It works to get everyone understanding how to win<br />People generally don’t come to work looking to fail or be a problem – they want to make a contribution.<br />54<br />
    55. 55. Gung Ho!<br />This Ken Blanchard book – tells us about the value of Meaningful Work<br />People want to understand how their work makes the world a better place. <br />If you don’t have employee buy-in, it would not be possible to understand “meaningful work”.<br />55<br />
    56. 56. Steven Covey<br /> “Business basically is run by the economic rules of the marketplace, but organizations are run by the cultural rules of the workplace. They are often not in alignment.”<br />Buy-in is about gaining alignment.<br />56<br />
    57. 57. Symptoms of Nonalignment<br />General confusion about the Goals.<br />People believe in the mission statement but don’t act like it in day – to – day activities.<br />A gap exists between dreamers and implementers.<br />Silos abound.<br />Right hand doesn’t know what the left is doing.<br />Change is like a Slinky<br />57<br />
    58. 58. More warning signs<br />While hard data may inform our intellect, it is <br />largely soft data that generates wisdom… Henry Mintzberg, The Rise and Fall of Strategic Planning.<br />Richard Neustadt, Harvard Unv. “It is not information of a general sort that helps. Not surveys, not the bland amalgams. It is the odds and ends of tangible detail that pieced together… illuminate the underside of issues.”<br />58<br />
    59. 59. Keeping Score<br />Everyone knows how to keep score<br />How important is this?<br />90% of surveyed employees believe their company’s profit margins are greater than 70%.<br />DoC reports &gt;80% of small business owners can not properly interpret their own financial reports.<br />Winning is easy when you know how to keep score.<br />59<br />
    60. 60. Business Score Card<br />Finance is the way we keep Score in Business.<br />60<br />
    61. 61. Understanding the Language<br />It is hard to do business when you don’t understand the language.<br />The language of business is finance.<br />Therefore the more people who understand the language of finance the better the performance of the business.<br />61<br />
    62. 62. CASE studies<br />B2B – getting on the same page = Buy-In<br />62<br />
    63. 63. Case Studies<br />We will examine the use of buy-in to facilitate results over various industries and differing challenges. Success is do to the teams.<br />Cross functional teams formed with assigned ownership <br />These only work when you have orchestrated buy-in – <br />When the team gets the 5 Ws and owns them.<br />63<br />

    134. 134. Lessons Learned<br />Strategic Change, internally or externally, requires buy-in from the impacted parties to be successful.<br />Today – with instant communications customers announce their position on your product, offering, or service to the world via blogs, Twitter, Facebook, and email.<br />Employees demonstrate their support by voting with their engagement.<br />71<br />
    135. 135. Consumer (B2C) buy-in<br />Look for the hidden agenda<br />72<br />
    136. 136. What would your company do?<br />If you had a product that was delivered in a box & new designs were under evaluation.<br />Would your company:<br />Print up hundreds of versions and display them publically and take a poll?<br />Ask the marketing people what they thought and then go to market?<br />Review the designs with a management committee who votes?<br />Which of these creates buy-in?<br />73<br />
    137. 137. Consumer Products<br />Even CiCi’s Pizza has grasp the value of experiential marketing.<br />Everyone entering was asked to choose from 9 different delivery boxes<br />Each box had a different design<br />Choose the design you like best<br />This is the most basic of marketing getting the customer to tell you what they like.<br />74<br />
    138. 138. CiCi’s Results<br />The jury is still out.<br />Not all votes have been counted.<br />What happened when customers were asked about a delivery box?<br />Most of them never get their pizza delivered.<br />Was this a waste of time and money?<br />75<br />
    139. 139. What were the results we wanted?<br />When marketing asked the question, what was the answer?<br />Create awareness of our delivery service!<br />Engage the customers, show them they are important to us.<br />Demonstrate our willingness to listen to any customer. <br />Oh, buy the way pick a new box design.<br />76<br />
    140. 140. Alternatives<br />CiCi’s could have run an internet poll.<br />They could have run a major TV ad campaign.<br />They could have let the marketing research team decide. <br />They could have let a management team decide.<br />77<br />
    141. 141. Outcomes<br />CiCi’s is running a promotion $3.99 buffet lunch M-F.<br />This brings in customers.<br />Customers are engage in box survey.<br />Customers talk about box survey at lunch and with others.
