  2. 2. Tip #1: Lead the change with people in mind Leading change projects is the most important factor for success. That leading has to occur on all organisational levels. The first line of leadership is the direct project management of the project, while the second line is of how bought in company top management is to the project overall. The value of executive support should not be underestimated. Without proper sponsorship from the top management, change projects are very unlikely to succeed.

  3. 3. Tip #2: Communicate, communicate, communicate Communication is a very important success factor for driving change projects. Even difficult obstacles may be overcome more easily through good quality communication. You need to ask relevant questions and then listen to, understand and influence the stakeholders. FIRST SEEK TO UNDERSTAND AND THEN TO BE UNDERSTOOD! Page  3 © Janne Ohtonen - http://linkedin.com/in/janneohtonen
  4. 4. Tip #3: Focus on outcomes - not outputs and issues Move your thoughts from issues to outcomes. Many people are issue focused and see problems everywhere. Some of them dwell in those problems and cause delays. You can do better! Stop focusing on the issues and put all your energy into achieving outcomes rather than outputs. Do not even talk about the can’t, but talk about the can. Have a roadmap clear in your mind and steer the project to right direction regardless of the current situation.
