  • There is no debating we are in a time of change and that CM is critical to the successful delivery of reform. What role does CL play in this success? CL IS THE COMPETANCY THAT ENABLES CHANGE IN AN ORGANISATION. What does a leadership competency mean ? – From a project and CL perspective you need to make executive decisions around resources, strategy and scope, timing and dates.….. From a change management and CL perspective you need to take action and being active and visible, communicating and building a coalition What does enabling change look like - linking back to Lorraine's work its about being able to prepare yourself for the change by understanding the changes, adapting to them and developing competencies to manage the change. Then as CEB says its about leading employees through the change - introducing changes/ managing through transition and reinforcing celebrating success. Who are Change leaders – anyone that manages people in these times of change
  • Now we have a definition why is it important? AS David miller the founder of change works said in April this year ….if we look at Kotter most recent research he is saying that Management methodologies we used in 20th century are no longer sufficient and to drive results with increasing change requires a new type of leader - Mckinsey latest research Org success is based on CL being the catalyst and maintaining momentum. Prosci research shows that over the last 14 years active and visible leadership is the number one contributor to success. Finally Oxford university says that progress lies in the examination of change competencies and building a capability to manage change - finally looping back to David millers work on delivering transformational change he says change doesn’t happen when a new system is on place it happens when someone uses the system and their behaviour changes. So I as you the question is change leadership the difference between implementation and installation ? David says the value gap is achieved if you appoint a dedicated resource to lead the change, allow time for change to be rolled out and train your people to be effect in planning and executing change. Take a moment to think about your recent change activities do you have a value gap and what's missing to achieve implementation for your current change.
  • Where are we starting from in Government? Hold out report ……In the how is it report for 2012 capability to manage change was an ……so we have a baseline measurement to start from
  • So how do we start building change leadership to improve the perception of our people on our capability as leaders to manage change. In treasury we started with baseline our skills using a questionnaire with 30 questions that covers L, CM and PM - we then deep dived into change leadership competency looking at an additional 30 questions this then gave us areas to work on as individuals managers and as a leadership team - finally for senior leaders of change we developed roadmaps to support progress
  • So as you saw at an individual level you can have a roadmap that outlines key areas for development, management level you have areas to work on and areas of resistance and at a reform team level you can outline key change steps and translate them into leadership deliverables …. create a vision would mean the leader does……and at a sector level so for example you can manage for change capability using the PSC framework - future model PSC working on an even deeper piece around managing reform and change to meet the new requirements of our leaders around CL
  • So finally what does successful CL look like - 14 years of research across 650 organisations across 62 countries shows that if you have a effective sponsor , change leader then you will get a 85% success rate on your reforms vs 36% with an ineffective change leader. I know we all want that additional 49%. what would this look like in your organisation you would have active and visible leaders who are …..allocating resources and funding
  • What about you …Are you a change leader or do you have CL in your organisation – how do you know - I have had the privilege of working with Great change leaders and if I think about what a day in their life looked like then in Optus when we created OV Kevin …..in MS when we migrated across EMEA Elaine ….in Treasury through our Org change Phil and in Transformation MM is …………Is this what your day looks like or your leaders days look like who are in the midst of reform????
